We arrived to an odd location, not a normal Marriott experience. The check in desk was small, not what one would expect for a large hotel, or resort. Luckily there were no queues, it would have been a very long wait. Check in staff were good, friendly, no issues at all. In our group were two mums, one dad, and 5 kids (ages - 14,11,11,10,8) We headed over to the kids pool area (the main reason we selected this hotel venue). The whole area was very inferior looking. Small pool area, slide was not too bad, the surroundings seemed very drab, and didn't seem clean at all. The bar looked half stocked, the service was slow. No one greeted us with a smile, we didnt feel welcome at all, we felt like we were a burden to the few staff that were there. We had to try and clean the table ourselves, there was dirty water on the floor area by the bar, where the tables are, some of this was spoilt drink, that we had to ask someone to clean up. Food came fairly fast, but was worse than a fast food place for quality. Trash bags left out by the bin. no one handing out pool towels (they were hidden, so we had to grab them ourselves). The kids complained that the pool water was freezing - this is disgraceful, you are saving money on not heating the pool! Pool bar shut at 6pm, along with slide, and waterfall. So bad. You have to pay for beach lounge - cheapskate hotel! The rooms are actually very good, and worthy of the price. If you just need to stay in the room, and you dont need to use their restaurants, or kids pool then you will be fine. For us, basically we will never come back, nor could i recommend this. Far superior hotels 45 mins south.

I had a confirmed reservation on booking.com long time ago, before Coronavirus became a pandemic, on 20/01/2020 for 12 nights between 18.10.2020 and 30.10.2020. I wanted to double check my reservation with hotel just to make sure that everything is fine since lots of things happened in last 10 months. I tried to reach them all possible ways I can find, including booking.com customer service, direct message, instagram, facebook messages, calls, emails... Neither me nor customer service DID RECEIVE ANY RESPONSE FROM THE HOTEL. It is a 12 hours of flight + 4000usd reservation which I definetely be sure that everything is planned before my trip. I also could not cancel my reservation because hotel need to approve but Again no response and it is not successful. So now I am in a position where I have 10 days to my trip without understanding what is going to happen. What booking.com suggests that go there and checkin, if you face any issues, reach us and we will find you any available other options. I cant even go to hotel without seaplane transfer. So what will happen is I will go there, no one will meet me in the Male airport for seaplane transfer and look how my dream honeymoon became a disaster. THANK YOU PALM BEACH ISLAND AND RESORT FOR BEING SUCH A HELPFULL IN THOSE MOMENTS. THANK YOU TOO BOOKING.COM.

This was our second time at Palm Beach, first time was 5 years ago under different management. We spent 2 beautiful weeks over Christmas & New Year here this time and we were incredibly sad to leave! The service was spot on from the moment we got onto the seaplane at Male to the moment we left. We stayed in a family beach villa (2 storey villa) on the sunrise side. The rooms are simply furnished which is absolutely fine because you do not spend much time in the room at all. It was spotlessly clean, a huge thank you to our wonderful room cleaner Arif who even took time to create memorable & thoughtful bed pictures for us & our daughters throughout the holiday. He also made sure we always had plenty of clean towels every day which is sometimes an issue on holiday in other places. The room is right on the beach. We enjoyed the beautiful sunrise every morning from the balcony and could see sea turtles bobbing up and down in the sea right in front of the villa every day. The spectacular spit shaped beach at the end of the island was reachable by bikes which we all enjoyed, we spent every day from morning to sunset there. The beach was kept spotlessly clean and tidy by the fantastic beach boy Amzad. Thank you for being incredibly attentive and kind to us and our daughters, every day you greeted us with a smile! The Thundi beach bar was perfect for drinks. A huge thank you to Rambabu & Nazrul for keeping us well hydrated and always serving us with a smile & kindness. The restaurant was wonderful. We had a Premium All In package including all food & drinks which was great. Food was delicious and varied every day. The chefs are amazing and we so kind and thoughtful regarding my dietary needs, making sure I had gluten & dairy free items every day. A huge thank you to Chef Karunaratna AKA the Pasta Chef, who set aside food made especially for me every day without fail even without asking! The waiting staff were excellent, always there refilling water and always remembering what we wanted to drink. A huge thank you to Tammim, your kindness and gentleness with our daughters was greatly appreciated. The Christmas & New Year Gala dinners were beautiful and so carefully thought out by the restaurant staff, it was truly special. Thank you to AJ (my girls call you the Photo Guy!), the pictures during the children's activities were fantastic, thank you for sending them to us. Even though there is no Kids Club, there were activities planned for adults & children every morning & afternoon which meant our daughters could go off on their bikes and have some fun without us. The island is safe for the children to cycle around alone. We had an amazing boat trip to a desert island and even saw a huge pod of dolphins on the way back which was special. Thank you to the guys at the Dive Centre for making that trip special. The sea-life around the island is spectacular. We saw reef sharks, manta rays & stingrays, green sea turtles, a myriad of colourful fish right by the shore every day, you can never get bored of the sea-life here! We spent our time snorkelling and spending time walking around the island on the beautiful beach. The Coconut Spa was amazing. We had 6 massages in total and the ladies there are fantastic, thank you so much (I can't remember all of your names). Thank you to the resort director Shanko for being ever present and kind, we look forward to coming back again in the future. One point I have to mention is that some of the island needs some TLC since change of management but renovation is slowly taking place and the resort is still fabulous!!! We look forward to going back in the future and definitely recommend Palm Beach Island Resort & Spa.

Wonderful island with mesmerizing natural beauty and peace.. really we enjoyed our family vacation with peace, solitude and joy. Must visit this place. All area of this beautiful island is full with well maintained greenary and italian style villas , suites etc in front of Crystal clear clean beaches. We booked 6 beautiful beach villas on October 23, 2019 with 16 members of the family, the location of each beach villa was wonderful, it was here to find out who called real peace of mind. All the best words of praise are in the tourism dictionary are dedicated to the humble staff of here. very co-operative staff, Excellent resturant with best food , nice room service, buggies service, bicycle service, amazing pool area with bar, and indoor - outdoor sports are mind blowing, Highly recommended to book this resort.

To be honest we were not expecting much more from 4 star resort, and reviews that were posted are giving clear picture of resort. However there are several things that are not up to 4 star resort standart...Food that was served on buffet is well made and rather delicious, however it was very limited when it comes to variety of food,especially brekfast. We knew that wifi is not available in rooms and that's fine, however we were told that we can pay additionally for this but minimum is 4 days :), witch is 100 dollars, and I needed only one day ... By this you can clearly see that they don't want to accommodate guest request instead they want to rip you off as much as possible. All inclusive package does not have single cocktail included, you have to pay additionaly...You can not event get bottle of water in the beach... All in all, I wish I can say that this was good value for money, since this is what we were aiming this year, but unfortunately it is not, we have visited other 4 star resorts in Maldives and I can definitely say that this is not good value for money, to be fair it's not worst either but you can find better place.

There are places in the world that are unreal beautiful, an Maldives are! But have a great experience is made by the right team and premium customer service and Palm Beach is beyond to make you feel surrounded by friendly people that they priority is make the guests to feel relax and happy! It was our honeymoon and we enjoyed every single moment there with waitress like Knut at the buffet, looking after us with a smile always, being incredible kind with an incredible premium service ,same as the rest of the waitress! We love the Tindhi bar with stuuuning beach with spot of your dream to relax and treat yourself with some cocktails or enjoy some water sports at the same Time,again incredible service from Rambo which is a friend to us now,sooo nice guy who enjoys his job delivering service with passion about it, such nice guy! Personally I love to learn about the culture and explore new places being active, Palm Beach has the most professional Diving Center with incredible free snorkel trips and affordable experiences to dive on their beautiful reefs full of fishes that are soo cute! I was impressed with the turtles,sharks,ray and even we watched dophins 🤩 ,The team is lead by biologists like Bebe,who is the founder of the dicing center and knows everything about maldivian reefs ecosystem,doing free nursery snorkel experience teaching you the names of the corals,fishes ,etc everything about the sea and the world under the water, He is looking after the corals maintaince of the island reef with passion and does research taking broken corals and looking after to help them growth,incredible.. no words about his amazing knowledge and his kidness loving looking after the planet.definately we need more people like him in this world! Thanks so much to Husain ,anoher incredible knowledgeable diver and biologist with a good sence of humor,,we had so much fun at the snorkel trips with therest of the divers team,there are really nice people with passion about what they do,definitely much it wass so nice to learn so much about the sea with them,more that we was expected. if you like to be active they have and also really nice football,basketball,tennis ,squash,paddle,volleyball facilities to play with incredible views!! In the night the sky is full of stars and the sunset are just amazing.Regarding to the management team ,we had to give a huge thank you to EJ and the costumer experience team,because we had an issue with our booking and even it was our travel agency fault and nothing to do with the Resort,,they tried to fix to make our stay pleasant and make us happy,something that not many place will do, definitely they know how to offer a great experience,they look after us a d make our stay unforgettable with every detail. We remember nostalgically the moment that EJ and the management team was saying bye to us from the island while we was flying waching the from the window,so lovely! So ,yes it was the perfect trip in every sense, we learned all about this incredible place,feeling like in a family a relax place with really personal treat and a place that I will recommend to everyone that wants to experience in one of the most beautiful place in the world! Definitely we will back to meet the team again and the tasty all inclusive food,missing the grill fish and noodles 💕💕

Palm Beach is a beautiful island. Very green and spacious, what we really appreciate. You can use either bikes or bugy service to get around. The beaches, water and colors are stunning - like in paradise! ❤ Food is delicious, especially the fresh fish in all different kinds is great. The hospitality is unbeatable! Refurbishment of the resort and also broader offer for kids is in process. Once that is in place it will be the perfect place for a dream holiday with your family!

Stayed here in oktober/november 2018! Of all the islands this is the one we like to come back to. Hopefully bring som family members of all ages! There is something to enjoy for everyone if wanted. I adored the "private" beach in front of our cabin, snorkeling and easy life at the beach bar reading my book. Staff is so friendly and takes good care of you and your needs! Food was absolutely marvelous! We enjoyed it so much that we are discussing with family now about going back in Dec./January 2019/20
