We travelled as a family of three - a 4yr old girl with us who absolutely loved the bungalow. The studio was spacious, and the kitchenette was discrete and very handy. We often bought groceries and ate on the balcony to avoid costly meals at restaurant. My daughter also loved cuddling up with me in the hammock. She chattered, I... More

Dear Carol N What an incredible review to read. It sounds like you have had the perfect Family holiday here with us. I’m so glad to hear you were able to enjoy our newly refurbished Palm Bungalows – The hammocks are perfect for an afternoon nap & the location of the bungalows is indeed only a short stroll to just...

We were pleasantly surprised with the modern room. It is perfect for our family with 2 small children so we can all stay close together. Good sized room. We also have the dine around package which does cause some confusion at restaurants. Kids are not included at some restaurants and there is limited choice at some as well. They really... More

We stayed in the Palm Bungalows for 4 nights in October 2013. Had we realised that the whole island is a single owner monopoly enterprise I think we probably would have chosen to just visit for the day, and stayed elsewhere in the Whitsundays - however, we didn't and these are our opinions. Flew in direct from Cairns to H.I.... More

The Palm Bungalows are clean and comfortable as they are newly refurbished. The kitchenette is good as I could buy in dinner and have a meal with proper cutlery. Outside, you can hear the birds chirping and singing and we saw cockatoos, a kookaburra, and a host of other birds. It is like a bird park! We took breakfast at... More

We stayed here for just one night after an overnight boat trip on the Great Barrier Reef and just loved it! The room was charming and spacious, and looked recently updated. We did one of the hikes from the property and had a great time. We really wished we had more time there. A very charming place and we will... More

Three adults enjoyed our four days on Hamilton Island. We stayed in one of the Palm Bungalows. Our breakfast came with our room. The buffet at the Wildlife Cafe was fine, nothing to write home about. The buffet at the reef hotel was wonderful; many choices. The sofa pull out bed was a trundel bed with a very hard mattress.... More

My wife and I stayed here on the second stop of a three pronged assault on Australia in September 2013. We were initially lured in by the pictures and reviews from Tripadvisor, and the positive spins are all an accurate portrayal of this excellent self-catering accommodation. You can spend a lot of money on accommodation on Hamilton Island, but I... More

The Bungalows are a great alternative for those who want something more private than your standard high rise hotel. Set amongst palm trees and a tropical garden it is an ideal setting for a relaxing few days. The rooms are spacious with a basic kitchenette and all the usual fittings. The beds are very good as is the air con,... More

We stayed during the recent cyclone, started in one near the Reef Hotel, very handy to facilities but discovered there were others with far more private and tranquil settings. Ask for numbers 30 to 37 or 45 to 50 - you will thank me if you get one, these are the best located to the pools and beach and for... More
