“Lovely visit to the Bay of Islands during the off season.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

This hotel, with stunning views, is in a perfect location close to town and the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. The restaurant was excellent and the spa experience was good. Staff were very helpful and friendly. The in room spa bathtub is extra long and a great soak after a day of sight seeing. The pool area looked lovely but it was a bit chilly for use.

A bargain at the off season rate.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 403 and would request it again.

The resort was lovely and clean, absolutely stunning views of the beach, staff were very friendly and helpful. Would certainly love to stay there again. The restuarant had a good selection for dinner and breakfast.

I was lucky to stay at this beautiful resort last week. The views from my room were stunning, the staff were very friendly and attentive. The restaurant is an absolute gem with a delicious menu and pleasant atmosphere. I will stay again. Thank you.

Room Tip: From what I could gather, all rooms have beautiful views. Higher floors have less noise.

This is no typical 5 star resort. Because of its small size - around 20 rooms - facilities are somewhat limited but Paihia Beach has a lot going for it. First you have a stunning location overlooking the wonderful Bay of Islands. The beach is perhaps 50 metres away with a top class playground right opposite the hotel. Children will love it. You have to cross a road to get to the beach but there is a zebra crossing and NZ drivers do stop. Second the rooms are spacious, comfortable and well equipped. A glass door leads to a patio and if you are at ground level you can go straight out to the excellent swimming pool with hot and cold spa pools. There is no bar nor residents' lounge but there is a restaurant where food and service are excellent. If you have a hearty appetite you might find the portions on the small side. We did not use the Therapy Spa so I can't comment on it. This resort is far from cheap but the quality is there. As it was off-season we were offered a very good deal. We were made very welcome by the small but friendly staff and, frankly, we were sorry to leave.

We arrived very tired from a long day trip from the South Island with no accommodation booked on a very busy weekend in Paihia. We were offered a room at an excellent price when loads of hotels were fully booked. The service was outstanding!!! Room was excellent. Spa was excellent. Loved being poolside and found we still had plenty of privacy. Restaurant food was fantastic loved the seafood platter, better than the food we had in town. Thanks guys for making our stay the highlight of our trip. Can't wait to come back!!!

Had an enjoyable weekend with friends here. We got the massages which were great, but I haven't had a lot to compare it to.
Dined at the restaurant which was good and offered good value food.
Something is up with the carpark as I see previous comments about this area being under construction but no one is working on it, we had to park on the street as there was insufficient parking.
We were on the top floor which offered great views out into the bay and more privacy from the road below.
There were some items not working in our rooms and the staff already new about them when we raised them.
The place seemed full but I feel it isn't value for money and while it is self rated 5 stars, I feel 4 or 4.5 would be more accurate.

Room Tip: Top floor has the best view, and privacy from roadway.

This was the last stop on our two week New Zealand trip and we were looking for a place to relax, we'll I to say we found it. The Paihia Beach Resort is a luxury accommodation, the rooms are very modern and VERY large. The view of the Bay of Islands is beautiful from the room and hotel.

The staff was friendly and helpful. We eat at the restaurant for breakfast and dinner during our two night stay. The dinner menu was very gourmet in comparison to other restaurants we ate at in NZ and very good. The walk to other restaurants in Paihia is a little bit of a walk, so it was easy to eat at the hotel restaurant.

This hotel was a perfect way to end out trip to New Zealand.
