Very helpful when booking for our group, and asking for info re transport down to local social scene.
Lovely and quiet all night long.
Views were stunning, and pools etc were great - but no-one else in our group had togs )-8
The walk down to the private beach was great and well maintained which must be a challenge. Beach fabulous!!
All in our select group thoroughly impressed by the complete set-up!
Would go again.

Room Tip: We had a 3 bedroom to help keep costs down and it was great. 2 couples and a solo, so it worked rea...

Excellent views for budget prices. Definitely Recommend anyone to go to this place, it's not just a place which provides accommodation but a site seeing and a tourist spot as well because of the great views and the location it's in.

Super location, beautiful well kept gardens. Be very careful which unit you book as a lot have been refurbished but there are still units requiring refurbishment. We had originally booked Unit 20 after a telephone conversation asking for one of the better units. Upon arrival we were told that Unit 20 had a problem with one of the beds and were given the keys to Unit 21. Unit 21 requires an overhaul to bring it into this decade. The only positives were the wonderful views from the unit and the other facilities at Pacific Rendezvous. We had originally booked for 2 nights but cancelled one night after experience in this unit. It is a 3 bedroom run which would sleep 7 if all of the beds were used. There is only one small bathroom which also contains the only toilet. Two of the 3 bedrooms are full with the beds so there is very little room to move in them. The kitchen is very small and does not have good lighting. Overall not the experience we were wanting.

Room Tip: Ask for an updated unit

While we are taking your concerns on board, we do feel your comments are very harsh. We do agree the unit needs some upgrading which is already on our refurbishment schedule, but it is not as bad as the description you have given it. As I explained we are continuously improving this wonderful product we have here and our record on Trip Advisor speaks for itself. The owner of Unit 21 is very concerned by your experience and is doing everything possible to add that X factor to improve their apartment to meet our high standard.

The views are to die for, totally professional staff, awesome private beach and a great pool if you don't like the ocean, did I mention the views? Nice and tidy unit with the best views.
Will be booking for a week next trip.

Room Tip: Room 17 has the best view

On a private, spacious, elevated point of land overlooking Tutukaka Harbour and it's heads out into the Pacific Ocean, is the Pacific Rendezvous complex. The view from here is simply breathtaking, particularly for those who love sea and coastal panoramas. This is an ideal place to chill-out. Our unit, was a little tired but is to be refurbished shortly, was spacious, comfortable and very well equipped. The lounge opened out onto a sunny deck, with outdoor furniture, overlooking the harbour below. This is perfect for reading, sunbathing, meals and entertaining family and friends. The management are friendly, helpful and welcoming. The complex is immaculately presented and it is an absolute pleasure to stay here. Breakfast in your room is available. Although there is no restaurant on site there are several good restaurants in the village which is just a few minutes drive away. There is a stylish swimming pool with sun loungers, spa and a games/television room available. A path leads from the resort down the hillside through the bush to the beach below. Overall staying at the Pacific Rendezvous is a memorable experience

Lovely quite spot with a spectacular view. Lovely hosts too very helpful. Make sure you take your food as this is self catering accomodation and there is only one decent restaurant in Tutukaka, which can get expensive.

Take a good book and some DVDs food and your set for a very relaxing time away!

Room Tip: They are all awesome rooms.

The location of the motel was idyllic with wonderful views of the coastline and islands that must rank with the best. Accomodation of a very high standard and warm welcome received on arrival. Would certainly recommend to family & friends. We do suggest that you fill up with fuel before arriving at Tutukaka as the price charged locally is extortionate.
