Belle Mer's location is fantastic - great views over the beach to the Mount, and just a short walk into the main street. However, at $500 a night for the 3-br penthouse it's not cheap - and we think there are a few little things the managers could do to help make the experience match the price. We found it... More

Stayed at Belle Mer Apartments for three nights. Wish it could have been longer. The apartment was large and very clean. Probably the only fault we could find is that I didn't know that it had bunk beds in one room and as we are all adults it was a little hard. Still probably my fault I should have asked... More

My hubby was taking part in the sand to surf ocean swim, so these appartments were chosen because of their location. We stayed in a one bed apartment, very nice, really spacious. Had a dip in the pool, lovely and warm especially after a dip in the sea. My only regret was that we didn't book a two night stay.... More

Stayed at the Belle Mer Apartments over the weekend and were very pleased with the 2 bedroom apartment that we stayed in. Apartment beautiful and clean, well equipped kitchen and big bathroom. Terrace had lovely views of the sea and beach. Great location only 5 minute walk to town and beach right across the road. Only minus point was that... More

Although the reservation process via the visitors bureau for our party of 18 proved precarious -- emails lost etc -- and needed a lot of repeat communication and phone calls, the three apartments were superbly equipped for families and very well maintained. Pricey, but the beach front location is just superb and the pubs and cafes around the corner do... More

We stayed in apartment 2C for a week or so, and were very pleased with the space, the well-equipped kitchen, and the big bathroom. The manager, Mike, was very helpful, and gave us lots of info about the area. The view over the sea was lovely, and the apartment block well situated. We paid for wifi, and the connection speed...

A lovely apartment in a superb location directly opposite the beach with uninterrupted views. Well appointed rooms with comfortable beds and everything you need for luxury living. The manager was very friendly and helpful. Parking was underground, so cars are safely off the road. Close to the main shopping centre near the Mount and plenty of eating places to choose... More

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
