Stayed here for one night and found it well equipped, spacious, and just a walk across the road to the beach. There are a couple of good places to eat nearby, and are just a few minutes walk away. There is a swimming pool in the centre of this small complex and parking outside your unit. We spent three weeks... More

We recently stayed with our 18 month old & this place was perfect for us. Very spacious apartment with 2 bedrooms, full kitchen facilities, spa bath & generous fenced outdoor area. Just a minute walk to town, food establishments & the large playground across the road. Is definitely one I would recommend if you like a bit of space. We... More

We stayed in unit 7 at raumati sands for 2 weeks. We were surprised at how spacious this unit was. Warm, cosy, private and luxurious. We loved the deck as well felt like a home with plenty of room. Well equipped kitchen, laundry facilities were good and the bedrooms upstairs together worked well with our little boy. Plenty of space... More

The accomodation is just great and the location wonderful. Start or end the day with a walk on raumati beach 2 mins away. Facilities include a full kitchen and all units have 2 bedrooms. Owners are friendly and all managers have been great also. Resort like surroundings with trees and a small pool to cool you down on hot days

The apartment was well equipped, except for our changes of linen each day. One day we only got two towels for four people, no clean tea towel or hand towel. When we asked for more replacements, we were given them. The pool area needed a good clean. It wasn't at all inviting. Chairs had bird droppings on them which were... More

Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that staff responded to your request. Our apartments are self service but we do a limited daily service for our guests, i.e replacing tea/coffee etc, towels, rubbish bags and anything else that may require attention. With the environment in mind we ask guests to place towels on the bathroom floor if they... More

We loved our long weekend based at Raumati Sands. The apartments compare favourably in size to any in central Wellington with two large double bedrooms upstairs (one set up as a twin room) and bathroom. Downstairs were separate lounge, kitchen and dining spaces (giving room for kids toys) with laundry and toilet. It's all really well set up and would... More

Our house got flooded and we needed somewhere to stay while insurance was sorting the mess out. Lucky for us we stayed in here. Handy location to the park across the road and the beach access. Rooms are comfy and the layout was perfect. Only thing i would comment in is the place needs to be renovated slightly but other... More

The Raumati Sands Motel is in an ideal location for a weekend getaway. It is straight across the road from the beach access. The shopping area is just around the corner. The motel was a very pleasant two bedroom apartment, with all the amenities you need. The kitchen was adequately equiped, the beds were very comfortable and it was spotlessly... More

We've had two stays at the Raumati Sands, and enjoyed both greatly! Very convenient location, great to have pretty much a full kitchen in your apartment, and the private spa baths are wonderful. The pool area looks great, though we've never taken the plunge personally. If you aren't a big pool enthusiast, there aren't many other features at the Sands... More
