I have stayed here quite a few times and all times were very good for its price. Right on the beach where the sun sets, island nights every week and daily servicing! We stayed in the self contained villas which was easiest for us as we like to cook our own food sometimes.. would definitely stay here again.

this resort is friendly and good for families but the accommodation is very tired. Ranch sliders that don't fit, dirty paintwork peeling door fascias. However they are doing redevelopment work. i thought the food was over priced for what it was.

At the moment as your already aware our resort is getting a make over and shall be hopefully up and running smoothly by next year. We’re currently refurbishing other room types to help better our resort as well.

We stayed here for six nights last week. It was a huge disappointment. The place desperately needs a refurbishment, everything is old and crappy. The “gardens” are terrible and there is very little about the place is attractive. We had a lagoon view room and the view was amazing. The room was large as was the bathroom but very old and worn. Most of the staff were nice but one particular girl on the reception desk was incredibly rude, not only to us but also other guests we talked to. The food was pretty good but very expensive, but it was expensive everywhere on the island. The pool was pretty small for the largest resort on the island. We would never stay here again and would also advise anyone to go to a different hotel.

Kia Orana debmum3, Thank you for your feedback. This is what we need to strive and improve on for future endeavours. As for our lagoon view rooms they are fully refurbished and have been since July 2019. We’re currently refurbishing other room types to help better our resort as well. We have hardworking groundsmans in the gardens servicing and maintaining our flora and fauna daily - they are the ones who are making changes in the overall look. We do apologise for the behaviour our staff - we will make sure this is noted and make reception aware of this for next time. We are glad that to hear that you were happy with our facilities. Once again we do apologise for the huge disappointment - but we look forward to making a better change for our resort. Meitaki Maata

I’m giving this an average rating but only due to the great location - beach and the food. Amazing staff apart from a grumpy and unhelpful man at reception - your “ can’t be bothered “ attitude re the lateness of our transfer was evident and our concerns where justified as it didn’t come at all. The rooms - disgustingly dirty.They need some serious TLC now. In room towels - smelly. Walls are paper thin. Mould and dirty, dirty ! An argument next door to us that went on from approx 3 am until 6.30 am. This caused concern to all around us as it escalated but no help from the hotel at all. No way I’d ever go back- we had 5 rooms booked and all where In the same state. Flight Centre New Zealand you should be aware of that you are selling - disgusting. I’m sure this review
