The location was out of this world. The staff were amazing - genuine caring but not over the top Kiwi hospitality. Best service I've had anywhere. Nothing was a problem

The views are stunning!! The people are friendly. Walls are thin between walls - I heard snoring from rooms either side sadly.

Lovely friendly hostess, gave great tips and ideas for things to do in the area. Had an excellent ocean view from my ground floor room. Room was clean and well equipped. Great location, a little off the highway in a quiet private location facing the sea. A bonus is they have a little bar and restaurant with lovely home cooked meals.

Thank you for your review

The location is stunning and the views beautiful. While the units were clean and adequate, we felt that for the nightly rate they should have been better - our unit had no TV, hair dryer, ironing board or iron, and only one bedside lamp. Similarly, the food in the restaurant was good but expensive for what it was, and there was no tea or coffee available at the end of the meal.

What can you say. Book with an on line travel agent and off course there is a charge on the booking. In some cases 20%. - reality of life. I wonder at times if people can still read! We clearly state we have no televisions. For those who can not live without it, maybe they should look elsewhere, or learn to use a tablet. We have a compendium that clearly states if you need anything please speak with us, they will be given the keys to the Patrons laundry, the ironing board, hair dryers etc....If the food is too expensive why order it, if the rooms are to expensive why book it??? or is it merely another reason for a moan. Oh what a joy your life would be if you lost the cloud of negativity you appear to be wallowing in.

I liked the scenery and the quiet but I believe that they need better access to the beach. People go there to fish and dive and unless your an Olympic athlete you just can't get down to the beach. So there is nothing else to do. Nothing for children, no Tvs in the rooms, nothing. Only TV is in the restaurant. They need to make the beach accessiable... Beautiful place though
