We stayed at the Palm Bungalows for 5 nights with our 9-month old as our first family getaway. A high chair, port-a-cot & baby bath was organised which gave me complete peace of mind that we had everything we needed (for the baby) for the duration of our stay. Management were very helpful and very prompt with responding to my... More

My partner and I spent 4 nights in the palm bungalows and only returned home yesterday. Working in the industry I do find myself being quite critical, but I try to stay relaxed about it all. Our room was perfect for two (#39), large enough bathroom for two people to get ready, and a very comfortable fluffy king sized bed.... More

We are currently staying in Bungalow 26 at Palm Bungalows on Hamilton Island and have 5 more days of our trip to go. :( - The bungalows are perfect. Great location, really good set up for families with a small kitchen and fridge and a short walk to everything. It is the little things that count and one thing I... More

My husband and I enjoyed our 6 day stay at the Palm Bungalows. The rooms were spacious and the kitchenette came in handy, allowing us to cook some meals and save money. The verandah with the hammock was a lovely addition to the room. The location was good as well, allowing for easy access to different parts of the island.... More

My daughter and I just loved our little bungalow. The girls did a great job everyday cleaning, it was spotless. Extra towels a lovely touch. I loved eating my breakfast on the verandah each morning amongst the beautiful tress, little wallabies, birds etc. my daughter loved the hammock to relax in. Didn't bother going over to boring breakfasts at hotel,... More

Enjoyed a relaxing stay in quiet surroundings in the Bungalows. Clean well presented accomodation on a very high activity island resort. The hammock on the balcony was a nice touch. No room service but only a short walk to restaurants and bars.

We stayed in bungalow 4 which was a perfect location as far as we were concerned. Just away from the high rise hotel and sports complex, but close enough to walk everywhere. Obviously these bungalows had been recently refurbished - fresh paint, everything spotlessly clean. Could not fault the amenities provided, and considering the work being done in other parts... More

We stayed at the Palm Bungalows for 5 nights last week (June 2014). While the facilities are well appointed and the Palm Bungalows are very well located on the Island, their hygiene practices left us feeling appalled. On the fourth morning of our stay, we accidentally spilled some red wine on the bedsheets. It made a bit of a mess... More

We stayed for 5 nights at the palm bungalows and absolutely enjoyed every minute. As we were traveling with our 6 month old baby I was a little worried to say the least. This is the perfect type of accommodation if you are considering traveling with a small baby. There is enough room between the bungalows so you can't hear... More
