Lovely clean units with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Units rather chilly and rather small wall mounted heater never warmed unit up. So would recommend this motel 100% for when the temperatures are a little higher. Great staff - very pleasant and helpful and well situated between beach, airport and town. Definitely stay here again.

Liked the close proximity to Papamoa beach and Bayfair shopping mall. Awkward tight parking when the motel is full.
