The property was no where near where it was 5 years ago when we stayed there for our wedding night. It was disappointing to have expectations not met this time we stayed. What hotel doesn’t have sky these days??? Ive suggested they declare that on their website as many Kiwis would expect to check in and watch the game on TV. Also there was no way to block out the light from the wood Venetians in the room so we had a terrible nights sleep in room 3 with the light pouring in. It was ok but not worth the $350, only reason I’m writing this review is I gave feedback at checkout and they couldn’t have cared less ;( so likelihood is someone will experience the same thing.

Kia ora Anonymous, I am really sorry to read you feedback. It is a shame that you haven't let me know who you are, so I can make contact with you personally and discuss your feedback. I would be really happy if you wanted to contact me directly to have this chat about your experience. We do offer Sky TV channels in the main pavilion, however we also offer a casting service in the Villas, so that you can cast from your personal device to the TV, be it Netflix, SkyGo, or any other platform that you might subscribe to. I am disappointed that you believe our reception team didn't care when you highlighted your concerns, I can assure you that this simply isn't the case, we take all guest feedback on-board and learn from it. I look forward to hearing from you directly. Kindest regards Marcus

This resort is beautiful, reminds me of being in Fiji. Great big Villas lots of space and beautiful views of the water and golf course. Breakfast was great we didn’t have any other meals as we were out at a wedding. Ridges has taken over this establishment and has owned it for 8weeks. There is a small fridge no cutlery so you will either need to bring that done at the restaurant or there is a big countdown and lil township 5 mins drive away. The beds are super comfy!!! We highly recommended staying here.

The rooms are big and the staff were friendly. The room is a little outdated with no minibar/food, so you are limited to the restaurant. The bathroom was a little old and the bath wasn't as clean as id like. When we came to the room, outside were all the sheets and rubbish of the previous guest, so it was a bad first impression. However, staff were great and changed our room, so it wasn’t an issue
