"great hotel, free waterspouts provided"
amazing picture perfect views, great people and place, a must do holidayGenuine Expedia guest review
Excellent position with amazing views of the ocean and surrounds. Fabulous music in the bar area during our stayGenuine Expedia guest review
We booked the trip as a last minute honeymoon and we were very happy with our stay at Reef View. The hotel was clean and the air con worked really well (which was lovely in the humid afternoons). The hotel has all of the facilities that you will need for your stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice clean hotel"
Nice and clean, but doesn't provide normal toiletries other hotels do (eg. Toothbrush, toothpaste, hair dryer) They do provide a beach towel daily though, and curtains keep the light out pretty well. Perfect for those wanting to sleep till noon or want arvo naps after lunch :) If only they could be more flexible with checkout times.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay"
Television sound poorGenuine Expedia guest review
"Stunning views, close to beach and choice of pools"
We had a sea view room overlooking Catseye Beach, what a stunning view to wake up to every morning. The room was clean & well laid out with a bathroom that included a nice deep bath, perfect for a relaxing soak. We found all staff to be friendly and only too happy to assist during our stay. The hotel is perfectly located near the beach, with a choice […] of pools and dining nearby. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I recently stayed at the Reef View and was not disappointed. Very comfortable and great location. We had breakfast lunch and dinner there and again food was great. But the views from our balcony were amazing overlooking the ocean. WOW!!!! I couldve just stayed there all day. A great couples and family spot. Highly recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very large hotel"
The Reef View Hotel certainly appears tired, needing a face lift to upgrade the rooms & common parts giving the hotel some identity & sense of occasion. Bland is another word I'd use. It's proximity to the beach is good & the views from the higher floors tremendous. The bedrooms & bathrooms are spacious & clean but dull. The dining area is like a cafeteria […] & the pool side crowded with families. The hotel is functional but lacks aspiration, I would not recommend it for a romantic getaway!

We had the most wonderful experience on Hamilton Island staying at the Reef View Hotel. Everything was effortless from check-in to check-out. We had a choice of 3 Restaurants for the buffet breakfast included in our deal. The poolside and Sails Restaurants we fantastic. The rooms were clean and the house keeping staff were friendly and supplied us with […] more toiletries when required promptly. There was a selection of pools to choose from. Snorkelling at Catseye Beach was great a low tide. We even swam with turtles!!! There is a selection of beach sporting equipment to keep you active and this is included in the price when staying at the Reef View Hotel Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful View and Hotel Room"
It was our 25th wedding anniversary and both staff at expedia and Reef View could not have been more helpful to us in planning this holiday. The hotel room was wonderful, the manager gave us a surprise upgrade and we loved the room with ocean view with Champagne to celebrate Checking in was fast and efficient. Thank you for a very memorable holiday!!!! […] Truly loved every moment did not want to leave. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I stayed at this hotel in October and we were upgraded to a coral sea view room on level 9. However, I believe most of the levels have a view of the sea. The rooms and bathrooms were very large. The patio was quite pleasant to sit out on also, except for the smokers next door. They should not allow smoking on the patios as it annoys non-smokers trying […] to enjoy the fresh air. The location to the beach was perfect, and being able to enjoy 4 pools around the resort area made this a very nice place to stay. Also having a choice of 3 places for breakfast was a nice added value. ALL the staff we came into contact with were very pleasant and helpful! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
What an amazing experience. Everything from the staff to the weather was perfect. The day trip to the barrier reef was breathtaking. Can't wait to go again!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, convenient to beach and activities"
Fantastic spot, great staff and very well set up. The Hotel had a fantastic pool/lounge and some great bars. At times it was tempting just to stay there and not leave the HotelGenuine Expedia guest review
Within easy walking distance to restaurants, shops and transportGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great views, close to beach, friendly staff."
Wonderful experiences such as Reef World snorkelling and helicopter ride, buggy hire, cuddling a koala, relaxing by the pool and beach. A very beautiful part of the world.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable Hotel, easy access to everything."
Fantastic long weekend stay. Excellent restaurants but needed to book well ahead to get a place for dinner. Resort activities were we'll organised particularly the reef trip. The opportunity to do a beginner scuba dive was well worth it. Great place for a family holiday, something for everyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Springtime at Reef View"
Enjoyed staying at Reef View hotel, sea view 11th floor room had magnificent views, lovely balcony, spacious room & bathroom. Close to good food (restaurants & room service), free shuttle buses around the resort stop at the door, access to multiple lovely pools, short walk to the beach. Being a large resort island everything is slightly more pricey, […] but all well organised & certainly good quality food & venues makes the relaxed holiday part very easy.

"Ok for families, better for corporate bookings"
With two small children, a desire to get some sunshine and escape the rat race, coupled with a small window of opportunity to actually get away, we were just happy to go anywhere that would take us. The island (and the direct flight) was the draw card, not the hotel but it was pleasant enough. The staff were friendly, breakfasts good and the kids eat […] free promotion was great as was proximity to the beach. The cons - the other meals at the hotel were overpriced and very average (better dining options elsewhere), the shuttle bus is good but not great if you have a pram (no need to use the gym after constantly pushing the pram up the hill from the marina) and aesthetically the hotel looked like it had come straight from 1980's Hawaii. No eco-friendly, blend in with the landscape architecture here. I'd also recommend the 'Family Rooms' if you have kids. It was Race Week when we were there which was good if you were just a 'normal' tourist as the activities were quiet, however the vibe was chaotic at times as it felt like everyone was an event manager or there for 'work'.

"Beautiful views and a gorgeous room full of light!"
We purchased a 'garden view room' but could still see (and hear) the ocean, it was fantastic!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Great holiday and great place to stay. Everything was so easy from the minute to we stepped off the plane, our transfers, check in by the time we got to the room our bags were already waiting for us. Lovely friendly accommodating staff. We would love to come back the views are amazing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Reef View Hotel Hamilton Island....Coral Sea View"
View from room spectacular. King size bed faced the window. Wonderful view to wake up to. Even had whales in the bay which made it even more special. Very good breakfast with full range of items. Cleaning.....fresh towels and linen, topped up supplies etc....but toilet was never cleaned? ... room never vac the whole week we were there nor the balcony […] was swept. Think that is the only concern I had about the hotel otherwise it was a great stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The breakfast at the hotel was really not the one of a 4 stars hotel! Hopefully we could have it at the Sails, which I warmly recommend! Worst of all was being woken up at 7.30 by the cleaning staf and being called a gay couple: I was travelling with my twenty-year-old daughter!!! It was a total rip off! So disappointed!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"July 2013 stay"
The room was very comfortable and decently cleaned, staff was polite and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Reef view was great"
The staff at the hotel couldn't be nicer, they called on the 2nd day of our stay to ensure we were happy w everything. The sports club, busses and even the activities on the beach were free which was an extra bonus. Even the locations for breakfast were great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"beautiful island friendly hotel"
Fantastic holiday, beautiful location, hotel lovely, could do with being upgraded in some areas. But overall just brilliant!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel dated, ugly and huge, would do it differently next time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location close to everything"
Pro's: -good view from balcony -clean room -staff were extremely friendly and kind -enjoyed the buffet breakfast -the chair on the balcony was very comfy Con's: -could hear the guests above us in their room -Very little vegetarian options on menu -the door knobs on shower and all the cupboards are stupid can barely get a grip on them -too many families […] with small children were occupying the surrounding rooms we were in (could hear children jumping and screaming from their rooms) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"We will definitely be back"
This is a very well run hotel. We loved that it catered so well for families without it feeling to much like it was a family hotel. The room was large and very comfortable. We loved Hamilton Island and the choices available to us.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel, friendly staff"
Service of the staff was excellent. Spacious room and bathroom. The rooms could have been cleaner. Quite a bit of dust; made us sneeze. Nice to have a perfect breakfast next to the pool! The hotel definitely isn't the prettiest building on the island, but from the inside it's ok and you do have a nice view. In terms of value for money, I am not too […] excited, but if you like to stay on Hamilton Island, it certainly is a good place. Not sure if it was due to low season or quiet neighbours, but in the room we couldn't really notice we were in such a big hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"fantastic island, nice hotel room"
the hotel especially the sea view room is quite nice. I stayed there for 5 nights while in my point of view, 3 days is fine, you can spent more time to explore other islands such as witsandy/hook/long island or hayman island.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Just Enjoy the beauty"
Nice sights. Huge balcony, good bathroom .. just perfectGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great overall hotel"
Nice clean hotel with big size room and a nice view of the ocean. Cool elevators although a microwave in the room would have been nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A Pleasent Experience"
Hotel was very clean and the room had superb views. Large balcony was a great asset. Dimmable downlights were a great help. Bathroom was huge and had x2 vanity sinks. Easy to get ready quickly. Shower was awesome. Reception desk and Activity desk staff were friendly and helpful TV system is a bit crooked and Video Quality is not that great. To use […] the Wi-fi you have to turn on the TV. Also the wireless range was limited to the living area and did notwork in the bathroom. Overall I would certainly recommend this to everyone Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"reef view fun"
Very helpful and pleasant staff. Great view and excellent shuttle service. Very easy to book activities . Would be nice if breakfast was included.Genuine Expedia guest review
My husband and I really enjoyed our whole stay on Hamilton Island, but were very impressed with the Reef View Hotel and staff. The cleanliness of the hotel and excellent condition of the lush surrounding grounds were excellent. The view over the Coral Sea was splendid and provided a wonderful relaxing atmosphere. The staff were professional and friendly […] - nothing was too much trouble. Before our arrival we were a little concerned as we read a couple of negative reviews of the Reef View - however, this was definately NOT our experience. We will come back again and again - Helen and Michael O'Reilly Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
First trip to Hamilton Island and Reef view made it magic! We got a king room on the 13th floor that overlooked the ocean, it was breath taking to wake up to that view every morning. Staff were most professional and friendly, a complementary bottle of champ we received on arrival because it was my partner's birthday. The hotel is central to just about […] everything. The only negatives - the buffet breakfast is extremely expensive ($34 pp come on!) and all the beach activities such as catermarans, kayaking etc were free to hotel guests as well as the gym in the sports club which we learnt this on the morning of our departure date.

"Great family break."
We stayed in a room with two queen beds (family of four). The room was great, the views even better. Fully recommended! Breakfast is very expensive though, even with kids eating for free.Genuine Expedia guest review
"PARADISE IN AUSTRALIA"
The hotel was modern and classy and the staff were very courteous and helpful. The service at the concierge and booking desk was excellent and they couldn't go out of their way to be helpful. The room was very spacious and well furnished and the balcony had an excellent view of Catseye Beach. The location to the Sports Club, Resort Centre and Marina […] was good as it was not too far to walk and there was always a shuttle bus available. Also enjoyed the buffet breakfast and dinners in the Terrace Pool Restaurant overlooking the pool and I would have no hesitation in recommending the Reef View Hotel and intend staying there on our next holiday to Hamilton Island.

"More for families"
Definitely a family hotel. Was a bit disappointeed by staff service, especially at downstairs bar. Which is perhaps why the downstairs bar was always empty. But the rooms were very clean and we had a nice view and plenty of activities to keep us busy.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Reef View Hotel Hi Traveller, I'm sorry to hear that you weren't impressed with the service from the downstairs bar - they are usually very good. I will drop by today and check with them to see if everything is ok. I'm glad that your actual room and the activities on Hamilton Island were to your liking. I hope you're able to come back and stay with us again soon. Warm Regards Matt Boileau General Manager Reef View Hotel & Palm Bungalows
This hotel had good facilities, staff were great and the room had a great view of the beach. Great selection for buffet breakfast. We did have housekeeping wake us up though at 8am on a Saturday, but otherwise the rest of our holiday and stay at reef view hotel was a great experience and would definitely come back.Genuine Expedia guest review

I’m glad to hear that you had such a wonderful holiday on Hamilton Island and my staff and I hope that you are able to visit us again soon. Warmest Regards, Matt Boileau General Manager Reef View Hotel & Palm Bungalows
The Reef view is a great hotel on Hamilton Island. Do not go for the garden view spend the extra and opt for the reef view it is so worth it. Breakfast is a bit pricey, but this is Hamilton Island so nothing is "cheap"Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Reef View Hotel Hi A traveler (GB), Thank you for taking the time to review Reef View Hotel. I’m glad that you had a good holiday and you enjoyed staying with us. You might be interested to know that guests spending 4 or more nights with us receive complimentary breakfast during their stay. These guests are able to choose between the huge buffet breakfast at Reef View, breakfast at Sails restaurant in the Marina or breakfast with the animals in the wildlife park. Warmest Regards, Matt Boileau General Manager Reef View Hotel & Palm Bungalows
This hotel was great. The view from the room was amazing and the rooms were simply great. I would definitely recommend this hotel. I had such a relaxing week. The only problem I found with it was the limitation of places to go to in the island. There are barely 4 or 5 restaurants that are quite overpriced and as for nightlife it is very limited. This […] place would be more for couples and families. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Fantastic!!! Room was comfortable, large and modern. Breakfast was amazing and the staff are super freindly. Will be coming back for sure!!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Well placed to access all the best areas"
Lovely hotel in a fantastic resort. The island is a paradise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We asked to move rooms as the room next to the lifts was very noisy at night. This request was met without fuss and we were given another room. Staff always courteous and friendly. Very relaxed holiday vibe throughout the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Overpriced and Below Standard"
Very disappointed in the Hotel, and definitely do not think that it deserves it's 4-star status. Facilities were well below par and overall the Hotel looks old and tired - peeling paint, stained carpet, torn curtains, stained bed linen......and the list goes on. Our room was given a very quick 'once over' by housekeeping each day and cleanliness of […] the common areas - especially the toilets - was disgusting. Food was very ordinary. Product knowledge of the majority of frontline F&B staff was poor, and they screamed inexperience. Overall, the Hotel is overpriced for what is delivered. We wouldn't return and we definitely wouldn't recommend it to others. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"beautiful relaxing Hammo."
smooth, amazing hotel, I travel a lot for work and it was the little things that made this such a pleasure. The staff were relaxed, friendly and helpful. The hotel was beautiful and the staff did not display the usual intimidating nature of a large hotel. The selection of breakfast venues was a pleasant surprise and to eat in the Koala sanctuary with […] my daughter was a special morning indeed. And on the second morning we ate in the hotel. The food in both venues was both fresh and interesting and suited even my most fussy eater. The dinner buffet in the hotel was awe inspiring, I will I had the capacity to eat more as I really wanted to try most of the food. But settled instead on the favorite of most travellers - the King Prawns. Fresh and delicious. Sitting by the pool in the restaurant, with the lights adorning the pool gave a magical atmosphere with staff that were efficient and friendly. I really would love to go again to the facility, But this time I would pack more clothes. I think my swimmer and shorts didn't stack up to the dressier night time activities that were planned. But we did go to relax by the pool, and this is exactly what we did, and did very successfully, As a short note, airport transfers, check in and check out were the simplest I have ever come across. So Easy.. just relax and enjoy the beauty of Hamilton. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
