“Most relaxing vacation ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

Just got back from a 7 day vacation on Palm Island and can't say enough about it..it was perfect! From the moment Horace and his staff welcome you on the dock with a rum punch to the time they see you off, everyone (and I mean everyone!) could not have been nicer..so intent on making sure we were having a great experience. My husband celebrated his birthday while there, and Margaret made sure it was extra special. Grafton seemed to be every where, making sure everything was just right and always greeting us by name. And we really enjoyed Kenneth, with his big smile and great drinks! Also have to mention Luke, Olive and Kevin who were also terrific.
The team has really found the right balance between being attentive and helpful and leaving you alone to just relax and enjoy..and Horace leads by example, setting just the right tone.
The island itself is paradise... Beautiful beaches for swimming, snorkeling, or just lounging in hammocks or chaises; trails around the island to bike or hike; and friendly wildlife..I think the iguanas actually pose for pictures!
We definitely decompressed and had the relaxing week we were looking for...when we left, Horace told us we were part of the family now.. Well, we certainly feel that way, and we'll be going 'home' again I'm sure!

My wife and I just returned from a week at palm Island Resort and were treated to a relaxing and blissful week. the service was superb and the staff was exceptionally friendly and courteous. The resort was beautiful and the grounds were well-kept. Horace the general manager and/or Cecilia the assistant mgr were at every meal chatting with guests and making sure that our stay was exceptional and it was!!! We became attached to the staff and were especially fond of Margaret, Shereline, Olive, Kevin , Kenneth, and Grafton. We will definitely return soon!!

Room Tip: We followed the advice of others and asked for beachfront cottage 17, 18 , or 19. We were in #19 an...

This past year my husband and I took a vacation to Palm Island. We booked our trip for a one week vacation. I know a lot of people have been describing Palm Island as paradise but there is no other word for this tropical heaven.
When booking a trip online you always wonder if the pictures in their ad are truly what you see. When arriving it was far more beautiful then we imagined. Upon arrival we were greeted by the manager James Lane and his welcoming staff. They made us feel like a part of their family right away.
The room that we first stayed in was decorated in a beautiful tropical taste. It was very clean and spacious. Dining on the island was another wonderful bonus to this vacation. There was never a meal that we dislike. The restaurant and bar staff were awesome.
The island itself was picture perfect. This private island met both of our needs. It was quiet, small and relaxing. We went swimming in the warm, blue water. We also went snorkeling and had many long walks around the island.
We loved this place so much we extended our stay for another week. The staff was very helpful in changing our flight arrangements to accommodate this extension. We have booked our next trip for 2014 and will be staying for three weeks.

We went to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary to get away from it all and it was heavenly. We were treated like royalty, the service was second to none and every member of the incredible staff knew our names. The General Manager Horace visited the restaurant every evening and personally greeted every guest by name to ensure their stay was all they had hoped for and it was. The Grenadines are fabulous and The Palm Island Resort is a little diamond sparkling in the amazing tourquoise waters. Can't wait to return and will definitely!

Our Honeymoon was a chance to decompress from all the wedding planning (and life) madness! More service during down times would have been nicer (room service, beach and pool bar service for example) is our ONLY complaint. If you don't like birds at breakfast or super low energy evenings this might not be the place for you in late August. Loved every moment!

And old friend and I visited Palm Island Resort and had a wonderfully relaxing 7 days. It was quite a trip to get there and a little bit of a scary small plane ride from Barbados, but well worth it. Staff was waiting on the dock with Rum punches, we were taken to our room straight away, didn't have to check in til the next morning - very thoughtful because we were tired. Our room was right on the water and nicely appointed. A little refrigerator, large bathroom, comfy bed, table and chairs and a nice patio out front. No phones, no TV, nothing to distract from the beautiful surroundings. The staff were all wonderful and always helpful. Food was yummy; drinks plentiful. We played tennis one day, a little too hot, but the court is wonderful. Rode bikes around the island one morning, walked all the way around the island another morning. Collected shells and sea glass, ate, drink, read books, played games and really enjoyed each others company. It's the place to go to really get away from it all. It was pretty hot in August and there were quite a few mosquitos, but there was repellent in our room and air conditioning worked well. Next time I'd bring some cards & maybe a board game for when and if it rains, non-scented sunscreen (the sand flies loved my Hawaii Tropic) and that's about it.

Room Tip: We had room 10 - right on the water - perfect! Only had to walk a few steps to the beach and get se...

can't think of a better place to escape the world. No phones or TV, lots of sun, food and drink. Wake up the birds and fall asleep to the swaying Palms. The Grenadines are beautiful. Great diving and snorkeling. I can't say enough

Room Tip: We loved our Beachfront room
