“Awesome location and views”
Reviewed May 5, 2008

We stayed at Ala-Moana for just the one night - and both agreed that we wished we had allowed more time to stay in the area.
We stayed in the little studio right at the front and we were able to sit out in the sun in the early evening drinking wine and chatting to the owner and passers by!

The unit was spotlessly clean and had all the facilities we required. The welcome was very friendly as was the help and advice on visiting the treaty grounds plus where to go for drinks/dinner.
The location, being both on the esplanade and walking distance to the wharf and town centre is just perfect.

We would highly recommend a stay here.

We spent 3 nights at the Ala-Moana Apartments on the esplandade at Pahia, the Bay of Islands. The owners were the most helpful people I have ever met. The Units were immaculately cleaned every day. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The location is about 100 metres from the wharf area where all of the trips to the Bay of Islands arrive and depart, which made it a very convenient place to stay. Within walking distance of all restaurants and the town centre. I would definitely recommend the Ala-Moana to anyone.
