Extremely disappointed. Would not go back. Paying top price for resort that was nowhere near ready to be up and running after cyclone Debbie. Paying top price for food that you could get at your local pub. Some restaurants and shops still closed. The Island was not quiet or tranquil. Woken each morning at 7am to the sounds of chainsaws...

For my birthday my husband arranged for us to visit Hamilton Island and stay at the Palm Bungalows for three nights for my birthday. The accommodation was beautiful and peaceful. The bungalows had their own kitchen as well as fridge. The bathrooms was spacious. A big positive was that as the bungalows are not connected you are not annoyed by...

Bungalows we are a good size, good rate & serviced daily. We had our own patio with a hammock which was great to relax & read a book in. Staff were wonderful & had done a great job of cleaning up after cyclone Debbie. Plenty of places to eat & activities to suit everyone.

We stayed 3 nights at Palm Bungalows in March, less than a week before Cyclone Debbie hit. Loved our bungalow, very private, and peaceful. Well-equipped, clean, lovely surroundings, lots of beautiful exotic shrubs surrounding the bungalows, birdsong, and wallabies right outside the bungalow one evening. The staff (based at the reef View Hotel) were very pleasant, and when phoned for...

First couple of days were good but a bit too pricey on majority of things. Lack of communication when cyclone hit. People should have been evacuated but no option was given. Unable to do a lot of things due to weather. The bungalows were good and they were clean. Majority of staff were great.

We wanted to stay at Qualia but they were booked, and about $600 more a night so we saved a lot of $$. The Palm Bungalows were actually really nice. It felt like have a nice sized studio apartment. However, the resort facilities need an update. Hamilton is an island that feels a little like a cruise ship, there is...

The Palm Bungalows are an excellent place to stay while visiting Hamilton Island. Ground level, centrally located and free standing so are mostly very quite. However, had we known the Super League Triathlon was being held (17-19 March) during our stay we would have booked a different time. The triathlon forced the closing of Front Street to road traffic, which...

Stayed here at Xmas with my children, the palm bungalows were great! Plenty of room, and so close to the pool, beach and restaurants.. the kids loved the space and the hammock on the balcony was definitely a highlight for them. Will definitely be back!

We stayed at the Palm bungalows for 3 nights. The ferry and baggage service was great and we were able to check into our room earlier than the scheduled time. The porters were also very helpful giving a buggy ride to the bungalows. The apartment itself was clean, spacious and modern. Beds were also very comfy and house keeping were...
