Stayed in a one bedroom self contained unit. Room had everything we needed whilst away from home (bedroom, bathroom, small kitchen and living area). Comfortable, clean and quiet hotel. Short 5 min walk to main street. We had a car and parked undercover... Easy to get around with a car but when driving around Airlie but you will soon learn that most areas around town are pay parking :(. Cedar Creek Waterfalls are about a half hour drive out of town. All rooms apparently have a view of the harbour - to get the great island views though you need to be out of airlie on the islands/ferries! Tour brochures available from reception and tours can be booked by hotel staff and hotel pick ups arranged. We organised our day trips easily ourselves - all seemed to be one set price unless specials were advertised at the numerous booking sights in main street of town. Enjoyable stay and extending our visit an extra night was no problem. Would eat out more next visit as you can grab $10 meals in town without any probs.

Value for money its terrific, a spacious separate bedroom apartment, I loved relaxing looking over the water from inside or having drinks on the balcony with the views.

The apartment is clean and spacious. We stayed in an apartment with the full kitchen, stove microwave, full fridge, plenty of kitchen benches and cupboards everything we needed, including austar for those nights in after a day out on the boat snorkling along the reef.

At reception you can book for the trips.

It was well maintained and we felt the accommodation to be private, you can take the lift straight to the apartment from the car instead of having to go through reception every time.

There is a good priced restaurant. and the location of the apartment is close to the other restaurants, pubs and taverns in both directions.

I will definitely come back again, thanks Whitsunday Vista Resort

This hotel was completely not what we were expecting. Our room was amazing! The decor was fantastic, and the bed and sofa cozy and comfortable. Our balcony had a great view out to the see and the stars at night looked amazing.
We enjoyed using the jacuzzi and pool - both times we were the only 2 down there.
We had a take away from the Thai restaurant which was great value (it is much cheaper to take away than eat in).
The staff sorted out our airport transfer for us and were very helpful in letting us have a late check out (12pm).
Yes it is a little walk to the main street, but anyone can walk it in 5-10 minutes and it was perfectly safe.
We would definitely recommend this hotel.

stayed 3 nights. $340 total
Pros
- good value
- nice cosy spacious apartment
- nice views
- clean
-quiet location
-lift, quite steep otherwise

Cons
- 5min walk to the main street (not far at all, and i was very happy to do this)
- only a fridge/cutlery/microwave - no stove/oven

Overall good value for money, only a short walk to the main town is the very slight downside. Tour operators/airport transfers will drop you at your hotel or you could hire a car.

This hotel had everything we needed while on vocation in the whitsundays. we were told about it by friends who had stayed there last year. We didn't go there to sit around the room. We were on day trips every day and were happy to come back to a quiet and clean bed at night. The staff booked all our tours and we had a bus pick up every day from the hotel. They have a thai restaurant as well and it was top quality food. Would definately recommend this place for a comfy stay.

Our yearly holiday this year was something to remember. We found these apartments on the net and they were value for money and 5 mins walk to the town center. Clean, restaurant, quiet and the best staff. We missed our pickup for a tour and when going to reception we took a ride down to the marina with the manager. The tour was unreal and we would recommend seeing whitehaven beach while here. We will be back to the whitsundays soon and will definately stay in these apartments. VALUE FOR MONEY!!

For those minimal few that did nothing other than lazily complain about the surcharge of cancellation (admin fee), or that their room was misrepresented on the net, or that there was a "massive" construction site directly across the road....I put this to you.

Stop whinging, and start enjoying. Not only did I find the vista to be an incredibly clean and comfortable resort, with views I would have paid much more for (but did not have to), the facilities were all there, all available, and excellently maintained, but I found the amenity of the resort to be unsurpassed. Top location - walking distance to town (even when my wife has a brace on her ankle due to a torn tendon), amazing views (what "massive construction?" Try visiting the Three Gorges Dam in China to see your "massive construction"), and service that would make the crankiest, most frustrated, and scorned person feel welcome.

Henry and Karen did cartwheels to make sure we felt at home, and even made sure my wife had a bottle of champers available on our late night arrival, as it was my wife's birthday.

Try get service, cleanliness, amenity, and pure enjoyment at another location in Airlie Beach at a similar price? Not going to happen - even the *Hotel* across the road quoted us 300 bucks more for the same amount of nights. Do yourself a favour. Read the reviews that are positive, and ignore the 2% that are not.

My wife and I will be back at the Vista as soon as we can, and thank you Henry & Karen for an amazing stay.
