We were disappointed with our stay at this hotel. The bathroom, furnishings and carpet was dated and grubby looking. Our oceans views, like what was promised on the website could only be viewed from a small corner of the balcony, our main view was of the hotel next door. The bathroom floors were sticky and also found some hair. And out spa bath was tiny compared to the one shown on the website picture.
We made the most of our holiday by not spending it in the room:)

I picked a Wotif mystery special for a couple of days. To our delight we found we were in the Whitsunday Vista Resort. From the initial booking we had a welcoming text sent from the resort asking if we need any help getting there. Then on the day were booked in we received a welcome message that morning. The Resort staff were frendly and very helpfull.
Location very handy to parks and lagoons, enoyed sitting on veranda watching sailing meeting whilst sun setting and sipping wine.

Room Tip: Great location for family. Near town and PCYC and parks for kids Eg Skate Parks. Many activites wh...

This was much more an apartment than a hotel room and we enjoyed having our own space in this quiet location - but only a few minutes’ walk from the main drag. We had a hire car and there is a good car park under the building. Best of all was the washing machine (shared with one or two other apartments). It was annoying that the internet connection was down all the time we were there, and internet use is expensive in any event, but otherwise a trouble-free and enjoyable stay.

Our clean, one bedroom apartment was just enough space. It had one air-conditioning unit in the living room and with the ceiling fans on it we found it fine. Washer and dryer are available for free just outside your unit door. It was nice to be able to eat breakfast or light dinner in the room. We were provided with 2 packets for the dishwasher and a small amount of dish soap – just enough for 3 days. We only had a few small ants, to be expected in such a warm environment (chatting with locals they had them as well). The bug spray under the kitchen sink took care of them (and had a decent smell). Internet was expensive at $5.95AU per 30mins.

The husband and wife owners were very nice and went out of their way to be helpful. All tours we booked with picked us up at the hotel.

It’s a 12 min walk to center of town. Most stores are open 9-5, plan accordinly. The night chemist and market was open until 8pm, dinner was generally served until 9pm. Check out the new marina near the hotel – there is a bottle shop that also serves food and has a very large beer selection.

Note that your cell phones may not work here. Our phones from the US did not and several tourists from AU had issues as well. Only Telnet works.

If you are arriving by ferry from Hamilton Island there will be shuttle buses ready to take you to your hotel for $2.50AU per person, no prior arrangements needed. Call to arrange with the same service for your return trip.

Room Tip: Request a higher floor room for a nicer view.

Had a fantastic stay at Airlie Beach staying at the Whitesunday Vista resort. The room was of a good size with everything that we needed in there to make our stay more comfortable.The view over the harbour was fantastic & was complimented by a good size balcony so as to enjoy the view with a glass of wine on the nice warm nights we had. Location was great to,as it was only a 5 to 8 minute walk to the hub of Airlie.Would recommend it to our friends. Thanks again

The managers were such lovely people! The did everything they could to help us with anything we needed and made us feel very welcome!
The room had just what we needed for the time we stated for. Not too much and not too little.
Not too far into town but close enough to walk to the shops. I really enjoyed my stay at whitsundays vista resort. : )

Downsides - The unit needs refubishment, with aging decore. The bed was too hard.
However
Upsides - Fantastic value for money, wonderful service, conveniently located to the centre of Airlie Beach. The unit was spotlessly clean and I would recommend this resort to a friend.
