... to what we were about to see at the beach.
Alli and I spent at least an hour down by the rocks exploring and taking pictures. This is hands down my all time favorite beach now. It looked like it belonged in California versus Florida with all the rocks. Thankfully, this is still a relatively unknown area so wasn't crowded at all. Enjoy the pictures. :)

Flight two to West Palm Beach ended up being fine for Suz, using the two products she had bought although her ears were very blocked when we got to Florida!
We landed at West Palm Beach at 3.15pm, collected our bags, finalised the pre-booked car rental, then caught a shuttle to the rental car. We had a choice of cars & Gav chose a Chrysler 200. Off we drove from West Palm Beach to Miami, about 72 miles away which took about 1 hour 15 minutes.
... around the building to the entrance for another 40 euros or $60. We checked in and got ready for the long flight back. Fortunately we flew business class which made it a bit easier. We arrived back the same day we left, actually 1am in the morning, to 3 happy puppies that were glad to see us. It's been a bit getting back to the ...
... and I have been exhausted by work! For the next 10 days, there will be no work. I will get my first experience on a sailboat and I will see Cliff for the first time since Nov 26. Yah!
I am so excited to see Cliff and meet the other girl, Kluane!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Singer Island Oceanfront/Palm Beaches
Good hotel, pool renovation
we were 2 adults and 1 kid (3y): hotel is ok: very friendly staff, good size rooms, clean. in all good. pool area was hit by huuricane and being renovated but still usable. directly on the beach, which is great. petty about the weather when we arrived but cant blame the hilton for that.
drawback is location in my view, singer island only has a whole lot of hotels strung out over the islands coast, and nothing else, you have to get into the car through a very seedy area to get to west pb proper.
In all good vfm.
Good Hotel for a Good Rate
We visited Hilton Singer Island in July, 2004. It was a wonderful vacation. The beach was convenient and the rooms were clean. The staff was friendly. The balcony was a bit small, but the view was great!
Stayed at the resort July 17 to the 24th. This is our 5th trip to singer island and most likely the best.
Very nice hotel. No complaints with the room. The fridge was a nice bonus. The restaurant was FABULOUS! The menu looks like a typical hotel menu but everything was REALLY EXCELLENT! Mon and Tues are very good days b/c it is usually very uncrowded at the hotel. The beach was wonderful and you do NOT have to rent a cabana to feel comfortable. We bought an umbrella and chair from a nearby Wal-Mart and 'camped out' on the beach everyday. You are 'allowed' to take the towels from the pool to the beach which was very nice. Great execise room that looks out to the pool area. Publix nearby for stuff you might need. (You will pass through a 'bad area' before you cross the bridge to get to Singer Island. Do not worry about that at all!)
I recently spent seven nights at the Singer Island Hilton and had no complaints. The rooms were large, nicely decorated, & very clean. The entire property is tasteful & well-kept. The staff was very nice & service was flawless. The maid came twice a day & we were never without clean towels & things we needed. The pool & the exercise room were above average. Since Singer Island is mainly a retirement community the place is fairly empty during the summer months when the residents go north. Crowds pick up a little on the weekends but are no where near what you find at commercialized beaches. Things are generally quiet & low-key but it's only a 10 minute drive to North Palm Beach where you can find anything you need. It's like the best of both worlds. If you're looking for a first-rate hotel on a low-key beach the Hilton on Singer Island is hard to beat.
We recently returned from a four night stay at the Hilton Singer Island and were very happy we chose this hotel. We had an oceanview room with a good size private balcony. The room was very clean, large, plenty of towels were available at all times, and even included a bathrobe and slippers for both my husband and me. The staff at the front desk and the bellhops were very polite and helpful to the extent that one very busy bellhop still offered to drive us to a nearby restaurant just to make sure we located it! We do wish that we could have enjoyed the beach more without paying outrageous prices for lounge chairs and umbrellas (rented by a private company ont the beach,not the Hilton) but if you want to save money you can always use the large beautiful pool that the Hilton offers. Overall, we would definitely recommend this hotel for both couples and for families with children.
We just returned from a nine day stay at the Hilton, and have only positive comments about our experience. We were originally given a room on the North side of the hotel and were bothered by the noise of the exhaust fans (a/c unit for the hotel??); we asked for another room, and were given a room on the South side the next morning. (The desk staff even offered to have a bellman help us with the move!) We found the staff incredibly polite, informed, and helpful; the pool and beach areas were clean; the restaurant was good and served a wide range of fairly priced dishes; and our room was kept in order by a very efficient housekeeping staff. The hotel itself is a great base for visiting the area: it's within a 5 minute drive of a couple good restaurants, within 15 minutes of restaurants in the Juno / Jupiter area, and within 15 to 20 minutes of decent golfing! If you want to hone your golf game, plan to book a lesson with Rob Bradshaw at the North Palm Beach CC (open to the public, too) - he's fantastic!
Not Hilton quality....
Definitely not what I expected from a Hilton. My room had a small balcony, not even big enough for a chair. Regardless, right outside my window were all of the exhaust fans for the restaurant and laundry below with constant smoke and noise until late in the evening (Northside). Balcony was covered in lint from the exhaust fans. I could not even keep the door open to hear the surf over the roar of the fans.
Not a pleasant experience. I would had expected more from a Holiday Inn. On the positive side Staff was very pleasant and helpful.
Restaurant wait staff were mostly european and difficult to understand at times. Overall not what I expected for the price of the rooms, beachfront or not.
Hotel accomodations were above average. Nice, recently renovated place that, I was told, used to be a Holiday Inn till the Hilton bought it and sunk about 6 million dollars into it. Very good exercise room and pool. Good breakfast buffet. Treated very well by staff. The only problems: the tall condo to the south can block out the sun in the pool area to the south of the hotel. This means to do any sunbathing you have to use the beach, and pay the prices for the use of the beach loungers. windblocks, or umbrellas-- and they're not cheap (independent business). The hotel could solve this by loaning , or even renting out similar items at prices that are much more reasonable. Secondly, I understand they have had a problem or two with private parties, such as wedding parties, renting out prt of the facilites, and then getting out of hand. But I imagine the management has learned from that experience and that such a situation is unlikely to ever occur again.
The rooms were comfortable and spacious. The view was beautiful if you stay on the north side of the building. Nice views of the Atlantic and the intercoastal water way and no construction like on the south side. The beach was lovely. The resturant had a plentiful breakfast buffet. The dinner was a little expensive for the taste. Not much to do on Singer Island other than the beach so you will have to get away for other things. I had a problem with the bathroom sink while I was there but it was handled immediately and satisfactorily.
