10/10 Exceptional

Really nice relaxing facility. Close to everything. Unfortunately the conference room (meals area) at reef view hotel was closed and there was a large conference on which meant breakfast was at sails restaurant across road - wait time was enormous. Sails food average, no real dairy free options available. Large pool closed for renos so limited swimming options...apart from beach and one pool for kids able to swim....not really a good option for non swimmers.

8/10 Very good

Good overall but needs a tune up here and there
Nice basic apartment, reasonably large and very friendly staff. Very close to everything (island isn’t very big so almost everything is close by). A few small things were broken here and there (such as the alarm clock) so felt like it needed a refresh. They didn’t consistently sweep our floors (seems like it depended on which housekeeping team came by that day) and in a place like hamilton island, we ended up having sand in the bungalow that made it uncomfortable to walk around barefoot.

These bungalows are perfect in that you have access to all of the facilities that the larger complex has to offer but you are a bit more secluded and way from the noise.
