“It is what is says!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

Yes it is what it says it is! All the rooms do have views. Check their website as they provide a picture of what you actually see from your motel. 17/18/19 do see both harbour and out to ocean others see only harbour others only ocean.Ours was a dated unit but comfortable and clean. Others have been updated with more modern interiors. The pool and spa are and tennis courts are all upgraded and look superb now. The games room was closed being revamped and decorated ready for summer. The grounds are tidy and well groomed.We felt the whole place is being well looked after now.Certainly worth a stay.

Room Tip: Look on the site to see the view from a room. Ask about the interiors as some have yet to be updated...

We had a great time. The bubbles went working in the general spa pool, but this was only very minor everything else was fab. All clean and fresh in and out of the cabin. Playpark in good condition. Kids loved it. Private Beaches were great with the pontoon to swim out to. Views were just amazing from every apartment. Staff were friendly and helpful. Beds were comfy and we loved the electric blankets. Kitchen well equipped. Really nothing negative to say at all.

I have never seen anywhere quite like this and will return for the views and beaches for sure. It's quiet and the lighthouse on the hill adds an ambiance not found before. My children enjoyed Whale Tail park and the trampoline and adventures on the sandspit. Its remoteness gives the place an edge in an overcrowded world where getting away from it all to nature has become an art. We enjoyed our stay here and found the team at work there most efficient, helpful, reliable and pleasant. Thanks again guys for a wonderful experience with great memories.

This complex of 30 cottages and units is awesome. Built on a headland looking out to the ocean and the hen and Chicken Islands, each unit is individual as each one has a different owner. We stayed in Unit 13 - a 1 bedroom apartment with upstairs balcony -the decor was very new and modern. There is a swimming pool, spa pool and tennis courts. We just loved this place.

Room Tip: Units 13 - 16 are the best!

This was the first time we have stayed at Pacific Rendezvous and will certainly be back. We had a three bedroom unit overlooking Tutukaka Marina and stayed three nights. It was lovely and quiet and the views are just amazing. It is also perfectly positioned a mere 5 min drive from either Ngunguru and Tutukaka Marina. The room was very comfortable with everything we needed and very tastefully furnished. We were travelling with two children (9 and 7) and they loved the playground area, swimming pool and spa pools. The owners are very courteous and accommodating. Upon checkout the owners advised that they were reconstructing their games room and adding Playstation, a new TV, Air Hockey, Table Tennis table and new furniture. Although we didn't use it, there's also a tennis court and pentanque area. Plenty to do at Pacific Rendezvous if you don't want to venture out for the day. I also felt the room rate was very reasonably priced, considering what Pacific Rendezvous offers! We will definitely be back.

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...

Ross L, Manager at Pacific Rendezvous, responded to this review, 5 October 2013
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
