The last time I was here, I was swimming with dolphins at the main pool of the hotel. After so many years, it was wonderful to come back and see Hamilton Island again. This is not my first trip, oh no - this, like the Shangri-La Rasa Sayang in Penang (Malaysia) is my second home. A more local second home... More

Just spent a great week here during the school holidays. The hotel no longer seems dated or tired, it feels very fresh and bright and extremely we'll run. The staff were really helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. We were on the 13th floor with a beautiful view over the spectacular bay. Stacks of activities for children and... More

Upon arrival first impressions of the island and hotel resort were impressive but the hotel room on the 15th floor was mixed. Coral Sea room was very spacious but a little outdated, the four star rating is correct. Smoking is permitted on the balcony even though the rooms are non smoking. We were subject to second hand smoke from guests... More

We travelled as a party of 3 and were all astounded with Hamiltons natural beauty, there is a fantastic heaterd 34 metre pool, the breakfast is brilliant with a lovely friendly lady that makes whatever eggs you require ( she does a great florentine ). The building is pretty dated and you have to pay a bit more to get... More

The Reef View Hotel is on a beautiful island with great service and food. The room is spacious and the views are sensational. With a pool and restaurant right downstairs, easy swimming and a great breakfast are only minutes away. The breakfast is great, and it is free as well, a great meal for no cost. With the Wildlife Center... More

My cousin and I went to Hamilton Island at the end of our trip at the recommendation of our Allanah at Just Sydney Tours. She helped us plan so much of our trip, and every recommendation was perfect. The hotel meets you at the airport and puts all of your luggage on a carrier and then you are transported to... More

We walked into our room at the Reef View hotel and was greeted with a beautiful airy room with an expansive view of a sunny blue sky, sapphire ocean and mountains.

We had a memorable three night stay at the Reef View. The staff are very helpful and pleasant. Rooms are great with a huge bathroom giving bath and shower - separate toilet. Views are fantastic. With all the facilities provided at this resort it would be very difficult to find anything to complain about. The shuttle bus service makes it... More

We stayed here for four nights in June. The rooms were lovely and breakfasts probably the best hotel breakfast I've ever had but they are doing renovations to the roof of the foyer and our room was right next to it. This meant we experienced high levels of noise. We asked to move rooms which we were able to the... More
