Rooms clean and well appointed. 3 minute walk to Port Airlie cruise terminal, 5 minutes to main area of town(bars, restaurants etc). Staff very friendly and helpful, can recomend the on site Thai restaurant, Tai Spice. Brekkie only available Fri through Sunday.

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

My wife & I spent two nights a the resort in a spa suite. We were careful to choose a room which had a "Hot Tub" (their words not mine) in lieu of a "Corner Spa". The "Hot Tub" was small, hardly suitable for 2 people & didn't work very well at all. The room itself was very small &... More

The apartment had great views across the harbour from both the living area and bathroom. The room had a spa, but the jets did not work very well and it needed some cleaning, was showing its age. The bed is screwed to the wall and only a double and not the most comfortable. with a spruce up it probably would... More

My wife and I recently stayed at Whitsunday Vista and really enjoyed our stay. The mangers made us feel really welcome and helped with a tour, the views across the water bay was so tranquil.Even though the weather was hot you could still get nice breeze on the patio and the air- con inside was great.

This hotel was booked by our travel agent as part of a 6 week holiday of a lifetime in Australia and New Zealand . We had asked for a 4 star at least hotel for our final week of our holiday. This was probably a 2 star at best. We were appalled when we arrived. The receptionist ( who only... More

Nice hotel and good facilities .... But be careful when booking. The photos is the room description did not match the room we were given. We booked an "Executive Spa" room based on the photos of the spa on the booking site - it was disappointing when the spa pictured was not provided, but a bath with spa jets. The... More

My wife and I were forced to stay in this hotel after our booking for Water's Edge was "mysteriously" not booked. We were there right after Christmas so nothing else was available. We booked a 5 star hotel and were put in what we would call a 3 star at max in Whitsunday Vista. When we arrived, the staff were... More
