Koetje, Todd5.0 Guest Rating- Stayed at this property between February 18, 2006 and February 25, 2006- Rating added March 12, 2006Comments:We have traveled quite extensively in the Caribbean, staying at high-end boutique resorts, and we have to say that Palm Island is the best place we've ever stayed. Palm Island was excellent in every category: wonderful staff and beach beach setting, great accommodations, great menu, good value, etc. You can do as much (sailing excursions, diving, snorkeling, fishing, hiking, tennis, golf) or as little (relaxing on the beach with cocktails) as you wish.
I can't say enough about the people of The Grenadines. You will never find more friendly, gracious, fun-loving people anywhere in the islands. Several members of the staff we befriended while there have een called us since our return to the states to "see how we're doing" and "just catch up." Over-the-top service. Beachfront Rooms are the way to go. If you're looking for the best and closest Beachfronts, request from #7 to #18. While they have a/c units in the rooms, they aren't that effective, as all rooms have louvered windows throughout. We never even thought about it, as there are constant tradewinds to keep things comfortable.
This is a one-of-a-kind place with one-of-a-kind people. A definite must for any avid island traveler.The quality of Hideaways' description of the property is: AccurateDoes this member recommend the property? Yes, Highly RecommendKudos for a staff member: I'm assuming this is Palm Island Staff Members
