This is an excellent hotel option for Hamilton Island. The king room reef view had a delightful view and was a great size with lots of space, a nice bathroom, a big modern TV with HDMI inputs, and a balcony with a view. The rooms were a bit noisy on the busier weekend, but fine during the week. Fantastic place for an easy tropical resort stay.

Great location - but everything is on Hamilton Island! We felt the hotel was looking a bit tired and the lifts are painfully slow, not working, just inefficient which we found frustrating. Staff very helpful and the whole island is very well organised.

Great views. The shower was suitable for a person shorter than 150cm and the water temperature was variable and difficult to adjust. The bed was creaky. The amount of light from the glass panel in the door was disturbing to sleep. The amount of noise from the generator at the back of the hotel was noticeable during the night.

Perfect location and beautiful views. Great breakfast buffet (which is included)! Easy to get to beach, to the wharf where all restaurants are, as well as great pool. What was really good is that the sup, kayak and snorkeling hire was all included and didn’t need to pay out of pocket for those. Really great holiday experience!

I would give it 5 stars if it were half the price. The premium price you pay do put your expectations on a high level, which are not met fully. Great room, enormous bathroom, comfy bed. Magnificent view, high service levels. Yet shower screens almost opaque from scale, bird poo on the balcony, no ceiling fan in toilet, dirty flyscreen, bathroom window difficult to operate. Un-appealing tired building - see picture: it's the high rise on the right. Doesn't show in any of the pictures on the website ...

Awesome stay at the Reef Hotel. Staff were amazing, friendly, helpful, and went out of their way to make our stay there so enjoyably memorable. We cannot fault the Reef. Rooms were spacious and clean and luxurious. And the views, spectacular. Thank you guys for the most enjoyable time that we spent there, we will definitely be coming back to the Reef.
