Please don't live here if you have any other choice. Very bad experience living here! They arranged us a room with broken drain system. As bathtub water overflows, it made our lower level bathroom leaking and out of power. After short fixing, next day, they accused us ruin their room on purpose and ask us pay fixing fee. More their...

The only bad thing I have to say about this island is I wish it wasn't so far from where I live!! There is nothing I could fault with this hotel or the island. The shuttle from the airport was perfect, plus they took care of all your luggage I didn't see it from the airport until I was in...

Checked in the hotel and got to our room. To my surprise on the bed were rose petals in the shape of a heart, bottle of champagne and candles and birthday card that the hotel had made up on my husbands request. The room was very clean and spacious, the bed was in the middle of the room and from...

Great views the higher the floor, neat and clean, big rooms. The hotel staff don't give you a second to answer the door before they walk in on you. Even if you said give me a minute. Other than that not a bad hotel.

The hotel seems an incongruous building for the setting a high rise on beautiful CatsEye beach, yet it feels at home here as the surrounds and service is so welcoming. Yes it's a bit dated n the rooms cud be more modern and upto date, but everything is very clean serviced daily and the rooms overlook the beach and Whitsunday...

The reef view hotel has set the standard for every other hotel in Australia. It's just phenomenal. We stayed on the 5th floor, had two queen beds and still tons of space - the bathroom is bigger than some hotel rooms! For two girls on work conference it was perfect. So close to everything, the beaches and pools and bars...

We stayed in a Reef View Suite on the 19th floor which was great, spacious, with a stunning view. The concierge private shuttle to and from the airport is a great addition and the service was fantastic. My only complaint is that some of the room's furnishings were a little tired. In particular, the blind in the bathroom didn't work...

Stayed here for 4 nights for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We had Coral Sea room on level 14 The view was amazing. I got up early every morning and sat out on the balcony with a book and a cup of tea and enjoyed the beauty with a few cockatoos. Room was large with two beds, two arm chairs...

This is great if your in house and need to get to your sessions and dinner venues quickly. I was a partner of one of the attendees and I would highly recommend you do your home work before you come for a holiday. There are plenty more places to stay besides this old darling. It will give you the bed...

Whilst this hotel isn't going to win any awards for architecture, it is a pleasant place to stay for a while. Our room was ready significantly before the published check in time, and all the staff from the front desk to the restaurant were always helpful and friendly.
