Little Palm Island Resort-Spa
Looking for peace and quiet like never before? Located on a private five-acre island in the Florida Keys, this hide-away is accessible by boat only. This elegantly rustic resort offers secluded, thatched-roof accommodations surrounded by tropical foliage. Handsomely decorated rooms feature walled showers that open to the sky and in-room Jacuzzis. Amenities include a highly rated restaurant, an outdoor pool with a waterfall and pool bar, water sports, jogging trails, the Spa Terre and a boutique. Rates are seasonal and are higher on weekends. In-room massage, dry cleaning and newspaper delivery services. Children under age 16 not permitted at the facility.
Still a good place to consider! Been there many times over the past 12 years, but have noticed they are cutting back on the little unique extras that used to make this resort excellent. It is sad that the economy has taken its toll on this piece of paradise and what it offers.
we just returned from little palm island. we can't wait to go back. if you are looking for a super relaxing quiet get away with your significant other this is where you want to go. it is expensive but you really do get what you pay for, excellent service, intimate surroundings and peace from the usual hustle and bustle of life. the wildlife is amazing, wish i would have brought my camera.
My wife and I visited on our honeymoon in November 1989, so I can't comment on the current state of the facilities or food (they were wonderful when we went). We had a wonderful, romatic time.
I instead wanted to talk about some of the comments about the island in other reviews. The island is little and you can walk around it in 5 minutes, and you probably won't run into anyone else. Like everywhere on the Gulf side, there isn't any surf. If there was, the island would have washed away years ago. There are sand flats off one end of the island so you can walk far out and the water will still be very shallow. On the other end, it is mangroves and looks out to a nearby mangrove island. On this end, I loved watching the fish in the water and the birds on the neighboring island.
Little Palm is a fabulous place to escape the rest of the world. If you want to watch TV, or keep up with current events, or engage in people-watching, or practice your surfing skills, just don't go there. That's not what LPI offers. If you want the quiet and solitude, and you love the person you are going with, you will have a wonderful time in a beautiful location.
Ever since we went, I am still looking for netting to put over our bedroom's ceiling fan so that it waves gently over the bed. I can't imagine something so simple giving such a romantic effect.
My husband an I've traveled all over the world and stayed at some of the finest hotels. That being said, none compared to our experience to Little Palm Island! It was FABULOUS - literally a 10/10!! The beaches, spa, food & beverage, watersports and customer service was outstanding! Would highly recommend LPI to everyone .....
From the moment we arrived until the moments we left - THE BEST vacation experience ever!
We will be back again and again and again!!

We went there for one week. After 4 years of no vacation, this place recharged our batteries. Enjoying peace and quite, nature, just relaxing, doing nothing if you don't want to. Going with a waterplane to another island that's your own for a couple of hours, just fantastic. Great food, although we were happy to eat a regular burger when we got home.
Really a place where you can forget the rest of the world. We had a baby at home and I thought I would have a hard time leaving him with grandma. All my worries were gone in a flash once we started to relax.
I have been twice.... and the bottom line is... if you are there with someone you are into.... and having a great time with them.. the place is amazing... if you are just going to go... and your relationship is not the type where you can focus just on each other.. go somewhere else...I loved it... once.. not so good the other time.... for obvious reasons
Heading back for our third visit to Little Palm. The place is great, no children under 16 allowed, no public cell phone use, 2.4 employees per guest. It doesn't get any better than this.
Bring a good book, and relax!
My wife and I spent 4 days, 3 nights there and it was absoultely amazing. The peace and quiet you get is perfect for unwinding and relaxing. The staff is wonderful, they do anything you need but also give you all the privacy you want. The wildlife is amazing and the views are breathtaking. The resort might be expensive but it is well worth the money for everything the island offers. If you want a vacation with lots of stuff, don't go here, if you want a vacation to do nothing and enjoy every second this resort is perfect. No tv, no phone, no distractions just island life at its best. Those people that complain about cost, it is expensive but you know that going in, everything is expensive but if you want the most romantic place it will cost a little more. We thought the price was more than reasonable for having your own private island that seemed like you are the only people on it. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to rekindle that romance between you and your significant other. Best resort by far!!!
I stayed 3 nights with my wife. We could not wait for the trip to be over. The bungalows are very dark inside, have absurdly poor lighting, dated bathroom facilities, and no view whatsoever. You have to stand on your deck and strain to see the water. Not offering televisions in the rooms at least upon request is silly as many people are used to relaxing while watching programs or movies. The breakfast's pancakes seemed like nuked frozen ones. Breakfast and lunch were overpriced and terrible. There are no other dining options. Lunch was terrible with some portions being small and others randomly were oversized like the hotdog which was served burned. There is a tiny beach where you are elbow to elbow with people. The workout room is cluttered and small. There is nothing to do when there is a small craft advisory as there is much of the winter which precludes water excursions. That means unless you drive to key west (which is charming for an hour or so), you either have to lay out like a seal or read. These are activities that most people can only do a few hours a day. The only memorable experience were the dinners and the fire-pits. Service is very slow but as there is nothing else to do anyway, at least it kills the night. This place needs to be spruced up, made more airy, and fixed. Having stayed in St. Barths and other expensive tropical destinations, this place does not even compare. This place has obvioulsy been getting by its name and exclusivity but it does not have the goods. Your $1,000 or more a night is best spent elsewhere.
