We booked a 2 bedroom villa which was very nice but the service was so below par I would not recommend to anyone - they had a perc for coffee but no bags; no dishwashing stuff/tea towels/wiping cloths; 2 soup for 4 adults; 8 milk; but worst of all no information on the resort; how to find the spa/swimming pools;...

We managed to score a room over the NZ waitangi long weekend and got a two bedroom apartment with a massive balcony over looking the whole of Palm Bay. Lovely! There was heaps of space, 1 King, 1 Queen and 1 fold out double sofa which looked straight out to the ocean. Small kitchen with a fridge and dishwasher too.... More

Great ride over to this lovely Island. Lots of shops & restaurants. Many things to do. We went to the winery on the eastern side & really enjoyed ourselves. Could have easily spent the whole day here. Our bus/tour guide Daniel was awesome. He was very knowledgeable & helpful for the limited time we had.

Only stayed for one night but the rooms were spacious, clean, dry, light and modern. I think we may have been in a room that had just recently been renovated as everything was new. Lovely views of the sea and nice big bedrooms with comfy beds. Only niggle was that there was no cutlery or teatowels but not a major.

The Waiheke Island Resort had just undergone renovations when we had stayed there in Dec 2015. The renovations were very nice, I think once these are complete the resort will be very gorgeous. The staff was very accommodating and our room was very clean and comfortable. There were great views of the ocean from our room, and it looked like... More

2 stars only because the view was nice. People stomping upstairs vibrated thru our unit keeping us awake. Disorganised service no towels for swimming pool. Swearing builders as the place was being renovated. Rock hard bed. No food. Not happy. Way too expensive.

When you pay this type of money for accommodation you have certain expectations, unfortunately these were not met. Due to "renovations" and a pool party planned for the next day, our stay at this "resort" was somewhat interrupted. When you are away from town with no vehicle and the restaurant is not in service due to aforementioned renovations, it makes... More

Our experience of the Waiheke Resort has been terrible. We had read the online reviews and were therefore in two minds about using the resort, but initial conversations assured us that they were going to be able to provide quality accommodation for our wedding. We had several email conversations about the accommodation and what would be available for our guests.... More

A family gathering from all over NZ necessitated a group booking. I booked a Studio apartment with twin beds. The illustration looked spacious - not so! Small deck with ONE chair, smallish lounge but ok for 2 people. However for the tariff I definitely would have expected free wifi - not so! The TV didn't work and there was NO... More

With 18 people travelling to NZ - Waiheke, we required good accommodation within close proximity; the resort fit the bill and the budget for a peak period. Like ChrisP from Christchurch stated in his review, it is very hilly & mountain goat stamina is a minimum requirement. Over our 4 x days, we found the staff to be more than... More
