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. The staff came quickly to fix several things, but there was still quite a bit that needed fixed. We were excited to bring my in-laws with us this year, but were a bit embarrassed when we hyped it up to be such a nice place and then for the condo to just be below average.

We are honestly happy to never leave the island the whole week. One caveat is to make sure you can still make your flight if it leaves early on a morning as the ferry does not begin until 6:40. We had to leave the night before and find a hotel close to the airport so we could make our flight.

The staff is always friendly, especially the front gate porters.

Each morning maintenance crews are out early picking up palm fronds and debris that have blown down. The grounds are just perfect and we love that there are no cars, just golf carts. So very quaint.

Just hoping next year we find a nice clean condo that the pictures accurately depict.

Room Tip: Stay away from 1724 until they get some repairs and upgrades made.

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 good condition. There is no WiFi provided in the units and service in a few common areas very spotty.
Cape Haze beaches are an estuary so the water is not crystal clear. However, the abundant wildlife compensates for this. Our late September stay was also exceedingly hot so be aware of typical weather conditions for the area.

Room Tip: 2 bedroom 3513 had nice furniture and a ginormous TV

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.
