“Amazing location”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

Absolute beachfront, such a great place to stay. The owners/ managers are super friendly and more than happy to help with any requests.
Great rooms with complete self service kitchen. Spacious and modern. There is a great BBQ and dining area overlooking the beach, outside spa and massive kids trampoline.
Our only comment would be we at times we could hear people above us, so if noise bothers you ask for a room on top floor. But it didn't impact out stay.
10 minute walk along beach to main town. Highly recommend!

I drove past this motel the other day on a business trip and was sad that i didnt have time stop spend a night or two like my last visit.
My wife and I loved the spa, overlooking a stunning beach. The rooms are beautiful and the view second to none.
Excellent hosts will make your stay perfect. Dont miss this one!!!!

Room Tip: definitely sea view rooms if available

Mercury Bay Beach at your doorstep. Quietly tucked away at the end of the beach. Feels like your very own slice of heaven. Facitilies are excellent, super clean and friendly helpful owners Paul and Kate. With 2 small children the trampoline, outdoor eating and private patio all made life so much easier for us all! Spa for the grown ups was a winner too.
Lots to do and the hot water beach is an absolute must.!

Room Tip: Ground floor beach facing!

Family of 4 had an enjoyable stay here in January. For us the high point of the accommodation is the location and the direct access from the unit onto the garden and to the sea. We stayed in a downstairs unit and the sliding door opens onto the patio where you can eat your own home made breakfast that looks out onto the lovely garden and beach. The owners were friendly, very welcoming and helpful in giving us good advice where to visit some beautiful spots in the area.The 2 bedroom unit is very compact and the space for the 2 singles bed is small but perfect for younger children. It was okay for our older children but its more like a 1 bedroom space with a dividing door so dont expect a very large 2 bedroom unit. The location more than makes up for this. There is a spa/jacuzzi in the garden which was always private and enjoyable We recieved vouchers for wifi but we found this frustrating as the internet could definitely be improved. We arrived 1 night ahead of our stay and were lucky to get accommodation in an upstairs unit for the night. The owners moved our bags downstairs the next day to the allocated ground floor unit which we preferred. Thanks for a very enjoyable 3 day stay. The Coromandel Peninsular is beautiful and I would recommend Beachfront Resort as a very pleasant place to stay for a family or a couple.We had 2 great lunches at Hot Waves Cafe and Luke's Kitchen and enjoyed our trips to Hot water beach, Cathedral Cove and New Chum Beach. The only let down experience was snorkeling in Gem stone Bay where we were told there were loads of fish and the wasn't even a single fish to see!!!!

Room Tip: We preferred the downstairs unit opening directly on to the garden. Upstairs units have a balcony o...

Always a relaxing stay. Hospitality and privacy. On the beach. Perfect for early morning stroll to town for coffee, kayaking or cooking indoors or outdoors. Spa, BBQ and all the amenities for a beautiful time away on the Coromandel.
