Heaven on Earth
The arrival and departure experiences are unparalleled. Once we were checked in, we were brought to Little Palm Island in a Kennedy era, period correct, wooden Chris Craft named after former President Truman. How cool. The island has presidential pedigree which adds to its mystique. Once on the island, we were greeted by Kat who gave us a thorough introduction to the resort’s amenities, history and lay out. Once in the suite we were greatly impressed once more by the cleanliness, space, décor and attention to detail. We enjoyed meals through room service and all the other outlets throughout the resort and found the food quality and service to exceed our expectations. The menus are changed daily so you will not get bored if you stay for a while. The Spa is also very serene and special. Although we did not have any treatments throughout our stay, we were able to tour some of the uniquely appointed treatment rooms. You will see a lot of birds and have many different things to do in and around the island. There are Boston Whalers boats available for guest use on a first come, first serve basis to explore the area’s sand bars and more. They will also arrange diving and fishing trips for you if that is your thing. Ground transportation is available from area airports to and from the resort. The boutique offered a nice variety of resort wear, gifts, and even had books, toys and stuffed animals for the kids back home. I thought that was a great touch. You can also arrive by sea plane and there is docking available if you rather stay in your yacht. The drive down from Palm Beach County was not bad at all. In just about three hours, with a couple of stops for lunch and exploration, we were pulling in to the reception center. Keep in mind that it may be a bit longer during holidays or weekends. The best tip would be to take the time and let the team educate you and all that is available in the island as far as amenities, and things to do in the area. I definitely feel that the experience and level of service justify the price.
Authentic and genuine hospitality
Exceeded expectations in every way. From the genuine welcome to the incredible authentic and local decor, our stay was perfect. The added amenities of the boats you can take out was a plus. The grounds are pristine and didn't miss a thing!
We visited Little Palm the first week of Oct. this year. Overall we could not have had a better trip. One of the items that stood out was the staffs attitude and care they have for their job. Most of the staff appears to be local. If you are interested they are more than willing to share the history of not only Little Palm but of the entire area. The folks value their jobs and it shows. In these days getting staff is difficult...Getting "good staff" is extremly difficult. And getting the staff that Little Palm has is almost impossible. The food was amazing...I read some reviews stating the food lacked flavor. I did not find that at all. I enjoy seafood (which was outstanding in variety and type offered during our stay) but I love a good steak. Coming from Texas I am admittingly a "steak snob". I typically do not order steak off the menu unless it is a specialty for them. I ordered a NY strip for dinner one evening....It was one the best I have had in a very long time! Our suite had a private beach area with firepits and various seating options. Very nice to sit and enjoy after dinner. A plus is the fire pits come on and go off automatically. No hassle! I find it almost impossible to complain about anything on our trip. However, to make sure I dont sound like an ad for Little Palm....My only complaint would be the pillows. I realize everyone has a different liking. I prefer a pillow that is fairly firm. The pillows were fairly soft and Im sure most loved them. I simply found them too soft. Im sure I could have called the staff and they would have found one to my liking immediately. However, at the end of the day its a pillow. The staff works extremely hard all day long. I didnt feel a pillow had any merit to complain about! LOL
My wife and I went here for our 20th anniversary. We wanted something special, and Little Palm delivered. It was an outstanding trip. Outstanding facilities. Outstanding staff. Highly recommend! We will come again and will send our friends.
A slice of paradise for a special occasion.
Pricey, but worth it. The facility is lovely, and service was exceptional. For us, it was an ideal location for a long weekend getaway to celebrate a special anniversary. Pre-arrival communications were extremely helpful. Check in and departure processes were smooth with nice personal touches. All of the staff seemed well trained in delivering quality service. And the restaurant staff was especially attentive during our private dining, making it a very memorable occasion.
