We had a wonderful holiday with friends and family for 50th birthday and they accommodated us wonderfully. Nothing was an issue. Would highly recommend.
We had the house as well as a few units and they were all clean and tidy, just a hop and skip to the beach and a great reserve in front for the family cricket match.

Room tip: Top floor for a great ocean view

Nice motel set on the beach front. Absolutely incredible beach and bay with the Ruakaka wildlife refuge 500 m away. We loved watching the NZ dotterels nesting in fenced off areas. Lucky enough also to see a pod of dolphins swim by 75m off the beach itself. Northlands best kept secret!
We enjoyed the friendly staff and nothing was too much bother. We were comfortable in the facility. We were glad of a car to get to the local supermarket and restaurants nearby.

Date of stay: January 2021
Trip type: Travelled with family

We had a brilliant stay here once again, it is our go to Motel when in Ruakaka..View from upstairs studio is wonderful across to the Hen & Chicks. Beach Volleyball Competition was the entertainment down at the beach , plus the safe beach for the children to have a swim.
Unit was clean, tidy & comfortable and plenty of room to spread out.
Who doesnt want to wake up to the sound of the waves on the beach, Bliss.
