Nice Accommodation, Great Views

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 22, 2006

Our accommodation was located on the side of a hill overlooking Catseye Beach and surrounded by palm and gum trees which were the home of the beautiful white cockatoo. A 3 story building (no lift) our spacious room was on the second floor which gave us a fabulous view of of the beach and resort extending inland to include the Reef View Hotel. The balcony was the ideal place to rest with a cool drink and enjoy the peaceful beauty of Hamilton Island.
Our room was well equipped with refrigerator, kettle, television, a large bathroom and was serviced daily, sometimes late afternoon.
Included in the package was an excellent buffet breakfast at either Toucan Tango Cafe & Bar by the pool and beach, or the Reef View Hotel. We tried both, but preferred the Toucan Tango as it had a better outlook.
We had a most enjoyable time.

Unique Quality: The excellent beach and garden view from the balcony. A section of Palm Terraces extends inland and views of the beach are obstructed by the palm trees. When booking request a room which gives beach views.

Motel-style accommodation - a good budget choice

Palm Terraces area three-storey block that are just in the foreground of the picture on the main Hamilton Island page. The accommodation is in the 3 star range and is one of the cheaper options available on the resort. The rooms are spacious and comfortable - the one we were staying in had "his & hers: handbasins in the bathroom and lots of space for putting luggage etc. They also have balconies and you may get lucky and score a view, however some of them are obscured by the palm trees - not altogether a bad thing though!

Their aspect is East-facing which means that although you get the morning sun, there will not be fantastic opportunities to sit out on the balcony during the day as it got a bit cold in the shade when we were there.

All-in-all we decided that if it is your first trip and you have busy days planned out on tours, by the pool, bushwalking etc then you won't be spending much time in there anyway!!

Directions: At the Western end of the main beach, set in the hillside below the chapel on one-tree hill.
