5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

Travelling as a family of 5 we often have our youngest sleeping on a fold-out bed. Not so at Aloha. Very comfortable, great games room, courtyard dining with bbq supplied, cheapest washing machine and dryer in the north... Ticked all the boxes. Thanks Aloha.

We Stayed in a two bedroom upstairs apartment at Aloha Seaview Resort Motel. The Apartment was well equiped with plenty of space for two adults and two teenagers. The balcony has scenic views of bay and is very pleasant to relax on with a drink. The pool, spa and games room were all well maintained and very enjoyable. The property area to quite large and gives it a nice resort feel.

Parking was haphazard and on a 'first in first served basis', this meant your car could be quite away from your unit.

Staying at Aloha Seaview Resort Motel enhanced our bay of islands experience.

Our third stay at the Aloha, and as usual, a very pleasant one. The rooms have recently been updated and as with our previous stays, we had no problems or issues. A great place to stay in Paihia, especially at the price.

It's one of the only few motels situated not at the main road, I believe the only one that is enough isolated to give you feeling of being in the nature, in peace and quiet. The same time it's only 15min walk to the beach front in Paihia.
W had initially booked 1br garden apartment. It was situated in the ground floor of the separate building, the one most to the south. 2 units downstairs and owners apartment upstairs gave a feeling of privacy. In front of the door was lovely wooden patio and rolling down hill so we had unobstructed view of the bay. Kitchen, dining and living area are spacious, bedroom had queen and single bed, small desk and closet. Bathroom was small with separate toilet and curtain shower, adequate for us. What made us completely puzzled where two separate faucets for cold and hot water but apparently this is very common in New Zealand. The only downside was a kitchen. We cook a lot ourselves and usually have plenty of bottles , bags, etc, like with running full kitchen. Unfortunately there were only 2 drawers and the 3 cabinets already filed with cutlery and utensils, very difficult to storage anything. And of course again 2 faucets:-)
After 3 days we changed the room to 2bedrooms on the 1st floor, overlooking swimming pool. This was bigger apartment and except second bedroom is had bigger bathroom with walk in shower, kitchen counter was longer and we had terrace with another table and chairs. But despite kitchen being a bit bigger there was even less storage space. The good thing was much bigger fridge and modern combine hot-cold water faucet.
The pool is a decent size for splashing and short swims, with BBQ next to and sun-chairs to lie down on. The owners are very nice and willing to book tours for you or tell you more about attractions. The only minus of our stay was the price, it was over the Christmas and New Year and the price for the 2br apartment was very high. But maybe it's normal in Paihia.
Overall- highly recommended for those who are not keen on being squeezed in the middle of busy beach town but still want to be in few minutes distance from it. Very good for families.
Suggestion for owners- please do something about the kitchen storage space.

Room Tip: Ask for garden ground floor in a south building if younneed no more than 1 bedroom

We stayed 4 nights in December and had a great time.
Cosy little hotel with all amenities.
Very nice hosts, clean and warm pool, hot tub to relax, and fully equipped rooms.
Not as loud and crowded as the oceanside hotels.
Perfect starting point for all walks in the area.

Thanks a lot.

If you don't stay here you've missed out big time! We spent the first evening sitting on our balcony 'gobsmacked' at the view and sunset. Fractionally outside Paiha (10 mins downhill - slightly longer coming home!) it is lovely and quiet so a good nights sleep is ensured (only bush behind) We had a large studio that lacked nothing with a separate bedroom with plenty of drawer and wardrobe space so you could properly unpack. There is a lovely swimming pool, hot tub, laundry facilities, games room and plenty car parking. Stacy and Jason were the very best of hosts, we only wish we were likely to be able to stay again. Happy birthday Stacy.

Room Tip: Upstairs certainly gets the views
