The following are excerpts from:
"There is accessible parking spaces outside the hotel and near the ramp access to the hotel.
For guests who need to stay in their wheelchair, there’s a wheelchair accessible shuttle bus from the airport to the hotel."
"We were impressed to find a button inside the apartment which operated the door.
Often in accessible rooms we need to rearrange the furniture to allow enough room for manouevering the wheelchair but not at Reef View.
The room hasn’t lost any features to make it so spacious. There’s lounge chairs, a desk, flat-screen TV, mini-bar, tea & coffee making facilities and all the crockery at a lowered level.
The room even has the option of an interconnecting room, making it more versatile for families or for someone travelling with a personal assistant/carer.
When I opened the wardrobe and found [a hoist] provided, by the hotel in the room, I was delighted. This will make it easier for so many travellers with mobility restrictions.
The safe, iron and clothes rack are all lowered to wheelchair height.
The balcony has a step-free entrance and offers glimpses of the reef and ocean."
"Like the bedroom, the bathroom is large and well appointed for easy access.
The toilet has grab rails on either side which lift out of the way for transferring from a wheelchair. There’s room on either side of the toilet for transferring.
The sink has room underneath for wheelchair access, is height adjustable and all taps are lever taps.
The shower chair is moveable and also has grab rails that lift out of the way for easy transfer. The seat is also height adjustable and there’s a hand-held shower."

"The external door to the accessible room is brilliantly opened electronically from the outside and also activated from inside by a low height press button
I required a standing hoist (not the lift hoist provided) and was able to hire that from the mainland along with a wheeled shower/commode.
The main room and bathroom are very spacious with room for extra equipment and power points available for recharging mobility equipment. The large cupboard sports not only the standard inclusions such as an iron and ironing board but a safe, a lift hoist and sling too.
Hoist transfers are easy with under bed height allowance and the flush entrance from the room to the balcony made for easy rolling. The outside sliding door was not as heavy as some to manually open. The main living area has a roll under-table as well as, ease of self-propelling, carpet tiles.
A wonderfully large bathroom was easy to use with the option of a pull-down shower seat and handrails, a large space for a shower/commode and the accessible “must-have” – a handheld hose. The toilet had great fold-away handles for support but also had enough space around it to wheel a commode chair over the bowl.
The roll-under basin was ideal with swing-away extra shelving for your toiletries. The carpet tiles are the best type for self-propelling too."
