“Visit to Airlie Beach August 2012”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

We had a great stay at Whitsunday Vista Resort. Quality accommodation, excellent location and helpful and friendly hosts. And there's a very good Thai restaurant in the building, which we used on each night of our two night stay. Will be back!

As a family we stayed 5 nights at the Vista, and I thoroughly recommend it as a good place to stay. It was a walkable 1km from the centre of Airlie Beach, but a flat walk, unlike a lot of others which are up a steep hill.
The apartment was clean, roomy, and well equipped. There was a BBQ, pool, and spa available (all of which we used).
There is cable TV (couldn't find free-to-air???).
There is a Thai restaurant in the building, although it was a 10 min walk to plenty of others.
The staff and management were friendly and helpful. They arranged our airport transfer, and we could have booked the excursions through then too, if we hadn't have done that elsewhere.
The only negative was that the wireless broadband that was available wasn't free. In fact it was extremely expensive. That is a very small ask these days. However, made do with the 3G data on my phone.

I stayed here for two nights. Location is 15 minutes walking from the main shopping area. If you get there after 6pm nobody is there to check you in. You have to call and make sure they leave the room open. Room is old and small. You have to throw out your own trash. I would not stay here at the full rate and I would not even stay here at $100 per night.

Dear minimd,

Thank you for your recent review, we certainly appreciate honest feedback. I am sorry you did not enjoy your recent stay, I would like to clarify some points in regards to your feedback

1. Google Maps confirms the property is located 700m from Airlie Beach, I have personally walked this distance in just under 5 minutes, typically we advise guests we are less than 10 minutes walk to Airlie Beach. Keep in mind we are 200m from the Port of Airlie, opened in April 2011, welcome to the latest Airlie Beach Fashion & Dining Precinct. Discover a place where you are just a short walk from shops, restaurants and recreational facilities.

2. Like the majority of self catering apartment style accommodation, reception is not open 24 hours nor do we advertise reception being open 24 hours, however our friendly team are available to attend to any needs 24 hours a day. We welcome late arriving guests most days, if an Australian mobile is available we extend a courtesy SMS to advise of late arrival details, the proceedures in place would appear quite effective.

3. Room is "old and small", this is a vague remark, as you booked our studio style accommodation which is marginally larger than a standard hotel room. We also offer 1 Bedroom Spa Suites and 1 Bedroom Apartments both offering separate bedroom and living space.

4. "You have to throw out your own trash", we encourage guests to utilise the refuse bins located at the property, it is not compulsory. The property is self catering apartment style accommodation, some guests stay weeks at a time, we offer daily or weekly servicing, the tariff you booked did not include daily servicing, if you had preferred daily housekeeping service our team are only to happy to oblige, accordingly a daily housekeeping tariff would apply.

5. Your reference to the accommodation rate is perplexing, we pride ourselves in offering excellent value for money, and having reviewed your reservation I note you enjoyed an exceptionally good value tariff less than $100 per night.

I sincerely hope you enjoyed some aspects of your stay, perhaps our marvellous restaurant, beautiful swimming pool, heated outdoor Jacuzzi or our outdoor BBQ...if you did not have an opportunity to enjoy these facilities I trust you at least enjoyed the magnificent view over Boathaven Bay and to the magical Whitsunday Islands.

I would be happy to discuss your feedback in person (or via Skype from Atlanta) at any stage.

Sincere regards

Jeff Aquilina

Located a touch out of the center but if you don't mind a 10 minutes walk to the main strip with bars and restaurants this is your premises. Very nice self-catering apartment with fantastic view from your balcony. Kitchenette with microwave but no cooking facilities. Comfi bed which allows you a nice sleep. The balcony was quite big with two chairs and a table so you can enjoy the great view during sunrise. Parking lots (also undercover) are available free of charge which was a big plus. Also washing machine and dryer are located at your front door which doesn't cost extra. The sofa was a bit run down but then again we haven't booked the "Grand Hyatt". All in all Whitsunday Vista is very good value for money, would book again without hesitation.

Located only just out of town, this property provided commanding views over the surrounds and water. Lifts from the car park to the rooms, reception, and restaurant were of great assistance after a long day out or for anyone with limited mobility. In summary, the property delivered all that promised and at very reasonable rates. Very friendly and helpful staff enhanced the stay.
