Guest reviews for Reef View Hotel

4 out of 5
Pros: They were very organized about getting you from and to the airport.
Cons: There were tiny ants found throughout our room. We reported, and someone apparently sprayed, but they still lingered.
Location: Small island, but shuttle came by if you didn't want to walk up hill to town. Make snorkel/ dive reservations prior to arriving!
Lots of families stay at this hotel. Spacious, but dated rooms. Small pool on site but beach was a short walk away. Wouldn't recommend food.

Great location & beautiful views.

Great view and location is great as just across the road from the beach. Great swimming pool options and stops along the shuttle bus route to make it a quick trip into main street of Hamilton Island. Restaurant was very busy each night so would ensure to book if planning on going.

Lot's of room, incredible view, great value for money

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants
If you are looking for a five-star room, this is not the hotel for you. However, if you are an on-the-go family, who really just needs a clean and spacious place to rest your head at the end of a very active day, it's just perfect. And the view -- utterly breath-taking. We stayed in this room with our two children, aged 8 and 11. The balcony provided a place for the adults to relax whilst the children watched tv or slept. The bathroom was huge with 2 sinks, a bathtub, separate toilet room and a shower, so clean-up after the beach went quickly. A frig in the room and several tables and chairs made quick meals and snacking easy. The room was bright and clean when we arrived. However, after 10 days, as school holidays came into full swing, the cleaning staff was clearly having a hard time keeping up. The room appointments were very average (for example, the carpet was laid with carpet squares), but the resort provided so many activities, we spent very little time there and I would have been upset if I had paid more for a fancy room and never used it. A big breakfast buffet was included in our room price, which was a great way to start the day. It was a decent offering, not gourmet, but tasty. The resort had several different pools to choose from as well as a beach. Included in the room fee, was unlimited free hire of all kinds of beach toys, from snorkelling gear to paddle boards, kayaks, and catamarans. We played all day. Just be aware that the bay empties way out at low tide, so plan your day around beach activities at high tide. In addition to the beach, there are so many other fun activities like mini-golf, bowling, movies, art lessons, etc. offered for every age group (during school holidays, at least). There is also a Kids' Club that offers child care both day and night. We highly recommend this resort and location for a family holiday.
