I stayed here for two nights whilst in the area on business. It was recommended to me by a colleague as a "higher end" option. The two storey apartment was very well appointed, modern, clean and great value for money. The location was also very convenient with several nice restaurants / take aways within walking distance. In summary it is... More

Enjoyed my stay here enough, but there could have been better with some things. Like a spa pool without bubbles is just a bath. I did like the double shower in my unit. And was handy having washer and dryer in room. I do think for price paid there could have been more done as far as room service each... More

The Raumati Sands Resort was more like a hotel than resort. The room we reserved was termed an "ocean view" however, you could not see the ocean or the beach. There were four of us traveling together and the two bedroom unit wasn't that comfortable (only one shower). But, seeing as we were not hanging out in the unit all... More

Nice complex, 2storey apartment with good size bedrooms, only one bathroom but downstairs toilet. Excellent laundry facilities in apartment. Comfortable lounge area - good value for money. No TV in master bedroom although the sockets were there.

The Raumati Sands Resort had it all in regard to space and comfort, felt like our own home. The 2 storey townhouse was spacious and comfortable, clean and welcoming. Washer and dryer was a great bonus, especially as they also provided laundry detergent. Across the road from the beach, 2 mins from a great little shopping centre that includes a... More

Now I see why I couldn't find this place normally on my app, its in the wrong category! Its a great motel, only 25 mins from Ferry and so much better to stay than at Paraparaumu beach etc. Lovely and close to the beach and great restaurants and shops. Swimming pool was good, outdoor area in the unit was perfect.... More

Very impressed by Aaron the manager he was very helpful - even though it was quite busy at New Years time. He answered all our queries and made sure we were comfortable! Rooms were lovely and there were some delicious fish and chips down the road. Would recommend going for a weekend stay at Raumati Sands - and added bonus,... More

I stayed one night at this lovely and well maintained "resort" in their 2 BR unit overlooking the lawn bowlers across the way and just off the beach. The unit was one of the best appointed accommodations not part of a chain and out of a main city that I've stayed at in New Zealand. Besides a comfy bed and... More

I really enjoyed my stay, lots of space to spread out in a one-bedroom apartment, and great outlook toward the sea with a balcony. Bed was very comfortable. Would have liked to stay longer, especially as I could have used the spa and swimming pool. Staff were very helpful. Shops, pub, takeaways and dairy all very close by.
