Can i just start with how sad & miserable some people's lives must be to make such negative, nit-picking comments in a public forum about an otherwise fantastic hotel & well trained staff.
After a wonderful 7 night anniversary holiday (or parole as i called it) on Hamilton Island staying at the ReefView we have nothing but praise for the cleanliness & quality of this hotel. From the sumptuous buffet breakfast to the lazy dinner stay-ins & ordering room service. Sure, the hotel is a little older, but is still very well maintained & cared for given its vintage - almost like a good red, better with age.
Please ignore the negative reviews, again, the narrow-mindedness of some sad individuals who obviously suck lemons for a living when holidaying & making their comments here obviously reflects what a tiny & pretentious bubble-like existence they lead. They should holiday at home in their backyard & live in a tent for a week - i bet they would still whinge about that as well.
Few tips, try for a higher floor. Hire a buggy from the airport upon arrival. Get to breakfast by 7am at the latest. Book a massage at Wumurdaylin spa days in advance. Have Chris make you cocktails at the Reef Lounge of a morning, afternoon & evening. Book a chopper flight to Reefworld to snorkel plus visit Whitehaven.
Special thanks to Emily on reception, the lovely ladies in the lobby shop & of course Matt.
See you again very soon
