Reviewed 2 July 2014

We have just returned from 7 fabulous nights at the Crown Beach Resort. The suite (we had a courtyard pool suite) was just beautiful, spacious, and just the perfect place for a honeymoon. The gardens and surroundings were magical, and the staff so lovely . The food was delicious, we especially enjoyed the smorgasbords, the best ever. So exceeded our expectations. The lovely ladies at the spa gave wonderful massages. Vini from reception was so helpful and friendly. Can't wait to return.

We have just returned from our second year staying at the Crown Beach Resort and Spa. Last year we stayed for 5 days and this year 10. We could have stayed for another 10. We love everything about this resort and have nothing negative to write. The staff are all amazing, nothing is a problem and all very friendly and helpful. We had an amazing room and felt very spoilt. Seafood Chowder to die for and Crown Delight Cocktails were our favourite. Thankyou Crown Beach for our wonderful 10 days, we will be back next year again :)

We stayed here for 6 nights and absolutely loved the stay. The staff are so friendly and accommodating, the views are amazing and the beach is just beautiful. Thoroughly enjoyed the Island Night held by Crown beach and even had a private dinner on the beach where my partner proposed to me. Such a memorable experience and the staff were great. Snorkeling equipment available in the rooms which is great and they do a "turndown"service every night and put flowers on your bed.
Would love to see more wifi internet deals available as they could only offer $10 for 100mb, have seen other resorts with better wifi deals.
We had airport transfers included and a scooter rental provided on site without having to go anywhere. Worked out at $19 a day.
We were more than happy with our stay here, stayed in a beachfront room Villa 3. Rather pricey for the fact that we were a bit further off the beach with a private ground in front of us, and your lounge faces the beach not your bedroom which would have been nicer. Thoroughly enjoyed our villa location however for the price, a garden or courtyard suite would have been just as enjoyable.

We stayed at the Crown beach resort for 6 nights in a standard room. We tried to up grade to a pool room but they were booked out. The std room was spacious with separate lounge and kitchenette. The bedroom had a big bed with firm mattress and nice sheets. The bathroom was massive with toilet and shower with great water pressure. The room was tidy and had fans and air conditioning in the lounge and bedroom. The location is perfect close to town and eateries. The staff are very helpful and friendly with a special mention to Mii at Oceans who's service was outstanding. Breakfast was good with decent chooses. Happy hour at Oceans is wonderful from 4.30pm to 6.30pm. Just don' t be in a hurry to get you drinks they are on raro time, suggestion order two at a time easier. The resort is very quiet the type of resort you go to to just chill out. If you want a party resort this is not it. Recommends- The spa next door is a must for a couples massage, Steak and ribs night excellent vaule for money $39.00 nz pp. Not so good-no reef shoes available or flippers you can't get out for a swim or snorkel without these maybe something they could look at for the future.Also wifi is expensive so suggest arranging your own. All in all we had a great time, if we were to return we would pay the extra for a pool room.

We spent four nights at Crown Beach, staying in a standard villa.

The room was very spacious and comfortable, however the kitchen and bathroom were in need of an upgrade. The toilet in particular was looking extremely worn.

The staff were absolutely lovely. They were very helpful when we wanted to organize reservations and tours.

The gardens, pool and beachfront were fantastic. It was nice staying on this side of the island as we had some spectacular sunsets.

The breakfast was included, but was very average.

It was an expensive place stay given there were a few small shortfalls, but overall we enjoyed it, and would stay again.

Our group arrived at the Crown Beach resort and our early check in was into a room that we had to move out of 8 hours later! Not much fun! Our final room had it's own plunge pool. Two rooms had good beds and beach front location was brilliant. Staff were happy and helpful. Breakfast in the dining room was always first class. Spa massage treatment was OK ... NOT great. The Maori Dance Show was great fun. A good resort experience ... Not a great one.
