We spent two nights at the Beachfront Resort this past week. We arrived a bit before check in time and our room was ready for us. This place was a dream location for our son - with beachfront access, a trampoline and a hot tub available for guest use, he was a happy camper :-). The views from the rooms... More

Stayed here with my daughter on a mother daughter weekend for two nights, couldn't fault it. Hosts very friendly, such a gorgeous spot right on the beach. Also two lovely cats. Great place to stay if you want to just chill out as they have loungers and a BBQ, spa pool. Also beach toys.

Friendliest, cleanest and super beach front accommodation that we have ever stayed in. A real shame we couldn't stay longer. We would certainly holiday at the Beachfront resort again. Kitchen was very well laid out, certainly didn't have to search for any thing, it was just there. Plenty of space and very comfortable bedding. Thanks heaps Kate.

We were only at the Beachfront Resort for one night and wish we would have stayed much longer to enjoy the beautiful beach just steps from the hotel. We stayed in the unit that didn't have a beach view but it was wonderful. Comfortable beds with a nicely stocked kitchen. Kayaks and spades for your use (the spades are for... More

Our 2 night stay with friends from Christchurch who, like ourselves, thought the accommodation, very friendly staff and easy beach access led to a very enjoyable time at the resort. Would definitely visit again. Beautiful garden, with spa pool, safe easy parking, beautiful beach,conveniently situated to Whitianga town.

Fantastic room, ground floor, straight out into the garden (With Jacuzzi), on to the beach, walk down the sand into the Ocean - Doesn't get much better? Well in a way it does, the room was really well appointed, nice bed, chairs, settee etc all the kitchen bits were of top quality. The hosts were really good and very helpful... More

110% newly refurbished accommodation, with everything you could wish for, location perfect,out of room onto a beautiful garden and then onto a fantastic beach. Easy parking, warm and friendly welcome from helpful hosts. Close to many great attractions so a good base from which to explore. Wished we could have stayed longer, highly recommend!

What a great place to stay for our last 3 nights of a six week car trip! The location of this Hotel is in my opinion the best on the Peninsula close to Restaurants, gas and Food but not too close! The only place I found in area that is truly ocean front.

We booked a five night stay at the Beachfront Resort at the end of a five week holiday in New Zealand. What a treat. The upstairs apartment (no 5) was lovely. Everything you need with a great shower, kitchen, comfy bed, the use of a washing machine, and a view to die for. Both Paul & Kate are lovely and... More
