We had never been to Hamilton Island before, so didn't know what to expect really. We have travelled internationally alot pre-COVID, and honestly, we had the BEST time on Hamilton Island. The accommodation from Hamilton Island Holiday Homes (HIHH) was perfect. We're glad we didn't stay immediately beachfront where the accommodation was slightly cheaper, as there is no privacy in those properties and they are very small. Comparatively, HIHH properties were all extremely large, well designed, had loads of amenities, large kitchen, garaged parking AND it included a buggy (saving us at least $889 over the course of the week). You NEED a buggy when on Hamilton Island if you want to see everything/be free to travel around. The shuttles don't cut it. So, to have everything we needed plus great views was great. Perfect service from the HIHH team, who also take your bags from the airport/port up to your room, and back on the day of departure. Honestly, no complaints at all - and I'm not exactly easy to please!
