Was our first trip to Magnetic Island and we decided to stay at the Tropical Palms Resort after reading other travelers reviews and we are so glad we did. Being experienced travelers are highest priority when staying anywhere is cleanliness and this place gets a 10/10, this included our room, the Hotel surrounds and the car we hired for the...

Thank you for your comments. we try very hard to present the resort as best we can. It also helps having the world best cleaner, gardener, office assistant all rolled into one person. We couldn't operate without Helen.

The rooms are extremely clean. Self contained which suits us. Grab a slab of beer, some nibbles and food when you first arrive then sit back and enjoy the quiet peaceful surroundings. Feed the possums who come and visit after dark. The staff are friendly and helpful. Play a round of golf, hand feed wallabies or just relax by the...

Great facilities and close to the pub. Owners could not be more helpful and attentive. Pool was very welcoming after a day of walking the tracks close by. A BBQ is for the guests use adjacent to the pool area, will do that next time.

The convener who organised a group full-day competition at the Magnetic Island Country Golf Club sought nearby overnight accommodation and selected this motel. It is within easy walking distance from the club and is located within a few minutes walk to the Picnic Bay Hotel enabling one to obtain a variety of meals to suit one's budget.

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...

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.
