2 bdrm apartments have everything needed including laundry, full kitchen cleaners provided.

Has great swimming pool if you have kids and in constant use.

Nice little balconies of both bedrooms and courtyard available with sun chairs and umbrella - they lack privacy is all.

Average accommodation based only on tired furniture in lounge - needed cleaning or replacement in our apartment.

Little privacy also as windows have only curtains and no nets or blinds.

Also no free WIFI tho free park with each apartment is great.

Great little spot tho unlikely to stay again.

Without doubt, the best motel we have stayed in in NZ. Modern facilities, great location, kids loved the pool and only a short drive into Wellington. We've stayed twice and will definitely stay again. The kitchen contained everything you would need, the washing machine and dryer in the apartment were a god-send and plenty of room for 6 of us.

Lets be honest, Raumati is not quite the same as Waikiki, Hawaii. But the rooms here are good for a family. Quiet with 2 bedrooms upstairs and downstairs is kitchen, laundry and family room with sofa bed. The pool is nice with spa and sun loungers. 3 min walk to beach or shops, easy parking. What more can you ask for.

A perfect, two story town house arrangement which was very quiet. Nice warm spa and slightly heated pool. Good for children as only thigh deep, with a toddler part. Sun loungers and shade. Very clean and private.

We found these apartments quite by chance having spurned the place we had booked further north. We turned up after 6 p.m. on a Sunday eve and the stand-in Manager was extremely helpful. We thought the apartment was superb - spacious and comfortable. Best of all it had a washing machine which was a welcome sight after 2 weeks of travelling! Sadly we only had one night here as had to catch the ferry the following morning. We were pointed in the direction of a great restaurant on the beach too. Great place and would love to re-visit

I have nothing but praise for the host, who made considerable effort on my behalf when I arrived in a very wretched state, suffering from a stomach bug which had developed some hours earlier. I was most grateful for his solicitude and assistance.
The apartment was of a high standard and very comfortable and blissfully quiet.
I would have no hesitation in recommending it to other travellers visiting the area.

Stayed at Raumati Sands Resort for two nights in the school holidays. Perfect place for families and travellers, and business. Beautiful apartments, very quiet and the service was outstanding. Thanks for the tips on places to go, maps etc.. Not sure about the negative feedback, I was nervous until I got there and realised I had nothing to worry about. We will defiantly be back again!
Out of the many places I have stayed throughout New Zealand this was one of the best!!!
