From the moment we set foot at Beachfront Resort, we had fallen in love with it. Everything was almost brand new although the resort is around 10 yrs old. The owners take great pride in providing high quality products and service. The furnishings are simply lovely. The utensils and cutlery are of very good quality. Shampoo and liquid soap are... More

The hosts were most helpful and the... More

Only stayed two nights and could easily have stayed longer! A lovely garden right on a beautiful beach. Well appointed apartment which was clean and comfortable. Owners were helpful. The view out over the bay was Beautiful. Not remembering anything negative so will leave it there.

As soon as we arrived my son found a spider on his pillow. Gross and not a good way to start the visit. Then, we found ants... More

We decided to see the North first because of the stunning beaches. It was beautiful. This beach hotel was the best location, stunning beach right in front of our room. Loved the BBQ, so nice to cook our own fish and take a break from eating out as we tired of restaurant food. The owners were the best host and... More

This was our last major stop in NZ. We turned up for a one night stay and promptly booked a second. The room was clean and tidy with all the amenities we had come to expect from a good motel in NZ. The shower was first class and the we come onto the location. WOW! Literally right on the beach!... More

Highly recommend the Beachfront Resort in Whitianga! It was bliss, from the moment we walked through the door of our unit and saw the view to the beach just in front it was WOW. So wonderful to be right on the beach, and have the spa, BBQ area, loungers ... so well set out. Our upstairs unit was lovely -... More

Stayed for Labour weekend in a lovely bright clean newly refurbished unit right on Buffalo beach. The garden has direct beach access and the barbecue and bar area is ideal for breakfast or sundowners. Very friendly owner who gave us ideas for walks, boat trips and restaurants.
