The Palm Bungalows are the best way to have a quiet and relaxed stay at Hamilton Island. They are luxury and very new and modern. The view into the rainforest is very nice and the hole day you hear the birds and you can see wallabies. The terrace is also very nice and a good place to stay.

From the moment you land at the airport the organisation, quality and staff welcome is second to none. We were staying in a palm bungalow so checked in at the reef hotel and then taken to our bungalow with our luggage. The bungalows are set back from the road and are surrounded by greenery which is often home to rock... More

When we first started booking our trip, our agent said she could get us into the "nicer" Reef View Hotel for the same price but we told her that the Bungalows was more our thing. We were not disappointed. While the Reef View looks fine, we enjoyed the added privacy and extra room that the Bungalows offered. Don't go by... More

We stayed in Palm Bungalows Hamilton Island for five nights in January 2016. It was a beautiful place to stay with very contemporary feel. Lovely kitchen area and large bathroom with good quality toiletries. It was light and airy with excellent air con which was welcomed as it was particularly hot. There are lots of bars and restaurants to chose... More

We stayed in one of the Palm Bungalows for 4 nights, my main regret was it should have been five or six. The first couple of days we were still recovering from our long journey (from New Zealand) and adjusting to the Queensland time zone. The bungalow had all mod cons - a small kitchenette, efficient air conditioning and wifi... More

My friend and I arrived having paid for a package with Palm Bungalows that included a Great Barrier Reef tour via STA Travel. Upon arrival we were treated fantastically by the friendly staff, however it transpired that STA had not confirmed our Reef Tour. This was obviously a great disappointment as the trip was fully booked and we weren't able... More

The bungalows are well equipped, comfortable and within walking distance of everything Hamilton Island has to offer. The good thing about having your own space away from the hotels is that you have the choice of joining eating in the busy restaurants, wandering down to the harbour, cooking in your own bungalow or even sitting out on your balcony enjoying...

The Palm Bungalows are part of the Reef Hotel and located a short walk from the hotel and within easy walking distance of the Marina with its shops, Catseye Beach and the swimming pools. The bungalows are self-contained with one large room with a kitchenette and a bathroom with shower (but no bath) and a separate WC. There is a... More

This was by no means a relaxing holiday with pressure to obtain a buggy and restaurants fully booked. Breakfast was a noisy and a very busy time with loud inappropriate music in Sails. The pool was overcrowded with not enough sun loungers. Again loud music meant no relaxing here. Even on the beach the music from the pool overwhelmed the... More

We stayed here for 4 nights during our stay on Hamilton Island to celebrate my husbands birthday. Our room 23 was very clean and spacious. We had quite a bit of privacy as we were tucked away from other rooms. We chose this location because it was central and I liked the individual bungalows for added privacy. We had a... More
