Just spent a lovely 2 weeks with our grandchildren and their mothers. Accommodation was everything we needed, and the supermarket right behind too. Perfect pool and perfect weather too. Managers were helpful at all times with hints and details. Definitely going back for more!! We swam daily, and even gave the tennis and table tennis a go. Go for the... More

Stayed for a week for our anniversary. We loved it. It was sooo relaxing. We didn't want to leave. The managers were fantastic, kind and helpful. We had a lot of rain the week we stayed and the manager brought round umbrellas for us and also DVDs for us to choose from. They were great with our kids too. They... More

Such a pity about the rain during your stay, but it has certainly kept everything green. And so glad we found your son's camera, hopefully he has some great Island Palms & Magnetic Island memories to look back on. Hope to see you for another anniversary. More

What a place, magnificent! From the moment you get off the ferry the friendliness begins. Island Palms Resort is lovely, clean and newly refurbished and has everything you need. The managers are fabulous and other guests were great. Maggie Island has great food spots and you get the double bonus of eating great food whilst enjoying the spectacular views. A... More

Stayed at Island Palms resort with our 27 year old son, who managed a few days with us, which was lovely. Enjoyed the helpfulness of both John and Sheena... what professionals.

We're putting progressive pictures on our Facebook page and when completed will certainly... More

This was my first trip to Magnetic Island June 2013 and Island Palms was the perfect accommodation for me as an over 55 solo traveler. The apartment was spotless, with a well equipped kitchen, large flat screen TV in the lounge room, two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, air conditioning and enough space for a family of four or more....
