After reading the reviews this hotel was what I was expecting. It needs renovating and some things in the room were falling apart (e.g. towel rack). But it was a good price and I really like the big spa bath overlooking the ocean.

We paid $200+ for a tiny room with only a double bed. The hotel is so old and it is rusty and dusty everywhere. The Spa next the window is a very good idea tho, however the spa was old and dirty as well. Also noted, this hotel is also about 10-15 mins walk to the Airlie beach town centre... More

We enjoyed our stay... high-set views yet only a short walk to the Airlie foreshore and shops. We both got good sleep each night and found it a great base to launch out from each day. Staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed takeaway from the resort's Thai Restaurant one evening.

This property is located in an excellent location. It is a short walk to the main area of Airlie Beach and just across the road from the Port of Airlie development with its cruise and long distance coach terminals. For those who don't want to walk there is a bus stop just outside the building. My appartment was clean and... More

Regina was just lovely, friendly and helpful. Our two apartments were clean, tidy and have all that we need. Conveniently locales near Port of Airlie and 5 min walk to centre of town. The prices on the Thai restaurant's menu downstairs were reasonable if you don't feel like cooking or going into town for a bite.

The apartment has everything we need. Kitchen, balcony, dining table. We booked a one bedroom apartment and although the room needs an update, the basics are still okay. It's close to the terminal (we just walked took us less than 5 mins). Close to grocery / town centre. we walked for about 15mins. Fyi our family loves walking so we... More

First of all, this is no longer a 4 star hotel. Booked this hotel through expedia. This was done based on the photographs. The price was comparible with others but we liked the spa view and waking up to a sea view. Everything seemed perfect.... Then we arrived. The first impression of the room was how small an executive spa... More

The most important thing when choosing this hotel is knowing what you're booking. Benefits include being very close to the marine terminal (for airport transfers and excursions to the reef) and cooking facilities. The building is rather quiet, and the pool area appears to have been refurbished recently. Our room (just above the restaurant) had a nice view of the... More

When I went about to book the Whitsunday Vista Resort and not familiar with Airlie Beach, I went to check some of the reviews and their ratings vary a lot. I'm not here for a holiday of my lifetime, nor to I plan a spa vacation; for both you go to the more luxurious Shangri-La Resort and Spa! One important... More
