We visited Palm Island Resort as an escape from cold temperatures at home. The resort was clean, our villa was spacious and comfortable and the staff was courteous and very helpful. The private beach at the resort is truly magnificent and the pools are well maintained. Palm Island Resort is a great get away vacation spot.

You are only allowed to eat at the restaurant. Don't even think about taking steps to the beach, you will be stopped and asked to return. Food is not cheap, but the water ride over is very nice! $6 round trip plus tip. This is something to try when snowbird season is over, but its probably only a one time...

This resort is on the beach but the water is about 300 yards away. It is beautiful there. The villas are on pilings for safety from flooding from hurricanes. Not a good place for seniors with knee problems. 30 steps to upper floor. There is no elevator. First floor is about 14 steps up. Although the grounds are beautiful and...

We were so happy we booked our mid-winter vacation here. Relaxing, beautiful views, friendly! We walked, kayaked and toured the island in a golf cart. If you are able bodied and want a little exercise, a golf cart is not at all needed except to check out the island one day. The resort is very well kept, and our unit...
