Having read some of the other reviews I have to say I feel fortunate to have been allocated a beachfront room. In fact the aspect from some of the other rooms would have been very ordinary indeed. If you stay at this property, definitely request a front room.
As others have highlighted, Pavilion Beachfront Hotel is in a fabulous position - right on the water and close to everything. Our room had a lovely living area and a good kitchen but the bedrooms were pokey and the television in the main bedroom didn't work. We reported it to reception however the person on the front desk said she didn't know how to get it to work.
If I came back to Mt Maunganui I would shop around for somewhere better. It wasn't disastrous but it was a bit ordinary for the price charged - even with that magnificent view.
