We stayed in Unit 65 with two bed-rooms (one double bed ad one twin-beds), two bathrooms, a well-equipped kitchen, a nice dining room and a washing machine (but no dryer), the service is great while the staff is friendly.

Plenty of room to spread out over 3 stories, situated close to the beach, the town & backing onto The Lost Spring is very convenient! Very welcoming staff who were so friendly & helpful.

Full apartment with everything you need. Very close to everything, including the beach (we were lucky enough to have sea views). Very welcoming managers, and very knowledgeable about local tourist spots. It's the one down the driveway, not the motel on the road front - can be confusing. Will definitely be back. Also has swimming pool and tennis courts.

Located 50 metres down the drive is this amazing resort with awesome fully self catering units with a great modern flare, ideal for families or that quiet romantic get away. Super close to the beach and shops not far either. Warm friendly atmosphere and top notch service. My family had the best time and would recommend to anyone.

Just great, excellent accommodation, very friendly, couldn't do enough for us. 5 star plus! (Be careful to go the extra 50 yards down to OCEAN'S Resort reception, otherwise the inferior motel in front will try and poach you).

We stayed one night in the apartment. The one-bedroom apartment was well furnished and clean. We requested for a room with free Wifi and was arranged one. The kitchen was well-equipped with cooking utensils though we did not cook but had our dinner at the local restaurant called 'Squids Bar & Restaurant' that served tasty seafood. We made use of...

oceans18, Manager at Oceans Resort Whitianga, responded to this review

Hi Ronnie - thanks for your review. Because we run on hot water cylinders we rely on power to heat the water, rather than gas. This means the hot water in the tank is all there is - once used up, you then have to wait for the power to re-heat the water. Just like a jug takes time to... More

We love the personal touch of the managers couple. Our different family members also have felt very much at home every time we visited. We sure found our regular place to stay in Whitianga! Very central place to all the highlights on the Clearances.

Hi Sutopi67, Thanks for your review however I do feel you are being extremely harsh.
