Please see my other reviews for the rest of this meandering tale. ------ The in-laws came to visit from the US and wanted to see the great barrier reef, so we booked in for a weekend at Hamilton Island. The place did just recover from a massive cyclone (in April), so let's keep that in mind. It appears that the...

The Reef Hotel has prime position over Catseye Beach. Whilst the hotel is in need of a refurb we did enjoy a 13th Floor view towards coral sea. We visited 4 weeks after cyclone Debbie I can not give a enough praise for the staff keeping the flag flying for the Island resort. From the front desk to restaurant and...

Great location and views. (Ask for higher level rooms) Shame about the hotel. Rooms tired, carpet almost threadbare, windows dirty, bathroom tatty. Some service staff good, some slack. Overall, disappointing for the price.

An older style building with outside hallways. The room itself is quite nice with a lovely balcony overlooking the bay - loved this facility. Noise comes from the hallways but not from adjoining walls. We were woken up by a guy banging on the next door obviously after a few drinks. He then went onto his balcony to continue his...

The rooms are large and the outlook is great but the hotel is due for a facelift soon. If I come back I would stay here again for the convenience. The breakfast buffet is overpriced at $35 per person for what it is and we preferred to go over the hill for $9 eggs on toast.

This is a very nice hotel. The open air lobby was very welcoming and you are met with a smile. The check in and out was efficient. The breakfast bar was exceptional. It is a lovely property located in the middle of everything. The marina, restaurants and beach are within easy walking distance. A shuttle comes every 15 minutes to...

It is interesting reading some of the other reviews completed recently with regard to this hotel. We stayed for 5 nights at the beginning of May and have to say overall it was a very enjoyable experience. We had a room on floor 15 overlooking the coral sea. (All rooms look over the coral sea). Where else can you wake...
