The Reef View is nice, but the rooms desperately need a refresh/renovation. The rooms are clean, but I found the bathroom in particular, a bit grimy. The grout on the floor & shower is dirty & old. The corners are old & dirty. For most, it may not be a big deal, but it just shows the need for an... More

The views were lovely (we were on level 14) but we were a bit disappointed when the bag boys broke the handle on my luggage and smashed the padlock so that it wouldn't open. We ended up having to completely break the padlock just to get into my bag (we didn't receive any apology or even any recognition that they... More

Hamilton Island provides the ultimate industrialised ‘tropical paradise’ international resort experience. You could in fact be anywhere – Hawaii, Caribbean, Bali, Kenya. But that’s hardly a criticism; what they do they do extraordinarily well, for honeymooning Asians to pensioner-travellers alike. There are lots of things to do and all the usual up-sells of boat trips, golf, buggy rental etc.; and... More

Just spent a relaxing 5 nights on Hamilton Island at the Reef View Hotel. Although it's not the most modern of accommodation it has everything you need. Lovely large rooms with views to die for, really quite breathtaking. Breakfast each morning had lots of variety and there are many pools on the Island that you can use no matter where... More

We travelled to Hamilton Island with our two young boys having not been there in 10 years since our honeymoon. The place hasn't changed, in a good way. Still very relaxing. Our experience this time with a young family was different but equally great. We were there during school holidays and there was heaps organised for the kids to do... More

We spent 2 nights at the Reef View Hotel for a work trip and it was absolutely amazing! The rooms were very spacious and had stunning views of Catseye Beach, which was a short 1 minute walk from the hotel. The bathrooms were massive and very modern. The staff at this hotel were fantastic always friendly and willing to help.... More

Clean room, good facilities and access to sports club. Staff is very polite and attentive. Prices are moderate. We only had room service (pasta and a burger) which didn't wow us but did its deed. The island has lot of great outdoor activities and we definitely recommend the sunset kayaking! Definitely coming back to this beautiful island :)

Just a one night stay but great service. Nice clean comfortable large rooms with nice linen. The sulphur crested cockatoos on the balcony just made sure you didn't forget you were on hammo. Just a reminder how beautiful the whitsundays are. Great view from every room.
