Excellent family interconnecting suite with amazing beach views. Great restaurant in the hotel and complimentary breakfast had a wide variety of continental and cooked options. Facilities for the children were good, lots of choice of swimming pools and close access to the beach with free hire of kayaks etc. Quick and efficient airport transfer and our room was ready 2...

We spent four nights at the Reef View and found all aspects of the hotel about a 7 out of 10. Its a 1990's building in a seaside location, it is clearly being subject to regular maintenance, we found all aspects to be in good order. Our room was clean mostly however a few areas were dirty such as around...

We had 4 nights booked in for a water view room from 11-15 July. The view from our room was incredible, and transfer from the airport was seamless. My wife and I had a sudden death in our family and we had to go home only 2 nights into our stay. The Reef View Hotel should be commended on their...

You cannot beat the Reef View Hotel for location, value, the extras and above all customers service. Yes, the rooms and bathrooms are getting a little tired and worn, but everything else makes up for it. A personal note and bottle of wine from the manager to celebrate a special occasion was definitely not expected but very welcomed. Unfortunately the...

Beautiful view but very old. Badly needs updating. They say they have a no smoking policy but allow smoking on the balcony. There are very few days here where you don't need to open the door for fresh air, unfortunately as smoking is allowed on the balcony, we had to put up with cigarette smoke the whole time coming into...

Fantastic views from the spacious balcony. Room was comfortable and good size for a family. Bathrooms in need of an upgrade but large and functional. Restaurant was one of the better on the island and service throughout the hotel was excellent.

Stayed at this hotel with two young kids (from 16 July to 19th July 2015), found staff very friendly, very clean rooms. Our room was quite close to lifts and as such could hear them (only negative), had kids eat free offer (can be used at other places which was clearly stated), plus breakfast.

We stayed for 4 nights from 1st April (Easter weekend) in room 717 on the 7th floor. The room large and spacious (2 queen size beds) with the most amazing view from the balcony (definitely stay above floor 4 for the views). The bathroom was large, but could do with a little tidy up. There was a fridge in the...

We recently stayed at the reef view hotel for a week over the July school holidays! From arriving in Hamilton Island to sadly leaving a week later everything ran like clock work (you can tell this is a clearly a major tourist destination and they have everything organised to a tee!). Included in the accommodation price is airport transfers. After...

Hamilton Island is as close to paradise that you will ever find, everyone is super friendly, the island has some great reefs, a beautiful harbour and really good facility's, the island also has a small zoo and really good restaurants. Although a small island you could quite easily spend eight to ten nights, it really is paradise. The Reef View...
