From the moment I walked in the door, the managers were welcoming and friendly. The apartment offered everything my family and I required for our stay. The beds were super comfy. The cleanliness of the place was just superb. Will be back for a longer stay next time.

Staying at Esplanade Apartments honestly made our trip to the Coromandel so much better! We were lucky enough to have amazing weather - one week on since that horrible storm. The host Jenny and Kelvin were so accommodating and helpful on activities to do while the weather was good! They were also very educated on where to eat for dinner...

Yes the location is great and the apartments have most things you need but definitely nothing special. No real complaints apart from the price we paid and the number of doors you have to go through to get to your room (a minor but annoying issue) - our first night in NZ so we will put that down to experience....

A 3 day stay recently at the Esplanade Apartments was nearly faultless. Our room was modern, clean, centrally located and parking was easily accessible. So I would thoroughly recommend these apartments. Any negatives? Well there is no air conditioning...but this did not seem to matter even though the weather was warmish ,...and it's OK to ban smokers from rooms, when...

The apartment itself is a credit to the management team. Very well maintained. Bathroom awkward with doors. We appreciated the free wifi vouchers given to us, but wifi kept dropping out - difficult given we have to work while away. We understand it's difficult to get wifi to all rooms. Good secure parking available underneath the property.

Had we known that the restaurant next door had become a bar we would never have booked this. The male manager was extremely rude when we complained about the loud music and said it was not a bar but a restaurant. That's not what we observed over 4 nights. The bathrooms were very tiny, literally a small cupboard size! Bed...

We stayed in a two bed apartment which was clean and perfectly suitable for a stay in this area. It isn't amazing but ' does what it states on the tin'. One point of certain praise needs to go to the hosts. They could not do more to help you. They recommended some lovely eating places. They add something really...

We selected the Esplanade for its central location close to the waterfront. The person who checked us in accompanied us to our room to make sure we knew how to work everything. We had two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, kitchen and deck. Everything looked brand new, and we were told the unit had been redone. Our unit was...

We had 3rd floor apartment which was well stocked and had a lovely view but for the price paid we felt it was lacking a bit. Beds were hard. Lack of drawers in bedrooms. Only 1 tv even for a 3 bedroom apt. Bedroom which had ensuite was tiny with only a double bed. No pool towels or laundry basket....

We stayed here for three days and thoroughly enjoyed our ultra-sleek, modern apartment with a view of the pool and spa. Easy to find, the apartment afforded us the ability to walk all over town to find places to eat and shop. The management gave us some great recommendations for dining and sightseeing. The apartment was spotless and as a...

“Ask the managers if they are aware of any smokers in any of the apartments...and if so ask for "the other side".”

“Our view of the pool was very pretty, but I think a harbour view would be even more attractive, and possibly somewhat quieter.”
