“Whitsunday Golf club”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

WGC had a wonderful weekend there October 2013 and we're all back again this year for a little bit longer this time. Great value, wonderful position, unanimously great time. Easy walk to the golf club, pub and waterfront. Nice and quiet.

A wonderful 12 unit Inn! Quiet, yet and easy walk to Picnic Bay. Bus will stop / pick-up right in front of Inn. They also rent cars. The owners were wonderful and provided us with information and attraction on the island. Excellent price, especially considering they include aircon and (sufficient) Internet access. We enjoyed our seven day stay, which was both relaxing (back at the Inn) and adventures (exploring the island). Definitely one of our highlights while visiting the country of Australia.

Tropical Palms is a quiet, relaxing motel with self-contained cooking facilities. While there is some free daily Internet, extra time can be purchased if staying longer. It is only one block back from the beach, the hotel/restaurant and the bus stop which provides a hop on/off service around the island if you don't have a car.

Room are not serviced daily unless you request an additional service (charges apply). However, this was not a problem.

Room Tip: Rooms 1-8 are on the ground floor with easy access to the pool and barbecue.

This is a nice little motel. It is located in a quiet and slow corner of Magnetic Island, but has a beach with stinger net and a restaurant/pub within short walking distance. The place is well maintained, rooms are clean and equipped with the bare necessities. Laundry facilities available, as well as car rentals. Pool and barbecue area is lovely, service is good. In my opinion you need a car for exploring the island if you choose to stay here, if you have one this is a good place to stay.

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.
