On arrival we got upgraded to a room with a view which was amazing. Large room with a balcony, 2 double beds and a huge bathroom with a separate bath and shower. Only thing I can fault is they take your suitcases to your room for you, I would have preferred to take mine myself as we had to wait...

I don't usually write reviews but was just so happy with my experience at the Reef View that I felt it necessary. I purchased a Luxury Escape voucher in the thought of using it with my partner and our four month old as our very first family holiday! The resort is so accommodating to young families! They made our stay...

Came to Hamilton Island to relax and unwind after 7 weeks of travelling around Australia before returning home. Do not be put off by the outside of the hotel as you arrive built in the late 1990's it looks like a concrete jungle. Inside the room was large and spacious. The bathroom could of held a family of 4 it...

This is an odd mix. The ugliest hotel in the world in the most beautiful place in the world. It's a bit like Centreparcs with coconuts. If you want peace you can find it on the island but some hotel pools suffer rock music and lager. The main dining room does very well given the demand but the food is...

Reef View Hotel is a great place to stay and caters for couples, families, groups etc. The rooms are spacious and very clean and the views are spectacular looking over Catseye Beach. The cockatoos visiting on a daily basis is a treat for the kids (but do not feed them) and the staff are fantastic. Best to book as a...

We are a young couple who were celebrating our engagement & LOVED this place. The view is to die for, the room is great, very comfortable bed, fantastic service etc etc. Definitely get the buffet breakfast included - food on the island is SO expensive so at least that is one meal you don't have to think about. And if...

We stayed for four nights at the Reef View Hotel whilst visiting Australia from the UK. The hotel caters well for families, with a large canteen-style dining room next to the pool, that is perfect for kids. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the bathroom has a very good large shower separate to the bath. Breakfast is good, with...
