I agree with a previous reviewer about the park's WiFi and cable. Except for local channels cable is all standard definition. Internet, even with a park issued modem for a $100 deposit, is a maximum speed of 3 mbps except when it goes out which is often. A park this expensive should have better electronic amenities. Having noted that, as many other reviewers have noted, the park is very nice with lots of amenities and friendly staff and residents. This is our second winter here. It is located in an area with numerous restaurants, groceries, and other things to do. Love the location. If you are bored here it is your own fault. - hawkpat

The Wi-Fi and the TV service provided by this park is very poor. This high end, high $ park claims to provide these services, but it is lacking by to days standards. Plan on using Direct-TV or similar other, and providing your own WI-FI when you are comparing costs. - jmorgan54

Lush oasis in the midst of all that the Rio Grand Valley has to offer. Everything about this place is above average. Most sites have large concrete pads that will accommodate your RV and tow vehicle and still have room for chairs etc. And your site will be surrounded by grass and lush palm trees and other beautiful plants in many areas. The location is central and makes visits to Mexico, State Parks (2), Costco, and shopping very convenient. The park recently upgraded all of the equipment in their gym. Beautiful pool with 2 hot tubs. Rate reflects approximate cost with Thousand Trails Zone pass+ Trails Collection. This is a 55+ park. No litter anywhere in the park, immaculate, beautifully maintained club house and common areas. - Todd Fogelberg

It appears as if the RV sites have not been updated since in 60's. Small concrete, and most are all broken up. Some sites so small one cannot put slides out. The water lines are so old they are brittle and can break very easy. Lots are poorly maintained, just mostly dirt and dead grass which you track in your unit every day!! Office help gives you someone else mail quite often, and can't find yours. I would advise staying somewhere else. They have a lot of Park Models here; in my opinion they really don't care about RV's. - BLUEGRASS MUSIC LOVER

The RV sites vary in this park. Some have concrete, and some are dirt/grassy with concrete pads. They have large or small concrete pads. Yes, some are very small and they rent at a very discounted rate, if your rig is small. As far as the dirt being tracked in, all I can say was that we have had a lot of rain lately, and the entire area of Donna, Texas has been muddy, not just Palm Shadows. THE MAIL: is delivered by the United States Post Office. This park has no control over how they deliver it. If a mistake is made, the residents bring it back to the office and it is placed in the proper boxes. Considering there are over 500 lots here, I am sure the postmaster makes a mistake now and then. Yes, there are many park models here, but they are also very RV friendly too. We are here for the winter in a travel trailer. They have been so nice to us and treat all RVer's GREAT. Nice here too: is that they have a full bar with beer and wine at very reasonable prices. Hard booz can be brought into the bar, and purchase set-ups very cheap with a cup of ice to boot. Most all RV parks in the Donna, Texas area have some dating to them, but they really try to keep things nice here. If there is a water problem, it is fixed that day. I feel that this is a very nice park and really have enjoyed staying here. The Rio Grande Valley is a fun place and Donna, Texas is right in the heart of that area, which makes this a very central location. Oh yeah, they have music in the bar almost every night. It has been lots of fun listening and dancing to the music from rock and roll to new and old country. Karaoke is on Wednesday nights, what a blast that is! Big Band on Fridays so don't miss that. It is open to the public. So all in all, a very nice park! - Donnasue

Very nice winter Texas park. The regulars made us feel at home and were very friendly. People we have met that are staying in other parks remarked that Palm Shadows was the most friendly park in the Rio Grand Valley. Many people have wintered here for more than ten years. Continual activities going on from church on Sunday to live entertainment in the bar. Some sites were narrow, but they will not put a rig with slide outs in a narrow site. It had very nice landscaping with palm trees at almost every site. We met and made many new friends. The rate reflects a three month stay. All in all we had a very good time and would stay here again. - consort

This is primarily a WInter Texan park, with a mix of mobile homes, park models, and RV's. Most of the guests are from Canada and the northern United States. Plenty of activities including shuffleboard, horseshoes, card games, bingo, etc. We stayed two weeks in early march and weren't looking for social activities, but the park is clean and secure, and our site was fine. Overall the park is looking a bit old and tired, like so many of the older snowbird parks in the Valley. - Mark & Teri

Nice, friendly with easy access. Bean bag olympics played here this year was very entertaining. Very clean, however a few things could be looked at in the showers, easy fix. Would come back. - being honest 123

RV sites were grass with some having concrete pads for tow vehicle parking and were spread out in the front of the park. RV sites are squeezed in between permanent "wrapped" RVs, mobile homes, or park models, and are very narrow. Majority of sites in the park are FT owners who leave their units in the park. Lots of ants, mosquitoes and no-see-ums. Park was generally clean with a very nice remodeled laundry room. Employees were friendly. Lots of activities. Happy hour every weekday from 3-5 with barely live entertainment. Extremely well lit. Noise (traffic, border patrol and airport within a block of park) was annoying. No cable, no Wi-Fi, no picnic tables.
The best part of our stay was the very friendly people staying there. They were from all over the US and Canada. We will truly miss them but we will never stay in this park again.
Rate is based on 4 months at $1,640 for Dec. 2014-March 2014. Electricity was extra averaging $50-60 per month. And with a very unseasonable cold winter, gas bottles were being refilled weekly. - SewSoBeachy
