Very nice apartment-style accommodations. Dated late-1990s construction and remodeling, but impeccably maintained and managed. Right across street from beach, 5 minute stroll from touristy shops and restaurants, 12 minute walk along beach to get to Mt. Maunganui itself for a lovely 270-degree stroll overlooking the sea and bay. Has full kitchen, heated towel rack, en suite washer-dryer, secure if cramped... More

Our family of five stayed in the three bedroom penthouse and cannot speak highly enough of this accommodation. There is not a single criticism to be made. All aspects of this accommodation were delightful - absolute waterfront outlook, close proximity to restaurants and shops, perfectly comfortable bedding, superbly equipped kitchen and bathrooms (with additional towels etc if needed), great pool,...

We stayed (my mum, sister and three young teens) in the three bedroom penthouse. Was truly fabulous - really well appointed and just lovely! Admittedly a few issues with the lift but not a challenge for those of us who are younger, although it was for my partially disabled mother. Close to everything, kids loved the pool while we happily... More

We stayed on Spec, in a twin room appartment. It was fully fitted and close to the shops and restaurants, as well as the beach and Mount. Very friendly and helpful service, made this a great two day stay.

We stayed for two nights with friends from Sydney and enjoyed this well equipped nicely designed Apartment. We stayed on the ground floor unit right on the waterfront. The apartment had great views from the lounge especially when standing! If you want views when you are seated go to the second or third floors. We liked having our own street... More

My family and I were very happy with the room. It was very spacious and my daughters had a lot of room to play. It was clean and the kitchen had everything you need to cook a meal. It great to have the ocean so close and close walking distance to town.

We went off peak and the rooms are great...we were upgraded so that always makes you come away feeling good. Very well appointed, the most amazing spa bath. Only negative, was hard to warm the place up.

Stayed last weekend as a family (3 generations) in two bedroom, two bathroom apartment on 3rd floor with a side view towards Papamoa. Good basement parking and appreciated easy lift access to apartment for wheelchair. We enjoyed the large open living/dining/kitchen area and great facilities for meal preparation - everything we needed. Pool was lovely and warm and as the... More

The location and service are good, but the king bed was terrible. We could see the bend in the bed before we got in. The two of us couldn't sleep in it together so one of us slept in the spare single. We couldn't get the spa bath working either (daughter very disappointed). Overall I was disappointed with the venue.... More

We stayed here in late February 2014 on the first floor and were very pleased with the accommodations, the amenities, and the service. We asked for a late check out and we paid to have an extra half day until 4 pm. Our flight was delayed and the manager allowed us to stay without further charges until almost 6 pm.... More
