I stayed with my husband at the Palm Bungalows for 2 nights in December 2016. I should be clear from the outset that Hamilton Island as a whole was really not for us - it felt like a holiday camp for the rich, over-commercial and totally lacking in culture. But if you like having everything on your doorstep then I...

We stayed two nights on Hamilton Island at the Palm Bungalows as part of a 'bucket list' tour of Australia and found them to be ideally suited for our brief stay. Our bungalow had a decent sized bedroom, comfortable bed, quiet air conditioning and an excellent shower and felt calm and tranquil next to the bustle of the adjacent huge...

Palm Bungalows offer a quiet getaway from the rest of the island. The bungalows are modern & clean with a comfortable bed & well equiped kitchen. We liked the extra touch of a hammock on the balcony & enjoyed watching the local birds.

My wife and I stayed at the Palm Bungalows for 5 nights between the 19-24th Dec 2016 as part of our trip to Queensland. The bungalows are very well appointed, light and airy and ideal for couples. However, we feel it would be a little cramped if children had to share. Each bungalow consists of a open plan bedroom with...

Palm Bungalows was a great destination for our first family holiday. The room was modern and new but only big enough for a family of 3 with a young child. We had fresh towels for the pool delivered daily and the decor and bedding were excellent. Some of the best sleeps I've had. Palm bungalows is central to a lot...

Taking into account that we paid 1200 AUD per night, its a huge rip off. The bungalows are basic at the best. Not very clean. Note: NO ROOM SERVICE, basically no service at all. If you stay at the bungalows you will be looked at as a cheap back backer paying 5 star prices. you are excluded from most parts...

If you want to stay on Hamilton Island this is definitely a great way to do so. The Palm Bungalows are ideal located, yet somehow isolated and quiet. A short walk to the beach and restaurants, the marina, bus shuttle and they have parking sport for the buggies. Yes they are a bit dear but as always you get what...

My Husband and I stayed here for 10 nights for our Honeymoon over the Christmas/New years period. The room itself was everything we needed - comfortable bed, quiet location (no screaming children, from inside the room didn't hear any outside noise at all!), well equipped kitchenette. Bathroom was clean and had all the essentials. The room was air conditioned, there...

We spent six nights at the palm bungalows and we could not fault the accommodation nor the island. We stayed in bungalow 44 and it was very quiet and relaxing. Clean, decent bed, very good shower and bathroom and mini kitchen and fridge for basics. We got to see the wildlife right on our door step. Highly recommended!
