Nice private and newly refurb bungalows

The bungalows themselves are fantastic. Close to the beach! They have plenty of space and everything is all new. They provide privacy as no-one is sharing your walls. They have a parking bay for a buggy if you choose to hire one. A private deck at the front with beach chairs and an amazing hammock. Inside I was even surprised that the kitchenette had a microwave and electric cooktop too, plus a good supply of cutlery, cooking utensils and crockery. All the comforts...tv, in house movie range was huge!...air conditioner and ceiling fan. They even had the air-conditioner left on for when we walked in on arrival so the room was cool. We did have some issues (but didn't complain) that the room could've been cleaned a little better. Perhaps, I'm fussy but you shouldn't see people's footprints on the tiled floor when you walk in. Toilet and shower were clean. Cooktop wasn't. Daily servicing was good, I was told that it occurred after 10am ... but on our first morning they knocked on the door (and woke us) at 7.37am to say "Housekeeping!" so we told them to not come in again and just leave the daily towels, toiletries, toilet paper etc.... on a chair outside the bungalow. They were great with that. The phone wouldn't connect to the tour desk or other extensions, so each time we had a question we had to ring with our own mobile phone, a little let down. Also had to ring for the clothes hanger/drier that should've been there but wasn't. They came round with one quickly though. .... the activities on the island are fast, fun and breathtaking dependant on what you choose. Water temperature was nice and warm. My husband and I are 36 and loved all the adventurous things to do.... The great barrier reef was stunning and an opportunity that I don't think anyone should miss. Plan to go back with the kids next year. Staff on the island were amazing. Very friendly and eager to help. This was our 15th wedding anniversary and we loved it. Would definitely choose the bungalows again. Also, if you're fit - everything is within walking distance.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Always get the buffet breakfast. With a late breakfast you're full up til the afternoon. Just need a snack and you're fine til Dinnertime. The bungalows allowed us to shop for snacks and some dinners to save $. Pies in a microwave and chicken breast cooked up and put in wraps. It can add up if you eat out dinner EVERY night. For eg... a pie from the bakery and a drink of water was over $9. But we got a pack of 4 pies from the general store for just over $11. Spend your money on a good meal out and things to do rather than overpriced lunches and snacks.

Well, I visited Hamilton Island

Well, I visited Hamilton Island just after the easter break, so it was very quite and I was upgraded to the Reefview Hotel. In the island everything is very expensive. Although it is very small and pretty much everything is in walking distance, they offer golf buggies for rent ($85/day). All staff and some rental buggies run on petrol and make a lot of noise. My room was on the 8th floor, but it was much noisier than my unit in inner Sydney. It sounds like someone always mows the lawn. You always have to watch out on the road because the island is not a "shared" environment; buggies have right of way. It is an excellent way to put on a few extra pounds... I found it pretty pointless and annoying. The marina (where the restaurants are) is less than 10 min walk and connected by a constant bus service. The Palm bungalows are close to the road, so the noise is even louder there.

Great place, like having your own little house just without the microwave and stove. You also get your own carpark right beside the bungalow for a buggy if you rent one. Nice and roomy and good size tv. The island itself is also great to stay on. Lots to do. When i return this is where I would stay again.

The rom was over priced for the standard. The hut was more akin to a back packers in Thailand. There is agym on site but you had to pay extra if you were staying in the Palm Bungalows and i was already paying $315 a night. I have been to Hamilotn Island 4 times but wont be going back.
