This place is just amazing. The location is breathtaking and the people, the facilities, and the food make it unforgettable. Starting with the arrival in Hamilton and the boat ride, we knew we were in for a great stay! Qantas lost our luggage on our way here and they couldn't be more accommodating. We didn't get our luggage until our...

My young family and I stayed at the new and improved One & Only Hayman Island Resort back in early November 2014 for 5 nights, and its been nearly 3 months since, and my wife and I still believe it is undoubtedly the Best Family holiday we've ever had. This is our 3rd stay over 8 years to the island...

We stayed at One and Only Hayman from 4-10 January 2015 and after reading some of the reviews on this site, I must confess that I was worried! But I needn't have been - it was exquisite. We stayed in the Pool Wing - overlooking the iconic Hayman Pool - in one of the gorgeous one bedroom suites. The suites...

We stayed at One and Only Hayman in September 2014. It was a special celebration for our mother's 70th birthday. We had 4 pool suites as there was 6 of us in total. Having previously visited Hayman, we thought having One and Only take over would only improve what was a wonderful experience on our prior visits. To say we...

The hotel had just been remodeled, reopened last July. The room is very comfortable, the new pool area looks really good and charming. There's enough room for all the guests. The beach is pretty good. The restaurants offered a pretty good variety of dishes for a 4-5 night stay. Our stay in January was eventful, unfortunately the service was very...

A great option for higher end families, something that is missing in Australia. The refurbishment is impressive and we had a good time just pre Christmas. Service as noted by other reviewers needs work, especially in the Breakfast restaurant for coffee service. Staff were all friendly, however many transient which is a reality in Australia these days unfortunately.
