Palm Island Resort and Spa is the closest thing to French Polynesia in the Caribbean. An hour prop flight from Barbados anda short boat ride allows for 1/3 the travel time for the central US.

My wife and I spent our 20th wedding anniversary on Palm island the week before Christmas 2018. The resort was perfect... good food, great company, and the staff goes way beyond the call of duty, learning each guests name for the next encounter. The trips...More
We spent 5 nights on Palm Island Resort. We were in room 7, which was the closest room to the Royal Palm Restaurant (the main dining room). This was to accommodate my companion, who has trouble walking, especially long distances.
The room was large, although...More
We stayed at Palm Island in Mid October for 8 nights. We were two couples ranging in age from 44-51. The travel to Palm Island is long but well worth it upon arrival. We connected through Barbados and a rep was waiting to whisk us...More
This was our 8th visit to this beautiful and friendly island and certainly won’t be our last. The excitement rises as you land on Union Island then are transferred to the quay where the Palm Island launch awaits you. The whole process is seemless. We...More

Just an additional thought as I forgot to mention it yesterday. If you do decide on an overnight stay in Barbados with a next day flight to Union Island, try to avoid flying in and out of Grantley Adams airport on a weekend. During high season, there are a lot of cruises passengers flying in and out of Barbados and the line ups to get through customs/immigration and security are AWFUL. I did this once and it took over an hour and a half to clear Immigration -- in fact there was a large scrum to negotiate just to enter the terminal building, and you couldn't even see the signs for Immigration and the beginning of the line up was hard to find. Coming home, the journey through security was horrible as well. Now when we go to Palm Island, we fly in on a Friday and out on a Monday -- so much more civilized! If you are flying in on a weekend and making a direct connection to Union Island, this is not as big an issue as Palm Island reps will divert you before you reach the main terminal and guide you through to the SVG check in and security which tends to move you along fairly quickly.

There are mosquitos and biting insects and maybe the numbers vary by time of year, but I think the real issue is your sensitivity level. I always get bitten and react (I also suffer from various allergies), but my husband has no problems at all. The resort provides insect repellent to use in your room and for personal use, although you may want to bring extra from home if you are very sensitive to bites. Speaking from experience, a few things that have helped me include: spraying the bug spray on myself in the morning, after each swim and before heading out in the evening for dinner, spraying the towels that I put on my lounge chair, not hanging out too long in the library or main lobby (I find the bugs more prevalent in those locations) and not making the mistake of staying on the beach too late in the afternoon (I paid dearly for this on our last trip). The biting insects seem to be more of an issue on the beach in late afternoon -- the timing will vary somewhat depending on the time of year -- so around 4 pm or so may be a good time to relocate to the pool or your own room/terrace. If you really react to bug bites, you may also want to bring an antihistamine with you and/or Afterbite. Benadryl makes a topical cream that has an antihistamine that I also find helpful in relieving the itch. Even though I am like a walking buffet to the local bugs, I'd return to Palm Island in a heart beat!
