A nice tidy room, stunning views, I have a few complaints, as a non smoker I did not appreciate seeing two full ashtrays sitting on the table in the outside bar area, they looked like they hadn't been emptied for sometime. The food was very average. The barman had no idea of the geography of the place and could not... More

Lovely location and friendly staff. Unfortunately the accommodation was rather poor, found it unusual to have the microwave sitting on the table away from the kitchen bench. The bathrooms were disgusting, shower's full of mould as was the toilet. Our rubbish bin in the bathroom looked like it had been chewed numerous times by maybe the local dog. A lot... More

This was a really fantastic accommodation choice we stayed in a studio apartment which was so beautiful and had a little balcony that looked out over the trees and a little bit of the ocean. The room itself was perfect size - spacious with kitchen space to self cater, tv, air con, really nice bathroom and ironing board etc. Unfortunately... More

I was really upset that the pool had substandard gates that did not swing shut and lock. The gate had to be opened with some difficulty as the top latch was broken - it was a rusty bolt. Once open it had to be manually shut and locked as the child lock was broken. I told the staff that I... More

Hi Lynley, Thank you for your review. Apologies if you did not feel your concerns about the pool gates were not taken seriously by the staff. We are waiting on the delivery for the new gates and fence and hope that this would be installed this week. Unfortunately tennis balls do go missing a lot, not having a sporting good... More

This place has amazing potential but the staff were rude and unhelpful. Our room was not made up, with sheets and towels just dumped on the beds. We found uncovered duvets in the cupboard. The kitchen coffees etc were depleted and not replaced. Reception closes at 5 and the after hours number only had an answer phone. When we mentioned... More

A week long conference at the resort mean that we can truly comment on the food - amazing quality. Go there just for this and the views from the restaurant. The facilities are beginning to look a little run down but all was forgiven because of the service, location and restaurant.

We stayed in a two bedroom villa - very spacious and nice big deck with a view over Palm Beach and trees. I'd recommend this place for groups and families, with a swimming pool and tennis courts there's plenty to keep everyone entertained. It's only a 5 min walk from the beach, we had a swim and there were kayaks... More

Stayed here to attend a wedding at Ti Toki retreat. The location excellent for this but we were somewhat disappointed in the standard of the villa we stayed in - didn't live up to the description & photos on website. Room was clean but standard of glassware & crockery poor. Fridge needed defrosting as chugged its way through the night!!... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in ealy January. We did not realize that the property is managed/owned by two separate companies. The company that managed our unit was Waiheke Unlimited. We were surprised to find out that there was a swimming pool at the facility but only the guests who booked through the other management have... More

This resort has the potential to be wonderful but the place is a little uncared for in places.Built overlooking Palm Beach on Waiheke Island, the rooms have great views but are sparsely furnished. Cleaning seems to get a lick and a spit. Our room had a previous guest's fruit bagel left on the top shelf of the cupboard and the... More
