We travelled as a couple and stayed four nights at the Puaikura Reef Lodges.
We stayed in room 7 - opposite the pool. We were very happy with the cleanliness of the room; spotless really! Seeing as there were only two of us - we had pleanty of room (two extra single beds were not used in the living room). The rooms were physically up -to-date; only the shower seemed a little run down - but it didn't worry us in the slightest.
The staff were amazingly helpful and friendly and helped us with booking anything we needed - this truely made our trip that much more enjoyable.
Location: GREAT! You are situated just across the road from a beautiful beach and there is also a small food shop/gas station/takeaways right next door to the lodges - which is a huge positive.
This accommodation definately has a 'family atmosphere' - and would be great for those travelling in a group. We enjoyed interacting with the other guests/travellers - but keep in mind that if you are looking for a less 'busy' style of accommodation, this may not be your cup of tea.
Overall we found this accommodation to be of a high standard, with cleanliness, location and staff being our main highlight of the overall rating.
