The location of this resort, right on Lake Rotorua, is beautiful. We stayed 4 nights and since it is about 4km to the north of Rotorua town (and the thermal attractions) we did not smell the sulphuric smell that seems to pervade the town. Yet it is still close to all the Rotorua attractions if you have a car.
This place is great for young children - it has a playground, 2 trampolines (old style, no safety net), a heated swimming pool and jacuzzi. They also gave us $10 worth of free internet access. There is a laundry room.
We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom units which was comfortable, with full kitchen facilities. The furniture and curtains were a little dated, but you get what you pay for and this place is good value for money.
One small downside is that noise does travel between the apartments. I heard (normal) noises of our adjoining neighbours moving around (opening doors, etc) in the mornings. Having said that, this was not a big issue for us and I would stay here again were we to return to Rotorua.
