We've stayed a couple of nights when a family member's wedding was held her a few years ago and we loved the place. Our entire wedding party stayed in the chalets and we really enjoyed it then. Since that stay, we have visited Formosa a couple more times, usually taking visitors to Auckland for a round of golf and then... More

Stayed 2 nights as wedding guests. Both the chalet we stayed in and the banquet facility were clean but tired. Poor hot water supply to shower with some facilities such as the spa bath and bathroom door not working at all. Not told at check-in, that the restaurant had been booked out by a previous day wedding party and because... More

Stayed for a weekend. A very nice place for a weekend retreat but we were not happy that we could not use the restaurant as we were told it was booked out.Our unit needed a bit of TLC. Our spa bath did not work either. We went down for a buffet breakfast the next morning and everything was stone cold... More

I was a bit reluctant to go here after reading the reviews but was pleasantly surprised. The room was very spacious, clean and had a good layout. The view from our room was great. We did not try the food but the room and location was good.

We went to dinner at the restaurant in this complex last week for a birthday celebration. The menu was full of really good choices and the food was really nice Service was great, only thing was they did not wait very long between courses, and we felt a bit rushed. This place does not seem to cater for diners after... More

We had a dinner/stay/breakfast package given to us as a birthday gift. Friends joined us for dinner too. The staff managed to muck up drinks orders 3 times, soup was luke warm and very small portion, steak was cooked just right but wrong sort, beans were cold to the point of almost being chilled. Limited vegetarian options. Had to wait... More

Read reviews and talked to people out in Beachlands who suggested that Formosa was rundown. Was pleasantly surprised to find that the Executive Villa was huge, comfortable, clean and very well presented. It also had golf course and sea views. I also utilised the free fitness centre, swimming pool and indoor tennis courts. I got all this using a $99... More

Attended a wedding with my retired parents who need had time to get out n about so a family outing with all extended families was something everyone was looking forward too. The staff/owners need to get the basics of customer services first, prior to wedding we had no one come around and offer drinks to the guests, guests were left... More
