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.

Lovely meals, service and atmosphere at Māra for breakfast and dinner. Beautiful decor and clean throughout. Coffee was 5 stars, as well as their scrambled eggs, prawn croquettes and snapper dish. A favourite was their strawberry trifle for dessert. Super refreshing and not overly sweet....Service was super friendly, responsive and welcoming.More

Ok let's start off on the right foot; Mara is not Wahi and hasn't been for months since the new owner/operator took over. Like any revamped restaurant it takes a while to read what customers actually want and adjust the menu accordingly. This can be...quite daunting as people now expect more for less. Living locally, "she who must be obeyed" and I try to spread the love (and money) across all the eateries, so in keeping with our commitment we have been to Mara several times and have not come away disappointed. A special mention to the Barista's and chefs especially those responsible for huge breakfasts, pies, sausage rolls, and other pastries which are top-class. 2023/24 has seen the hotel running at 100% occupancy which naturally slows the preparation and service of food, so if you want fast food go to KFC or McDonalds, but if you want tasty and fresh then be patient. As to running out of a particular accompaniment; "boo-hoo, cry me a river and get a life" This team is trying hard, but if I felt they were not deserved of a VG rating then I would have said so. For all those who have had a pleasant experience, please jump on board Tripadvisor and say so.More

I took a family member here for Breakfast as I love their coffee and eggs Benedict. This time the breakfast was very late, the coffee was ordinary and when the eggs bene arrived it was naked! No Hollandaise.... "Oh we have run out" the waitress...said breezily. Lordy Lordy An eggs bene without hollandaise. What did they think was going to happen next? Of course I complained - At least they should have explained that there was no hollandaise sauce before I ordered. They were so apathetic there must be something wrong - Maybe they have sold the place. But I'm not going back . There are too many other better cafes. A shame for Tutukaka, however, one of our tourist meccas.More
