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.

Wow such a great place to stay, from the rooms that have everything from Full kitchens to Dishwasher/ Washing machines/ Dryers with washing Powder to the Great pool area that you can see from your room, with a Heated mineral pool and cozy Spa pool.
Directly across the road from the beach and a great park/ free water park for the toddlers and then there is the Boundary Gastro bar within 80 meters of the Sands + all the shops( fish and chips/ 4 square/ Cafes etc and a great little coffee cart thats open at a sparrows fart).
And then to top it of theres the excellent Hosts Paul and Erma, who will go out of their way to accomodate your needs right up to giving you their on car park if you have a oversized vehicle etc.
The only bad thing i can think of is that they are often well booked up so you've got to get in early.
Such a great spot and just down the road from Wellington.

We made a last minute booking for a Studio room on a Saturday late afternoon and were fortunate that they had availability. The large open plan room had a full kitchen, large fridge and microwave. There was a small dining table and chairs alongside the kitchen. The bathroom was large with modern fittings & tapware and had a heated floor. There is a beautiful heated pool in the attractive grounds. A few minutes walk takes you to the small township where there is a good choice if you feel like dining out. Our very nice hosts recommended Thai Lagoon and we weren’t disappointed. The food was excellent. We would definitely stay again at Raumati Sands…great location and everything is absolutely spotless.

We stayed here on 4th February as we were going to our daughter's restaurant 50-50 in Paraparaumu Beach for a celebration dinner. I had always wanted to stay here and we were not disappointed. The apartment was very well appointed and comfortable, with a full kitchen, lounge and dining area, bedroom and bathroom upstairs and an additional toilet downstairs. The pool looked amazing although we didn't have time to try it. The apartment was spotlessly clean and the hosts had thought of everything. I felt, like an earlier reviewer, that I would be happy to live there. We would have liked to have stayed an extra night but the complex was booked out as it was Waitangi weekend. We will definitely be back. We were very impressed. We have stayed at a range of motels on the coast as we have family in the area and live in Wellington and this would be the best.

Raumati Beach is an excellent location, it's about 40 minutes from Wellington and it has the feel of a nice safe prosperous town. Kapiti Island can be seen from the hotel and it's a short walk to coffee shops and restaurants from the motel. Raumati Sands Resort itself is excellent, large apartments with the rooms over two floors. Upstairs are the bedrooms, bathroom and downstairs,, kitchen and laundry and sitting room. Parking is on the site and a major plus point for me personally is the showers are excellent. We stayed for two days, but we could've stayed for much longer.

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed here. This time we had an upstairs studio. It is strange calling it a studio as it has a separate bedroom but does not have a full kitchen. We stayed for 3 nights and did not miss the lack of a stove. There is still a microwave, kettle, and toaster. Also there are so many good eateries within a very short walk.

The resort is a real family magnet due to large two bedroom apartments and a decent size pool. There is plenty of parking and the beach is just over the road. The hosts are very friendly and check in took no time at all. This is definitely the place to stay if in this part of the Kapiti coast.

This place was brilliant. The owner was lovely, very friendly, enthusiastic. The place was very clean and parking was great. The location is so close to the beach and the local village shops. The restaurants are close by and would highly recommend the Thai lagoon just over the road. We would love to come back with friends and enjoy some more time here.

One reviewer in our family (2Y Toddler) cried when we departed for the fair shores of Upper Hutt, as didn't want to leave our "holiday home" and wanted, not unreasonably, to stay there permanently. No higher praise than that.

On a side note, the adults loved it too with a great location and all amenities needed for a relaxing stay.

We stayed for a night over the long weekend. From the initial contact of naming the booking, checking in & when departing the service was super friendly & excellent.
The units had everything you require, nice & spacious. Great facilities & the beach less than a 5 minute walk.
Lovely village, plenty of dining options should you require a block away.
We look forward to staying again.
Thank you

Absolutely perfect for our tour accomodation requirements. Decent size 2 bedroom apartments with the bathroom between] the bedrooms upstairs. The apartments have all you need for self catering and the laundry is handy. Didn’t get a chance to use the pool but it was well kept and clean. Hosts went out of their way to help us.
