We stayed in unit 7 at raumati sands for 2 weeks. We were surprised at how spacious this unit was. Warm, cosy, private and luxurious. We loved the deck as well felt like a home with plenty of room.
Well equipped kitchen, laundry facilities were good and the bedrooms upstairs together worked well with our little boy. Plenty of space in the bedrooms for all our stuff.
The service staff were wonderful and efficient. Brian the manager was very helpful and friendly.
We loved walking to the beach and cafes most evenings. It's a stroll from raumati gardens as well.
Would definitely stay here again and is well worth the costs.

The accomodation is just great and the location wonderful. Start or end the day with a walk on raumati beach 2 mins away. Facilities include a full kitchen and all units have 2 bedrooms. Owners are friendly and all managers have been great also. Resort like surroundings with trees and a small pool to cool you down on hot days

The apartment was well equipped, except for our changes of linen each day. One day we only got two towels for four people, no clean tea towel or hand towel. When we asked for more replacements, we were given them. The pool area needed a good clean. It wasn't at all inviting. Chairs had bird droppings on them which were never cleaned off while we were there.

Room Tip: One of our upstair's bedroom had a small beach view which was nice.

Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that staff responded to your request.

Our apartments are self service but we do a limited daily service for our guests, i.e replacing tea/coffee etc, towels, rubbish bags and anything else that may require attention.

With the environment in mind we ask guests to place towels on the bathroom floor if they need replacing.

We loved our long weekend based at Raumati Sands. The apartments compare favourably in size to any in central Wellington with two large double bedrooms upstairs (one set up as a twin room) and bathroom. Downstairs were separate lounge, kitchen and dining spaces (giving room for kids toys) with laundry and toilet. It's all really well set up and would be a great option for an extended stay.

Most attractive for us with a toddler, the Sands is across the road from Raumati Marine Gardens. With its splash pad, leafy picnic spots, and model train rides it's the best playground we've found in the greater-Wellington region.

The Sands has a nice, mid sized swimming pool, a hot tub, and a bbq and outdoor table. The beach is 5 minutes walk away and a local stream provides muddy-puddle play opportunities.

The Raumati shops are 2 minutes walk in the other direction, with all you need for a long weekend including 4 square, book shop, liquor store, and several excellent cafes and take away options.

What could they do better? We couldn't get a babysitter - but turned out we didn't need one, the Waterfront restaurant by the beach offered views and food to keep us all happy.

Our house got flooded and we needed somewhere to stay while insurance was sorting the mess out. Lucky for us we stayed in here. Handy location to the park across the road and the beach access. Rooms are comfy and the layout was perfect. Only thing i would comment in is the place needs to be renovated slightly but other than that probably one of the best places to stay in on the coast.

The Raumati Sands Motel is in an ideal location for a weekend getaway. It is straight across the road from the beach access. The shopping area is just around the corner. The motel was a very pleasant two bedroom apartment, with all the amenities you need. The kitchen was adequately equiped, the beds were very comfortable and it was spotlessly clean.
The balconies were a nice place to sit and read or eat. The only suggestion is that if there were two couples staying there it would be good to have two bathrooms. There are two toilets though.

Room Tip: If you want to be on the balcony it would be good to ask for a room with afternoon sun.
