We enjoyed the morning fish feeding and location, but the property is dated, and because of its large size you really feel like a number. For example, vouchers for towels and breakfast. It’s lost trust in guests and it shows with some staffs attitude.

Kia Orana Rebecca, Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience at our resort on Wotif. We are so glad that you enjoyed so much of our establishment. Unfortunately, it seems that we did not meet all your expectations. At the moment two of our room categories are undergoing refurbishments and shall be completed in the upcoming months. Your feedback is very valuable to us as we work to be better each and every day, and we would be honored to have you return to our resort in the future. Meitaki Maata

Wonderful holiday experience, such friendly hosts from the man who picks off the loose coconuts that threaten to fall, he gave our children a great lesson in the art of coconut de-husking, through to the Staff that greeted us upon our arrival nothing was too much trouble.

Excellent location and friendly staff. Property is requiring a tidy up. The Superior Garden Rooms have little soundproofing so you can hear your neighbours walking around, talking etc. The ocean View rooms are more modern with much better soundproofing, along with the amazing views all day from your balcony.
