We stayed at Blue Water for two nights, made to feel very welcome by Paul right from the start. He has a very happy nature and everytime we rang the reception bell, he would appear with a cheery "here I am". He also recommended various sights in Tairua.
Our room was clean, cosy and comfortable and we appreciated being able to use the spa pool. We were going to Hot Water Beach, and not only was a spade supplied but Paul also offered us the use of beach towels. Unfortunately, the pool we dug at HWB did not yield much in the way of hot water, I put it down to the comment Paul made that there are often power cuts in the area, so I figured that's what must have happened LOL.
Tairua is ideally placed for travel to the main attractions on the east coast of Coromandel, Hahei, Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach are within 25 minutes drive and about another 20 minutes to Whitianga where you can soak in The Lost Spring.
Coromandel Peninsula is definitely one of our favourite destinations and we will no doubt return to Blue Water Motel in the future.
