We stayed for two nights and really enjoyed it. Beautiful location with the beach at the end of the garden with nice deck chairs and a hot tub which we also enjoyed since the weather wasn't so good. Very quiet and restful place with a nice walk into town. Room has everything you need except a little more room for...

Stayed 3 nights here. The rooms are really good and well functioning. The location right on the beach and with only 30 min easy walk to the small town is perfect. The place seems to be very popular also for families. Our best recommendations and thank you for having us. I can recommend a big game fishing trip with "Epic"...

Stayed in king room on second floor - great views of the ocean. A short walk downstairs to yard provides lounge chairs and hot tub then onto the beach and ocean. Kayaks as well as other sea toys provided. Laundry room on site with dryer (didn't need), each room has large drying rack. Beds are comfortable, kitchen well stocked and...

Super location with only 6 units that face the beach. All that is between you and the beach is the garden. Good range of beach stuff and we used the kyacks and life jackets. Very nicely stocked, complete with cafetier and coffee sachets to go with it. Beautiful kitchen with everything that you need. This is a really thoughtfully provided...

Street front, you might not be impressed but continue on in for a compact, comfortable and welcoming beachfront oasis. Everything you need except the food and wine. My kids loved the location and the included access to kayaks, cricket sets and shovels (for Hot Water Beach). I highly recommend Beachfront Resort, Whitianga.

Our family of 4 stayed here for the last 2 nights of our NZ holiday. The view from our downstairs room was amazing. The spa, the free kayaks, the relaxing garden and the easy walks into town were all a welcome wind down for the end of our trip. The rooms were small but beautifully clean and well set out....

We loved staying at the Beachfront Resort, it was a beautiful, clean property with amazing views and amenities. We had everything we could want right in our backyard - spa pool, sunloungers, trampoline, kayaks and a quiet beach - and the walk into town was an easy 2 kilometers. The view from the deck bar was stunning. Kate and Paul...

Amazing view, comfy, clean and friendly staff!! We just absolutely loved it!! It's a BYO drinks and food, but just easy. Relaxing and beautiful to wake up to the sunrise and see the sunset! A little pricy but completely worthwhile! Thank you for making our trip so great!

After a hectic 6 days in the South Island, we arrived in Whitianga along the beautiful Coromandel Coast... The Beachfront Resort was like a homecoming... A place to catch our breath and relax completely... Such a lovely place, perfectly situated right on the Buffalo Beach... Awesome sunrises... Loved every minute of our 2 night stay there... Very comfortable rooms, very...

We wanted a quiet weekend for two away from the big smoke and decided on Whitianga. On previous visits I'd been struck by the unfortunate urban layout which seems to put all the accommodation on the other side of the busy road into town along the beach. Then I spied pictures of the Beachfront Resort and realised it was an...
