Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This motel is really nice and clean, staff and management really nice and friendly. Motel unit was lovely and clean. We were on bottom level but unfortunately you could hear the people in the unit moving round on the creaky floor otherwise it was fine. Pool area was nice but unfortunately the large pool was too deep (2 metres) so way over the average persons head. That was the only fault. Motel is conveniently located to the shops and restaurants and easy to get around.

Awesome stay! Lots of things to do, great location, lots of amenities at the motel and a well stocked gym just a short walk away. We were actually surprised in a good way with how much more we had available for our 2 night stay and wished we stayed longer. Staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. All I’d say is book direct to help everyone… Thanks again! Would 100% recommend and stay again. - Cal

We love coming to this place. Great units, pool, spa, pétanque and tennis courts which we use. So close to town, and just a walk through town to the boat club and the Whangamata Club is very handy. The owners are amazing too!! So accommodating and friendly people!! Definitely our go to place a couple of times a year!!

Excellent accomodation, room was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed including aircon. Palm Resort is in a great location , walking distance to cafes and the beach but is still perfectly quiet at night. Dan is a great host and we would highly recommend staying here.

Loved staying here, the pool is just gorgeous and the rooms are well maintained. There is also a very nice spa pool and area for kids to swim. Very close to the shops and walking distance to the beach (maybe a 5-10 walk). Dan was super helpful and friendly. Would recommend staying here.

Lovely resort with tidy grounds and great pool. Good sized units. Comfy bed. Staff were very friendly. Resort is right by the shops and cafes so can walk everywhere. Rooms are obviously double glazed as very quiet with doors closed. Have stayed here before and will definitely stay again

Looking for a central quiet location in Whangamata, then look no further. The resort caters for everyone’s needs no matter how big or small the group - it even has a toddler pool, spa, sauna and outdoor pool. I especially enjoy the loungers reading my book. Dan & his team are excellent hosts, 10/10 cleanliness every time, a perfect sleep on super comfy beds, free DIY laundry and with pétanque & tennis (raquets and balls supplied). Walking into town (1 minute)is super simple with a dedicated entrance for pedestrians and easy to get around for prams, walkers and those with disabilities as terrain is flat. Want to explore the beach? Only a couple of minutes drive or a 5-10 minute walk. Enjoy yourself!

It was a nice place, great location, with good recreational areas and lovely staff but attention to details for cleaning should be slightly reviewed: hairs left on the build in hair dryer, hair in the air con remote control, cutlery washed by previous people were not super clean and not checked by staff and a bit of built up of soap in the shower. I may be harsh but I expected a bit “more”. If stay in unit downstairs and are sensitive to noise make sure to bring ear plugs as you can hear everything.

This has been our family getaway for the past 7 years and it never disappoints. The complex has a real community feel. Very relaxed. Awesome for kids. The units are really comfortable and clean and have all the conveniences you need. Great storage facilities for beach gear and bikes. Fab location for shopping, restaurants or a sneaky drink. We will definitely be back. Thanks Dan and Grace for another great family holiday.
