Hamilton Island’s Fawlty Tower without the Basil
I have travelled to a number of places around the world and spend over thirty nights each year in various hotels for both business and pleasure. I would not suggest or recommend anyone to stay at the Reef View Hotel. We arrived at the hotel around 3pm and our room wasn’t available so we walked around waiting for the call. We were then charged $60 for my son and I for breakfast each day and I usually book with breakfast included. Movie package is an additional $10 which most hotel provide complimentary. On arrival to the room, the bathroom had a smell to it and finding considerable mould and mildew on the ceiling. My son’s bed had dried blood spot on the lower sheets which we have photos of both. He then spent the nights sleeping above the sheets. sent me the usually email asking about checkin and I was polite but honest. The next morning I receive a follow up message saying “the hotel will mediate directly with the client” - no attempt or such communications occurred. I stated that the hotel room was tired looking. On checkout the arrogance of the French accent staff member at reception when trying to raise issues dismissing me took the cake. PS. Reef View you lost a booking for a family of five and I will never stay there again. The location was a positive!

Reef View Christmas Holiday stay
The views were amazing. The beaches outstanding. Had an amazing catamaran day with Ricochet yachting that we would highly recommend. Hotel is in desperate need of a capital influx of upgrades. Very very outdated. Furniture in rooms extremely uncomfortable. Not sure carpets had been vacuumed in months or that furniture had ever been dusted or picked up/cleaned. Older furniture, paint in need of being redone. Balcony had amazing views, but was in dire need of being cleaned and kept up. We stayed in 2 of the suites, so were on the upper floor. People smoked on balconies, although numerous signs to not do so. Food was so-so. Service poor at most places. Some restaurants completely lacked service. No one would greet us or seat us. This happened at 2 places, so we just left. If you are interested in cocktails ~ don't bother, stick with beer or wine. Cocktails are very poorly made and in most restaurants around the world would not pass as a cocktail. Blended ice with a splash of fruit juice is what it ended up being. Poor bars were the worst. If you have breakfast included, Sails was the best option for breakfast. Had a better variety, was quieter and great views. Could easily and quickly walk around the island. Buggies not necessary. Nice to get some exercise! Had incredible weather and very much enjoyed snorkeling and swimming at low tide.

The whole island is the resort and is run perfectly to a T. We stayed at the Reef View Hotel on the 11th floor (Coral Room). It had amazing views, huge and spacious room and bathroom. The balcony had stunning views of Catseye Beach. You can charge everything to the room on the island. The following were included with our room but we were not told upon check in so I was a bit disappointed we didn't have more opportunity to use them: breakfast, kayaks, paddle boards, hobie cats, and snorkels. There's free shuttles running to the marina (where the shops and restaurants are) and all over the island. You are allowed to use any of the pools at any property except the Members only Beach Club. Kids eat free at select restaurants. The island has go-karts, kids quad track, atv rides, bowling alley, driving range, wildlife park and miniature golf. Excellent customer service (minus not being told about the free breakfast and free rentals at the beach upon check in). The whole property was clean and spotless. They conveniently have a departure/arrival locker room with showers and bathrooms if your room isn't ready or your departure is later. Tip: Reef View rooms-request a higher level for views, remember free breakfast and rentals at the beach. Do free breakfast with Koalas at the wildlife park.

Hotel has the most amazing view
We stayed in king ocean view room on 16th floor and boy did it have a view. Everyday I woke up to see the sunrise from our balcony. They are very well organised. They will ask for your flight info in advance and have buses waiting outside airport to take you the hotel which is hardly 2 mins away. Buffet breakfast at sails restaurant is really good. Beautiful pools with ample greenery and the beach around makes it look like a tropical paradise. There is free transport available for nearby activities and around the island. Blue buses and green buses run different routes. Staff can help figure out which one goes where. All adventures activities can be booked from the hotel center reception area. We had fantastic time with our jet ski, kayak and white haven tour. If you find snack bar in your room expensive then there is IGA near post office which is ok price wise for water and snacks. (I don’t have kids but due to school holidays I saw lots of families having many activities for their children too) their pool side restaurant was nice place for dinner. Only disappointing thing was that we had to leave in 4 days. Hope this helps someone.

Let me start by saying I’m leaving this review to advise fellow travelers about what they’re signing up for when staying here. This hotel is part of an inclusive island, meaning you can charge EVERYTHING on the island to your room (i.e. restaurants, pool bars, excursions, wildlife park, buggy rental, activities, etc). It felt like I was part of an all inclusive resort/boat cruise except I had to pay extremely inflated rates for everything I did. There is zero competition so don’t expect great food or drinks. ALSO- THIS IS HUGE SO READ CAREFULLY- we stayed the 4-6 of January. Upon arrival every restaurant was booked until the 8th, every buggy was booked until the 10th, and every koala encounter was booked until the 8th. So we literally ate CRAP for every meal, never had the opportunity to rent a buggy, and never held a koala (which was a highlight for me). With all of that said, the employees on the island are amazing and they take customer service to the next level. The rooms are extraordinary, all with insane views of the bay. Everything for the most part is walking distance and they have a great transit service. Just know what you’re signing up for when booking any accommodation on Hamilton island.
