Recently stayed for one night. Very impressed with the nice staff. The pool is awesome but a bit crowded. View is amazing. Beds are very comfy and the room in general is amazing. Check in and out was fast. Only downside was that we had booked one bed to face the balcony and they ended up putting two beds side...

This hotel caters for everyone. Excellent buffet breakfast from 6am. Great coffee machine and plenty of fresh fruit and pastries. Omelette was well made too (chilli is a little too strong) or choose a freshly cooked egg made by the chef. Enjoyed lunch there with good salads. Loved the view from the 7th floor. Bird life is interesting so keep...

Staying at the reef view hotel was amazing would recommend sails steak & seafood grill if you have kids. Free hire at the beach hut is amazing and if you find escaping work difficult than Hamilton island is the place to be one tree hill is great for a cocktail.

Reef View is a lovely hotel, when you arrive at the airport your luggage is on trolleys outside and you get your luggage tags from that area, attach to your luggage and when you get to your room it's all there waiting for you. The room we had was 1002 really big room, two double beds large TV, full size...

Fabulous location, staff & rooms however ordering breakfast to our room was a nightmare! When our meal had not been delivered by 8:50am (ordered it for 8 to 8:30am) I rang & was told they had attempted to deliver it at 8am but I didn't answer (impossible). No further attempt to deliver the meal had been made! When the (semi...

We stayed for one night in a suite that was spread over the two top floors. It wasn't cheap but for a short-stay special weekend, we weren't disappointed. The VIP transfers to and from the airport were easy and convenient with the 'Suite Concierge', Rachel, being our driver in both directions. Rachel was a true professional and ensured we had...

We were lucky enough to be upgraded at this hotel, to a reef view room, for our wedding anniversary. The view from the balcony was spectacular! The room itself was very well appointed, with two double beds, ironing board and iron, hairdryer, etc. There were laundry facilities on several of the floors, with washing machines which were coin operated -...

Coming during Chinese new year was a HUGE mistake. We have stayed on the island 3 times now and chose the reef view from other trip advisors. The building is dated, the rooms are quite roomy, but we had a family reef room which I was told are all located next to the lifts (which during the day is very...

Hamilton Island is beautiful, and this hotel provided spacious and comfortable rooms. It's worth spending more to get a sea view as it's stunning. The service was excellent. Caters well for families with small children. Restaurants excellent and lots of choice. Choice of pools, swim up bar. Beautifully landscaped.

Recently stayed here for 3 nights with my boyfriend and had the most perfect time. We paid for an ocean view room which I think is the whole point of this high rise hotel to be honest as the view is unbelieveable. It is definitely worth doing as it is the best bit about the hotel!
