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.

My husband and I recently had 5 nights in the Palm Bungalows on Hamilton Island.....we knew it would only be 3 star but I was very impressed with our accommodation. It was totally noise free, clean, recently redone, very comfortable bed....king size....small but good bathroom with a door to the toilet... I have to be honest I am very fussy... More

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

Loved the bungalows. We wanted to try out something other than a hotel room and the Bungalows were perfect. Kids loved them and the air condition there was great. Loved sitting out in the evening taking in the wildlife in the area with Bats and Birds and even wallabies being around us. Cleaning was good. We had breakfast and that... More

Palm Bungalows offer all the hotel facilities without the high rise aspect. Self contained, private, set amongst the palms and gardens and well spaced from each other. Very nicely appointed with kitchenette, good en suite, king bed and couch. Covered porch with hammock for the totally relaxed snooze after your busy day of Island activities. Package can include full buffet... More

We stayed in The Palm Bungalows this week on Hamilton Island. The location was great and you have your own private bungalow with parking beside it for your golf buggy which is the mode of transport around the island. The grounds were beautiful and you have a choice of having breakfast in either of the 3 resort restaurants and get... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the palm bungalows at the beginning of may. With the reviews before, we were a bit hesitant about what number bungalow we were staying in and wondered if it was going to be a refurbished one. We had number 17 and it was perfect. It was the cheaper option, and was pretty. The Palm... More
