Clean, airy and spacious, reasonably priced. Great location to Dive! Tutukaka. Polite hotel staff, but very inefficient hotel restaurant staff especially in the mornings when you went to get moving. Go next door to Schnappa Rock for some awesome seafood.

I was really looking forward to getting into my room and just taking a break from the sun and heat. Unfortunately, the rooms had no AC and my room faced the afternoon sun. URGH. There was even a floor fan in the room to try and help, but it wasn't pleasant. Once the sun went down, it did cool down,... More

Dear Taezar, Thank you very much for your feedback. The point you are making regarding the rooms being hot is very valid. I am happy to tell you that we are consulting a contractor and hoping to have air- conditioning installed in the hotel rooms by summer. Your satisfaction is important to us and we will be using your feedback... More

Particularly if you are heading out fishing or to dive the Poor Knights. The room was modern an clean, a couple of paint chips here and there, but it's a hotel not a show home. The chef has a but of a rep around town and sure does a good fish and chips.

I arrived in Tutukaka a few hours before Cyclone Pam in March so I feel a bit guilty trying to write a review. That said, the staff, specifically the bar restaurant staff were terrific holding fort through very trying conditions. I had torpedo shrimp (from the appetizer menu) and it was terrific. That said, I found the room a little... More

Friendly staff, comfortable rooms, great location by the marina - what's not to like? Feels like it has been updated fairly recently with smart and functional bed rooms, good bathroom facilities and a buzzing bar. Particularly appreciated the German (?) receptionist who was friendly and helpful with a relaxing, easy going manner. Would have loved a marina view, but that... More

We had a fabulous weekend at Oceans - our room was wonderfully clean, had a view over the marina and had a balcony! The staff went out of their way to ensure we had a delightful stay. Our continetal breakfast was very good. Thank you Oceans

Amazing place to stay and recharge! The staff couldn't be more helpful and the food in the restaurant was some of the best we have ever had! Without shadow of a doubt this place is amazing for a getaway.

This is a fantastic base, if you are planning to dive the Poor Knights Islands – which was well worthwhile. We stayed here two nights. The hotel is quiet, spacious and comfortable. Tutukaka itself seems very pleasant but tiny; however, both the dive shop ‘Dive! Tutukaka’ (which I would recommend) and a couple of decent restaurants are within a minute's... More

I found this hotel quite nice. The staffs were friendly. The location was good. I stayed in the 2 bedrooms apartment. It was clean enough and cozy. Overall, it was a good place to stay. But I found the surrounding areas were not so attractive. I would rather go to somewhere else.

We arrived early evening on a very chilly night, so the couches by the fire for pre- dinner drinks were perfect. Restaurant itself was a little chilly but needing to have the full glass overlooking the marina that can't be helped. Meal was amazing - thoughtfully put together and cooked and presented well. It was difficult to choose what to... More
