But after several phone calls, signing up for email alerts, etc.. Nobody has every gotten back to me.. And that’s OK. Because, while the magazine ad in the American Airline magazine I saw was wonderful and compelling, clearly nobody works there. And if they do, they have so many visitors that they don’t need another one. I travel a lot. I spend money. My wife and I are always looking for something like this. But if you don’t want me, I don’t want you. Good luck. You’re going to need it
We drove by Little Palm on 10-1-18 and it is still closed - it's not looking good- nobody is working on the place. There is still a lot of damage in the middle keys a year after the hurricane. lots of places still have those blue tarps on their roofs and lots of buildings are not occupied.
I don't even know where to start with how awesome I think Little Palm is..... From the minute we stepped off the airplane in Key West and picked up from our Little Palm driver to every minute on this secluded slice of heaven was perfect. I don't have one single "con" about this place - ok well maybe one, the mosquitoes and "no see ums" can be a tad pesky when there isn't a breeze at night but it would never stop me from going back (just bring bug spray). Our bungalow was amazing, the food was delicious, the service was probably the best I've ever experienced, the quiet was just what I needed, the key deer was adorable (and friendly) and the people we met were memorable. Our visit was in August 2016, it was HOT, very hot but I loved every single minute my husband and I were there for our anniversary and my birthday (which just happen to be a day apart). On our special days our dinner menus were personalized which was impressive and added just that extra special touch that meant the world to me. Our snorkeling adventure was by far the best I've been on in years and we traveled a lot to the Caribbean but never seen the amount of color I saw in the keys. My heart sank and broke when the hurricane of 2017 destroyed the island but was happy to hear that they are rebuilding and will re-open in 2019. I CANNOT WAIT TO RETURN! And I will return. Be prepared that this type of adventure and relaxation is pricey but worth every single penny. I left a piece of my heart on Little Palm and will forever be in love with this island.
Obviously we didn’t stay at Little Palm this month as it is still closed while being renovated after being hit by Hurricane Irma. But this review is long overdue. We had the pleasure of staying here three times in the 18 months before the storm. Every time was magical. Yes it’s pricey but worth it because of the peace and quiet and personal service. When we go somewhere it’s often just to get away from it all and do nothing. This is the perfect place for that. And of course activities abound if you’re looking for a different course to take. The food is wonderful. The staff is incredible. Thank you for introducing us to the Gumby Slumber! Very romantic and truly unforgettable. Our best to all the staff we met on our visits. Hope all is well.
They cater too your every needs and you pay for it. This is where they filmed PT 109, Went here for a wedding and the Key Deer came up to the dinner table. This place is beautiful sitting in the middle of clean,blue water. The water taxi u take from the Overseas Highway is an amazing boat ride on a classic motor launch. A great time I will never forget.
We dreamed and planned for this celebration vacation for months. Unfortunately, it was the opposite. At arrival, we were told that we had received upgraded accommodates. I don't think so. As a matter of fact, this was the exact location that another review complained about.. I requested a particular room area (per a Tripadvisor warning), but was told that was not an option. The worse of the trip was that I was eaten by Noseeums and had an allergic reaction. I was miserable for weeks, covered in red itchy whelps. Nothing prevents them and nothing gives you relieve. No one stayed out to eat on the beach in the evenings due to these biting sandflies. The food was okay but not fantastic. However, the hospitality is awesome and the resort is beautiful. Sadly, no more Keys for me!
We had their top Grand Suite for 4 days. The Key deer were incredible. The suite was like a tree house. Fantastic and relaxing. Unfortunately I think hurricane Irma pretty much destroyed the property. I hope they can bring it back. Very special place. Only accessible by boat.
I took my husband for his retirement dinner prior to Irma, did not realize their fountain is infected with johns disease. This is a bacteria harmful to humans and that kills wildlife. Specifically the endangered tiny key deer that guests love to interact with. Had I known this dangerous bacteria had not been cleared up despite many complaints. This is very sad and a danger to guests. Noble house clean up your act.
This amazing resort exceeded all of my expectations! The staff was absolutely incredible, the majority with long employment tenures, and worked to ensure our vacation met all our needs. Renda, our concierge, was so delightful. She immediately made us feel at home as she oriented us to the Island and to the service offered. The spa services were fabulous - I'd recommend the couples services - and the therapists were very good. We explored the mangroves in kayaks and took one of the resort's boats to picnic island. So fun! I'd also recommend the private sunset cruise. Wishing everyone well after Hurricane Irma.
Booked for our anniversary as a true romantic "unplugged" getaway. Staff and attention from them is extraordinary. From their driver we booked from Key West airport to the check-in receptionist (and cocktails) to the boat captain and finally ambassador dockside. Got a romance bungalow, but as others have noted, there is an adjoining space (separated by too the walls, thank you) so its not "private". We were VERY surprised by an "added $100/day resort fee" that, when inflated by tax after tax on top of tax came to $1,000 per night! Dining was a conundrum. We realized that, across a number of lunch and dinners, the kitchen's use of salt was VERY excessive. You'd think that lunch French fries in a basket could not have too much salt.....not true! The kicker was my wife's dinner app was a fois gras torch that was SO loaded with salt as to be inedible!. And I like salt! Unfortunately, bringing it to the attention of the busser who promised to tell our server resulted in.......nothing. As I write this, I fear the entire resort may be destroyed by hurricane Irma in the next few days and that would be tragic. We thought long and hard after leaving and concluded we probably would not return for the same experience.
