Stayed here for 2 nights. Room not ready on arrival late in the day despite resort only having 3 rooms booked for the night, complimentary drink as an apology for the delay. Room very clean except for the drinking glasses which both still bore the lipstick of the last guest.
Staff very friendly. Food at restaurant fabulous but limited menu choice.
The other thing of note is that the foot traffic on the board walk outside of all the accomodation has the potential to be REALLY noisy if the resort was full, our room was located at the corner where every guest and staff member had to walk past to access rooms and restaurant so if you are a light sleeper this may be a problem. Lucky for us there were minmal guests during our stay.
Area very beautiful & isolated but ideal to explore 90 mile beach and Cape Reinga and of course if you play golf. Lovely pool for those that don't play golf.
The only thing that would meet the qualmark 4 1/2 stars standard is the price in my opinion.
