From the moment we landed, we felt it would be a special holiday! We have been coming to Hamilton Island for 12+ years and this is one of the best places we have stayed on the island.
Firstly, the meet and greet / valet service provided was fantastic. Even though we are HI veterans (& know a little bit about the island), there were other travelers that were first timers to the island and Dylan (the driver) was really informative, friendly & helpful.
Apartment 27 was just superb. The view was breath taking.......perfect just to kick back on the balcony and enjoy a sunset or two......or fall asleep. Even from the main bedroom, the views in the morning & early evening were wonderful. So relaxing looking out onto Plum Pudding Island/Dent Passage.
The apartment was lovely and clean & the linen was fresh. The kitchen was well equipped, but we only cooked one night..... we love dining at our favourite restaurants (Romano's and Mariners) when we're on the island......probably a bit too much! We only prepared breakfast and sometimes lunch each day; but we had everything we needed if we wanted to do more cooking.
Fortunately we had beautiful weather, so our son wasn't glued to the TV or Playstation that was available.....but I can imagine on a very wet day, it would be a different story!
Very handy having the two pools so close to the apartment. The Edge Pool which is just a short walk down some stairs from #27 is just the most spectacular pool on the island. Even though it was a little cooler than we expected, we still enjoyed hopping in there. The beach towels were provided in the room........bonus!
Another bonus was that we didn't have to hire a buggy because the buggy comes with the property.......perfect for getting around the island.
So many activities to do on Hamilton Island, but we really enjoy just chilling out and watching the world go by. Overall, our stay was absolutely perfect and we couldn't have asked for better accommodation, or a better stay (for our budget). We will definitely stay in this apartment again too.
