visit to Magnetic island

We came over from Townsville where we live for a two day break. We have been to the island before and love coming back,Usually we come over in our boat but this time decided to come over by ferry and bring our car to travel easier around the island, we stayed in a quiet area lovely rooms all that you need on a holiday ,close to the beach great walking tracks.

Great family escape

From the moment I checked in I felt welcome. The staff throughout our stay were friendly and happy to impart their Island knowledge. The apartment was spotless, and extra beds were placed in there for us to work out sleeping arrangements- I was traveling with my mother and 3 children. One room had a queen bed, the other two singles. Both rooms had bathrooms attached. The second room was large enough to set up the two rollaway beds comfortably. Located across from the beach, a 2 minute walk to a grocery store, and short walk to Ferry. You have the access to all your needs while being in a quieter location. We stayed 6 nights .

very friendly and helpful staff

The staff of Island Palms Resort couldn't have been more helpful--from checking in to checking out. Any question or problem we had was cheerfully and quickly resolved. The extra items / services they offer (eg, picnic basket & rug) free of charge is a testimony to their exceptional level of hospitality.

Very good, quiet location

Pros: Location
Cons: As with a lot of places on Maggie Island, a tiny spot of food and ants will swarm. But not a huge problem as long as you're diligent.
Location: Shops a two min walk away. Bus stop at corner to take all over island. Beach front on door step.
Stayed for our annual end of year weekend getaway because our regular spot at Arcadia was booked out. I guess it was meant to be because now we have a new regular spot. Nice location for walks along the beach. Close to shops and bottle-o. Bus just around corner to take all around the island. Unfortunately didn't try the pool but looked good and felt heated. Friendly and helpful staff who let us relax at the pool while our room was being serviced (we were too early at check in). Overall, worthwhile and yes, we'll be coming back - I think it was a blessing in disguise that our regular spot was booked out.
