We stayed for two nights, unit was spacious, bed sooo comfortable,lovely bathroom.
Staff all very friendly, enjoyed our swim's in the pool and the relaxing surroundings it offers. Would recommend the Hotel to other travelers .

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are cooler and quieter in the summer

We visited this hotel for three nights recently. My husband is full time in an electric chair. Our accessible Harbour view room had recently been refurbished and was great.The room was on the small side but everything worked well and it had a nice view over the pool and Harbour. The Bar and grounds were less accessible for us but we did find a way around. The management were very obliging and told us that they are going to start building a ramp to the bar -we will look forward to using that another time.

Lovely place to stay with nice surroundings.Staff
were friendly and helpful. We decided to stay an extra night. Rooms were comfortable and well positioned. The poor area was gorgeous with impressive views. We are an evening meal there which was delicious, waiting staff were attentive without being overbearing. Would love to go again.

This resort is in a fantastic setting in the Bay of Islands....across the Bay from the busier town of Paihia. The rooms are perfectly adequate and comfortable, with an on site restaurant which may be considered over priced at NZ $ 45 for buffet. The a la carte menu is adequate, with a good choice of fare. It is handy for the Waitangi Treaty grounds (NZ $40), and a wonderful trail to the Hurara Falls
HOWEVER ....
Please be aware that whilst from superior room, you have an unsurpassed view of the Bay, morning til night, it isn't at all possible to enjoy the peace and tranquillity you might expect. The resort pool is situated bang in the middle of the resort, almost directly in front on the Hibiscus wing, and open from 7.00 am until 10.00 pm. It is not possible to enjoy the view and scenery without constant screaming, shouting and caterwalling from the pool area. If you are looking for somewhere to switch off and enjoy a total relaxing and quiet break, I suggest you give this place a miss

We stayed for two nights as part of a tour. The hotel was excellent and the views were stunning. We had a huge bedroom with a spacious bathroom with French doors opening out onto a patio onto the lawn and down to the sea with stunning views across the bay. It was a 20minute walk into the town and the hotel operated a free shuttle bus. We ate in the restaurant and the food was fine. The buffet breakfast was very good. We chose to pay for a limited amount of wifi. We really enjoyed our stay.
