We stayed recently for 8 nights. Great size rooms good views, however skirting boards were dirty and the fan above the bed was thick with dust, but the location to beach was fantastic. We were unable to get a plot by the swimming pool for any of the time during our stay. The communal pool by the beach was adequate...

Just cancel if the weather is bad. We spent thousands and discovered that even though we wanted to use the paddle boards etc they were always closed or otherwise unavailable. The location is beautiful and hotel service is good. Breakfast buffet is $35 each (just an example).

I visited Hamilton Island from the 28th of November to the 4th of December. I was on Floor 8 and the view of the reef and meandering entry of the Ocean was spectacular. The rooms are a little old, but very clean and spacious with a lovely expansive view and balcony. I used a Luxury Escapes Voucher and was pleasantly...

The tone of our holiday was set with our collection from the airport by Kirsty, the Suite Concierge.She was always happy and smiling and happy to help in way she could during our stay. She gave us great advice & got us dinner reservations when we couldn't get any. Her service was exceptional ! All the staff at the Reef...

I dont have anything negative to say about our stay other than i wish it was longer. The island and endless activities kept my family entertained. The restaurants are superb and the buffet breakfast was one of the best i have had. 5 stars all the way.

Well that's a big call but as far as family holidays go Hamilton Island is awesome. It's so easy.... fly direct..... kids eat & stay free. Plenty to see, plenty to do. Don't go thinking it's a cheap holiday. You can certainly lay on the beach or relax by the pool which is free but some of the activities are...

The good stuff ... 1. The views from the upper floors are sensational - never tire of them (even though we got bad weather during our stay) 2. The rooms are big, beds comfortable (a REAL King bed, not two singles joined together), and the all the stuff you expect (mini fridge, tea/coffee, ...) 3. The staff was unfailingly helpful...

It never ceases to amaze me how diverse the comments about a hotel can be, however, we all go on holidays with individual agendas and expectations and sometimes we win, sometimes we lose. As can be seen below in the earlier comments, a number of folk have not liked this hotel; we on the other hand, have had a super...

Plus points: this hotel is in a lovely location and our rooms on the 8th floor were large and had great views. Also the staff are mostly smiley and helpful. But it is definitely a no-frills experience at 4* prices! The bathrooms are very plain and outdated and the whole building feels more like a huge hostel than a 4*...

The room was very large, but outdated, yet considering the remote location, acceptable. Our view was outstanding! The food at the hotel restaurants were good, not great. Except the Beach Club for dinner was a culinary delight. The staff was very young and inexperienced. Overall would have expected a better experience for the money.
