We booked this resort for one night during a trip around the North Island. Our primary purpose was to see Cathedral Cove. What a surprise! We arrived just before sunset in the lovely town of Whitianga. The beach was stunning. We suddenly realized that this place deserved a longer stay. We arrived to a smiling, friendly resort manager. She had... More

Unfortunately, we stayed her only for one day. It was a luxurious apartment, developed on the floor. On the ground floor there is a garage, washing machine and dryer, and two bedroom. On the first floor, one additional bedroom, bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, a very comfortable hall, with TV, spacious sofa and a bar, and a wonderful terrace. Free wifi,... More

Awesome, fully equipped apartments, and top notch hospitality made for a peaceful weekend away from the big smoke..Less than a 5 minute walk to the beach and has its own little pathway to the Lost Springs. Definitely recommended, will be back!

We visited mid-winter and after a drive up from Wellington wanted a comfortable base for 4 days in the Coromandel. We found Oceans Resort on Booking.com and the reviews were good. Arriving late we were warmly greeted by Pamela. Knowing we'd just arrived she didn't give us the normal tourist overview, rather got us prepared for our apartment straight away.... More

We stayed in a lovely little 2 bed house at this resort. We were lucky and had an ocean view from the living room and balcony. There were laundry facilities and even an outdoor clothes line.  Everything was immaculate. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and the resort was in a quiet spot so we got a great nights... More

We had the most amazing week stay at Oceans Resort. It was super cold the week we visited but our 3 level apartment was cosy the whole time. There were even electric blankets on the beds which we loved. The kids had a great time at the beach and the onsite playground, we also took the ferry over to Cooks... More

Decided upon a weekend getaway drive around Coromandel, and opted for Oceans Resort instead of a motel. WOW - fully self-contained with full kitchen; two bedrooms (we only needed one); two minutes walk across the road to Buffalo Beach and just a couple minutes drive to supermarkets, restaurants etc. Staff were A1 - EXCELLENT. One night was not enough -... More

We have stayed here twice and love the apartments. They are modern and warm and fully self contained. We always visit in winter and make sure we pop next door to the Lost Spring. Good value for money too!

My daughter recommended this property and having stayed I can understand why! We were given a 2 story town home with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one with a bath tub - not that common in many hotels), a kitchen, living and laundry room. It was immaculate, the hosts were very welcoming and helpful and understanding of the fact that we... More
