“We were shocked how good this was”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2010

Virtually on the beach and 10 minutes walk into the Town centre made the location perfect. A supermarket 200 metres away but not visible is ideal if you are going to use the balcony barbeques or extensive kitchen. We had a 2 bedroom apartment with a seaview and balcony on 2 floors. The accomodation and equipment was to a very high standard throughout and there were some ghost like staff who made the place spotless each day without you ever seeing them. Ive only ever experienced that over a week long stay at the Hyatt La Manga.

We will be back

The scene is set by the warm welcome from Barry & Sue and just keeps getting better - spacious and well equipped apartments - terrific bay views - great advice about what to do - courtesy reservations made for you. Lovely accommodations and even lovelier people. Highly recommended and you could easily economize by having two couples in one of the bigger apartments.

Our hosts Barry and Sue gave us a warm welcome at their beautiful appartment in Pahia. The appartments are so big, you could live in them. We had an outside terrace with a beautiful view over the ocean. Every night soaking in the hottub on the terrace looking at the stars above the ocean. The people are friendy, help you with everything, complimentary Wifi. We could not wish for more.

If we ever get back to New Zealand we will sure gave them another week visit.

We (myself, Mrs Haggis and our two kids - aged 7 and 9) stayed here for three nights in mid January, mainly based on the other reviews in Trip Advisor. As there was limited availability we stayed two night in one apartment and one night in another.

Pleased to say that I can also confirm much of what has already been said. The apartments are of a very high standard, very clean and have all the usual mod cons. In the first apartment (#2) as well as stunning views of the bay, there was also a good sized balcony with barbeque and a fabulous hot tub/spa. The second apartment (#8) was over two floors and had an indoor hot tub and an individual sauna - Mrs Haggis was rather overjoyed at this ! The only very mild criticism is that the living room furniture was a little uncomfortable. Reception has dvd's, books, games and toys that you can borrow, as well as plenty of brochures etc.

The apartments are situated directly across from the bay. Although there is a lot of traffic during the day there was very little at night, and certainly not a problem (we're both light sleepers). It was great to sit and watch the bay from the hot tub, or just wake up to a beautiful sunset. They are also just a 90 second drive from the main centre in Paihia, and just a minutes drive from a petrol station and a Woolworths.

A very special mention also for Barry who was a fabulous host. We thoroughly enjoyed his company, comments and suggestions. We also appreciated his considerable efforts when Mrs Haggis left her passport behind. He didn't have our phone numbers (just email addresses) but remembered that the company in Australia that I worked for. He made a number of calls and finally tracked me down. Barry then arranged for the passport to be couriered to us, and it turned up safely a few days later. I don't believe Barry even charged us for this. We are extremely grateful.

All in all we would be very happy to recommend the Blue Pacific Apartments.

We stayed here on our tour of NZ .

We were upgraded from apartment 5a (studio with hot tub) to 5 ( one bedroom with hottub) which was next door. It's on the ground floor but the views from the patio are stunning. It's better than the photos on their website!

Blue Pacific was perfectly located for us because we could walk to the Waitangi treaty Grounds (1km), walk to the town centre for meals, trips etc.(1km), walk to the beach (50 meters right in front of the apartment), walk to the supermarket (200 metres round the corner). We didn't use the car at all.

We had barbecues on the patio and watched the tui birds that came to visit the flax flowers.

The apartment was immaculate and Bob and Sue most welcoming and helpful. We had excellent weather and just wished we could have stayed longer.

My husband and I spent two nights here, but had to change rooms after the first night, due to overbooking. This essentially meant an upgrade for one night, and the transition was managed without any inconvenience to us, at all. Both apartments were well-presented, clean and modern with well-equipped kitchens. As other reviewers have noted, the elevated location lends itself to quite lovely views, enjoyed, I supsect, from all of the apartments. On-site managers and household staff were friendly and helpful. Well located one 'bay' away from the Paihia wharf and shops - still an easy walk, but it was nice to have a quieter beach and waterfront area, particularly when a cruise ship arrived on the second day.
