Situated on the sheltered side of pilot Bay and at the foot of Mount Maunganui The Capri is spacious well appointed immaculately clean and full of everything you need to make your stay thoroughly enjoyable. Check in was great and extremely helpful staff. Covered parking available which is great. My only complaint is that we didn't stay longer!!

Stayed here for two nights and found the accomodation to be clean spacious and comfortable. Location superb, really handy for exploring the Mount and the nearby Restaurants. The pool was a real bonus for our children who enjoyed a swim every evening. All in all excellent.

We had room 9 with a view of a the bay. Great two bedroom apartment with all that we could need. Lovely little balcony and well decorated. As we travelled with family, having seen the other two apartments, ours was definitely the nicest. Rooms not on the front do appear to be smaller. (Rooms facing the Mount) Would just recommend...

If you are looking to self-cater and settle in for a few days, the Capri is a good option. Laundry facilities in the room were very welcome and the TV was a bonus. The kitchen is well-appointed and there is enough cooking equipment to turn out a proper meal for the family. But some basics like cling wrap, foil etc... More

We selected this accommodation based on Trip Adviser, albeit the management responses to previous comments almost put us off! Too defensive. The good is the location, the little gym and little pool and the secure parking. The kids also loved the Sky Movie range. The things you need to factor in are the additional cost of sundries such as toilet... More

Had a 1 night for 4 people in a double bed and double bathroom 2 level apartment. Lovely clean accommodation with 50 channels of sky TV one of the most I have ever seen in any hotel accommodation. Very quiet and very close to the beach and harbour and restaurants. Lovely sleep and would stay here again.

This was our 5th time stopping at the Capri and will also be our last.apt 16 was tired and needing some updating,the sofa and chair smelly and dirty and too uncomfortable to sit on, we had to sit at the dining table. Love the location but this is not a cheap option and some refurbishment of the apts is necessary.

Very nice motel. Great location - easy walk to beach, The Mount and shops. Well appointed. Very clean and tidy. Nice swimming pool - heated. Efficiently managed. No hassle when we asked for a late checkout. Wi-fi by paid plan only. Wi-fi should be offered free these days!

Close to both the main beach and the Mt. Quick 5 minute walk to the main shopping centre. Clean and the staff are very helpful. Hot pools accross the road and the Mt itself is well worth the walk up! Great views and good excercise.........
