From the minute you board the transfer luxury catamaran to the island, champagne in hand, you feel special. Loved the food offerings and restaurants, BAM BAM, the breakfast spread each morning - Amazing! seafood banquet, lobster and endless seafood - YUM!! the service of staff, can't fault it. Grace from housekeeping was a real gem, leaving us extra tea and fresh slippers and making us feel spoilt. Loved the spa and salon services, it truly is a special and indulgent place to go with a loved one to feel renewed and relaxed.

My wife and I visited Hayman Island recently to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We booked the King Beachfront Pool Villa and were absolutely delighted with the room and the facilities it offered. Having our own private pool was absolute bliss and a lovely quiet haven for us. With regard to the resort staff, we found them to be friendly, professional, knowledgeable about the island and willing to help with any request made of them. On a less positive note, we were quite disappointed with the three restaurants on the island. Bam Bam in particular we felt was far below the standard we would have expected. Menu items at all three restaurants were often not available, with no appropriate substitute on offer. With no other dining options (or place to buy fresh food on the island) we found that after 5 nights we were "over" the restaurants and couldn't imagine how guests could stay for longer holidays. Another disappointment was the very haphazard and unpredictable servicing of our room. We would have assumed the room would be serviced daily, but found we had to call the concierge every day to request this service - which didn't always result in the service actually happening. If the room was serviced it was often rather hit and miss with little attention to detail. So, to sum up, we did have a wonderful holiday and a special celebration. Would we return to Hayman Island for another holiday - no. Would we recommend Hayman Island to friends or family - no - for the reasons stated above.
