Breakfast is highly frustrating!
Amazing holiday with multiple families on this wonderful island. We h upgraded from garden view room to sea view and the view was truly spectacular- would never tire of it. We were away with children from the age of 0-8 years old and there was something for everyone. The pools were clean and kid friendly We tried all the restaurants open at this time and were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. The Sails dinner menu is particularly impressive. Cocktails were delicious. My only complaint would be surviving 7 days of the breakfast chaos. At any time (except bang on 6am when it opens) expect to queue. Sometimes the queue snakes around the lobby. This is of course a transitional hotel buffet breakfast that has been thwarted by Covid-19 rules. There surely has to be a better way of organizing this! At the moment you order buffet food off menu. Despite breakfasting in small family groups- we always had to allow over an hour for breakfast in order to get to any trips in time! It wasn’t unusual to be seated and then for it to take 20-30mins for someone to take your order. Very frustrating with small hungry children! An otherwise perfect holiday
Great place to stay
My wife and I just returned home after spending 5 nights at the Reef View Hotel. What a great experience. The staff were fantastic, always friendly and helpful. We had booked at Garden view room but got a free upgrade to a Sea view room which had a great view. Great room, had 2 queen beds. We were warned about the cockatoos coming into the room. We we’re both in the bathroom for about 20 seconds and one came in and found our peanuts and was into them... keep the doors closed or make sure someone is in the room to stop the birds from coming in. The breakfast was also included but due to COVID the staff had to get the food from the buffet for you but just be patient. The transfers to the hotel and back to the airport were nice and easy. We walked around the island heaps but also caught the free shuttle bus around. Hamilton Island is a great place to go and have a play or relax but be prepared to pay top dollar for food and drinks. The IGA on the island is not too bad to buy food and drinks. Highly recommended.
Amazing Holiday 😉
Wow, what an amazing experience these last five days were. One of the best location in Australia. We stayed in the sixteenth floor and had an awesome view from our room. The entire team at Reef View hotel were welcoming and extremely helpful. Airport transfers, Shuttle buses around the island and the incredible food made the stay just wonderful. The adventures to great barrier read and Whitsundays is definitely recommend. We travel a lot and this was definitely one of the best stays we have had for a long time. Special thanks to Brice for organising our room and remembering little details that made it really memorable for us. I would highly recommend the Reef view hotel and the entire Island staff for any help you need organising your holiday. Thank you everyone.
Just finishing up our week here at reef view hotel and we are so sad to be leaving ! The hotel room was beautiful and nothing beats that view ! We were really impressed with all the staff during breakfast service each morning. With covid things of course are different but they definitely made it very enjoyable. Special shout out to Melia, we had the pleasure of having her service a few times during the week and she was just so lovely ! We had the best honeymoon here on Hamilton island and all the staff at reef view hotel made it even better ! Can’t wait to come back again ! Meghan & Sam
Loved this place
Travelled to Hamilton island for a week long stay with my husband. We absolutely loved Hamilton island - it has a modern beach resort vibe with a beautiful marina and selection of restaurants and pools to use. The hotel was ideal, I’m sure there are other more modern or luxurious places to stay but this gave the best views, it was so clean and the staff are so professional, well trained and friendly. I can’t actually fault the experience and would stay again. Breakfast was lovely and fresh. Nothing is to much trouble. I feel that hotel offers value for money, great location, stunning views and good service. The hotel did get extra busy at the weekend and I imagine if there in busy periods would feel touristy but that will be experienced in most busy places. Well done to the team at reef view hotel!
