“Great Family Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

We stayed here for 4 nights in the new year. Travelling with 5 children. Plenty for the kids to do, and keep them occupied, while we relaxed a little (with this amount of kids, there isnt a lot of relaxing happening). Really nice outlook, safe and clean pool. The hosts were really helpful, with excellent local knowledge. The room, was a 2 bedroom appartment, and big enough for all of us.

We had a large modern garden view (actually parking lot) room away from the pool. We like this location for the quiet and privacy. The units on this side have nice large semi-enclosed courtyards. The management is quite good and friendly. It is a little out of town but only a 15 min. walk. The wifi worked well. The afternoon sun made the room a bit warm but the large glass doors helped it to cool down fast.

Room Tip: There were quite a few families with kids so if you want a quiet and more private room ask for a roo...

On arrival we found we had been upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment - lovely surprise. Our room was large and airy, clean and modern with the kitchen extremely well equipped. The furniture was clean and comfortable. The balcony overlooked the pool and had a fantastic view of the Bay of Islands.
The pool was a good size, temperature and was clean with lots of sun loungers. We used the games room ( table tennis, pin-ball, computer, books etc), the play area and trampoline and the wash facilities ( washer and dryer -were good value). The hot tub was relaxing.
The owners arranged our dolphin trip for us and we were collected from the motel.
It was an easy 10minute walk into town ( uphill on the way back) and a quiet location. The supermarket was the opposite end of town so we did drive there but it was not far.
We wish we could have stayed longer than the 2 days we had here!

Room Tip: the rooms overlooking the pool have the best views

Stayed 4 nights in late April and used it as a base for exploring the region. Had a 2 bedroom unit which was very comfortable.
The hosts were very helpful and the facilities were very good. Even had a game of pool and table tennis in the games room.
A bonus was having free wifi as I had to do a bit of computer work.
A nice spot which I would recommend and stay at again.

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in early march 2013. The owners work hard to keep their property at a good standard and I woul have no hesitation in recommending this property based on our very positive experience. We particularly enjoyed relaxing by the pool and using the Spa in the evening after long days of sightseeing in the area. The apartment was of a good size with a well equipped kitchen. The bedroom was clean and comfortable.
The entrance is on the crest of a hill near a corner so be aware or like me you could miss it on the first attempt.

We recently stayed at the Aloha Sea view Resort Motel. We found the apartment to be very clean and tastefully furnished. The bed was comfortable, the shower was excellent. The hosts were friendly. There was a small pool and hot tub, which very lovely. Our apartment had a balcony with a spectacular view across the bay. We really enjoyed our stay. Definitely better than staying in the town, although only a short distance away.We would strongly this accommodation.

Room Tip: A balcony room with sea view

Stayed there for 2 nights over Easter with my family. The owners were very very nice and helpful and provided a lot of detailed knowledge for trips and restaurants. There's also a grill by the pool which we totally took advantage of on our 2nd night and it was just very nice to have a home cooked dinner together and relaxing by the pool. There's also a hot tub and free movies to borrow. The view over the bay was excellent.
