The only good thing about this hotel is the view. It's outdated and desperately needs an overhaul. The food is rubbish, service is lacking, internet is slow and patchy and personally I would recommend staying anywhere else on the island. One of the managers 'James' was rude and unreasonable. When I was going for a walk I asked 'James' the...

Reef View Hotel has all the potential to be great, however, there were some obvious flaws. Starting with the positive, the facilities were great, e.g. Gym, Spa, Sauna, Tennis courts and the pools. Unfortunately this was let down by lack of staff, poor building maintenance (Constant leaks from the lobby roof) and slow service in the bar areas. Hopefully major...

We stayed here for one night following a 2 week adventure around Australia! The welcome we received when we checked in was wonderful. The room was large, clean, comfortable and perfect. We were on the 18th floor so had perfect views. We ate in the hotel's restaurant and the food was excellent and the wine was really good too :-)...

We were a large party attending my sons wedding just after the cyclone. The wedding was on and off a few times before being confirmed as on. Admittedly this was not the hotel's fault but I have not found this hotel to be the paradise that some others have reviewed. The restaurant at this place is amongst the worst I...

Our group of 11 ended up staying at the Reef View hotel after our booked holiday house was damaged in the recent cyclone. At first we were disappointed our holiday was not proceeding as planned and were going to cancel altogether. However we were offered the Reef View as an alternative and were pleasantly surprised. We had 4 x coral...

If the Great Barrier Reef is famous for diving then this place fits right in, because it's a dive. Service was terrible, food average at best and it's dated. After 3 hours we finally got our bags after we found them unattended at the goods lift. We came twice this trip to Hamilton island. First and last.

I travelled with my wife and three kids (10, 12, 12) and we all had a ball. It was two weeks post-Cyclone Debbie so some trees were showing a bit of damage but nothing to stop us having a great time. Reef View Hotel was excellent. Staff were super friendly, upgrade to Presidents Suite was greatly appreciated and the pools...

This hotel is ok. The rooms are spacious, but quite outdated. It is central to pretty much everything on hamilton island, the restaurant and bar are good, staff are friendly, and all said, i probably would stay again if I ever returned.

Stayed March 2017 with my husband and grown up daughter, we were very excited and had planned several trips for our 4 day stay. We unfortunately arrived 5 days before cyclone Debbie hit the island , as a result we had a lot of rain and wind. The hotel is in a beautiful location with lovely views and excellent water...
