The 4-star Reef View Hotel on Hamilton Island does what it says on the tin. It looks out onto the reef at Catseye Bay where at low tide you can see living coral exposed and the occasional stingray lurking in the shallows. The hotel caters efficiently for large numbers of guests with a big heated swimming pool directly off the... More

The hotel is very dated, the bathroom wasn't very clean, it had mould in the grout and there was so much soap scum in the shower. The tiles were stained with a orange colour. Have no idea what it was, the bath still felt and looked dirty, and there was marks all over tiles. The chair had stains on it... More

Dear madimoore. Please accept my thanks for reviewing your recent stay here with us. Suffice to say, I was disappointed, as it appears we have missed the mark in a particular area during your stay.

Loved it. Large rooms.good bathroom. Great view. Good service. Perfect location. Nothing to complain about. Consistently happy with this hotel. Stayed in a pool view room that looked out over the water. Would have liked a stovetop but I guess you're supposed to eat at the restaurant. Awesome place. I do recommend.

Our group of 121 senior citizens spent a fabulous week in June in the Whitsundays staying at the Reef View Hotel. The service was outstanding. The buffet breakfast was great. The use of a buggy for two days for each room gave us the opportunity to explore Hamilton Island in detail. A Cruise Whitsundays Catamaran took us to Reef World... More

We were suggested this island by a travel agent who told us it was the best for families, but on arrival we found the staff across the island rude and unhelpful. Also once on the island you can only eat and stay at a few places as most places do not accept children! And all that is left are resturants... More

Spent a couple of nights here with husband and children aged 5 and 16. Really pleasantly surprised bey HUGE room and great bathroom. Decided not to pay extra $70 for sea view, so were delighted to see that we had a lovely partial sea view from the 4th floor - without paying extra. Food was OK, nothing too special, but... More

My sister and I had a great time away... The staff were helpful, the food was awesome and the rooms were so spacious!!! You couldn't ask for a better view to wake up to in the morning!!! Then there was the choice of three different places for Breakfast included in the package so it was great having the variety 😃

The view from our 12th floor room was fantastic, just like in the brochure. The breakfast was also a highlight. Normally I am not a fan of the buffet breakfast but this was an exception. We were ushered to a table by the pool each morning, asked if we wanted in the sun or shade and left to indulge. We... More
