Nice hotel,, partially renovated
Bungalows, not a big building
nice bungalows, closed to the beach. it doesn't have a swimming pool but you can go to the ones of the other hotels as they all belong to the same company. we recommend to book the new rooms, which are slightly more expensive as they are definitely better. they don't have breakfast but you can go the other hotels as well.

Lovely hotel with good view of the beach
Room is spacious with two double beds, the washroom is also big with shower and bath. Comfortable stay, except there was some renovation work outside the room in the day time, and had a weird smell for a while. Staff quite helpful, restaurants on the island are expensive, but have generally a good quality

Paradise with service
room size, service and location (note the upgrade)
yes it is expensive! but there are many inclusions in this hotel that i didn't see stated on agoda. first we were treated to an upgrade to reef view hotel room on level 9. all rooms face the ocean and the view was stunning! the rooms were quite big and spacious and you could easily fit 4 friends or more. the bathroom was also large. service at the hotel was fantastic. 5 star! as it is a small island you can even order from the local restaurants and have it delivered to your door! if you are flying in there is a curtesy bus and if you are coming by ferry you can arrange pick up for free (its a short 10 minute walk if that from the ferry and about 20 minute walk from the airport if that). included in the room fee was access to: - the fitness centre - tennis courts - spa and multiple pools - canoe hire - catamaran hire - snorkles - and more! if there are a few of you and you take advantage of these services you can really save a lot of money! i would definately stay here again.

What vews!!!
Big rooms and those views!!!
we arrived at check in and learned we had been upgraded to a high floor sea view room in the reef view hotel. we had reserved the palm bungalows as it seemed to be all that was available. our room was magnificent. the coral sea lay before us! rooms are big and well appointed. nice bar area,fridge and big bathroom. what a treat to sit and watch sun sink with a cold beer in hand and the swooping noisy cockatoos visiting on the balcony. tip...close your balcony door when out of the room. they are known to fly into the room!!! hamilton is a lovely island despite being very over priced. the one thing we did not like about the reef view hotel was the poor service in the pool restaurant. half empty,but we were told wait for a reservation!!!! indifferent staff and very poor maitre d hotel in charge. and food is over priced with very small helpings. avoid this place.there are better restaurants at visitor centre area.

great location but no personal touch from staffs
except the front desk staffs and in the restaurant, we do not have any chance to see other staffs.It is a bit lonely to stay here.Australia hospitality quality is far from good.

Booked for a friend!
The location is perfect, you can walk to the beach, the public pools, or the restaurants at the marina.
These bungalows are very basic and are in need of an overhall!
I booked this for a friend for my wedding and she seemed to enjoy it but me, I'd opt for a resort or hotel any day. These bungalows are very basic and are in need of an overhall but unfortunately on Hamilton Island, all the hotels are over rated, and over priced so this is the cheapest option for the location.

very good service
clean , great place
We loved Palms Bangalows on Hamilton Island Australia. Nice and clean. Very good room service. Nice and friendly staff. Very comfy bed and pillows. Great surroundings. We felt like we are living in the bush , sounds of birds in the morning were great. We loved 2 little kangaroos visiting us in the morning
