“Outstanding Family Resting Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

We decided to take a short break in Whitianga at short notice and decided upon Oceans Resort after checking TA; simply put, this place is outstanding. We were met by Vicky and little one on arrival and immediately made welcome. After booking us in she took us down to the property and showed us around personally. Specially selecting a room with a view out over the bay we were spoilt! With amazing views, excellent (and extremely well furnished and clean) rooms and superb family facilities this place is a gem. Highly recommended to both families and couples. J & D (UK)

I decided to take my partner away for the weekend (without the kids) and choose an awesome package including passes to the lost spring and a lovely cooked breakfast. The staff were really great and made every aspect of out weekend something to remember and all for a great price. A great way to farewell the winter season.

The manager, steven, had provided one of the best service during our stay at Ocean resort.
The apartment was clean and tidy, and the location was very good.

Receptionist was really friendly and helpfull. We had a package with the Lost pools entrance included which made everything so easy, plus it's next door with a special secret entrance from the resort. Our appartment was on 3 levels and full of everything you could need. the kitchen is amazing! One just regret... no time to enjoy everything as It was winter, and we didn't stay long enough to enjoy as much as we would like. great view on the beach front!
I'd the fact that the cupboard hide some boardgames, the kitchen contain some recipes book and in the living room you ll find some books, and DVD so you really feel at home.
Everything is clean, tidy, well designed.
Big Breakfasts was good and huge serves on room service if you're feeling lazy to cook.
We 'll be back for sure!

Room Tip: Ask for an appartment on the back near the Lost Pools Springs, its handy plus you'll enjoy the v...

My husband, 18 mnth old and I stayed in apt 29 Tues-Fri beg. August 2012 (3 nights)

We loved the homeliness of the apartment: clean, comfortable, everything was there (books, games, sky, etc) and easily accessible both in the apartment and outside - proximity to town, beach (love Cafe Nino and Monk St Market),

taking our all own breaky/lunch/dinner food kept costs down, and ended up indulging in three divine cooked room service breakfasts (eggs benedict and the omelette are oh so good).

we were lucky enough to have some child-free time next door at The Lost Spring............TLS is such a magnificent place! and it is soooo perfect sneaking through the back gate to get there from your apartment at Oceans Resort!

If you can sneak away from it all for a mid-week winter break I highly recommend Oceans Resort...............thanx so much Vicky and Steve.............hope to be back soon :-)

Managed by an awesome guy! This place is everything you could want - fab service and couldn't be more helpful!
This time we just came ourselves but next time we will be back with the kids - great playground, pool and tennis court! If you are without kids though it's a walk through to the lost springs - an experience you don't want to miss!

We stayed here with our one year old daughter in July in a 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment was lovely and sunny and had everything we needed. There is a tennis court, pool and playground located in the middle of the resort. Our daughter loved playing on the playground and it was handy for us to make multiple visits! Great location just across the road from the beach and within walking distance to the town centre and shops. Would love to stay again.
