Palm Island Resort is on a private island one hour north of Fort Meyers Florida . This is a great vacation for those who want to walk a 2 mile sugary beach and go beach combing, kayaking, paddle boarding or fishing. This island can only be accessed by a 5-10 minute ferry ride or water taxi so the beaches are...

We loved our trip to Palm Island Resort. The condo was beautiful and view from the back porch was amazing. It was great to be in walking distant to the beach and the pool. There were grills available so we were able to grill out. I hope to go back soon.

If peace and quiet, sun and crowdless beaches is your thing, this is your place. Had a nice pick-up tennis game, thanks to the pro. Nice courts and pools. No cars on the resort, you have to get around by golf cart. A very relaxing week.

Very nice, secluded resort on Palm Island. You will need to ask for beach front as they also have waterfront which is on the inner waterway. It is very secluded with one restaurant called Rum Bay on Palm Island. You also can take a water taxi to the mainland to Levelrock's. The resort has tennis, kayaks, yoga and many other...

Our family has been vacationing at Palm Island for 12+ years. You arrive to the island by barge....which minimizes people on the beautiful beaches. A short drive to the Resort, you then park your car and enter the resort by golf cart. No cars allowed! I say any day you can drive a golf cart is a good day! It...

This is my 6th year coming to Palm Island and never fails to delight. Our 2BR villa was lovely and well-stocked for all our needs. I love the large screened porches which allow you to eat outdoors and enjoy the view. Shelling here is excellent and kayaking with the resort's naturalist Kris never disappoints. This trip it was sand bars...

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.

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...

Kate, Please call us directly for any specific reservation information. The resort has two types of agreements with TAN and the specifics are a bit different. We do not receive your information until about 10 days before your arrival from TAN. We offer many activities and the resort offers some very nice amenities to our guests! See you then.

Christine, The resort does have both bikes and kayaks for rent. as well. Please keep in mind our parking area does not have space for a trailer, nor does the car ferry allow trailers to be pulled as part of your resort passage. If you have more specific questions or need more information give our guest services department or concierge a call please.

Thank you for your interest in Palm Island Resort. We look forward to sharing our island with you, soon!

Enjoying the perks of being on an island sometimes requires a bit of extra planning, but we are happy to assist with that. Guests not looking to rent a car during their stay often use a car service provided by our Concierge. The car services that our Concierge refers will bring you on the car ferry and right to the bellstand where you will be greeted by a bellman and directed to reception for check-in. Once you have checked in, a bellman will unload your luggage and groceries onto his golf cart. He will transport you to your villa and assist with bringing those items in to your villa as well.

For a full list of car services and additional options, please contact Debbie in Concierge at (941) 697-4800. She will provide you with contact information for various car services, and a nice feature of some of the companies is they also offer "day trips". This is a great option for those visiting who do not have a vehicle but are still interested in exploring everything our local area has to offer.

If any other questions about our resort should arise during your vacation planning, please do not hesitate to contact one of our reservationists for further assistance at (941) 697-4800.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Warmest Regards,

Vanessa Diaz
