We stayed for 3 nights during a holiday travelling in Australia. The bungalows were fabulous, open plan and spacious, clean and with their own terrace overlooking gardens. The location was excellent,close to the main beach and pool area and only 10 minutes walk to the harbour where most of the restaurants and bars are. The whole island is only small,... More

Absolutely loved our stay here! The bungalows are lovely and the surrounding gardens give a feeling of being tucked away in a well equipped jungle setting. The sound of the birds and flight of the bats at twilight is wonderful. The bungalows were well equipped and kept pristine. Plenty of towels for pool and beach use. Loved it!! The reception... More

Ours was quite clean and comfortable. Took cruise whitsundays trip to great barrier reefworld - it's about 2 hour cruise each... More

A perfect stay in this stunning bungalow. The decked porch with a hammock, chairs and table awaited our arrival. The interior matched the outside beauty. A large bed with crisp white bedding, a large luxurious bathroom and a small kitchenette area (we did not use it) went beyond what we required for a short stay. The bungalow was stunning in... More

This was our second stay in the Bungalows but our first stay as a family. Overall, I'd recommend them. They are quite spacious for 2 adults and 2 children. The children's bedding is a sofa bed with a pull out trundle bed underneath. The kitchen facilities are a great option to have although we didn't really make use of them.... More

The bungalows are one of the cheapest accommodation options but they have been beautifully renovated and are so much better than being in a high-rise hotel! It was great having a small fridge and microwave, as we went to the General Store and bottle shop and had evening drinks and nibbles in our room - so much cheaper than going... More

Dear Danielle G Such a pleasure having you and your family here. It sounds like you had an incredible stay and I’m so glad you enjoyed our newly designed Palm Bungalows. I’m perplexed as to why the room servicing team missed such a simple task – But rest assured I will chase it up with them. Thank you for taking... More

What a beautiful location, it would be hard to be disappointed in any hotel or accommodation. Saying that though the bungalows were set in lovely grounds in the larger complex, they were very well appointed, clean (and serviced regularly) modern, lovely comfortable big bed, nice shower and good (but small) cooking facilities should you ever decide to cook for yourself....

we are lucky to live on the oceanfront so had no desire to stay in an oceanfront view room. The Palm Bungalows did not disappoint. Lovely tropical rainforest surrounds, fabulous set up not being attached to anyone else and the hammock on the front porch was the best addition. We loved our evenings after being at the beach sitting enjoy... More

Very nice accommodation,great location. Staying with 8 year old son and having trouble getting him out of the pools. Main bed was very comfy but the roll out for my son was a bit hard. Very humid and hot here at the moment but adds to the experience. Staff all lovely. You do need to book most restaurants in advance... More
