We spent 3 nights in these apartments and loved it.Close to beach, cafes and restaurants, extremely friendly and helpful staff.Full Sky channels plus DVD for evening viewing, if like us you don't stay out late.The apartment was big and comfy,would definately stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 2nd floor of Oceanside resort and had a lovely sea view

The staff are very friendly and efficient and don't muck around if you want something done. The lobby, restaurants, pool area, gym and rooms are all immaculately presented. Amazing views of the beach and the mount, along with less than 1 minute walk to the Main Beach.

Cafes under the resort and towers are very good, recommend getting breakfast there if you can. Would definitely stay here again. We got a 2 bedroom apartment last time with a pull-out sofa bed and that easily slept 6-8 people, along with amazing views, big balcony and full kitchen facilities.

Room Tip: Get a room on the west side of the tower, then you can view the Main Beach, the Mount itself and the...

Our women's group stayed at Oceanside Resort and Twin towers for 10 days. We enjoyed the easy access which is about a block from the beach. The rooms were comfortable.
The staff was great and very helpful. The area is beautiful. It was fun to see the cruise ships entering into the port and leaving almost daily. The summit (mountain) was a great hike to the top or the easy access trail around the mountain with views of the gorgeous ocean coastline. The weather is windy on many of the days and early mornings so be prepared to layer up even in Summer.

The Twin Towers are at the foot of the Mount facing the Main Maunganui beach. Apartments A and B face onto the beach and so have wonderful views and full sun during the day, which can mean they become very warm in summer. Apartments C and D are at the back of the building and face Pilot Bay, they catch the early morning and late evening sun only and so can feel quite cool during the day. There is a smallish swimming pool and hot tub available to guests as well as a small gym and sauna (!). It is a great position, being so close to the beach, cafes, shops and the Mount, plus there is an underground car park (which is a real bonus in summer when the streets are crowded and parking can be a problem), and a bus stop just across the road.
There are 10 floors in total and a lift takes you from the underground car park.
We have stayed in two different apartments in Tower 1 - one on the 1st floor and one on the 9. I would thoroughly recommend anyone to stay here, but try for a high floor at the front (9A or 9B would be fantastic).

Room Tip: If possible get an apartment high up facing the beach (9A or 9B) would be ideal, if you like great v...

Stayed at Oceanside for 1 night only. Occupied 2 rooms as with other family members. Reception staff excellent at check-in and check-out. The rooms are spacious compared to motels etc but you do pay a little extra for the comfort but still worth it. The apartments are very close to the beach and ocean. Probably a 20 minute walk to the restaurant area where there is a good variety to choose from.
Would I recommend staying here, YES.

Recently stayed for a long weekend. Very good service from staff, we were made to feel very welcome. The apartment was very well equipped, clean and tidy. Topping it all off was a view was to die for.

Great location on the beach, we watched the surf life saving races from our balcony. Walked down to the numerous cafés for a fresh barista coffee.

I have been staying at the Oceanside resort for the past six years while on business trips. The staff are amazing, good location and value for money. I highly recommend Oceanside for both business and pleasure accommodation.
