Hamilton Island Reef View Hotel Review

Only rooms on higher floors of this hotel live up to the name—those on the fifth floor and above have unbroken Coral Sea vistas, while rooms on lower levels overlook a landscaped, tropical garden and pool. All are comfortable, with private balconies, and free use of the resort's sports-fitness facilities and nonmotorized watercraft are included in the rate. Smartly refurbished rooms on the higher floors have neutral-toned soft furnishings, flat-screen TVs, and large bathrooms with dual sinks. One- and two-bedroom Terrace and split-level suites on the 17th, 18th and 19th levels have blond-wood dining settings and fantastic ocean views; the Terrace Suites and individually furnished Presidential Suites have private patios with barbecues and hot tubs. The latter also have private plunge pools. Guests get complimentary use of Hamilton's windsurfers, catamarans, paddle skis, and snorkeling gear as well as sports club facilities and return airport transfers. Family packages mean under-12s stay and eat for free in select resort restaurants. There's an on-site tour desk and, if you must work, a well-equipped business center.
