Very nice bungalow. Huge bed and additional bed for our 8y old daughter. Self contained kitchen with basic equipment. Every morning service. Absolutely lovely place. Kangaroos front of your house twice a day. Close to everywhere. 5-15min walk. Don't need buggy. Pointless. One tip: Extra kid mattress was horrible. Every night she was coming to us. That could be look... More

Palm Beach Hotel from 21/06/2016 till 28/06/2016 room No 315. I would like to thanks for everything. But can’t keep silence about one thing. On the last day somebody took out from mini bar two bottles of drinks and the amount of 11 Euro has been deducted. Dear Sirs!!! I DO NOT drink vodka “Finlandia” and gin “Gordon”. I DO... More

We stayed for three nights in the Palm Bungalows and had a perfect weekend. From the time we disembarked from a direct Qantas flight, the resort staff were there at the airport to usher their guests to the luggage and transport to the hotel. We were checked in within 5 minutes and delivered to our bungalow by buggy. We were... More

Visiting Hamilton island for a wedding our family, 2 adults and one child, chose to stay at the bungalows. We were very impressed with the service and the accommodation. It was clean and modern with plenty of space for us all. The air conditioning worked well, and the kitchen facilities were handy. It's a nice quiet area, but still close... More

This place is a joke. We are only here for one night and it is a madhouse. Everything is booked out, can' even get a buggy even though there would be 30 sitting in the hire outlet. Reception staff are unhelpful and rude. We asked for a late checkout. We were told that it was a special occasion for the... More

It surprised me how many young families were on the plane to Hamilton island. Stay away from the big tower block that houses these people if you're planning a romantic holiday. We went one morning to the tower for breakfast and never went back again. A cess-pit of babies, crying and big families. Consider the extra price on Palm bungalows... More

This was a great option for us - the bungalow was clean, contained everything we needed, was spacious and in a handy position. The service we received from the resort was fantastic at all times. The restaurants were hit and miss though - Coca Chu and Tako were both fantastic, but Sails was a bit pedestrian. For those thinking of... More

Stayed in bungalow 46 - quiet as requested and as promised. A short walk to Catseye beach, pool, Cocachu and wild-life centre. Also, only 10min walk to marina - can't really understand why anyone with two legs would rent a buggy to do the trip. Had basic cooking amenities and much more spacious and private than hotel room. Bathroom very... More

I stayed here for five nights with my best friend whilst travelling Australia. The bungalow itself was bigger than we expected and comes with a double bed, kitchenette, television, iPod docking station, lots of cutlery, glassware and crockery and a bathroom (including a lovely rain shower). The room is air conditioned and also has a ceiling fan. We also liked... More
