Reef View Hotel is a great place to stay and caters for couples, families, groups etc. The rooms are spacious and very clean and the views are spectacular looking over Catseye Beach. The cockatoos visiting on a daily basis is a treat for the kids (but do not feed them) and the staff are fantastic. Best to book as a... More

We are a young couple who were celebrating our engagement & LOVED this place. The view is to die for, the room is great, very comfortable bed, fantastic service etc etc. Definitely get the buffet breakfast included - food on the island is SO expensive so at least that is one meal you don't have to think about.

We stayed for four nights at the Reef View Hotel whilst visiting Australia from the UK. The hotel caters well for families, with a large canteen-style dining room next to the pool, that is perfect for kids. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the bathroom has a very good large shower separate to the bath. Breakfast is good, with... More

View can't be beat. The rest is pretty disappointing. These are very dated, simple rooms. For $350/night I thought we were in a class of service where our name would be held up by a valet at the airport. Actually this place is just above backpacker class. The bathroom grout is grotty. The window disgusting and the wall / ceiling... More

Management at the Reef View Hotel made our holiday wonderful. We stayed in a suite on the19th floor, it was spacious, clean and had amazing views. Food & service were great. Looking forward to going back soon.

The only bad thing I have to say about this island is I wish it wasn't so far from where I live!! There is nothing I could fault with this hotel or the island. The shuttle from the airport was perfect, plus they took care of all your luggage I didn't see it from the airport until I was in... More

Checked in the hotel and got to our room. To my surprise on the bed were rose petals in the shape of a heart, bottle of champagne and candles and birthday card that the hotel had made up on my husbands request.
