Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went for a drink and were served by the very friendly Paige. We decided to return for dinner as they catered for toddlers. The portions were amazing. My wife had a vegetarian platter which she enjoyed. Paige, our waitress again, greeted us with a friendly wave. She had our table waiting. It is certainly a place we would recommend if you are in Matarangi.

Happen to drop by and decided to eat there. Great decision. Staff were very friendly and food came at a good speed. We wanted one of the items changed and that was not an issues.
We didn't do desserts as we were too full. I had the bbq ribs and partner had the scotch steak. Both were great with generous servings.
Well worth the visit and would eat there again next time we are in the area

After the lockdown we were keen to escape to the beach and stayed at a friends bach down the road. Matarangi is such a quiet little community. It was such a happy surprise to be able to walk down the road and find a hive of activity, with the game on the big screen in the lounge, friendly bar service and a spacious restaurant area with a fabulous menu. We tried the lamb shank and the steak dishes - both excellent. The wine list was a little limited tbh but hubby was very pleased that a cold Stella Artois was available as well! The plates were presented very appetisingly with fresh seasonal veggies and salad - all very generous servings. Service with a smile and pleasant surroundings too. A gem - we’ll definitely be back soon! :)

Possibly once a good course and could be again with some money spent

Faded glory and long past its best

Dreadful condition now

Don't waste your money on an over rated and too expensive round on a course long past its best

Shame really for a great location

Firstly it should be noted that Simon and the team at The Dunes Golf Resort are first class and extremely helpful. We played 2 rounds on what is a magnificent course. We cannot thank Simon enough for how he helped our wedding day on the course. 5 stars for them.

But the accommodation is now in other hands and this was not good. Our units were missing toilet paper, utensils, dish washing liquid, there was a broken shower door and some power points didn't work! Clearly the state of some of these units has dropped dramatically since they were sold by the Resort. Such as shame as when we first visited 2 years ago we didn't hesitate booking them for our wedding, but the 2 star rating for the accommodation is justified.

But thanks to Simon and the golf resort we didn't let the accommodation issues spoil our stay.

We stayed in unit 45. On the surface very attractive, beautifully located but definitely not clean! The shower upstairs had lovely white tiles with very black mould on the grout. Not just a little-a lot! Above the sofa downstairs a bug had been neatly squashed and left on the wall. Hadn't been vacuumed, no dishcloth to be found, dirty drawers in the kitchen. These units are not cheap and don't do justice to the lovely area. Also, the website needs to be updated. The restaurant that is promoted is long gone. Heard other complaints from friends staying at the same time in different units. Would not stay there again.

Firstly its important to note that 9 of these Villas are owned by one owner, the rest seem to be independently owned. We stayed in Villa 42 right by the tee off for hole 7 which is one of the 9. The actual villa was spacious and well appointed with downstairs toilet, large kitchen then a dining room and lounge opening out onto a small deck overlooking a small lake. Upstairs was a large bathroom with bath, separate shower and 2 hand basins, 1 large queen room overlooking the golf course, 1 double at the back and 1 single. The bed was very comfortable and the area is very quite. So all good so far.
When originally built these would have been good units. There is some wear and tear around the place which I suppose is expected but the sofa is dirty, cushion covers ripped, no spare toilet paper (only had less than 1/4 roll in the toilet) and the fridge had food stains in it and the freezer was mouldy. Its a pity as it was a nice area to stay in and they looked ok from the outside. It seems a bit hit and miss but if I went back I would try to stay in one of the privately rented places.
