“Great stay. Loved the staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Had a great time with a girlfriend at the apartments. In particular, the staff were VERY friendly. Always had a great chat with Thomas, who was always happy to help with everything. Thanks to both him and Sonia for helping us out so much during our stay. :)

Weekend just passed, myself and 11 friends went to Hamilton Island for a 40th birthday, we stayed in the apartments and the experience of the whole weekend was just wonderful, everything from the room to the surroundings where just spot on. and the whole group of us could not believe how wonderful and friendly the staff on the whole island were, just fantastic and would not hesitate in recommending it.

My partner and I decided at the last minute to go away for 4 days. We had never been to Hamilton Island before so we choose that destination. We both absolutely loved it. it's a great holiday for everyone. It's very family orientated which is great. The Whitsunday Holiday apartments where great. staying in an apartment like that meant we could bring our own food which keeps the cost down. The only thing that was a bit of a shock was the cash bond we had to pay for the buggies, which is a big chunk of your spending money before you even start you holiday. Now we know we will be prepared. We will stay at the Whitsunday apartments again definitely. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Thanks for the wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have a fantastic view and a great breeze

The Whitsunday apartments are not the fanciest place to stay in Hamilton Island, but they are great, and we'll no doubt stay there again if we manage to come back one day.
Now I read all the negative reviews on this website, and apparently all this did was lower my expectations so far to the ground (after booking of course), that when we arrived, neither of us could believe how spacious the apartment was (we stayed on the 10th floor).
Now I know, it's an island, and everything is expensive. The apartments are one of the cheapest places for accommodation on the island, and while they're not brand new looking, they're certainly not tired and old as some other reviewers have suggested. I suppose reviewers who holiday or travel frequently might have more refined expectations, but given that we don't go on holidays very often, the apartments were all that we needed.
The good bits: Wonderful view, exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, as many beach and pool towels as we needed.
The not so good bits: At the time we visited, it was against the rules to turn off the air con (due to the humidity). Whilst it's always a lovely feeling to walk back into the room with the aircon already going, my partner did get a bit cold on occasion at nights. Ants were around quite quickly if any food was left out for too long.
Tips: Use coles online and order so the food is delivered the day you arrive (we saved plenty).
You don't need to hire a buggy to get around the island. There's a free bus that goes to the shops and back every 20 minutes, so sure, hire one for fun, but it's very easy to get around without one. Also, it's only a 15-20 minute walk to the shops anyway.
The bottom line: The Whitsunday apartments were great. Cheap and cheerful, with wonderful staff. Highly recommended. Unless you're a snob, in which case, just go to Qualia.

Room Tip: Don't be too fussed about paying a premium for a room with a view. There are several places arou...

This is our second time staying at the resort and for the second time we were not disappointment. Although an older style room, the facilities were good, while the staff could not be more helpful. The location of the resort meant that everything was within easy reach and the views from our balcony were fantastic.

Hamilton Island is beautiful and no wonder that 90% of the hotels have pretty high prices. This one though, has a honest rate for what it offers. When you see in their website that the Garden Room view has "lush garden view", it's true. We even were able to see the sea!
The staff is pretty straightforward and brief. Cutlery offered is not so good. Also, on the downside, they ask you to NOT turn the aircon off, because mould can grow in the walls and you can be charged for re-paint if that happens; well I think this is pretty bad for the environment, hey? But overall, as the cheapest option, I had a great time!

Room Tip: Garden view apartment West 303 - the cheapest option offered and it was alright.

My partner and my friend and her boyfriend booked a trip together early February to Hamilton Island for a week. It was the best holiday in my opinion; we spend most of our time relaxing by the swim up bar sipping cocktails at the pool on the other side of the resort. We also did some activities such as jet skiing and we took a speed boat cruise to chawkies island to do some snorkelling on the reef, then we stop of at another beautiful island to relax by the perfect white beach. And another day we just spend exploring the island on a golf buggy you can hire for about $80 a day. I love how organised everything was at this resort, when you step off the plane everything is looked after and check in was quick and easy and the activities desk was very helpful. The food at the restaurants were expensive but the quality and portion was good, one night we dined by the swim up poolside restaurant. We had a small issue, we waited over an hour for our food and when we asked about our order we were told our docket never printed to the kitchen, our meals were quickly rushed out and the meal was completely refunded and everybody was very apologetic, they defiantly turn use from detractors to advocates. But in conclusion the whole trip was great and I would love to go back, just some advice make sure you bring your own alcohol if your plain on drinking and be prepared to spend a lot of money, and also the wet season is our summer so we had a few showers but the weather was still warm.

Room Tip: double reef view room
