My partner, my sister and I stayed here for one night as we were attending a function across the road. The service was excellent and the room was very tidy. It is very central to the Raumati township and right across the road from the beach. One small thing was that the carpet downstairs had been replaced and was new,... More

We booked in for 5 nights and the complimentary tea / coffee was never replenished over that time. The double bed was never made up.....pulled up yes. The internet vouchers lasted about two minutes then you are prompted for a credit card number. The two bedrooms were only one room. When asked to unlock the 2nd room, the hosts insisted... More

We booked months in advance for a two bedroom apartment. We arrived early and were reluctantly given a key at 12. The apartment itself is well located and quite nice. One of the bedrooms was locked because we only booked in for 2 people. We had to pay another $60 on top of the $220 already being paid per night... More

Thank you for your review. Our normal check-in time is 2pm and we always share that with all our guests. In this case we changed a very tight cleaning schedule to accommodate you. All rates are well advertised on our website and when the guests' circumstances change we again are very happy to accommodate their change of plans. Have a... More

From a washer and dryer, full kitchen, outdoor pool and spa and don't forget a bbq area, it is a wonderful place to take a break from life.

We enjoyed staying in our large 2 story apartment, It was close to the Raumati shops and restaurants which was a bonus. We stayed in the middle of winter and found that the heating wasn't the best to warm a room, it did take quite a while. The Kitchen was well thought out. Most of the apartment did need a... More

We booked on short notice, and were pleasantly surprised at our assigned apartment, the "seaviews" weren't quite as seaviewy as I might have thought, and I'm glad we didn't book something that had the "pool" view because it was completely covered with some type of builders tarp. Oddly, they locked the second bedroom, I didn't want to make a fuss... More

We enjoyed our 2 bedroom 2 storey apartment for several reasons, firstly because it was at the end of the row, each apartment has its own car park space, it's fully self contained so also has a washing machine, dryer and dishwasher and a proper oven and big fridge, and the beds are very comfortable.

Was really disappointed in our stay at the resort. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, the pool and spa were broken and we weren't told even at check in, this was the deciding factor of staying there with the kids, the single bed broken, no heat pump and a little one instead, which in Wellington, is poor form. beds...

We are very sorry about you not being able to use the pool. The pool was under renovation and this fact was well advertised on our website. The renovation work has been completed this week and the pool and hot tub are now open to be used by all our guests. We hope to see you soon. More

We have been back to the Raumati sands resort three times in the past 6 months and each time a different apartment.

We recently inquired cost of accommodation at short notice. We had searched online but when we arrived at the Resort the difference in the room price was approximately $100.00 per night. We were disappointed that the reception staff were not prepared to budge. Shame as we ended up staying somewhere else for 2 nights.
