The location is first rate, just over the road from the children's playground, free water park, and safe beach. For children up to 5 you need travel no further.
The hotel administration (booking etc) was weak, but that was probably because it was up for sale in Feb 2014.
Chalets are exceptionally spacious, and kitchen is well equipped. Local shops are limited, so bring your supplies with you. I recommend "The Garden Deli" for a proper New Zealand breakfast.
Overall, I would be happy to take the grandchildren again.
