We stayed at compass point 1 over new year this year (we booked somewhere else but got moved). The service provided was awesome, valet pickup and drop off from airport, then the buggy to get around. The view was fabulous. The unit itself was adequate probably a little overpriced. The fridge needs replacing, the fans are either a whisper or a jet (nothing in between) and would have been nice to have air con in the bedroom. Also found being on a main thoroughfare was a little noisy (probably more noticeable as we live in a quiet street). Will definitely be back but would probably look at other accommodation options.

This one bed unit could not be faulted. If we ever return to Hamilton Island it will be to Compass Point 1. It was spacious enough for 2 people without being vast and the setee and bed are very comfy.
You could never get tired of the view from the balcony and the tame cockatoos came every day to amuse us.
It was fun riding around on a golf buggy which we used a lot to explore.
There are plenty of different eating options on the island so no need to cook. A perfect stay!

We were greeted upon arrival and taken to Compass point by most friendly and relaxed staff which put us in the right mood. The home was very comfortable with all the conveniences and the view...Wow...we have been to Fiji, Vanuatu, Monaco, Iolian Islands, Santorini, Mikinos, Capri, Lake Como and Lago do Garda - The view from Compass point 1 was up there as one of the best views we have ever experienced. We enjoyed everything about our stay at Compass Point and the use of the buggy was very convenient and easy.
Everything we could want.

Accommodation was excellent for the two of us. The balcony's were a highlight with breakfast, lunch and tea to enjoy the fabulous views and sunsets.
Really enjoyed the convenience of the BBQ on the balcony.
No complaints at any stage and would be delighted to stay here again if we are ever back this way.
Recommend the twilight kayaking and cocktails at the Yacht Club.
A fantastic week for us.
Nice and clean unit with a good view, but a little overpriced

Too expensive for this class of accomodation and taking into account that there is no room service, but the rest is fine and we enjoyed our stay at this unit.

We went to Hamo for a Wedding for friends and loved Compass Point 1. The expanse area of the apartment was welcoming, the bed was super comfy, kitchen needs were accomodating, and the bathroom could have done with a little updating (a little late 80's) but was roomy, clean and airy. Location of appartment was ideal, buggies came in handy, the jog in the morning proved a little hard

My husband and I had a fantastic time. We loved having our own apartment, to have the option to self cater if we wanted to. It was great to have more space than a hotel room.
The view was beautiful and the location was lovely and quiet, but only a short drive in the buggy down to the main street.
Booking, check in and valet service was easy & seamless.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to our next holiday at Compass Point 1.

We had a fantastic trip. Very relaxing and comfortable. The golf cart made it very easy to get around the island.

Great apartment in handy location

The 1 bedroom apartment was very clean, nicely appointed with everything you need, including nice towels and a king size bed. It was also in a very handy location to walk down the hill for dinner etc if you wanted to have a drink and not worry about the buggy. The weather on the island though was another matter - shocking!! You definitely need a nice apartment or accommodation in case the weather is really bad. We had 4.5 days rain out of 6 days. Also found the activities very restrictive with lots of rules and requirements that was frustrating when you think you are supposed to be holidaying in australia. Also everything was extremely expensive. The restaurants were nice on the island too, however they were priced like Sydney's top restaurants - bit OTT I think...

after landing at H/I airport we were picked up and taken to our apartment, given instructions as to how everthing in the apartment worked,including the complimentery buggy ( which is essential to travel around the island.If you stay a week that alone saves about $600. We travel to H/I at least once a year and always try to get one of the Compass apartments , the view is just the best and is more than comparable with the more expensive hotel units near the beach. You have all of the facilities that you will require including the option to cook bacon and eggs for breaky or just have toast or cereal. We have recomended Compass 1 to our friends and some have stayed there and will use the apartment again as will we.
a wonderful family holiday

Compass point was in a great location, clean and modern and the buggy was great! we all enjoyed our family vacation
Perfect place to relax

The apartment had the best view and was exactly what we needed for our stay. Having a pool on site was handy and the inclusion of a buggy a must. We have very fond memories of our time there and have recommended it to several friends. We have since travelled elsewhere in australia but my husband still thinks hamilton island was the best.

calm, quiet and rejuvenating...exactly what was required

My partner & I had a wonderfully restful time. We found it refreshing to have an area that was quiet enough to enjoy each others company as well as the views. There was only a couple of nights toward the end of our stay where there was noise and slamming of doors from the apartment below, but in all, we had a great time and would stay at Compass one again. We would request the same apartment as well.Thank you for a great experience.
Fantastic experience, went because of cheap flights

Great Location shame about the appliances

We stayed in this apartment for a week. The only disappointment with the place was the lack of glassware, and working condition of appliances including microwave which could not get serviced during our stay.
Compass Point 1 Review
Left on 04/01/2011 for a stay in October 2010 | William
Compass 1 is a comfortable one bedroom apartment, with a westerly outlook with views across Whitsundays enjoyed from all rooms plus the large balcony.The apartment comes with an electric buggy which is essential for getting around to the conveniently located Hamilton Marina, Shops and Resort facilities. Highly recommended.
Good value for money.

This apartment is ideally situated on the island i.e not too far by buggy to the main centre,pools,marina etc.Was good value for money including buggy,trip to Whitehaven Beach.Would be better if air conditining was in bedroom but overall it was clean and well caterd for.
