Aside from it being an entire "production" (from the airport, on the transfer bus, to the concierge desk, check-in before the room is available, use locker room for luggage and to freshen up, to finding your bag wasn't delivered to your room, smoking from the people in the next room intolerable, transferring to a new room THE FOLLOWING DAY, ...), the rest is blissful! It's not designed for single people though. Even the menu reflected that in one of the nicer restaurants near the hotel: Sails (steak for two, chicken for two, .. you get the point). There are beautiful parts to enjoy but getting there is a whole other story. Be ready for lots of patience. The trip to the GBR is 2 hours going and 2 hours back; Whitehaven Beach was 45 mins going and 90 min coming back. By far my favorite was Whitehaven Beach, except the "half day" was really 2.5 hrs, there rest of the half day is on the ferry with nothing to do. One person really stood out. Front desk Assistant Manager: Brooke. Really ensured my stay was nice and comfortable. The property itself needs a little revamp and personality but it was adequate. I'm just not sure if was worth the high price range. Glad I visited Hamilton Island but not sure if it warrants a return visit.
