Absolutely breathtaking water, views, beaches and shells. The resort has tennis, pools, paddle boards, boat rentals and a fun restaurant with an amazing burger. The green tomatoes with balsamic are also delicious.

We apologize for the inexcusable condition the villa was found in. It is embarrassing to our entire operation. Several departments are working together to make this better. The resort on island is staffed with an on call manager overnight, but the mainland still presents some challenges. We are seeking solutions and appreciate your concerns and comments.

This was our third annual trip to Palm Island Reort. We have made this our go to destination for our family and we really do love it there, but the last two years our condos both left quite a bit to be desired. This year, our condo was in quite a bit of disrepair, despite booking a Superior beach villa.... More

We stayed at this resort for a school reunion. Our two bedroom condo, while unexceptional, was a great value. It was clean, had a washer/dryer, and full kitchen. I believe all the rentals are beach front, as was ours. The lack of cars on the resort was very nice and a golf cart rental a must ($50.00/day). Tennis courts in... More

Villas with great Gulf views and a place where relaxing in the sun and having fun is supreme! Outstanding resort amenities and no crowds to deal with! From the moment you take the short ferry ride you feel miles away from it all! Remember to bring your beach gear and towels!

Our aunt and uncle on my wife's side have a house here. It's the best place to check out from life, wear swim trunks and flops all day and gym shorts and a t-shirt at night. The beach is gorgeous and never crowded, and the staff is amazing! I encourage everyone to escape from reality here!

The room was very good. Housekeeping could have been better about exchanging towels daily and emptying trash. Otherwise, the pool, staff, gym, and private beach, were all very good. private island, Big Hickory, contains the best seashells in FL, period.

We went to visit some friends and stayed with them at the condo. What a wonderful time we had a beautiful view of the beach. Had dinner at the restaurant right on the island. Such a great mini vacation.

After we took the ferry across, we stayed in a beach "villa" which houses multiple condos. Each set of villas has their own pool and looks out onto the beach. Everything was clean, comfortable, and well appointed. The screened porch was great for sitting out in the evening listening to the ocean and was the only place in our room... More
