Guest reviews for Palm Bungalows

Everyone (1)
5 out of 5

Comfy and ridiculously luxurious lifestyle

Pros: Cleanliness, cosiness and the hammock! Easy to book tours and activities at front desk
Cons: Expanding bungalow. Timeliness in transport facilities i.e shuttle was a little late.
Location: Small island, location close to everything. Things to do nearby: buggy rides, awesome beach, nice food both take away and eat in.
Solo stay for 2 nights, was not bored at all with lots of activities and a little nightlife. Bungalow was fabulous and something different - the hammock was awesome. Cleaning staff were considerate for personals and thoughtful for customers including weird habits. Would definitely stay here again and I can't wait till I get to.
