On entering and talking to reception I gradually got the feeling that the staff were not very helpful or enthusiastic. Booked for a night but my wife who is from Taiwan became uneasy as when we went to the restaurant to get coffee we had to call some staff who seemed preoccupied for the evening event than serving us. We... More

On January 31st my wife and I attended a wedding ceremony at Formosa Auckland Country Club and stayed overnight. Unfortunately the service we received from the caterers and staff at the resort during stay was hugely disappointing. Hopefully these this may help for future better setup for this beautiful huge resort. The resort is a beautiful place and hopefully the... More

The room was dirty, cob webs everywhere, lots of stains on the pillows and the couch which I really don't want to think what it was from 😖 They... More

We stayed along with a group of friends attending a wedding at the Resort. Our villa was lovely and clean, very spacious and had a huge bathroom for getting ready! Overall the resort is very tired, needs some money spent and some good tlc to get it up to standard. The villas themselves had vanish peeling from window sills, paint... More

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

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

Our spa bath did not work either. We went down for a buffet breakfast the next morning and everything was stone cold... More
