“Like Johnny Cash says, I've been everywhere man, and this place it TOPS for Couples...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

From the moment we got off the boat, everything went smooth. Rather than bore you with the same old stuff, I'll give you 3-4 stories/examples as to what made this trip great for us....

1. We booked with a group of 8 other Couples last year. A Hurricane started heading to Virginia, where we live. The wives were concerned about kids being alone so we decided to cancel, the day before. LPI worked out a deal so we could come back. They had a bunch of empty rooms and lost money, and there was no storm here, but choose to work with us. They didn't have to.

2. My wife and I have eating disorders. They discreetly worked with us on each and every meal. No problem. Need to take certain foods off the Buffett for later, no problem.

3. Everything we did, they had a great staff there to help you. Whatever you wanted. Massages, snorkeling, etc. the name of the game is service here. Famous people, discretion, privacy and a relaxing spot in one of the most beautiful places anywhere around...

Thanks to all the staff!

See you guys again soon.

Answer: yes! This place is for people who are used to having anything they want, when they want it. International clientele, scuba diving, 5-star dining, secluded atmosphere. I especially loved the boat shuttle to our room. Breakfast in a beautiful cottage, out door showers, what memories!

Room Tip: Every room is secluded and private.

The other reviews are spot on! We couldn't imagine such a setting in the U.S. Beautiful doesn't describe it... "idillyic" comes close, it's blissful, peaceful, picturesque. When we arrived we felt all choked up it was just unbelievable. Definitely a wonderful place to reconnect with your spouse. There's not a single thing I could think of, that could be done better than Little Palm. Perfect!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are great

Wow... What an idyllic island to chill out completely. No kids, no cell phones...just cocktail of the day and outstanding service.
Our romantic cabin was divine with the traditional outdoor shower. The food is outstanding and you really can not ask for a better location. Attention to detail on every level and the staff are top notch.
We booked massages before hand as the spa is it very big.
We went with another couple who had been there before and were spoiled with the Chet's table... What an experience. Laze by the pool, have a shrimp cocktail salad and enjoy the cocktail of the day. Go on a canoe ride or use one of their motorized boats... See the little deer around... Guaranteed relaxation!

Room Tip: All rooms appeared superb and scattered around the island to present ocean views.

Where do You start with describing Lil Palm? Its an Island off of an Island for Starters. If that's not unusual enough Well come see it for yourself. We love coming here for Sunday Brunch. Its a little Pricey, but the experience will be a memory that lasts forver. This place was originally built to be the setting of a movie, but has ben transformed into the Keys absolute best place to visit and stay.. If you can afford it, this is the best place to stay and eat in the Florida Keys

Room Tip: Here they are all Super

Your every need is anticipated from the moment you pull up to the thatched roof reception at their private dock. While they are parking your car and gathering your luggage, you are greeted with their wonderful signature drink the Gumby Slumber. Then it's a nice 10 minute boat ride to begin your island paradise. Someone greets you at your arrival and gives you a tour of the island and all it has to offer you. One of the first things to learn in these offerings, it the no cell phones. True paradise! Rooms are large and spacious with living room, bath (with tub) & outdoor shower and bedroom with four poster bed & netting, outdoor patio for dining and a hammock. Each bungalow has a name and also has your last name spelled out in wooden block letters. The entire staff seems to know what you need & are there with it, before you know you need it. The food was lovely. Dinner can be indoors in the air conditioning or on the outdoor covered patio or right on the beach to truly enjoy the sunset. After dinner you can go the the lounge/bar to enjoy some great live piano & sip on a night cap. There are Key Deer (beautiful, miniature deer) around, so watch those drinks around the pool or bread baskets at dinner. You can fish from the arrival dock, kayak around the mango grove, try out paddle boarding, or just relax & enjoy a book on the beach or poolside. Don't miss the snorkel trip out to Looe Key or a massage at the spa. We celebrated our 25th anniversary and you can't find a more perfect, romantic, relaxing & pampering place. To steal a quote from another review, the staff is so lovely, polished, happy, helpful & professional. The first night was full capacity (30 bungalows), but you have a feeling your entire stay that you have the island to yourselves or just a few people. "No" or "we don't offer that" is not in their vocabulary. You hate to have to finally leave, but promise yourself that you will return.

Arrival at Little Palm Island Resort a magical experience. I would recommend booking a massage at the spa shortly after your Arrival so you can relax and slip into the island mode. Hammocks are placed around the island trail perfect for hammock hopping.
