Why did we wait so long???

Curlys99 (Alton, United Kingdom) on May 06, 2024

This was definitely worth the wait- it’s been on my list for a few years and oh yes, it exceeded expectations! A lovely relaxed unpretentious resort - enough options and space for you to be totally romantic and on your own or with activities to join in and mingle with guests. Be it crab racing, Katie’s rum tasting or Caribbean dance buffet night. You can dress up or be less formal and still feel at ease. We Spent hours on the most amazing beach watching water sports guys teaching guests on efoils ( wish I’d been brave enough) or watching some beautiful yachts go by. Max in the yoga/gym/ water aerobics was outstanding- either teaching a class of 1 or 10! Gym very good too. Our Palm view room was a great size and we still got an ocean view. No 33. Undecided if it’s worth getting beachfront. A real laugh provided by our cleaner Margaret with her towel arrangements. To cute! Food was good all week and lobster at the Caribbean buffet outstanding!! Lunch taken under cute palm umbrellas with wine that doesn’t stop. No need to reserve beds, there are loads! Cooler by the pool with the refreshing wind, but beach was the heaven views for us. Two spa treatments in the relaxing spa. Bicycles to pick up when ever you want to explore the island( bit cooler with breeze than walking. Different spurs of the island to climb so we always had something to do. Great trip to Tobago cays to see Jack Sparrow Island and swim with turtles . Couldn’t better the Beach Movie night with “Pirates of the Caribbean” sipping cocktails. Lots of guests have been back year after year. I can see why. Well done Katie and team, it takes great effort to achieve that. Hopefully we will too. Highly recommend.

Still the best place we've ever been to!

Xanda V (Bampton, United Kingdom) on May 03, 2024

This was our third visit and was probably the best so far. Katie and the staff are brilliant, so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in a Palm view rooms which is really spacious and we could see the sea although we didn't expect to (there is great "towelography too!). The addition of wi-fi in the rooms, bar and restaurants since our last trip was useful (but you can still just switch your phone off!) Food ridiculously plentiful and excellent as were the cocktails and wines. We did very little but there are new walks around the island and of course various trips available

Idyllic and Unique Palm Island

Astrid H on Apr 30, 2024

Katie, the Resort Manager, was absolutely AMAZING from the moment we stepped onto Palm Island’s small docking platform until we sadly had to say ‘Goodbye’ before heading back to hectic London life. Everything about our 12 days of pure relaxation on Palm Island was perfect and we’ll definitely return as soon as we possibly can. On arrival we were informed about a few of the activities available, but having just arrived from London, we were really seeking some Peace and Tranquillity, and were then delighted to hear that we could also choose to do absolutely nothing at all! We had a delightful Beachfront room. It was perfect - just a few fine white sandy steps to the crystal-clear sea. Every day we’d walk/climb around the unspoilt natural island, absorbing all its varied and beautiful nature and wildlife. We did get involved in some of the more gentle organised activities - Pilates with Max, pampering in the Spa; yet we also thoroughly enjoyed Katie’s pre-dinner Rum-tasting/dancing evenings for those who wanted to get involved. And for exciting, high-octane, action-packed activity, our long-overdue Game Fishing trip with Grenadines Fishing, organised by Katie’s exceptional team, ticked all the boxes, a bonus being that we caught, brought back and ate a Barracuda as well as some other fair-sized very edible fish! Katie’s charming manner, her caring, happy, can-do spirit and contagious energy flows through all Palm Island’s ‘Family’ team. You all contribute to Palm Island's unique and idyllic experience and we’ll be back to see you again very soon. Please save our room!

Perfect Vacation

661carrien (New Stanton, Pennsylvania) on Apr 28, 2024

We travel at least twice a year to the Caribbean. Palm Island has been our best experience to date. It is absolutely breathtaking. There is no towel game whatsoever. Every morning, we ate breakfast, ride the bikes, and hiked one of the trails before heading to the beach where we had our choice of palapa. Every staff member was so personable- Katie, Naia, Glenford, Oliver, John, Nick, Shaquille, just to name a few. The beach and color of the water were spectacular. The food was great. We were at Galley Bay, also an Elite property last year, and it was pretty perfect, but the beauty and experience of Palm Island gives it the edge, in my opinion. The whole experience, starting with the plane ride in was outstanding.
