“Great apartment in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

We stayed for 10 days in one of the front apartments, and it was great. The standard of accommodation is excellent and the location opposite the beach and only five minutes walk to a lot of shops and restaurants made this place work very well for the varied interests of our little group .... From grandma to 12 year olds, it has everything. Nice pool to. Mike was excellent and pointed us in the right direction when we needed to know how to get somewhere. Last but not least, as a New Zealand beach resort it is very hard or beat.

Stayed December 2012, traveled with family

We spent 2 nights in one of the 3 bedroom apartments with sea views. We have travelled extensively round New Zealand, and this was one of the best places we have stayed in! The apartment was very comfortable and well-equipped, and our young daughters loved the pool and the easy access to the beach. Mike and Claire were charming and very helpful, even helping to carry our mountain of luggage up to our room! We loved the little touches such as the board games available to borrow. The stand-out memory is the view from our apartment - we could have sat all day on the balcony just looking out at the sea! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: We had a 2nd floor apartment at the front, from which the sea views were beautiful.

We stayed two nights in a very comfortable, spacious and well-equipped one-bedroom apartment. The location is very convenient and both Mike and his daughter were extremely helpful with local knowledge and friendliness. Among the best of a dozen hotels and apartments we stayed in duing a month-long driving tour of New Zealand, and excellent value for money

We used Belle Mer as our wedding accomodation. Mike was very helful and always nice to us. The first night we stayed in one of the 3 bedroom appartments with the girls and it was great. The Jacuzzi was amazing and was a great way to relax the night before the big one. And then after the wedding we stayed in one of the top appartments - I just remember the comfortable bed, and everything was sweet and nice and clean. Will happily stay their again :)
Thank you Mike and the team

We stayed in the penthouse apartment and were absolutely blown away by the stunning view before us. The perfect place to be as busy as you want or just kick back, relax and enjoy your surroundings. The 3 bedroom apartment is spacious. The beds are very comfortable with beautiful quality linen and bedding. Everything else was in perfect order. The location is great with the beach across the road and an easy walk (a couple of blocks) to the town centre. Mike and Claire were a pleasure to deal with and made checking in and out easy. It was very hard to leave but we are already looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: Go for the Penthouse - you will not be disappointed!

My husband and two sons stayed here for a motor x event at the weekend. The resort is easy to find and is on the main road with a wonderful outlook to the ocean.

We had a two bedroom apartment on the ground floor as the children wanted to be close to the pool. The apartments are very clean and tidy and have everything that you could want.

The boys loved the 20 degrees of the pool and loved the HUGE bath even more!

The resort itself was nice and quiet and the managers lovely and friendly.

A wonderful relaxing place to stay with a nice short walk into town.

Would stay again without hesitation.

Mike was very warm, welcoming and friendly, a beautiful apartment and awesome spa, the comfiest bed ever and the best duvet in the world! Very hard to get up in the mornings.
Lovely very spacious unit with nice balcony and glimpses of the ocean (when weather allowed it....) Only a short walk to shops and cafes.
Highly recommendable place to stay.
