“best location on the island on my opinion.”
Reviewed 3 November 2011

From the airport to the room, great service, nice and helpful people, great beach area and pool. A little hotel with may conforts equal to the biggest ones, we loved it.

Room Tip: Make sure to be at the garden level and not on the first floor

Beach club Hamilton island is a great resort for the price the pool area and beach front location is wonderful and its the only place besides Qualia that I would stay at ,Qualia being double the price and a whole different experience , this has a no kids policy which suited us , and made for a much more relaxing stay , the rooms are in great condition and all ocean front , the staff are very accommodating and can't do enough all in all we had a great stay.

Room Tip: Ground floor ocean front rooms are the best

We stayed at the beach club for 3 nights at the end of our honeymoon in Australia. Firstly Hamilton Island itself is great for a get away - beautiful views, fabulous places to eat and definitely "an escape" from the realities of the real world. The beach club was lovely - from the welcome at the airport, to our room and breakfasts with both food and views to die for. We were slightly concerned by some of the negative reviews about poor quality furnishings etc however the beach club lounge has recently been refurbished and we couldn't fault it. Our room was similarly well decorated, equipt with everything you'd need and had amazing views across the gardens and beach to the sea. The staff were very friendly. All in all, I would definitely recommend.

Our belated Honeymoon was well worth the wait! The weather was the only downer, but we still managed to have a great time.Yes it is pricey, but worth it for the attention and solitude. It was our honeymoon - hang the price!
Even though we went during the busy Audi Race Week we didn't feel left out or ignored. The staff were all very friendly and attentive. Checking in and out was painless and the VIP service from/to the airport and around the island was a very nice treat. The room was comfortable, clean and spacious, although next time I would request to be on the ground floor so we could walk straight onto the beach. Beside the pool we has some lovely cocktails before dinner and the breakfast menu had enough variety that you could stay a week and have something different everyday. Room service was fast and tasty.
Overall a great experience for our first time to Hamilton. We'll be back.
DO NOT forget to close your doors properly, the birds do like to sneak in and eat the sugar!

I stayed here for a week as part of my honeymoon and would highly recommend it to anyone. It's right off the beach, the service is incredible and friendly, and the rooms were clean--nothing over the top fancy, a little more simple rustic. The included breakfast was to die for! The hotel is definitely pricey, but it is worth the cost if you're willing to splurge. We slept with the large patio doors slightly open so we could hear the waves the rolling in at night...so peaceful.

You can walk to most places on the island since it's so small, but a nice little perk is that the staff will drive you anywhere you want in the golf carts at any time.

Let me start this review by saying that we often have an annual break on Hayman Island & have stayed there quite a number of times. We couldn't get into Hayman this time due to it being at capacity - and quite frankly, last year the service was very mixed & it just didn't feel worth the money anymore.
I must say that the whole experience with Hamilton Island & the Beach Club genuinely surpassed my expectations. Starting with the booking - I called Hamilton Island Reservations in Sydney and spoke with a lrealy nice lady called Belinda. She was the model of helpfulness, knew the island intimately & could confidently answer all of my questions. She asked about our flight numbers & I told her that I hadn't booked them but was about to. She offered to do it for me and her pricing was identical to the Virgin Aust website I had open. Furthermore, she upgraded us to Premium Economy both ways at no extra charge! It made the trip a lot more pleasant with this start and finish.
The hotel itself isn't latest and greatest - but it is very comfortable. The rooms are a decent size & our rooms opened out directly onto the lawn - and straight onto the beach. Although I must say that they need to replace the bed I slept in - it was not good at all being really soft and well worn with two huge divets either side of the mattress. And the wi-fi was pretty hopeless too.
The hotel itself has quite a boutique feel - the only issue here is that you turn around when on the beach and see all of the big towers behind the Beach Club! It is a massive island! But you do get to use all of the facilities - including a pretty decent gym.
The staff here were all very good - super friendly, helpful & nothing was a problem. This is in stark contract to Hayman last year where it felt like they had rounded up some backpackers! Here the staff were also young - but they all tried hard and the senior ones were actively training the more junior ones. They all cared about what they did and it showed.
Dining on the island is pretty good. We ate in quite a lot of the restaurants across the island including Qualia, Bommies (at the Yacht Club) & predominantly at the Beach Club restaurant. We also had dinner one night at Romano's (Italian) on the pier - slightly cheaper than the others but the food was still excellent and once again, really good service.
I did head to Hamilton Island thinking it was some tired 80's relic - and I am very happy to say that it was far from it. The Beach Club is not an overt luxury experience - and doesn't have any false pretentiousness about it as a result. But it is a really comfortable and relaxing place to stay where you will be very well looked after. Defintiely worth trying - and the weather in late September was perfect.

Room Tip: I had an older family member with me - so rooms close to the pool & restaurant made it easy for...

Before leaving for our trip we had read the reviews and had some concerns about the bad reviews that are on this site. However that said our stay was wonderful, although NOT cheap the staff and service provided make up for the cost. So the furniture is not brand new big deal , It is clean and not broken or dirty or anything as some reviewers have said, people that complain about furniture not being new need to get over themselves no place ever has new furniture after its opening day ..The rooms are clean and well maintained the bar , restaurant and pool areas are all kept spotless. The greeting by staff at the airport and free drop off and pick up to any location on the island is a bonus and saves you the need of hiring your own transport.... I have no hesitation in saying that we will return to the Beach Club when we have another big holiday in the area .. THANK YOU to all the staff for making our honeymoon a wonderful and very memorable stay.

Room Tip: when booking ask for a room away from the restaurant and if you want the best views on the second fl...
