We booked here based on the amazing views of the course, water and the villa, however upon arrival we were throughly disappointed. The villa smelt/had not been aired out, bathroom tiles were filthy and the toilet looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months. We couldn't believe there was no outdoor furniture to enjoy the views outside, alongside there being...

previous lunch special menu was good, but no more. New menu is a lot more expensive and food aren't good. chips burnt. Though environment is still pretty serene, yet food is pretty poor compare with the prices. Won't be coming again in near future.

As a local resident, we decided to stay at Formosa in between moving etc. I didn't really know what to expect but was disappointed. Formosa has great views. Room was Big and beds were comfortable, price was $175 pn. The downfall was a mess at the front door, phone didn't work, tv didn't work, spa bath didn't work and plastic...

Definitely should've listened to the reviews. Bathroom was unusable smelly and water was coming up through the drain in the middle of the bathroom. I ended up driving one hour into Auckland where my parents live to shower and brush my teeth. Stayed out there purely out of Location but would have rather woken up two hours earlier in the...

Great view from huge room at golf course accommodation. Dated a bit tired but clean and overlooking the sea. Very very quiet and peaceful. Course looks good but a bit dry. Rooms and gardens could be amazing with a bit of tlc.

We stayed here last weekend while we were in the area attending a family celebration. Didn't know what to expect really but we ended up happy enough. Yes it's old and tired but you get great space, great facilities and one of the best views in Auckland for under $200. Who can complain about that!

We stayed one night. Yes, the view is beautiful overlooking the golf course and the bay. If you play golf, just get out of your room. But if you expect a 4 star hotel with a 4 star service: No. Restaurant closed After 18:00, room a little bit run down and reception service not friendly.

The location was convenient for us to stay for a family wedding in the area, however the accomodation is terrible - our room was large but grubby, looked like it was mid way through a renovation, dirty grout in the shower, toilet hadn't been cleaned, builders dust through the cupboards and all over the iron and ironing board so we...

We stayed her one night (a raffle prize). We were in an executive villa. After reading a few negative reviews we were a little worried about our accommodation, but found it to be very good. Our room was really big, clean and appeared to have been recently redecorated. The bathroom was enormous. The golf course was in better condition than...
