    We have had the good fortune to have been to many of the worlds great resorts and so we have plenty to compare with. The price was so reasonable we were concerned that something may be less than it appeared on the web site. We were surprised to find it was way better! The most fabulous food, wine and service...

    We spent a week at Carrington Resort on the Karikari peninsula. Of the many beautiful places we've seen in New Zealand, the view from our townhouse villa really was stunning. 180 degrees vista of nothing but nature, beach and ocean. I've never been anywhere like it! This is a small, boutique resort with only a small number of apartments on... More

    We stayed for a week here between Christmas and New Year. We booked a villa for five for the family. It is a beautiful place with views over the golf course to the sea and white sand dunes. The villa was well laid out, very clean, slightly dated appliances but otherwise very nice. We ate a few times at the... More

    We were looking forward to a lovely weekend away. We booked to stay for a night. The hotel is far away from anywhere so we planned to relax at the hotel & eat all meals there.

    I was really impressed when we drove up to the resort with beautiful grounds, the rooms were tidy & well supplied. Overall the food experience could improve, both dinner at the pizzeria & breakfast the next morning were poor although the waiter was great.

    The room was really nice and quiet with a view of a golf course. I booked it on line and it was not what I expected. It was several kilometers from Kaitaia and did not have cooking facilities.
