I'm so pleased we chose this hotel--it turned out to be everything we wanted and needed. Clean, beautiful view from our balcony, multiple restaurants to chose from onsite for days we were too tired to go anywhere, shops and activities all around us. Easy trip planning from staffed desks in the lobby. There was a hurricane during the first days...

We recently stayed 5 nights at the Reef View Hotel and were very happy with our choice of hotel. Free airport shuttle transfers and seamless check-in process (they have a check-in desk at the airport where our room was allocated) made our arrival easy. Check-in is usually at 2.00 pm. We arrived at 9.05 am and were in our room...

I stayed here for a night in transit between the Whitsunday Islands and Sydney. I was greeted by a bus at the ferry wharf and the team member assisted with the luggage and was quite friendly and provided an overview of Hamilton Island on the way to the hotel. Once we arrived at the Reef View we were greeted by...

Magnificent views from the balcony. Very tranquil... The hotel needs a bit of an upgrade but it's clean and the rooms are spacious. The check-in process can be a bit messy during peak times, but they try their best.

Just stayed for 2 nights. I hate to complain about such a beautiful location & hotel. But the concierge was the only helpful & kind staff. Everyone else was in informative & in efficient. Just assumed we knew about the resort, facilities, activities and extras. When we asked it all seemed a bit too hard or condescending. You get nicle...

I recently stayed at the Reef View hotel, and was impressed by its condition for an older hotel. The decor was quite modern. The room was very large, comfortable for 2, with a very large bathroom as well as plenty of storage space. The balcony was really relaxing gazing out into the aqua blue waters of the Whitsundays. There are...

We have just returned from 6 nights at the Reef View Hotel and have to say it was amazing, completely lived up to our expectations and more. On check in we were allocated a room on the 5th floor but had asked for a higher floor in our booking, so when we mentioned this, we were straightaway moved up to...

We stayed for 6 nights during November. The room and bathroom was spacious, easily accommodating 3 of us. Staff in the hotel were very friendly and helpful. Transfers to and from the hotel and airport were seamless. At times there was noise from neighbouring guests moving through the hallway, but this didn't last long. The proximity to Catseye Beach and...

Stayed here for 2 nights early this month and was very disappointed in this hotel after high hopes. The rooms are big with lovely views, but the windows are filthy and so is the bathroom. This is a very big concrete hotel which was not what I was expecting at all, it is cleaned by young men who would knock...

A fantastic week away in a beautiful part of the world. Perfect gateway to the Great Barrier Reef with charter companies offering fair prices for day visits or overnight stays should you have the flexibility. Highly recommend a helicopter ride over the reef if your budget allows it. The hotel overall was very good, a few people may feel intimidated...
