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.

Easter Break - We were lucky to be able to stay and very much enjoy the Pacific Rendezvous in Tutukaka. Here you will find Ian and Sue who manage the resort , they are truly amazing . the 2 bedroom unit we had was just wonderful , clean , comfy , cosy and well equipt. The view was really out of this world beautiful. The grounds have a great salt water pool -spa , laundry , games room and shop and reception. Walks are a plenty and help is always on hand. Beaches a walk away , shopping a short r drive away. Please go , the Pacific Rendezvous and Tutukaka is a must to visit ! Thanks again Ian and Sue for a wonderful holiday. We will be back

What a lovely venue. Quiet, spectacular views, great fishing, clean well appointed unit. Almost like a second honeymoon.... Can't wait to go back. There is so much to do in Tutukaka, beautiful beaches, locals are friendly. There is something for everyone.

Stayed at the Pacific Rendezvous for two nights in February – specifically due to the ratings and vicinity of Dive Tutukaka. Ian helped me at check-in and was extremely friendly and helpful! He provided a local map and details on the area, hikes, restaurants, etc. There is a small store connected to the reception desk where you can purchase snacks, beverages, etc. You can also rent a beach towel if needed. The place is very cozy and clean. I stayed in a studio, which had ocean views from the back patio on the main level and the bedroom upstairs. It’s similar to a duplex and unit is individually owned and managed by Ian and Susan. The units are self-accommodating. The unit does have wifi although it continuously cut in and out for me. The unit I stayed in had AC on the main level but not upstairs, which was exceptionally hot. Location-wise – it’s pretty secluded and VERY relaxing and quiet. In that aspect, I’d give it 5 stars. On the other end of the spectrum, it is not walkable if you want to be within walking distance of a shops/stores, etc. As a solo traveler, I felt very safe. There are a few ocean hikes/areas that are private to Pacific Rendezvous – Harbour Beach and Ocean Beach. I already planned to hike Whale Bay and Matapouri Bay, which were a short drive away otherwise I would have explored these two beaches. There is an onsite pool, playground area, tennis court, game room, laundry room, etc. The only reason I gave it 4 stars (would have given it 4.5 if that was an option) was the AC. There was a fan in the closet, but it was rusty/dusty so did not use it. That said, I really enjoyed my time here and would definitely stay again. The views and ocean sounds are the absolute best if you are looking for some quiet and relaxation.

What a wonderful place to land! This view is worth the trip to New Zealand. We had a 260 degree view of the bay and Poor Knights Islands -- of sunrise -- it was really an incredible location. Our two bedroom unit was perfect, no television, kitchen had the basics. I will say that the lighting -- like everywhere in New Zealand -- tends toward operating room bright or pitch dark. But it's a minor complaint for a lovely, lovely location and a comfortable, clean unit with an eye-popping view.

I really don't want people to know about this place because I would rather it remain a secret. But in all fairness to PRRM and the owners/managers, Ian and Sue, their place deserves serious consideration and praise. If you are looking for a quiet, comfortable, clean, efficiently run resort, look no further when you visit this part of New Zealand. This is not Vegas, this is not glitz and glamour, this is pure and simple stunning beauty. Hawaii has nice beaches, but they are crowded with tourists. The Tutukaka area beaches are gorgeous and amazing and NOT crowded!! We spent 10 days here in paradise and hope to return as soon as possible, too bad its such a long way from Colorado!! :( Check their website pictures to see this little piece of serenity and peace.

Absolutely spotless!! Very comfortable beds, exceptional good quality clean linen on the beds. The unit was fine, but found the building to be old, appears to be slowly being renovated, looked like a time share arrangement to us. We thought the doors internally & the back door to be very shabby & extremely hard to close. Not great for security purposes.

Our beautiful apartment was very clean and well appointed. It was so comfortable with top of the line furniture and a very comfortable huge bed. We stayed in unit 8 which was absolutely lovely. It was so sunny and private and had the most magnificent views right out to the Poor Knights islands. Each morning we sat on our private deck and watched the charter boats leaving the Tutukaka harbour for a day of adventures. We swam at the private beach and then the lovely pool, followed by a hot spa. What more could you possibly want?New Zealand is a beautiful country and let’s face it…..it’s all about the views and Pacific Rendezvous has the best! Thanks so much Sue and Ian, you are the perfect hosts.

Well we arrived and it started raining and blew a gale and did not stop until we left 2 days later. We had a great room, spacious with a lounge, dining table, kitchen and upstairs the bedroom. Fantastic views from downstairs and even better upstairs. There are decks and chairs both up and down stairs, to sit outside. The grounds were fabulous, views amazing, and they had a tennis court, spa, swimming pool, games room, and even a little shop. We wanted an end room so we had privacy on one side and corner views, which was awesome but due to high winds it blew and whistled around the corner all night. It was terrible weather which was a shame, as it’s a fabulous place, you can even walk down to a private beach. Great place for kids as well. Definitely recommend a stay, all rooms have fantastic views and are really spaced out to give you privacy.

This is a beautiful place with fabulous views and facilities but the service and management is why we will return. We had several special requests to accommodate an elderly relative who is very unwell, nothing was too much bother. The service ensured we were all comfortable and able to share some special family time. We have rebooked while our family member can still enjoy and will definitely return at a later date with grandchildren. Thank you

What a stunning, stunning location. The only thing better than the view was the lovely managers, Sue & Ian, who really went above and beyond for us. My young son William was ill one night and Sue & Ian were so so lovely. Thank you. The beaches are absolutely gorgeous, and the playground was just perfect.
