We just spent five nights at The Reef View Hotel on Hamilton Island. We stayed in a one bedroom suite, which was stocked with everything we needed. These units have a living room with balcony, dining area, small kitchen and half bath downstairs, a very large bedroom with ceiling

We had a short stay here with our two young children (almost 2 and 3.5) for a wedding on the island. Our baggage didn't show up and the hotel couldn't do enough to help us even though it wasn't their fault. They brought us nappies, extra toiletries and gave us dinner 'on the hous

Stayed here with my girlfriend and although the location and view is great that is about it. The hotel is a 1970’s high rise eye sore with very poorly trained staff.

On several occasions that we wanted anything done we had to call at least 3 times on each occasion for anyone to

I stayed at the Reef View Hotel from the 6th to the 9th of December 2018.
The booking process was quite confusing but was great that I could add my Velocity Frequent Flyer number to earn a few points for the stay! An added bonus that transfers to the hotel were included in the r

We booked a king suite and was on the 14th floor - incredible views of the Coral Sea!! The room looked like it was renovated but the bathroom really needs a refurbishing. Room was clean enough but not 5-star standard. There was debris on the carpet and watermarks left from glasse

Hi, are sunbeds in the beach? Do we have to book it? Thanks
Hi, at all the pools and on the beach you'll find shade umbrellas and sunbeds. You just need to get in early. Lots to do on the beach with kayaks, catamarans for hire, paddle boards etc. lots of activities if you are interested.

I was just wondering what tours you would recommend, my partner and I have booked for April next year and there are so many different ones. Definitely want to go to Whitehaven Beach and Reefworld, we are debating whether to do the flight, sail option or do the sail and do a flight another day. Also any other islands that are a must see. Any recommendations would really help Thanks
I have been to Daydream Island and it’s nice but literally the resort is the whole island and food was expensive and I felt the options were limited. I would book tours when you get there as the. They have just the ones from the island and it is a lot less intimidating. There is an app you can download on your phone the Hamilton Island app and I found it really great. It really is up to you what tours you choose. I loved the Whitehaven Beach half day afternoon tour but it was winter, that’s why I chose the afternoon and I had a 3 year old with me. If I didn’t I would have done the full day there. I think reed world needs to move its Li action as my daughter was very disappointed in how white the coral was. So if getting a flight, I am not sure how beautiful it will look.

We are planning to go HI for 5 days 4 nights holidays on the 2nd week of Dec this year with 2 Kids age 12 and 4 respectively. I was wondering if the full day Great Barrier Reef is still worth to visit nowadays as I know most of the coral is dead and my 4 years old girl not snorkel obviously. I would like to visit the Whitehaven beach too (preferred the full day tour as well as there is the min age restriction 5 for the half day tour) but just a bit worried will it too tired for the little one? Any good suggestion? Or both Great Barrier Reef and Whitehaven Beach is the must to do in HI? Thanks.
The GBR is still worth visiting for sure, but to see the kind of coral and marine life in the brochures, I suspect you'll need to go to quite specific (i.e. off the beaten track) spots within it. My wife and I were taken to Chalkies Beach, which is quite a popular spot with many tour operators, and I must say it was disappointing and sad at the same time. I really wished I had visited years ago. With kids in tow, I doubt you'd be too adventurous; so if you're going to the more touristy spots, then I'd say the GBR is optional (sad!). You should also note that the boat ride there can be very choppy and December is stinger season. Whitehaven Beach is a truly pretty beach and is worth visiting just for the sand, which we're told was used for the Hubble Telescope (could be a urban myth, not sure). Funnily enough, we actually enjoyed Catseye Beach the most - kayaking, swimming, sea breezes, cocktails, good food, etc. Enjoy!

"The rooms from the higher floors have incredible views of Coral Sea."
"Get an uppeer floor with beach views"
"Ask for room above 4th floor with ocean view will get uninterrupted views, anything lower the palms will block your views"
"The rooms at the very top are much larger, like penthouses almost."
"Request a high floor"
