The Hamilton Island location is a great one. The resort is good but does feel a bit like a posh holiday camp & disney-esque at times including the prices. We stayed during Race Week which we didn't know at the time of booking which meant the place had a buzz but also noisy & crowded at times. Palm bungalows were... More

Stayed for 12 nights in bungalow 25 (other tripadvisor post recommendation was 20-30 so asked for that and it was good) and we had a lovely stay. The bungalows were not as special as the ones we stayed in in Fiji, just a bit plain by comparison. The bed was very comfortable and the shower area was excellent. Storage (drawers... More

The room appeared to be clean with all amenities.About day 5 of our stay my husband woke up with strange clusters of bites all over his body. We searched the room for bugs of any kind and found nothing.A day later I woke... More

Stayed for a work conference and loved the palm bungalows. Plenty of space to relax and unwind with a hammock on the front deck. Comfortable bed and peace and quiet! Loved that it was a little way from the main hotel and the golf carts were great to get around. Wifi connection was a good speed for working when I... More

We stayed for six nights as one of us was attending conference on the island. The bungalows are good as they have everything one needs - comfortable bed, clean (initially) and modern, glasses and kitchen basics, light and breezy, and quiet with enough privacy. The location is handy to everything on the island - the restaurants and the marina so... More

My wife and I stayed at the palm bungalows as part of our honeymoon in Australia and couldn't fault them. The cleanliness and space is great. Good kitchen area and toiletries. Fantastic location (number 28) - just a few minutes on foot to the marina and main pool/beach. The King size bed was really comfortable. The only slight downside was... More

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
