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.

First time I have booked with them, everything from the check in to check out was easy. The lady at reception was really nice and accommodating. This place is a family place, don’t expect to come for a “love” break as it will be noisy with kids ! Very spacious for the kids to play around and use the scooters. The pool was definitely the big hit for the kids and it is heated !! Little playground and tennis court is great too. DVD, scooters and tennis rackets are available at reception.
The room was nice and spacious and very clean. Everything you need is there. The only downside was the tv channels, there was only like 3 channels available no sky tv if you want to watch a nice movie after dinner so it was a bit boring. Also if you get a room on the ground floor be prepared to hear people walking or running from the upstairs room ! It was a bit annoying when someone wakes up early morning and you are enjoying your sleep-in.... Otherwise location is great just accros the beach and about 10-15mins walks to cafes and restaurants. Will definitely come back and recommend this place!

Install air con or at least ceiling fans as can’t really leave lounge windows open with safety and bedroom windows very high so little cross room ventilation. Maybe some side tables next to single beds. Pool and staff great! Location tops!

Great place to stay right next to sea and close to town. Room very well equipped if you want to cook yourself. Beds very comfortable, room light and airy a great place to stay would definitely recommend.

Firstly the good stuff: the room was neat and tidy. The unit was nicely decorated and there was a glimpse of the ocean between the front buildings. Oh, and the location is great. Just a few minutes walk to the nearest cafes.
However...we had been warned by the receptionist they'd had complaints about the slow internet. Well 'slow' is an understatement. We gave up trying to use the WiFi as it took forever to load.
So on this wild and rainy night we thought we'd settle in for some TV. We were really annoyed to find there was no SkyTV. On checking out the next morning we mentioned to the receptionist about the useless WiFi and the lack of Sky TV. She told us the Beachside units didn't have Sky TV. When we pointed out to her the Beachside brochure lists Sky TV as an amenity, she then turned to her co-worker and said, "they couldn't get their Sky to work". Huh?! You just told us there was no Sky TV, now you're saying we couldn't get it working? How could we get Sky to work if there was no Sky decoder or remote?
We were not given any sort of apology. We left feeling angry about our stay and we felt deceived.
It was rather costly at the Beachside, around $80 more than we paid at the previous night's motel. Guests don't mind paying a bit extra as long as they get good amenities.
We will not be returning.

Hi Thankyou for your feedback. We do apologize and we are upset you had a bad experience. We have since found we do have Sky (no box required) and for some reason beyond our knowledge it was not connected to this room. Sky was disabled when covid hit and when it was enabled again this Apartment was overlooked. This has now been rectified. We have Sports 1 and Movies. We understand your frustration As for the Wifi, this is being dealt with as we speak and the last couple of weeks we have had contractors on sight installing fiber and running cables to all of the Apartments. This will not happen overnight as it is a large complex and we are asking guest to be understanding about this. We know this is not helping you with your complaint but we would like you to know that it has not gone unheard and we care and we are doing something about it. We would love to see you again in the future. Regards Beachside Resort.

Our visit in was very disappointing. Although we booked many months in advance, on arrival they did not have space at the hotel for the room that we booked so we were put in a sister property. At first glance it did not seem too bad, but we quickly discovered that the room was poorly equipped, parts of it were not clean and there was other people’s garbage in the room. The deck was about 2/3 metal and the other 1/3 overlooked the messy backyard of a neighbouring property, not the nice view that we had booked. The room had a very poor tub, not the spa tub that we had booked. The staff claimed that it was an “upgrade” because it had an extra 2 unusable bedrooms on the lower level, however the man checking us out did not dispute the fact that the room that we were given was of lower quality and for our stay the cost of the substitute room was $120 less than we paid, however he did no adjustment for us on the price and instead had an attitude of “tough luck”! Shameful!" In light of this experience, we requested a $120 refund (through Agoda, the booking service) so that we would pay only for the room that we used. Agoda was unhelpful and after numerous emails, we never did get a refund.

I was expecting more from this property.

It is not “beachside” although very close. Our room had a beach view but most rooms didn’t.

Property looks new but rooms didn’t give that impression.

Furniture was worn, bed was very uncomfortable, sleeping on the couch was better.

Room had a musty smell and bathroom needed a good clean.

Lounge furniture had a rug covering it because under it the upholstery was torn.

Stairway to the second floor was not under cover so when it rained the steps were wet.

We had been out for the morning and returned later. Room had not been serviced which was not a problem as we saw staff still working in other rooms. We had a knock at the door to see if they could service room. I said we will be gone again in 5 minutes which she said was ok. A few minutes later another person knocked and said “can we leave these towels here as we are finishing work”. With that she was gone and we didn’t see housekeeping again!

Overall a disappointing stay and over priced for what we got.

We booked 3 nights during and just after the long weekend in late June. As it was the middle of winter we wanted to be warm while in the apartment. We had a 1-bedroom premium apartment ,up one floor with balcony. Fantastic heating and also an electric blanket on the Queen bed we used. Only a block back from the beach, walk through a back gate of the property to get to The Lost Spring which was very handy, walk into town was easy, easy walk to restaurants.
We did not use the balcony due to it being winter. We tried the pool but at 29 deg C in winter it was too cold for enjoyment- better to go to the thermally heated Lost Spring.

We booked the superior one bedroom apartment for three nights. The location of the ‘resort’ is fantastic with an easy walk along the waterfront into town and the apartment was of a nice size.

Unfortunately the great things stopped there. The bed was horrible and the two toppers that had been placed on top before being made did not help the cheap mattress that was rock hard. We went and purchased our own topper to try and help with our nights sleep and sore backs.

When we arrived there had been painting done and the room stunk of paint fumes for the first night.

The apartment was showing a lot of signs of wear and tear especially the carpets which had bare patches and rusted chair legs outside which didn’t look safe to sit on.

Wouldn’t recommend the shower for anyone of a decent height.

I would advise that there are many better places to stay in Whitianga within the same price range.

We stayed at Beachside Resort Whitianga for 2 nights in November on our recent New Zealand holiday. We had a second storey self contained apartment with views across the beautiful bay and would be happy to stay there again on our next holiday. The room was clean and well maintained, the staff were friendly and welcoming and the apartment had everything we required.

The hotel was in a good location within a minute of the beach and around the corner from the main centre. Room comprised a double bedroom, lounge area with an additional single bed and small kitchen area. Reception was friendly and always willing to answer queries. Great base from which to explore the area.
