On arrival we were surprised to have had an upgrade so that we were alongside our friends from Tauranga. Comfortable bed, nice relaxing spa bath, and magnificent scenery. An 11am checkout without asking was an advantage.

This was a great hotel located right across the street from the ocean. Check in process was smooth and the young lady that checked us in was so nice and helpful. Great first impression. We also ate at the restaurant which was very nice. Would definitely stay here again.

The rooms are clean and modern we had a great ocean view room which also had a spa bath which my fiancée really loved! It is about 30 mins walk into the main town or a 5 min taxi ride. There are plenty of restaurants and bars by the hotel which is good as you don't have to travel into...

We arrived late and left early, next time will be more organised to have time to relax and enjoy it! Bathroom was luxurious with snuggly bathrobes, bed was so comfortable. Sea view would have been good, definitely next time!
