We came to Palm Island after being completely disgusted by the condition of our room at Baan Rom Mai and whilst it cost £295 for three nights (between Christmas and New Year) we were relieved to have found a little bunglow here. The interior was great, clean and the bathroom had marble tiles. the pool area was fantastic and besides a few noisy guests it was very peaceful. It is not a resort for backpackers as it may be above budget but really good compared to a lot of the resorts in Thailand.
Pros: on the beach, close to many beach restaurants, lovely pool area, clean and homely interiors, close to the shopping areas. Also close to the international hospital. Beautifule full moon and sun rise!
Cons: breakfast was included but very humble portions, people selling stuff on the beach can get a little too much - they offer lanterns and cheap lasers etc as well as noisy fireworks.
All in all a very good resort that was a welcome break from the madness of Phi Phi and the filthy state of Baan Rom Mai resort down the road.
Prego restaurant is very close which is lovely but try some of the seafood on the beach - we bought two fresh squid for 100 Baht and asked for it to cooked as crumbed calamari. It was delicious but enough for 6 people!
