Practically a fine but not special hotel - except the sea view which is amazing. Wouldn't stay again but was ok for a few days but would definitely come back to the island. Good Location is easy to get to marina and tours. Majority of people stay and they have excellent system for airport transfers - a bit like hurding...

My wife and I recently spent our honeymoon in the Coral Sea View Room (17th floor). We really love it. The hotel staffs decorated our bed with rose petals (fake ones) and wrote us a lovely note. We really love our room because it has a beautiful sea view from our balcony. Occasionally we were visited by cockatoos. We love...

We were meeting my son and his girlfriend here who live in Sydney and this was the last leg of our journey. I booked it for us all as I thought it would be really special and select. So Wrong!! We arrived to find the resort, indeed the whole of Hamilton island was teeming with people and children.. We couldnt...

This review is really hard to write. Many things were wonderful and others clearly missed the mark. Upon arriving at Hamilton Island, the Reef View Hotel (part of the Hamilton Island Resort) met us at the airport with a little bus to take us to the hotel. There are virtually no cars on the island, only buses, golf cart type...

I love to travel within Australia. It's less stressful. No change of currency or language and no airport dramas, but I do find that the quality of Australian service often leaves a lot to be desired (please don't refer to my partner and I as 'youse' and can you at least pretend to be interested in your job?). It was...

Our family ( including one x 5 yo and one x 8yo), recently returned from 10 nights here. We stayed on the 12th floor and the view was simply stunning! Believe it - you just can't help but marvel at it every time you open the curtains. The rooms are large and well appointed, but they are definitely tired. The...

Great hotel that offers good accommodation for families . The island allows you to eat in various restaurants but would recommend here for the buffet breakfast . Only disadvantage the cockatoos tend to settle on the balconies so be vigilant and keep the patio doors closed otherwise you may get an extra guest or two !

The perfect place to base yourself for a relaxing island getaway. I simply can not fault one facet of my stay. Service is impeccable, from check-in and check-out to concierge and restaurant staff. Professional, courteous and helpful. The view from the 16th floor is absolutely breathtaking. The first word I said when I walked into my room was, "Wow", and...

Whilst the hotel has clearly been around for some time, it looks as if it is recently refurbished, mostly well. Check-in (by "Jake") was exceptionally efficient, and the whole service from airport to room was excellent, with us and our bags looked after really well. Room was really good - large with large bathroom, and panoramic view of Catseye Bay...
