We stayed with 2 kids(8 & 6) for 6 nights. Had a brilliant time. The Rooms were comfortable & clean. Staff were friendly. The Pool is the best one on the Island - clean, easy to keep an eye on the kids & has noodles to keep them entertained (& afloat!). Breakfast is part of the package which is a...

The hotel is located in the middle of the resort complex. It has a restaurant on the bottom level that doubles as breakfast buffet during the morning. You are a short stroll to nice pools and the breathtaking cats eye beach which is excellent for swimming, relaxing, snorkeling and water sports. Hotel patrons have free and unlimited use of non...

We had a great time at the reef. The room was spacious for two, had good amenities and a great view. It is a little tired in places, and I don't really like the tower block approach to hotels in locations like this but the views are amazing. The bathrooms do need an update. I would avoid the breakfast queue...

The Hotel is located a few meters walking distances to the beach. The Hotel and another one is I believe the only high rise hotel on the island. The beach has got noticeable low and high tide, basically good a few hours a day for swimming, the remaining time perhaps for snorkelling further out. Plenty of sting rays in the...

situated within a 100 yards of the beach, it is a bit surprising that planning permission was given for a tower block hotel, but having said that we were on the 15th floor and the view was amazing. Very spacious room and bathroom, and an excellent breakfast - although there is often a queue to get into breakfast it is...

A bit disappointed we booked a high rise hotel on Hamilton Island due to late travel (Jan 2015), but I couldn't have been more delighted. Airport to hotel easy 5 min drive.

Although the room was nice, staff friendly, our overall impression of Hamilton Island was that it was over priced for what it was. We hired a Charter boat and had an amazing time sailing around the islands,but i wouldn't bother going back to Hamilton Island.
