“Great even when it's raining”
Reviewed March 20, 2012

We booked for 2 nights and would have taken more if the weather had been better, however couldn't have asked for a bette to place to stay when there is bad weather. We actualy spent a whole morning just enjoying the room and watching the wild surf accross the raod. We shared our appartment with friends and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I note the comments about room 309 and the condition of furniture and fittings. All I can say is that room 204 is quite the reverse. We found everything to be in good condition. The second bedroom however was realy dark due to the lack of a window and we had to leave a light on in the bathroom at night.

We are already considering a return visit.

Room Tip: Second floor has great sea views, but direct beach is hidden by dunes

Great location for a family holiday. Kids loved the apartment and activities. Pools were very good but cold. Luxury apartments advertised so I think the pool should be heated to be in line with this. We were there in Feb and the pool was very cold.
Staff friendly and helpful. Complex felt very safe.
The free broadbrand was very slow. Ok for checking emails but don't bother if you need it speedy for business.
Lots of things in my apartment were broken or in need of repair: bathroom sinks leaking and blocked, toilet flush kept flushing, tap in kitchen kept falling off.
Hopefully repairs will be sorted. I would stay again.

Room Tip: 309 has really good sea views. The couch in lounge was worn and the table and chairs were very dated...

Stayed a few nights here on recommendation from an ex pat that the mount is gorgeous. well it is, the beaches are superb. Had a 2 bedroom apartment on ground floor. large and modern and excellent in presentation. Pools are great but heat the lagoon pool for kids, its a waste not heated. Secure and safe and in great location. highly recommended.
Hot pools in town are great but stay away from Rotorua, over priced, over rated.

Stayed a few nights in a big ground floor apartment. very spacious and modern, a beautiful apartment. Great facilities and pools but it seems a waste to not have the kids pool heated. across from lovely beach and far enough from town to avoid the noise but still close enough. The hot pools are a highlight. Secure parking and great service.

Just had one night in a 2 bedroom apartment.....very spacious, everything you could want. Room was overlooking the pools (one heated lap pool and lagoon pool). Enjoyed playing tennis on the court (boundaries are a bit tight!) and girls liked the mini golf. Across the road beach access to the fabulous Mount beach and easy stroll to the Tay Street cafe for coffee. Was wonderfully quiet while we were there but then it wasn't school holidays and weather only just coming into spring. Would love to stay in summer months......or better still buy one!!!

We are a family of five, with two teenagers and one 10 year old. We rented a 2 bedroom apartment and were thrilled with what we got. The photos on the internet are exactly as the apartments and facilities are. Our 2 bedroom apartment was huge, plenty of room for all of us. Fully equipped kitchen with everything needed for cooking. The whole place, rooms, pool area etc were clean and well maintained. We definately recommend these apartments, and if we are back in Tauranga again, this is where we will be staying without a doubt.

Room Tip: Pool view second floor was quiet

We wanted a break from Auckland visited the Mount for the first time with our 2 young boys. Booked ourselves into CuttersCove when we saw the nice pictures of the pool on the Internet. We were so pleased with our stay. We were in the 2 bedroom sea view apartment, fully equipped with new and clean furniture. Kitchen had all that we need and bedrooms were spacious and clean. Having tvs in both bedrooms and a main one in the lounge made us felt so spoilt and entertained. The heated pools with proper length for swimming was definitely a highlight for us too. I had a hard time dragging my hubby and kids out when we had to leave! The Spa was also very much used throughout our stay. Being right on Marine Parade but away from the noise made it brilliant to have the perfect getaway and the sea view and breeze made it all worthwhile.
