“Idyllic and tranquil.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

We had the pleasure of staying at the Beach Club as part of our honeymoon trip to Australia.

Wow, this place is stunning. We had a room overlooking the ocean on the first floor which was spacious and extremely comfortable. Breakfast was fresh with plenty of choice each morning. Dinner at the Beach Club was first class complimented by great service through our whole stay.

Jet Skiing is an absolute 'must do' quite expensive but really well worth it. A golf buggy is also good for a day to explore the island - do book in advance though.

Food around the island varies in standard and it's difficult to eat much later than 8.30pm. Picnic lunches from the Bakery are a must.

Thanks to Marcus and the team at the Beach Club - keep up the good work.

Dear Julesells,

Thank you for your review and I hope your journey onwards has been just as enjoyable.

We have a variety of activities but Jetski gets you to experience (read get splashed!) the lovely waters here. Should you want a slower and very peaceful experience make sure you do the kayak tour next time.

See you for your anniversary!

Beautiful location, staff couldn't be more helpful and the pool is fab. Breakfast was great and you can also have breakfast at a couple of other places if you choose (all included). Would definitely recommend. Rooms are good, not 5 star but not far off! Free chauffeur service is excellent too. No complaints at all :)

My sister and I recently stayed at the Beach Club Hotel in Hamilton Island, the hotel is in a great location. The beach is on the door step of the hotel. You can walk to the town centre within 10 minutes. The staff at this hotel are really helpful and friendly. The hotel arranged great excursions for us. The rooms were clean. We stayed on the ground floor Beach Club Room, we had a patio area over looking the gardens. If you want to visit the Great Barrier Reef this is the hotel and Island to choose, very easy access to other Islands.

Dear Daxa P,

Thank you for posting your review and happy to see the visit with your sister was enjoyable.
As you mentioned the beach is on our doorstep, so a quick dip in the ocean or a sail on one of the catamarans is never far away!

We hope you choose us again when next exploring the Great Barrier Reef.

Excellent facilities and service. From the moment we stepped off the plane to the moment we were taken back to the airport we were treated like special guests and nothing was too much problem. My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary and it was well and truly a perfect holiday for us. We were impressed by the al la carte breakfast - so unusual in these days of big buffet breakfasts and a very welcome change. The service was outstanding. Nothing was too difficult or too much trouble and the staff were all friendly and professional in their dealings. We commented how they were like mind readers - we were around the pool and were thinking of getting a water, when out comes Zoe with icy cold glasses of water. Plenty of towels and sunscreen available. We loved the dining so much that we cancelled one of our bookings for a "well known and highly regarded" restaurant at the Marina to stay at Beach Club for dinner. We were not disappointed. The child-free stipulation made Beach Club a very relaxing place to stay and we found that we really had no need to venture elsewhere unless it was to go on the sea-plane snorkel trip to the reef or to enjoy an afternoon beverage watching the sun set at the Yacht Club (both are must do's). When we did venture out, the beautiful air-conditioned transport was there to take us wherever we wanted to go. We didn't need or want the golf buggy hire. Thanks Beach Club for an unforgettable stay and we look forward to returning.

Room Tip: We enjoyed a first floor room which had spectacular views and breezes.

The Beach Club is the perfect getaway for couples. With only a few rooms and located on a magnificient beach, it was difficult to leave. From reservation check-in to check-out, the staff we met could not have been more accommodating. Our second floor room overlooked the infinity pool and the aquamarine beach. Each meal we had was excellent, and the casual attire worn by guests made packing easy.

When staying at the Beach Club, be sure to visit the koala at the Wildlfe Center which is a brief walk. There, for a fee, you can hold one and get a picture taken. Next door, you can rent a golf cart to tour the island. There is an overlook on the route that has a spectacular view of the sea and the islands. Take your camera!

On the downside, the Internet service was spotty at best. Also after having the service for a few days, the hotel began charging for usage. We would also recommend bringing a mirror with magnification. Though one was available in the room, it was poor quality and the lighting in the bathroom could have been better. We would also recommend the hotel have beverage and lunch service at the beach. It would be nice to have an evening turn down service, but that was missing too.

Overall, the experience of eating outside by the pool, walking into the sea bed at low tide, and viewing the magnificent show of stars in the sky made this vacation a wonderful experience. It was a ferry ride or jetliner flight from the mainland at the Great Barrier Reef. We will return in the future.

Dear S D,

Thank you for posting your review of Beach Club.

t really seems you fell in love with the beautiful surrounds of Hamilton Island, I agree it is truly an amazing destination.

I am concerned about your comment about being charged for internet, we have offered complimentary internet at Beach Club for several years now. Could you please email me so I can get your details to investigate this issue. My email is marcust@hamiltonisland.com.au

Look forward to speaking to you soon.

From the moment you arrive by air on the island the staff from the beach Club take care of you. You get picked up without having to event collect your luggage and whisked to the resort (in about 2 minutes) in a new air conditioned vehicle. You are shown to the lounge and served a welcome drink before staff explain everything you need to know. the whole thing is seamless.

The room was excellent, other reviewers said the rooms are dated but we felt it was of an excellent standard. We were on the upper level and would prefer the view over the direct access to gardens next to beach.

Breakfast is superb, the ability to order exactly what you want in addition to the buffet really gives you the best of both worlds. Moin the man in charge of breakfast service is attentive and ensures you get everything you need.

The pool is relaxing, with no children its rare to find anymore than 4 people in the pool at anyone time. The provision of iced water at regular intervals make your time by the pool even more relaxing.

We ate at various restaurants around the island, all were superb, the beach Club Meal was excellent, although the steaks in Sails are a cheaper alternative. Coca Chu Asian was also a highlight.

Being able to get a lift anywhere on the island and back was great too.

Tip for travelers: You can hire a buggy to get around, we felt we only needed it for one day, and on that day make sure you get to the sunset at One Tree Hill. it would be excessive to hire it for more than 2 days.

Finally praise and Tips...

We had the most excellent service from Zoe, she worked tirelessly around the pool and restaurant and we really felt looked after, she is a star.


Tips to Marcus as I see he reads everything here

- Maybe look at putting two more umbrellas around the pool for additional shade
- Look to extend the menu slightly for poolside food, we found the choices a little limited
- Serve an ice block in the afternoon to those around the pool/beach, we have had this in the top resorts in Dubai and something so little can just take the hotel to the next level.

A & K Steward

Room Tip: Upper floor gives best view of beach and sea.

Dear A_Steward,

Thank you for your lovely review of Beach Club.

We try hard to have our guests relaxing the moment they arrive on island, so it’s great to see the arrival process was appreciated.

Even though Beach Club runs at a very high occupancy it still has a feeling of peace and quiet, often guests are shocked when I tell them we have a full house due to the small numbers of people around the pool or beach. It must be due to the large amount of activities/tours on offer on island that keep people out an about during their stay.

Thank you especially for the tips, some of our greatest ideas have come from our guests so I am always happy to accept some free ideas, please keep them coming!

We hope to see you back soon.

Regards,

Marcus Taylor

My husband and I stayed at the beach club and we really enjoyed it. This holiday was a de-stress and relaxation holiday. The resort was an absolutely fantastic location not obstructive views of the beach. The staff were amazing especially the banter with Bryce the reception manager he was very approachable. All restaurant staff (Zoe in particular) were very pleasant every time we spoke to them and nothing was too much for them. I enjoyed the cocktails by the infinity pool and the staff even brought drinks to you on the beach. There were towels a plenty on had suncream to help yourself to. The view from the room was like a postcard, the room itself was very clean and tidy, but is ready to be re-vamped to a 5 star standard. We had the Romantic Package and had Champagne waiting for us on arrival in the room. We loved the 24/7 chauffeur pick ups, the hotel had a set up where if you were out and about anywhere in town you would go into a restaurant or the general store to be asked to be picked up and they would contact the hotel to arrange this and was picked up within minutes. Breakfast was lovely as well as the dinner menu you had the choice of a cooked breakfast and there was pastrys and yoghurts a plenty along with plenty of fruit.

We would definately go back again and stay again.

They are doing major refurbishment in Feb 2014 so watch this space.

Dear Michelle B,

Thank you for your review of Beach Club.

Personal mentions of staff really do give a huge boost to the team, it has turned into an in-house competition of who can have the most personal mentions. I think Zoe is leading at the moment!

We hope to see you back for your next de-stress session.
