This place was amazing! The apartment we had was gorgeous, clean, well furnished and had all the amenities you could need and more! The pool was awesome and the location was right next to the lost spring which was even a bonus! I loved this place so much and hope to return! Whitianga is gorgeous and so is the Oceans Resort! x

Loved having our own little townhouse style apartment. Close to everything, clean and conveniently backs onto The Lost Springs Spa. Would definitely stay here again.

Scallop festival

Pros: Located walking distance to wharf and shops
Cons: Separate toilet or second bath
Location: Scallop festival, ferry to cooks beach, shops restaurants
Nice location had terrible weather so didn't use the facilities on offer such as the pool or tennis courts. Only one toilet in the bathroom but sleeps 5 so not ideal.

Weekend get away

What a great place for a weekend getaway. We haven't stayed in apartments before but this stay will start a new trend for us. The apartment was comfortable and configuration was great . We were a party of 2 couples and we had a bathroom each which was great. The staff we came in contact with we're friendly and very helpful. Awesome stay! Thank you!

Perfect hideaway retreat

My husband and I made a last minute decision to get away and chose this resort. Despite a booking misunderstanding they accommodated us with a very friendly and warm reception. It lived up to beyond our expectations and will now be our go to x on the map. Thank you to the manager for making us so welcome. It will always be remembered for that.
