“Return Stay, great vacation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

I had stayed here a while ago, and we had a great time. When we called to make a new reservation, we were told that the marina view units had been "rebranded" as the Island Palm Marina Villas. We came over to fish, and it was great to have a boat pick us up at the dock outside our doors each morning!

We had stayed previously in both the marina units and the main horseshoe, and the buildings and units are alike all around. The accommodation is a well equipped, full apartment. The marina complex is just across a lane from the main lobby, and the units have water views.

The resort is not a hotel in the normal sense. There is a nice exercise room (and a massage room), the beach is beautiful, there are all kinds of family activities, but this is not a hotel type resort - things wind down by midnight (no late nite), no room service (you have a kitchen!), but they do have a great concierge/reservation desk that was very helpful. The staff is very nice, but they may do things at a slower pace than most people are used to, so relax!

We used the on site sundries store, and we used the shuttle to Port Lucaya several times, and there is a grocery store over there. The on site restaurants are good, and there are some little kiosks on the beach that are good.

If you want late night and extensive pampering, then this property may not be what you want. For a family who wants a good value and a nice "home away from home", this is just the place!

Room Tip: There are no elevators, so if you have any trouble with stairs request a ground floor unit. Take som...

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2013

Had a 1/1 furnished condo at the Island Palm Marina Villas, which is what appears to be a former apartment complex across the street from the 'mother' property, Island Seas Resort (none of the taxi drivers at the airport know of 'Island Palm Marina', so be sure to tell them Island Seas). While the staff are very friendly and helpful and the beaches quiet and gorgeous, the rooms offer very poor comfort. The bed was old and worn, and there was a big piece of plywood between the mattress and box spring (really?!!) The pillows felt and looked like a big bag of popcorn, and the AC units in the windows are very loud. The one in the bedroom was less than 2 feet from the bed. The power went out several times during the night, setting off the smoke alarm and the clock on the stove, both of which are quite startling to awake to when you don't know what the alarm is for. Thanksgiving Day, while attempting to prepare the holiday meal, the power went off at least a dozen times. The main resort, Island Seas, has generators on the property, but not so at Island Palm. Verrrrry frustrating to try and make and enjoy a meal with this going on, especially in the dark and without flashlights or a means to light candles. But - again, the staff are wonderful, the beach is gorgeous, and the scuba diving is superb! I hope they manage to upgrade this property; I would return if so improved.
