We just had a 60th birthday celebration and we couldn't have picked a better place. The staff are fantastic all over the island. The free bus service is regular. Walking is possible but there are some steep hills. We didn't bother hiring the self drive golf buggy type transport. Quick walk to Catseye beach where the water sports are great.... More

We stayed there from the 13-19th of August 2016. The weather wasn't the best yet we had a wonderful time. We had a choice of three places to eat for breakfast yet we chose to eat at the Reefview hotel, the food was great. The pools and beach are a great place to relax. There is so much to see... More

The Palm Bungalows was one of the cheapest option we got at the time of booking among the accommodation offer on Hamilton Island. Location is good - half way between cats eye beach and the marina. We hired a buggy but you can easily walk or catch the bus! The room is self contained if you fancy cooking, we didn't... More

My partner and i loved this hotel. It was small but spacious especially just for the two of us. It is located in the middle of all the main places to go so it was great. Only thing to be careful is that the freezer is small and doesnt have a door as it is inside a bar fridge. We... More

Peace and quiet for a relaxing break. Handy to everything from the beach to the Marina eateries. We were able to use the free island bus to move around or take the uphill/downhill exercise to stroll to the Marina. Would definitely recommend.

Great location. We as a couple, would definitely stay there again. Bungalows 38-50 best spot. No sea views, but lovely bush setting. Very quiet. Staff are magic. So many options for meals which are from snacks to silver service. Beach is very nice and safe. Many water sports and lots of pools which never seemed overcrowded. We will definitely be... More

I have to say I loved this hotel. The bungalow we had was right by the little wildlife park they have. It was a five minute walk (up and down) a steep hill to the marina, and a few minutes from the resort centre and beaches. The bungalow had a decent bathroom (great shower) and a small kitchen area, along... More
