Unfortunately we only had one night at the Heritage Suites when on a diving trip to the Rainbow Warrior. The suite was spacious and well appointed overlooking the pool and had plenty of room. The staff very kindly let some of the party use the facilities while the others went diving. Did not use the pool but it looked inviting....

The location is great! The beach was directly in front of us and the shops and restaurants are no more than a minute away. The rooms were big, clean and best of all we had ocean views. Would stay here again.

We (3 couples) enjoyed staying here for three nights in mid January. The layout of the suite is nice with a large living and kitchen area and a nice balcony with a view. There was a washer/dryer in our suite so we just needed laundry soap. There are also lots of dishes so you can bring your own food and...

The apartments and location here were very very good, albeit with a few "quirks" that could be individual to each "room" - clean, modern, spacious, good kitchen area and lounge/diner. Gorgeous balcony overlooking the town centre which could be a tad noisy at night if there's music on - but heck, it's part of the atmosphere and you can just...

Waterfront Suites is a great secure (all gated) location for a stay in Paihia - it is so close to the wharf and ferries, pick up for tours, restaurants, grocery stores all just a short walk away. Helpful staff, rooms well appointed, very nice pool and views to the sea. The main bedroom had a fan but the second bedroom...

Stayed in the suite and it was a nice combo of open plan and quite bedder at the top rear facing out to the bay- great spot and it was just spot on for fun, food and activities locally. Tidy, clean, easy and enjoyable. Brief- we'll definitely return👍

Can't beat the view and the desk clerk was lovely at check in. Our 2nd floor beach front unit is stylish and well appointed kitchen and laundry but the rugs are filthy and stained. The beds are comfortable and linens fine, not high end. When we called down to ask about the chance of any down pillows we were told...

Don't come here for peace and quiet, very noisy, no sleep, you can hear, children dive bombing and screaming in the lap pool, the children also climbed over the pool fence. You hear everything that happens in other rooms above and around you, scraping furniture. We were here for 8 nights and after the receptionist hearing the noise from upstairs,...
