We had a really great time at Moana Sands Lagoon Resort. The property is brand new and the staff are excellent. We received a room upgrade and loved it! Note: If you're flying Jetstar beware that they delay flights often. We ended up missing our first nights accom.

Kia Orana, Thank you for taking the time to Rank and Rate your stay. I am pleased you liked the upgrade which we did to make up for your flight issues and we had the 1 room availability. Your staff comments re-enforce to the Team that efforts are noticed and appreciated. Thank you again and I look forward to possibly hosting you again in the future. Regards Wayne.

Pros: New and very clean albeit not finished.
Newly built with restaurant still under construction. Once completed we would stay here again without question.
