“Mini Family reunion”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

My family of 6 have been vacationing at Pacific Rendezvous for several years now, our children have grown up holidaying here. We have now started an annual family reunion and recently stayed in 6 different apartments. They were all very clean and well equipped, with each apartment having incredible vistas either out to sea or over Marina. We have found staff very efficient and friendly. Most apartments have been modernised except for a few, We have stayed in unit '29' suits us for the courtyard although in need of a revamp. Were a little disappointed the pool table and table tennis facilities had been abolished, this had been a fun part of our family activities through the years. The grounds and pool/spa area are well maintained. My husband said it was a huge bonus having firewood pre-cut ready for the BBQ. Amazing part of the North Island and we love it & will continue going back twice yearly for as long as we are able.

Room Tip: Rooms on South side have the road to the back of the units, so better for privacy although Rooms on...

Meekymo thanks for your review. The games room was stripped out for renovation, painting , new carpet during your stay with us. The old pool tables and table tennis table were gifted to the Whangarei Hospice and have been replaced with ice hockey, new table tennis , new 60 inch TV with play station , and new puzzles. All the furniture has been replaced with new modular couches and a kitchen unit has been installed for guests to make tea or coffee while watching the kids swimming in the pool or playing in the games room . New outdoor furniture has also been placed in the courtyard between the pool and games room. This will look quite different on your next visit.
You were a pleasure to host and we look forward to next years reunion
Kind Regards
Ross and Gerlinde Lee

We stayed here for two nights and had a wonderful time: excellent clean and comfortable accommodation, such friendly helpful people, spectacular scenery. Local hotel had good food. We enjoyed seeing a part of our country we hadn't seen before.

Room Tip: A sea view in any weather!!! Magnificent!

It is wonderful experience to stay in Pacific. The manager is very helpful.

We have stunning view from deck over harbour. We enjoy the private track down to small private beach as well.

We will come back to stay in the place again.

Turning 60 - wanted to escape for a few nights. We had never been to Tutukaka and PR is a place we had heard of many times (legendary). It was fantastic. We had a beautiful two bedroom unit looking out over the ocean which, because of the weather, was raging and spectacular, could have just watched that for two days. Our unit was extremely clean, very comfortable, bright and warm, you wouldn't have known it was raging outside. It isn't luxury as the resort is a good 50 years old, but it has been kept up todate and well looked after. There is probably a lot to do in the area but we chose to blob. The Mariner isn't too far away although you couldn't walk it, but we had pizza on the wharf the first night and lunch and dinner at Snapper Rock for the birthday celebration which is fabulous both food wise and atmosphere. We watched the Chiefs win with the locals. Our only advice is to take an extension cord as power points are a bit scarce. Our continental breakfasts were lovely. We found the Managers delightful, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We agree with a previous review, the shower pressure was not good but then that is quite common in a resort like that. Would never hesitate to recommend to family and friends and certainly would return.

Room Tip: Book early and if there are 2 - 4 of you, book unit 7.

This spot really lived up to its good reviews. We are a family of five and there was plenty of space for all of us in both the bedrooms and, importantly, the living area of the very nicely furnished three bedroom unit. We took advantage of the hot tub, the pool and the tennis courts, using the complimentary rackets and balls provided by the resort. We swam and fished on the private beach and walked the Ngururu estuary beach walk. Also surfed Sandy Bay. It is a great resort and we will return.

Room Tip: Both sides have great views.
