We stayed here over the weekend of the Scallop Festival in a two bedroom apartment. I can highly recommend these as a place to stay. The apartments were set up with everything you could reasonably expect and more, with a very well set up kitchen, Sky TV, books, board games you name it! Very comfortable beds, and two bathrooms which... More

We stayed in Unit 65 with two bed-rooms (one double bed ad one twin-beds), two bathrooms, a well-equipped kitchen, a nice dining room and a washing machine (but no dryer), the service is great while the staff is friendly.

We have stayed here twice. Modern, well appointed apartments, friendly and helpful management and staff. Located 50 metres down driveway. Great location, within walking distance of the beach and shopping area.

Full apartment with everything you need. Very close to everything, including the beach (we were lucky enough to have sea views). Very welcoming managers, and very knowledgeable about local tourist spots. It's the one down the driveway, not the motel on the road front - can be confusing. Will definitely be back. Also has swimming pool and tennis courts.

Located 50 metres down the drive is this amazing resort with awesome fully self catering units with a great modern flare, ideal for families or that quiet romantic get away. Super close to the beach and shops not far either. Warm friendly atmosphere and top notch service. My family had the best time and would recommend to anyone.

Just great, excellent accommodation, very friendly, couldn't do enough for us. 5 star plus! (Be careful to go the extra 50 yards down to OCEAN'S Resort reception, otherwise the inferior motel in front will try and poach you).

We stayed one night in the apartment. The one-bedroom apartment was well furnished and clean. We requested for a room with free Wifi and was arranged one. The kitchen was well-equipped with cooking utensils though we did not cook but had our dinner at the local restaurant called 'Squids Bar & Restaurant' that served tasty seafood. We made use of...

oceans18, Manager at Oceans Resort Whitianga, responded to this review

Hi Ronnie - thanks for your review. Because we run on hot water cylinders we rely on power to heat the water, rather than gas. This means the hot water in the tank is all there is - once used up, you then have to wait for the power to re-heat the water. Just like a jug takes time to... More
