This hotel was okay - for it's price I would have expected better though, and I guess you pay for the view and location. The location is wonderful, in a peaceful ocean inlet with a very short drive to food and shops. The website and booking site seem to be misleading as the rooms in person are dark and old-fashioned,...

We weren't so happy with the first unit given as we'd requested an upstairs room and got a downstairs. New owners were very happy to move us, nothing was any trouble including keeping the pool open for our kids to have a final evening dip. Really enjoyed our stay here. Peaceful and stunning location.

Nice quiet spot on the bay just around the coast and easy walking distance from Mangonui town restaurants and shop. Two level "settler" style building, parking around the back (spaces a bit tight) laundry and area for preparing your catch! Rooms good and clean, if a bit dated, service from the owners was excellent, really helpful. Would return. Don't know...

We had a special deal for a getaway weekend at this resort. We (felt) that because it was on of their "deals", that although we were the only guests there, we were given (possibly), NOT a premier room. The first floor rooms would have had a fabulous view, where as our ground floor room did not. The location is fabulous,...

Really enjoyed our stay at Acacia. The location is perfect and the views in the morning and late afternoon are just stunning. The rooms are fully equipped with everything that one would need, while the furniture is simple but ample. Very good price for what you get, especially if staying with a group as opposed to travelling solo. Would definitely...
