We are traveling to Hamilton Island in the April school holidays and have no idea what to book. Thinking of a 2 bedroom apartment. Any recommendations?

Thanks, Lisa

Hi We went to Hamilton island for our honeymoon it's amazing!! We stayed at the reef view hotel. We thought it was good, plus it was well priced I would recommend you get the breakfast daily option, it was amazing and u could choose from 3 different places to eat. Can't wait to go back!!

Personally I think an apartment is best, you get a buggy included for the price so don't have to rent one (which can be expensive).

We stayed in a Shoreline apartment when we got married up there a few years back. It was beautiful, very comfy and we'd stay there again. Our guests stayed in lots of different apartments, you can find ones to suit any size group so look around online. All of them were very good quality.

Now I want to go back there!!!

We rented a house when we stayed there as there were three couples. That came with a buggy and transfers from the airport. I would love to go back with the kids one day. I also highly recommend the Safari tour if they are still doing them - the absolute highlight of our trip original.gif

We went with our 6 and 4 year olds last year. We stayed at the Reef View and the rooms are enormous! 2 QS beds, with plenty of living space, a huge bathroom and a balcony. And the breakfast was great!

We could walk to most of the attractions - pools, mini golf and bowling - and when we wanted to go to the marina we used the free mini buses to get around. We then rented a buggy for a day to explore the island.

We usually opt for apartments over hotel rooms but the Reef View was a great choice.

Stayz has lots of good apartment options. You can order Coles online and have it delivered when you arrive.

We stayed at Poinciana I think it was 209. Water views very spacious and buggy included. Great location As you are in between the marina and the beac  
Word of warning take as much food as poss, general store is ridiculously priced.
Enjoy

We went this Christmas with a 7 yr old, 8 yr old and a 6 month old. We stayed in the frangipani apartments and they were great. We also had a ground level one so the kids could play out the front. It was right up the end of catseye beach so was really quiet and secluded. There was a small pool right out the front (great for when bub was sleeping and hubby didnt want to take the others far) but was within walking distance of the main pools still. As others have said it also included a buggy and this was a definite must for us! The kids absolutely loved going exploring on the island. Also it made meal choices easier as we could easily pop over to the marina where there are other options and activities.
