Well I have a lot to say, but will make short and sweet. After reading so many posts of this place, I was a little perplexed in what to expect. We wanted to visit close to home this time around, after a busy year with work. I read heaps of posts on here, a lot were on housekeeping, food, staff,...

It was our first visit to Hamilton Island & we were very impressed. We had requested Ocean views from our Family suite & were very impressed & happy. 2 adjoining rooms with fantastic views. Rooms always clean & tidy as was the hotel. Wonderful food in the restaurant downstairs & great to have poolside waiter service for food & drinks....

There are several places you can stay on Hamilton Island from the resorts to the beach bungalows to the private villas. We stayed at at the Reef View Hotel. We had a lovely room with an amazing view of the Coral Sea and nearby Whitsunday Island. The hotel has a shuttle that can take you around to all the various...

At a whopping $550 per night for a Garden facing room on Level 3 at the end of December 2014 we were expecting something slightly better than a room with carpet squares and a mouldy (slightly gross) bathroom straight from the 1990s. I would describe the rooms as below average, lacking in any element of luxury yet priced like it....

It was our first time staying at the Reef View Hotel. We normally visit Hamilton Island every year, sometimes twice a year. We have stayed in a range of accomodation on the island and despite the very friendly reception staff, the RVH is probably ranked as our 4th preference.....if we had splurged for a bigger room with a nicer view,...

I was liking forward to sow ding a few days away with my family to forget about the rest - and I certainly did! Great service, helpful, attentive but not over the top.

The whole island is like a large beach resort, from when we stepped off the ferry until we caught a plane on the next part of our holiday, everything comfort has been thought about and catered for.

If one wants great experience on Hamilton Island, one should stay in Reef View Hotel. It offers amazing view, spacious rooms, delicious breakfast and great location. First, we were greeted ever so cheerfully by staff, which is in, my opinion, as happy to work in a tropical isle environment as we were happy to be guests in this beautiful resort....

While over 25 years old now the hotel is holding its own through great service, food, cleanliness and facilities. We just loved the gym and tennis courts - absolutely top notch. While pricey, the food was excellent. And the resort as a whole managed the peak Christmas crowds really well - we never really felt crowded or rushed. The resort...
