“Great get away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2014

Great few days over Christmas. Friendly and accomodating staff, great rooms, tropical gardens (with a BBQ available to guests) and pool.. Perfect location, short walk to the pub, the beach and a cafe for great brekkies. Would highly reccommend Tropical Palms as a place for friends to gather..

We have stayed at Tropical Palms a couple of times. Managers are the owners and very accommodating. Quiet and peaceful with a very pretty pool. Cooking facilities in room means you dont have to eat out if you are trying to save. Only a 10min walk to the golf course and is ideal for families with a BBQ just outside the pool area. A win win for mum, dad and the kids. Rooms are clean and very comfortable.

Room Tip: No tip - simply tell them what you are lloking for and they try to accommodate.

This is the way you should experience Magnetic Island - Picnic Bay in particular. Friendly unpretentious, comfortable. All you need for a relaxing few days. Good cooking facilities and nice pool. Meals available at the Hotel around the corner, as well as cafes for take-away and coffee.
However do stock up at Nelly Bay for basics such as bread and milk.
So sit back and enjoy this very special part of Queensland. Forget the Gold Coast style hotels...the Tropical Palms is the way Picnic Bay was and thankfully, still is.

Room Tip: Upper floor or ground near pool is quieter.

We stayed at the Tropical Palms for two nights and found it to be a really lovely, laid-back place. The rooms had everything we needed, the pool was very pretty, and the owners were lovely and very accommodating. It was a nice, relaxed place to base ourselves for a couple of days on Magnetic Island. The fish paintings in our room were cute and quirky, and the hotel had more of a personal feel than a big resort. We didn't use out kitchen, as we opted to eat at the fantastic restaurant down the block (ask the hotel owners for recommendations), but it seemed well equipped. It was comfortable and well worth the price.

Stayed here over new years, there was a minimum four night rental per room. However it was very good value despite taking four nights. There is a pub around the corner or cooking facilities and communal BBQ at the apartment. The outdoor BBQ area and pool are pleasant. There are 12 apartments in the complex. I would stay there again as it was clean, pleasant and very good value for budget conscious traveller.
