Great Facilities & Water Sports Staff..
Great Location & Awesome views of Cats Eye Bay, however where this hotel lacks.. it is in desperate need of a massive refurbishment as its over priced & felt like I was paying 5 Star prices for a 3 Star quality hotel. The best features of the hotel are facilities free Wi-Fi in all rooms, the fitness center, the recreation centre, the restaurants & free water sports amenities. The most annoying thing about the hotel is the noisy trolleys on each floor very early in the morning going up & down outside your door forget a nice quite sleep in.. The male hotel reception staff however we also very ordinary & disinterested in being accommodating but the other staff around the hotel were great especially the water sports team & specifically Ben he was very helpful, a very switched on guy and very knowledgeable about the facilities & the island including restaurants etc. Great Work Ben.. Keep it Up..

Could have been more value for money
The hotel stay was awesome but the price to pay was on the high side. When I was there it rained the entire time and there was nothing to do in the hotel nor on the island. It was a disappointing trip. The hotel could provide more activities for wet weather. To conclude, do not visit Hamilton island in April! Nonetheless, the hotel was comfortable and the swimming pool was great.

over priced ...great views though..
view from high floors that are bay facing
Clearly over priced because of its views..however I am sure there are many other lesser known locations that have equally great or better views.. We paid 800Aud + w/out breakfast per night for a family room..low value for money..room upkeep is average ...mostly calls to concierge or reception go unanswered for 10-20 rings !!..airport pkup and drop service is efficient with cheerful staff demeanor ...cant say the same for f&b lounge breakfast outlet though..

Four days in paradise...
View, Location and pools...
Loved our time at Reef View. Perfect spot for anyone who loves a tropical getaway... Our room, on 18th floor, had the most stunning views! Free buses, easy walk to everywhere, buggy if you want to get there faster, pools aplenty, good restaurants, beautiful clear water 200m from the door..... We will be back!
