Wonderful guest pool (heated all year round) that is so child friendly it was hard to keep our little people out of the pool for more than an hour at...

We had a family wedding in Tauranga but stayed in Mt maunganui for some r&r as well. The reef apartments are a good 30 minute walk from town but that turned out to be a blessing in disguise. The apartments have an excellent pool for kids and adults and the beach is directly opposite. We got to boogy board with...

Thank you for making an 80th birthday celebration such a success. The 3 bedroom apartment was ideal for the family meals and also scrabble when the weather was less than ideal. The balcony on 2 sides allowed for sitting outside in sunshine or shade, but still with a sea view. The swimming pool and heated soak pool were bliss after...

Decided to have a mid week break for a few days and picked the worst weather to do it as it was in the middle of the storm, but arriving at the apartment an hour before check in was no problem as the apartment was ready and we were quicly installed in our rooms. And what a pleasant surprise the...

Had Rm 406, nice aspect, view of sea. Apt was spacious, clean and well equipped, nice distance from busy area of Mount, and beach across road was much sandier and water clearer than main Mt beach. Great spot.

The only reason I did not give a excellent was the lack of air con in our room, have since found out some rooms have and some not, which made for very hot nights even with doors open, a single stand fan just doesn't do it. Apart from that we were very happy with the whole apartment, parking, location, so...

We were two couples sharing a three bedroom apartment. Cannot fault it. Everything was of a high standard. Fully fitted kitchen with dishwasher. Also had a washing machine and tumble dryer. Beautiful beach literally across the road. Enjoyed watching surfers coming and going.

We rented a 3 bedroom apartment for our family in mid January. We had a ground floor beach front apartment. The apartment was well presented and had plenty of room for our family - there was enough seating outside for 23 people:). The kitchen was very well equipped and having 2 bathrooms was great. We used the pool most days...
