We selected the Esplanade for its central location close to the waterfront. The person who checked us in accompanied us to our room to make sure we knew how to work everything. We had two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, kitchen and deck. Everything looked brand new, and we were told the unit had been redone. Our unit was...

We had 3rd floor apartment which was well stocked and had a lovely view but for the price paid we felt it was lacking a bit. Beds were hard. Lack of drawers in bedrooms. Only 1 tv even for a 3 bedroom apt. Bedroom which had ensuite was tiny with only a double bed. No pool towels or laundry basket....

Easy to find, the apartment afforded us the ability to walk all over town to find places to eat and shop. The management gave us some great recommendations for dining and sightseeing. The apartment was spotless and as a...

Luxury apartments with great amenities. Clean modern and with stunning views, Close to great restaurants and 2 minutes to the wharf. Great kitchen facilities for those wanting to self cater. There is nothing better than sitting on the deck watching the boats and people go by.

We had the pleasure of staying in a lovely apartment in this prime location in Whitianga . The apartment had every possible facility and was in a great waterfront location. We happily had dinner next door at No 8 and this too was a very enjoyable experience. We hope to be back very soon.
