We spent 4 days on Hamilton Island as part of a two week trip to Australia visiting relatives in Sydney. We wanted to see the Great Barrier Reef & go for a bit of hotel luxury. Tourism on Hamilton Island is like a 1970's 'Disneyland/Butlins' resort. As you arrive at the small airport, you are greeted by a man with...

We visited Hamilton Island for the first time with our two children aged 5 and 9 over the Easter weekend for 5 nights. We stayed at the Reef View Hotel. We had a room facing the water on the 8th floor. I could never tire of that view! Every day the view was changing and magnificent! The hotel is nice....

We're family with 2 kids 5&3yo stayed in level 7 room 701 at the very corner with a beautiful ocean view from the balcony and at the back our room we can see a beautiful garden view, tennis court and mini golf. The room was bigger than I expected and it's good for my energetic kids. The bathroom completed with...

My husband and I went up for the long Easter weekend. I was the peak of the busy season but we still really enjoyed it! The hotel offers water sports during different parts of the day. We went out at 8:30 (when it opened) to ensure a paddle board. I think this is only necessary when it is so busy....

Although initially skeptical of staying at such a large hotel (we had planned to stay at Beach Club but it was closed for renovations), we easily settled into our corner room on the 19th floor. Our view was amazing and clearly made up for any misgivings I had about the hotel's size. The room itself was very roomy and nicely...

Beautiful location, excellent accommodation. Staff were very helpful and eager to please. My only criticism would be the dining menu. Same for lunch and dinner. Needs more variety. Apart from that and the rather slow wi-fi, we had no complaints

Was on the island for an Indian wedding, so the Reef View Hotel was already booked for us, having read the reviews before travelling I was a little apprehensive, even though I could see that they were generally good. Anyway, having now stayed here, I can't really fault the place, we had a room on the 17th floor so the...

Overall, the stay was satisfactory, and a tad pricey for a 4 -star hotel . We did have a few issues when housekeeping did not provide enough linen/towels or did not provide any toiletries after making up the room, but this was resolved after speaking to reception. I initially asked for 2 separate queen beds on my booking but was...
