My partner and I stayed here for two nights, mid week. It was our first time to Paihia. Firstly, if you are looking for a property with ocean views, then this is not the place. However, we wanted somewhere that was handy and centrally located. We didn't spend time in our room during the day, we were out exploring this amazing place. Our room was very well presented, two large beds, lovely balcony, ample sized bathroom, and plenty of space for us to unpack for a couple of days. The reception staff were helpful and very friendly. Parking was on-site and simple. The pool was beautiful and nice to relax in at the end of a busy day sightseeing. Very clean and tidy. Would stay here again.

We just spent 6 nights. We stayed in a ground floor room in the 800 block next to our friends. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay the rooms were a great size with a nice little patio area facing a lovely semi tropical garden courtyard. while the rooms are a little tired (just the carpet and curtains) they were well designed and decorated in a tropical style and were very well insulated. Which ment they were cool in the summer heat and very quiet. The bathroom was lovely with a large shower and nice toiletries. The down side was the old uncomfortable bed. It was ok for the first four nights but the last two we killers. We had taken our boat up with us and there was ample safe parking with cameras close to our room. If the bed was better it would have been perfect. The staff were helpful and friendly and I would happily stay here again
