INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 December 2016

We booked a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment when attending a friend's wedding at the hotel. Absolutely great place! Nice, new, big living room, kitchenette, nice balcony, sea view, cool and breezy. Couldn't be more comfortable! Food at the restaurant is good too! Driving up the driveway was quite a challenge but nothing to cry over. Definitely enjoyable stay!

My husband and I have stayed here 3 times. Twice in the apartments and more recently Glamping. We've also used the Spa. It's a great place to unwind and just hear the sea and chill. The apartments are excellent and huge with great facilities. But our Glamping tent was just amazing. It had everything provided and to sit in the...

Came to this resort for a wedding and found out that they have a variety of options available for stay. We stayed the night after the wedding instead of driving back to Auckland. The check-in process was swift and the staff were relaxed and friendly. It has a great wedding venue with outdoor options and the food was well presented...

If you like the view of the ocean you'll like it, nice rooms nothing spectacular for the rates. Food was ok steak wasn't exactly prime cut more of a pack from the supermarket veges where fantastic. Better places to stay at for the rate charged, very unusual position of a small tv up in the air in the lounge area.

Stunning location for a wedding. Stayed here for one night on 25 February for my niece's wedding. Accommodated in the Chalets - No 12. Each chalet has 2 bedrooms with their own bathroom which was handy in accommodating our multiple family members together. Beds were very comfortable with nice linen and the shower had great water pressure. Service at the...

Our stay here was a Christmas gift including the Chill Out Package (accommodation and food).
