"Nice but outdated"
the hotel was ok. clean and tidy. it did seem a bit out dated. it definatly needs a good paint job and carpet work in particular in the lobby bar area. As for the room ill give it 4/5 stars. everything was clean and in good nick apart from the bathroom. the coral sea view room was definatly worth the money.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent hotel close to bwach and pools."
Fab time had by all. We have a two year old and the proximity of the beach and pools was fantastic. Hotel facilities coyld not be faulted. Would recommend paying for breakfast as part of your stay....it was very good and ideal for adults and toddlers alike!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Rooms with Coral Sea view have a fab view."
Hotel is a little bit shabby - bit tired on the decor and the bathroom. The view was fantastic as we had booked a Coral Sea view room. The room was next to the lifts, which were a bit noisy. The restaurant was a little disappointing as it was a buffet for evening dinner every night - it was Easter holidays.Genuine Expedia guest review
Not enough pool lounges & only sloppy buffet for dinner. Foreign hairs in bathroom, floors never cleaned. Nice selection for breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel that is close to beach and amenities"
I stayed at the Reef View Hotel for 8 nights and during the very busy Easter period. The hotel staff were excellent, right from being picked up at the airport, check in, activities, room service, restaurant etc. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The pool side restaurant was offering buffet breakfast and dinner, both were delicious! The only small […] complaint I had was the cleanliness of the bathroom. I really don't like other peoples hair left in the bathroom and this happened everyday I stayed at the hotel. Otherwise the room servicing was fine. There is a great range of activities available from swimming in the pool to mini golf. All in all a good place to stay while at Hamilton Island. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Piece of paradise in Australia"
We had a truly amazing experience both on our resort and around the island, most staff are extremely accommodating and would go to great lengths to help however the waiter/bar were a bit slow with service both beside the pool and in the dining. They were Still so friendly so maybe just understaffedGenuine Expedia guest review
Friendly staff, perfect facilities for great holiday. Planning the next trip here for sure!!Genuine Expedia guest review
The rooms were spacious and the beds exceptionally comfortable. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful. We would strongly recommend this hotel and its facilities to our friends.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is an amazing island, all under one resort so you can charge to your room wherever you go, also on some of the tours to Whitsundays. Tour desk is very helpful. We stayed at the Coral View room and it was stunning, you can hear the waves. All in all - a must visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was great, location was perfect. The hotel staff friendly and the whole holiday was amazing.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great family holiday despite Cyclone Dylan!"
Great rooms, great views and despite the cyclone, we felt relaxed and happy. Staff were capable and communication good during crisis. Only negative was smoking being allowed on balconies on non smoking floors and blowing into our room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Well Organised and Good Service"
We are a small family of 3. One 15 year old and the two 50's. Reefview was convenient, well serviced, good breakfasts,and well maintained. You've got to watch the cockatoos on the balcony. We left the door partly ajar to keep fresh air in the room and the buggers got in and raided our snacks!!! But.... Roomservice discovered the issue and if it wasn't […] for the message on the TV advising us what happened - and the fact that we had no snacks for an evening drink - we wouldn't have known. The staff were friendly and cheery. Our 5 nights were well spent. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Reefview is great for families"
Staff at the Reefview hotel were very polite and helpful. They made our stay a very relaxed and pleasant experience.....loved it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"We had a wonderful time. The Reef View was great"
We had a wonderful time at Hamilton Is and the Reef View was perfect. The staff were very very friendly and helpful, the room was great, the standard of cleanliness was fantastic too. My one problem was that there were not enough sun lounges around the pool and so on one day we could not laze around the pool, reading, as we had planned. The transport […] offered by the Reef View was great, the food was very good. All in all, a beautiful holiday. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
My family and I had a great time at the reef view hotel and hamilton island! Everything was so perfect that seemed we were in movie!Genuine Expedia guest review

Very Nice place!!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient and comfortable"
Accommodation great, room includes beach towels and drying rack use, also washing facilities.Genuine Expedia guest review
We booked the Reef View hotel just 2 days before arriving and it didn't disappoint. We had a first floor room at the front, still had a lovely view. The rooms were huge, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Location-wise it couldn't have been better, just yards from the beach, several restaurants and the free shuttle bus that takes you around the […] island. We'll definitely go back!

"really good hotel, nice view, good facilities"
Friendly staff, but one of the front desk staff is so arrogant.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great hotel, free waterspouts provided"

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! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
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

"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'.
