Positive Reviews

Lovely Spacious Bungalows

A number of reviewers who travelled as a couple commented that the bungalows were a good choice for couples or for those guests wanting to escape the crowd of the high-rise apartments on the island and experience a little more authentic stay.

Bungalows Central to Most

A number of guests liked that the Bungalows were generally central to most things on Hamilton Island including the Marina which is a ten minute walk from the hotel.

Pools Everywhere

Palm Bungalows is managed by the the Reef hotel and therefore guests also have use of their pool complex, giving guests who stayed at the Palm Bungalows access to three pools. A number of reviewers mentioned relaxing by the pool as their favourite pastime.

Negative Reviews

Minor Maintenance Matters

Some guests encountered minor maintenance issues during their stay and whilst the hotel swiftly attended to their requests to have these items fixed, it still caused some frustration as it disrupted guests stay. Major bug-bears included non-flushing toilets and doors not closing properly.

Sorry Fully Booked

It seems that the on-site restaurant which require a nightly reservation needs to be booked a few nights in advance as there are not enough seats to the cater for the demand across the resort. Some guests also commented that breakfast was a noisy and crowded affair as people descended early to get the best tables and swoop the food.

Far from the Beach

Some guests commented that whilst they liked the beach they thought that the hotel was little bit too much of a hike from it and scrambling over a small hill was not their idea of beach escape. However its seems that this did not distract too much from their overall holiday.
