We were initially worried about getting a taxi but the resort is located a short walk from the Ferry terminal. From the very minute we arrived we were greeted with the best customer service and our room was available early which was a surprise bonus. Our room on the third floor was perfect, up high with a beautiful sea breeze at night to cool the place down. Fans in the rooms would be a welcome addition as we are not huge air-con uses but the window left open at night worked a treat (air-con off). The rooms are spacious, modern and clean. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of utensils and cook ware of very good quality. The furniture is comfortable and adequate. The resort managers, Linda and Dave were friendly, helpful and lovely to talk with. The location was convenient, only a short walk to several cafes and restaurants and a reasonable "Foodworks" supermarket. We were really impressed with Magnetic Island and we enjoyed our week staying here. We hope to return in the near future. Thank you for an awesome stay

If you are coming to Magnetic Island we recommend you check this place out. The hosts are super friendly and will cater to your every need. We asked for a room with a great view and received just that! The resort itself is on the older side but these guys are working hard every single day and are continually updating and improving the resort for the enjoyment of guests. We loved the rooftop bbq, beautiful pool and location right across from the playground and beach. If you walk along the rocky jetty in the morning or evening you'll see gorgeous rock wallabies too! You cannalso order Coles and Woolworths to your self contained apartment but don't do what I did and order food to be cooked in the oven as there isn't one! ;-)

Absolutley lovely Resort hosts, Linda and David. Always smiling, happy and ready to help. The Resort is located on the beach, close to a jetty you can fish and catch dinner from. Walking distance to supermarkets, bottle shops, pharmacy and lots of excellent restaurants. They have fishing gear, snorkeling, chairs, kyacks and more that you can borrow for free. Rental cars on site and the bus stops are right out front. The rooms are well appointed and clean. Great pool and plenty of BBQs to use. Fantastic place to stay we will be back. Thankyou Island Palms Resort 10 out of 10.
