    Very relaxing ambience, loved the beach and the view. They could have provided extra pillows, 2 pillows is not enough for 2 people. We stayed 2 nights however they did not provide any resupply on the second day even after i called and asked them, only towels were replaced

    The view was amazing, and overall an enjoyable stay. The only thing I would say is that the menu for lunch and breakfast could be a bit better....dinner menu was great.

    Horrible service, wasted weekend and money

    The reception was very poor and they seem to treat some people worse than others. I will tell everyone I know how poorly we were treated. We paid our fair share like everyone else but I guess we were just not the right shade.

    Amazing service, views, accommodation, restaurant food...the perfect getaway. Also handy to a gem of a village-Waiuku. Sitting on the deck watching the sun going down over the Tasman... breathtaking.
