I stayed here for a couple of nights with some relatives and we all agreed that this was great value for money. The accomodation was very clean and tidy, self-contained but with a pool, garden and use of a barbeque. It is right near the Picnic Bay jetty, local amenities and bus stop. We were made to feel really welcome... More

My parents and my husband and I visited Maggie a number of times and stayed at Tropical Palms Inn. Now the family tradition lives on as we now visit Maggi with our daughter and son in law. (Mum and dad would be so happy). Tropical Palms Inn is such a relaxing place to stay. It's not 5 star but offers... More

A simple old school accommodation establishment with clean rooms and owners who care . It's also in a great location! Golf course, pubs and restaurants all close by. The picnic bay jetty is special and the beach has a swimming net for this time of year!

I Don't usualy write reviews, but thought one was deserved here. Dave and Michelle are excellent hosts. From the time of making the booking - which was done over the phone and strait forward, to check inn, from the car hire and then check out - everything was done effortless, simple and with no hassles. They are both more than... More

A wonderful 12 unit Inn! Quiet, yet and easy walk to Picnic Bay. Bus will stop / pick-up right in front of Inn. They also rent cars. The owners were wonderful and provided us with information and attraction on the island. Excellent price, especially considering they include aircon and (sufficient) Internet access. We enjoyed our seven day stay, which was... More

Tropical Palms is a quiet, relaxing motel with self-contained cooking facilities. While there is some free daily Internet, extra time can be purchased if staying longer. It is only one block back from the beach, the hotel/restaurant and the bus stop which provides a hop on/off service around the island if you don't have a car. Room are not serviced... More

This is a nice little motel. It is located in a quiet and slow corner of Magnetic Island, but has a beach with stinger net and a restaurant/pub within short walking distance. The place is well maintained, rooms are clean and equipped with the bare necessities. Laundry facilities available, as well as car rentals. Pool and barbecue area is lovely,... More

Great few days over Christmas. Friendly and accomodating staff, great rooms, tropical gardens (with a BBQ available to guests) and pool.. Perfect location, short walk to the pub, the beach and a cafe for great brekkies. Would highly reccommend Tropical Palms as a place for friends to gather..
