Great hotel that offers good accommodation for families . The island allows you to eat in various restaurants but would recommend here for the buffet breakfast . Only disadvantage the cockatoos tend to settle on the balconies so be vigilant and keep the patio doors closed otherwise you may get an extra guest or two !

The perfect place to base yourself for a relaxing island getaway. I simply can not fault one facet of my stay. Service is impeccable, from check-in and check-out to concierge and restaurant staff. Professional, courteous and helpful. The view from the 16th floor is absolutely breathtaking. The first word I said when I walked into my room was, "Wow", and...

Whilst the hotel has clearly been around for some time, it looks as if it is recently refurbished, mostly well. Check-in (by "Jake") was exceptionally efficient, and the whole service from airport to room was excellent, with us and our bags looked after really well. Room was really good - large with large bathroom, and panoramic view of Catseye Bay...

From the time we stepped off of the plane we were impressed with the staff and service at the resort. William, Concierge, was there to greet us and took exceptional care of our bags, transfer and check in. This is a large resort with lots of dining and activity options so plan to stay at least 4 days. Rent a...

We love Hamilton island Reef View Hotel but really don't like their beds. We have stayed at Hamilton island Reef View Hotel twice as a family and find the beds really old, hard and VERY uncomfortable. I think they are the original beds and they need to replace them. Will we go back? Perhaps it's time to try somewhere else.

The gardens are beautifuly tropical with Parakeets and Lorakeets in the trees. The location is good and buggies can be hired at the hotel to use to travel around the Island as it is car free.

Good - Coral Sea View room, great view, large room and large bathroom, close to Catseye beach. Parts of room a little sad but reasonable for price. Buffet breakfast excellent.

What a gorgeous island and wonderful hotel. Reef View is in a great location - across the road from the beach however the panoramic views of the whitsundays waking up each morning was simply stunning. I recommend the higher the level, the better as the views of the entire bay will be much better (eg level 12 and up). All...
