We stayed for a night on January 10th in the resort. The room was a good size but very dated, it could do with an overhaul. Location is very good. Only limited wireless per day and you have to pay if you exceed this. That will have to change in this day and age. Most resorts offshore now offer unlimited...

Let's get the positives out of the way. Location perfect and the size of the room was good. Areas for improvement (keep in mind a room is about $250NZ per night). No Aircon, the smallest car parks ever, our room was noisy (basically on the road), gym equipment poor, you only get 100mb of free wifi and long life milk...

Fantastic location, great price for the size of the room as well as the location. Beach is right across the road, staff at the front desk are friendly yet seem to be judging everyone. They were more keen on helping a guest who was looking to buy one of the apartments than helping me with my checkout. The room was...

Disappointment! We booked the twin towers with ocean view. The full cost for a 6 day stay was immediately zipped up on our credit card when the booking via booking.com was concluded. BUT what we ended up with was an apartment behind the twin towers on the 3rd floor with a tiny bit of mountain view but most with the...

Thank you for your feed back. I'm sorry that you were left disappointed. When using online booking agents to book accommodation payment is required. This is made quite clear at time of booking.

Such a convenient place if you just want to stay in Mt. Maunganui. Walk across the road to the best beach around. Shops, food options are very close by ranging from restaurants to cafes and pizza.

Good experience except the King bed was very bouncy and did not have separate springs on either side of the bed. Not good sleeps because of this. Suggest new beds. The resort is in a great locality and it was very quiet. Good restaurants around and only 50 metres from the Beac and 100 metres from the harbour. The Mount...
