Palm Island Resort Review
Shiela K. from Parker, Colorado recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in October, 2018
Everything was great, except for a few things that need to be fixed. The main thing was the door leading from the master bedroom to the deck, the lock is broke, needs to be fixed or replaced. The biggest problem though was the mosquitos I was bitten so many times that I got a terrible reaction to the bites, I'm now taking perdnisone because I had such a terrible reaction and it's been 9 days. Many other people had the same problem. Palm Island needs to spray or do something to solve this problem.

July 4th Vacation
Bridgett H. from Valrico, FL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 6 days in July, 2018
We love Palm Island and have been coming on and off for at least 20 years. While the location of the unit was great, beach front and next to the pool, the unit itself needs serious updating. As many reviewers have already noted, the noise from the guests above as they walked was excessive. It sounds like they need to do structural work. There is newer furniture in the dining and living room, but the rest of the unit needs to be updated.

Pretty good
Nicole W. from Excelsior, MN recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in June, 2018
This trip was our fourth stay at PI. We have also stayed at two other off-resort properties in the area. We love the location of #1313; it's steps from the pool/ocean and close to the playground and front entrance. What we didn't love was that we could hear our upstairs tenants' at all hours of the day and night. The first couple of nights were quiet as no one was staying upstairs, but the rest of our stay we were awakened several times during the night as we could hear every footstep/flush -none of which, BTW, were the tenants' faults. They were just going about their own stay; they weren't obnoxiously loud. It's just that the insulation between the two units was next to nothing. We didn't love the outdated kitchen and master bath. The cabinets and counters were very old. To their credit they were in decent shape. The kitchen knives were dangerously dull. The hairdryer was supposed to be wall-mounted, but it was just sitting in a drawer, so I would set the base on the bathroom counter while drying my hair. A plus was the newer furnishings in the dining room and living room. But the unpolished brass sconces on the dining room wall are outdoor fixtures. On the other hand great highlights of our stay included crafts and show by Red Beard, visits to Stump Pass, hiring a boat to take us to Cabbage Key, and our daily visits to Coconuts. We loved renting the golf cart and bikes. All worked great. Coconuts' staff were terrific. Debbie, the concierge, was kind, helpful. The front gate guys were fine, but not nearly as friendly and helpful as previous years. The front desk staff took care of our check-in/out, but failed to even ask how our unit was. We worry that Palm Island is losing its luster. We have never visited the same place more than twice until Palm Island Resort. We will return, but maybe not for awhile as we weren't as"wowed" as we have been in the past. Palm Island is a special place. We hope its owners continue to care for it.

Hello Nicole, Thank you so much for taking your time to write this review. I'm truly sorry you weren't as wowed this time. We have been doing lots of improvements such as new roofs, painting projects, with many more to come that I think will be a pleasant surprise to many.

Beach Villa #1313
Lori V. from Tampa, FL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 6 days in June, 2018
Great location and view but the villa is in desperate need of owners attention. Ceiling fan in master bedroom brokenExhaust fan in small bath brokenLegs in some dining chair loose or brokenKitchen without necessary items (hot pads, sharp knives, plastic food storage containers for leftovers), pots with matching lids, junk being stored in master closet (old egg crate bedding) so closet was not useable, sliding porch door lock broken, to name the major issues. Electric outlets for golf cart charging completely non-functional.

Palm Island is an amazing vacation spot. Quite, relaxing and beautiful. This villa was perfect for us. Four lifelong friends stayed here while attending a wedding celebration event and we couldn?t have been more pleased. In my opinion, this villa offers one of the best water views.

Unit 1313
A guest from Tampa, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2017
We chose Palm Island b/c of our past experiences here and we needed a short but relaxing get away with our kids- As always the staff was great especially wit helping us choose our location prior to coming- the unit itself was a perfect location and was updated and very nice. However, the noise the noise from the upstairs unit was almost unbearable at night- It was not that they were doing anything specifically loud but just basic movement up until about midnight was abnormally creaky and made it impossible to sleep in the Master-- It seems like it is an issue with the floor/ceiling itself- Sounds weird but if you are in this unit and the 2nd floor unit is being rented just be aware. Other than that - a perfect time!

A guest from Vero BEach, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2017
The Resort was beautiful and extremely well maintained. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. The villa location was GREAT! WE were on the lower level and had an odd sound from the building when people walked above. The 2nd bathroom shower did not work. Over all the villa needed updating. Location was great...resort was great...villa needed some attention. Still had a great time but will get top level next time and ask for an updated villa.

Great unit with a great location in the resort
A guest from Venice, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in April, 2017
I personally liked the location of this unit. Right next to the pool and also right on the beach. Woke up every morning and sat on the porch with a cup of coffee. We sleep with fans and would have liked the master bedroom fan to be less noisy, but that is minor. The tenant upstairs was limited in their footsteps, but it could be overbearing if there was a large group up there. Floor joists are quite noisy as well. Overall, the place was clean, stocked with necessities, and worked well for our family. The resort was awesome.

PALM ISLAND RESORT MARCH 2017
A guest from Safety Harbor, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in March, 2017
Beautiful beach location, our unit was too close to the pool. Would be ideal for a family with young children. For adults, it was noisy.The unit was clean, needs updating. TV in guest room was not hooked up to any services, fan in guest bath very loud. Major issue, no blind of any type on glass door to outside staircase. This was a concern for security and privacy. Again beautiful beach, very friendly staff, unit was clean, but could have been better for the price. Would have been nice to have even a teapot to boil water. Overall, great beach and friendly staff.

Private, peaceful, and beautiful - Perfect vacation spot
Susan W. from Evansville, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in January, 2017
I recently enjoyed a week at Palm Island Resort for my daughter's destination wedding. It was great to have family and friends there , but all of us in our separate villas. It was nice to have our privacy and yet be able to share times at the pool, clubhouse and restaurant ( Rum Bay ). The staff was very friendly and helpful. I loved the fact that cars are not allowed in the resort and that pets are allowed in some of the villas. It was a perfect place for her wedding, but we also look forward to returning for future vacations.

Even a small pub type would b good. Rum Bay was very good but it would have been nice 2 have another option without leaving the island. We would definitely like 2 come back!

Annual Extended Family Vacation at Palm Island
Maria P. from Miami, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015
Our family loves Palm Island and this is our 3rd consecutive extended family vacation there. This year we were slightly disappointed with the villa we rented. Although we were told the unit had been recently renovated with new living room and dining furniture and tile floors the rest of the unit is in need of renovation. Some of the improvements are not costly. For example, the bedspread, shams and bed skirt are old in both rooms. The hallway bathroom did not have a shower curtain only the liner. The formica on some of the kitchen cabinets is peeling. The bathrooms are very plain with absolutely no decor. My sister-in-law, Ana Prats-Villa rented a similar unit, #1211, paid the exact same rental amount for the week and her unit was exceeding superior. In fact, when we rented the units

A guest from Morrisville, NC recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015
If you really want to get away from it all, this is the place to be! You will have the beach to yourself. The island is very quiet and full of nature. Fishing is great off the north end of the island right off the shore. We caught a lot of huge snook every night! Accommodations are fine, not up scale but fine. The people are super friendly. They gym is fine. The restaurant is also fine.

Never rent this unit!
Susan D. from Amherst, NH does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in February, 2015
This unit is in an older building. It is on the first floor. There is no insulation between the floors. We lost 3 nights of sleep listening to the people upstairs go to and from the bathroom many times a night. Even during the day, you could hear them wherever they went in the condo. It sounded like metal creaking...close to fingernails on a chalkboard. I called the front desk and asked if others had ever complained about this, and they said yes, plenty of people had complained, but there was nothing to be done about it. They suggested renting next time in the newer part of the resort or staying on the 2nd floor. They offered us nothing for losing 3 nights of sleep. I could list a few other minor not so good things about this condo, but they pale in comparison to losing sleep every night listening to the people above us going to and from the loo. We could even hear them every time they opened the closet doors in the master. Under other circumstances, we might have loved this resort, but NO SLEEP is torture, especially when you are paying over $300 a thanks, we won't be back.

Our Favorite Place to Stay
Reviewed by: Colleen J. recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in October, 2014
This was my 4th stay at Palm Island and I love it every time! The 2 bedroom villa was beautiful, clean, and had all the amenities I could want. The staff is attentive and helpful. The on-staff naturalist Kris is fabulous and the kayak tour was enjoyable, informative, and full of wildlife. Lunch on the deck at Rum Bay Restaurant was delicious. A little bit of construction was going on in an adjacent villa, but I totally understand the need to do this in order to keep the property so beautifully maintained. Even the construction crew was pleasant and apologized if they were disturbing us in any way.

Need to upgrade your standard units
Mark S. from Eden Pradrie, MN does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in January, 2014
We have stayed at Palm Island many times. We love the location on the beach and the safe, secluded feel. We were booked in a deluxe but when I arrived I discovered it was not beachfront, which was my request when booking. We were traded to a beachfront condo which was at the standard rate. It was not acceptable for the price point. No decor, very old beat up furniture, poor lighting, poor bed and bedding. I think the basic standard units should be updated enough that their quality is similar to a basic hotel chain. We would not stay in a standard unit again, or recommend it. The resort itself is our favorite Florida destination but it needs updating. Thank you!

Under construction
Robert J. from Littleton, MA recommends this property.
Stayed for 1 days in December, 2013
The unit we had booked for 2 nights was under construction when we arrived at 10:30pm. We had to wait a half hour for another unit to be found and then it was musty and not aired out for use, neither did it have the bed configuration we requested. We were offered the next morning an upgrade but still without the requested bed configuration (we were 2 couples.) We declined the upgrade as it meant moving and not to the right configuration.

Our vacation was great. Upon reflection with our two high school girls, they proclaimed "this was on of our best vactions ever".A few suggestions: 1) your bicycle fleet is a joke. Please upgrade and take better care of the new stock; 2) The Rum Bay resturant quality was poor. The food inconsistant to poor, the service lacking and it os loud.

PI is a beloved get-away for Chicago area family
A guest from EVANSTON, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in February, 2012
My family has been going to PI for 18 years, since my first son was born. It is a rare place where you can totally relax, hang out on pristine uncrowed white sand beaches and find plenty to do for adults and my kids (now 8, 16 and 19) Villas continue to be well-maintained and comfortable. It's so great that my college son flew cross-country from CAL to be able to spend a few days there. This past time we experienced a medical emergency (ashma attack without inhaler with us)on a Sunday night and PI/ferry captain were very helpful and professional, in facilitating our getting to the ER on the mainland and back at 1:30 am. (Yes, all ended well).

I HAVE BEEN COMING TO PALM iSLAND FOR 25 YEARS. I RENTED THREE UNITS FOR THIS TRIP. THIS TIME, THE COUCH STUNK SO BAD IN MY ROOM I ASKED TO REPLACE IT, AND NO ONE DID. I HAD TO OUT A BEDSPREAD ON IT TO EVEN SIT ON IT. THE UNIT - 1313 WAS RUN DOWN AND DIRTY. I EXPECTED A BETTER UNIT AND MORE RESPONSIVE HOUSEKEEPING.

Unit 1313
DONNA M. from CAPE CORAL, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2011
Just a couple of things with this unit. It needs more utensils like a spatula and tongs for the grill. Also the disposal sounds like it's not working well and the fridge didn't get very cold, and the dryer was not great. This unit just needs some updating.

Location, Location, Location!!
A guest from TAMPA, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2010
We have stayed at Palm Island Resort every year for the last 10 years. We truly enjoy being on a barrier island away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Red Beard the Pirate is super! My 13 year old daughter has been hanging out with Red Beard since she was 3! I gave a low rating on the condition of our unit even though we pick the same unit every year. The reason we pick our unit is because it is pet friendly and we feel it is in the best location at the resort. With that being said, we put up with a room that hasn't been renovated in years. There is no VCR or DVD player in the place. We pray each year the old TVs will work. The appliances have seen better days. The bathroooms are out of date. We know other units at the resort have been recently remodeled and have much better ammenities. Our family chooses location over room amenities every time so we end up requesting the same unit each year. Perhaps one year the owner of our favorite unit will surprise us with a major overhaul? That is our wish for Santa!! :)

We've been coming to Palm Island with our family for 26 years--we were among the first guests when the resort opened in 1984. We lived in Orlando for most of that time; but even when we moved from Florida to Ohio and then Georgia, Palm Island was our place for physical and spiritual renewal. Our boys started coming when they were 7 and 10, respectively; it is still their favorite place in the world to go--and they've both traveled the world. Now they bring their boys who are 6 and 4; and they love it as much as their dads did and do. Thanks for being a great sanctuary for our family!

As always, very friendly staff and cleanliness of the unit was impeccable. Reason I gave a 2 star condition of unit was the mildew/musty smell. In fact, when we got home, our clothes & suitcases smelled of it. Kitchen is showing wear and tear on the countertops.

Third Straight Year at Palm Island Resort
CHRIS M. from TAMPA, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2009
Our family had three condos and all were in good shape. The pool and the grills were clean, and the awning at the pool was fantastic.Two minor areas for improvement: the chaise lounges at the beach had a high incidence of already-broken straps, and old rusty non-working ceiling fans should be replaced.

GREAT PLACE!!!

Stayed for 7 days in July, 2009
Have been coming here for 20+ years and have never had a bad stay. Glad to see they have allowed pets in some units for us baby boomers with four legged 'kids'. Would like to see a dog beach...perhaps the northeast tip of the island since boaters already use it as one.

Property Manager Response:
Dear Ms. Wolf, Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to our surey.We do work directly with our County and Federal Wildlife agency and because of our nesting areas, we cannot add a dog beach. We try to keep all animals off the beaches to protect the native species from being distrubed. I love dogs and have two of my own, but from what we are told, that is not possible. We look forward to your next visit. DJ Cutler, Director of Hospitality Operations

Relaxing with kids
A guest from ST LOUIS, MO recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2009
We love Palm Island. It is very relaxing and perfect for our family. We have 4 children under the age of 8 and it works great for us. The children can run around and it is a very safe enviorment. My only negative comment is that some of the units could use a little updating with amenities, furniture and bedding. The are starting to look weathered.

We had a great week at the island. Our bathroom was not that clean. the rugs had not been changed, under the toilet there was urine (we sprayed with lysol) I do not think the bathroom had been mopped. Everything else was great. You have wonderful employees in the reception office. They are the best. We will definitely be back next year.

Great Island Getaway!
JANICE B. from TAMPA, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in June, 2008
We love our yearly vacations at Palm Island Resort. The grounds are very well maintained. We stay in a certain unit each year. We choose the unit for its location. The inside furniture and appliances are not new by any means, but we overlook that flaw because of the other amenities the unit offers; close to the pool, close to the beach, etc. If you ask my daughter, the best part of Palm Island Resort is Red Beard, the Pirate. If you don't know about Red Beard and you have children, you should book a stay at Palm Island Resort now. Words cannot describe the fun experience Red Beard brings!! Forgot to say... you are car ferried to the Island. Once you are there, a trip to the mainland seems to be a big deal. Our advice, bring everything you need on your first trip over (I mean everything including food, medecine, sun lotion, kitchen sink (lol), etc... Then just enjoy the experience.

Overall we love Palm Island. The grounds looked beautiful and manicured. It is unfortunate that I asked for the unit next to the pool. We stayed in that unit about 10 years ago and not much has changed. I never imagined that my view would include construction. We will be returning this summer and hopefully we will have a more beautiful view from our unit.
