Recently stayed for 3 nights . On the positive side, the room was lovely and clean, the food was great, staff were friendly and helpful. A negative - it was winter time so needed the heating on constantly or else the room was cold and damp (did smell moldy). Beyond the small patio at the back of the unit bushes were overgrown and the rain became huge puddles.

We enjoyed our stay at the Scenic! The room is nice and tidy, the beds nice and big. We booked in with the cooked breakfasts as a part of the deal. You can't beat it if you love poached eggs. The only thing was the terrible tv reception in our room. Otherwise, the staff is lovely and helpful and the WIFI is a bonus.

Location, location, location - out of the hustle of town, yet less than a km walk to the pier and a couple of hundred meters to the beach. Staff were friendly and there was a restaurant on site as well as several great choices within a cooee of the hotel.

We were here for a small 2 day conference. Only 6 of us , with our families, but we seemed to have heaps of little ongoing queries and requests for the staff. We found the staff to be super obliging, helpful, nothing too much trouble. And all this while they were very short staffed and trying to cope in the school holidays. Credit to manager Mathew, a pleasure doing business with you Mathew. Rooms are very clean and roomy, lush tropical environment is lovely, our units were super quiet and prices very reasonable. Strongly recommend for conferences and meetings. Only tiny negative is poor cellphone coverage in Paihia and especially here. But hotel is apparently investing $6000 themselves to improve this service.
