Week away My husband and I enjoy a wonderful week at this resort. Loved the firm bed the high pressure shower and having a kitchenette to prepare light meals to be eaten on the terrace. Breakfast at the restaurant was very good and the staff amazing 👏 they are all to be congratulated excellent friendly service. Would highly recommend this resort as the location is perfect.

Would highly recommend staying at the Palm Bungalows. Perfect location, easy walk to each pool and beach; Short walk to and from breakfast. Breakfast was so tasty; full of a variety to choose from. Staff were super friendly and welcoming. Second time staying here and will definitely be back.

My Mum and I stayed at the Palm Bungalows for two nights and were pleasantly surprised. It’s a beautiful, clean, well positioned easy to get around. Thank you for making our stay a memorable one. We enjoyed the hammock, my mums first time on one. She enjoyed her rest.

I was initially impressed when I first entered my bungalow but it went down hill from there. The bathrooms are very modern but mine was not cleaned properly in the toilet area. The air-con makes the bungalow smell like damp/mold. Would only recommend for 2 people max as they are tiny - definitely not suitable for a family. The beds need upgrading as they are very uncomfortable. Nothing included for over $400 a night not even a bottle of water! No assistance with my luggage on check out and it is a fair trek up to the main hotel. There are no views, only of dismal gardens. Overall I felt very ripped off with the standard of accomodation on this Island and next time will definitely rent a private house.

Amazing holiday at Hamilton Island, staying at the Palm Bungalows. Very quiet & central to everything. Bungalows very spacious & serviced daily. We had breakfast included which was delicious & plenty of options, a big thank you to Sophie who was so friendly & helpful. I recommend hiring a buggy & do it weeks before you arrive to ensure you get one. Also pre book dinner at the restaurants as they book out very early. We loved Coca Chu & Pool Terrace. The Marina Tavern is the only place that does not take bookings & the food is great. My recommendations to management would be to replace the coffee table with a small 2 person dining table & chairs. Also a washer & dryer in the bungalows , there is plenty of space & would enable it to be more self contained. A collapsible suitcase stand would also be helpful.
