Fantastic Easter weekend at the WIR. Great room which was comfortable and clean. The team, led by Parke, and just wonderful. They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and welcome. Food and beverage service was top quality. Highly recommended for couples, families, singles and businesses.

Bar and restaurant was closed with no other options close by. Shuttle was also not available. At almost $500 a night i expected a bit more! Reception was also closed more than it was open. I've never checked out of a place with reception still closed 10am. Overpriced and lack of service. Never again.

We had planned to stay at the villa haven for 2 nights but checked out early as the rooms were filthy, covered in dust, mouldy showers, old toothpaste on the tap, toilet smelt like stale urine The glasses and plates were also dirty and all required cleaning prior to being used The blinds, counter tops, sofa, even TV remotes all had a layer of dust on them We spoke to the management team who supposedly arranged cleaners to come in but on our return it appeared that nothing had been done We have not been refunded any money - which is rich given that included in their price is a $75 cleaning fee - if only they’d used that to clean the place! To say we are living in a pandemic where hygiene is of utmost importance this place is a complete joke Even the pool facilities were dirty, smelly and with used plastic cups/plates floating around

Response from Parke MacKay, General Manager at Waiheke Island Resort

Villa Haven is a privately owned property that has NOTHING to do with Waiheke Island Resort. We do not receive any money from the letting of this property, nor do we service it, nor do we charge OUR guests any cleaning fee! If you have a problem with the state of your room then CONTACT THE PEOPLE WHO LEASED IT TO YOU - they have nothing to do with our business, our standards & our service! Our pool area is closed for renovation until we officially open on Friday Dec 10th, so I know your claims regarding our Pool are ridiculous - makes me doubt the validity of your cleanliness claims... Anyway if you had a shred of decency you would remove this 'review' as it has nothing to do with us... - Was our business name on your booking confirmation? No. - Was our business logo on your room key? No. - Did you check in at Resort Reception? No. - Did you book through our website? No. - Did you bother to read any of the signage around the Resort that clearly shows 'Villa Haven' (Unit 23) IS NOT owned or operated by Waiheke Island Resort? Obviously not

We weren’t staying at the resort but had a booking for the restaurant. We ended up walking out as we were left standing there for over 5 minutes with no one acknowledging us. The 2 girls behind the bar saw us but completely ignored us. I phoned the manager and he was arguing with me saying it’s common to wait at the bar for over 5 minutes. We weren’t wanting a drink, just to be seated at a table. The restaurant was not busy and looked very poorly run. The manager was very rude on the phone and said he didn’t agree with me.

The view is amazing and the staff were great - the room was such a let down and in serious need of a spruce up. It was so dated and run down. The bathroom smelled of urine and the bathroom vanity was actually coming away from the wall. No toilet roll holder. The headboard of the bed had a horrible smell coming from it and hairs stuck in the material. It's such a shame that the room doesn't match the 5-star sea view. Other things that were a bit odd is that it costs $25 to use the pool? Restaurant wasn't open during the hours that it was meant to be. It seemed the management of this resort is a bit all over the place to be honest. Mini-golf course was great.

Hi Stephanie, You were charged $25 to use the Resort Pool because you were not a guest of the Resort, but rather staying in a privately owned Unit that has nothing to do with our business. We do not have headboards in any of our Units, & we certainly would not allow any of our Units to be left in the state you have described. We're not sure what info your provider gave you concerning our restaurant hours, but Guests of ours receive accurate restaurant hours of operation upon check in - these hours are also on our website. Glad you enjoyed our views, our staff service & our MiniGolf Course - next time we love the opportunity to also provide your accommodation.
