Hamilton Island is relatively small and extremely easy to get around if you utitilise the free bus service that runs at least every 15mins. People get golf buggies for $85 a day but this just seemed like an expensive novelty, especially when most things are readily walkable.
The WhitSunday Apartments (WSA) are next door to the more expensive Reef View but it seems that you can share the majority of the facilities eg the various pools and the gym (for a fee). Catseye beach is opposite the hotel and is a beautiful beach. The hotel room was spacious, clean and comfortable - ROOM WITH A SEA VIEW IS A MUST, what a view to wake up to (see pictures). The only downside with the room was the faulty balcony door lock which resulted in myself and my girlfriend locking ourselves out on the balcony - fortunately out of hours came quickly (luckily I had my phone) and managed to let us back into the apartment - the only downside was that he climbed in through a closed, but not locked window, since the door had the latch on it. He told us to lock it when he left but we soon realised that the window couldn't be locked. Other than that the hotel apartment was good.
Going out to the outer Great Barrier Reef is an absolute must. All the other tours are good (kayaking, Whitehaven etcetera) but the outer barrier reef is the only one in my opinion that is just incredible.
I would stay here again.
