“Good holiday accommodation for family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2012

Lets be honest, Raumati is not quite the same as Waikiki, Hawaii. But the rooms here are good for a family. Quiet with 2 bedrooms upstairs and downstairs is kitchen, laundry and family room with sofa bed. The pool is nice with spa and sun loungers. 3 min walk to beach or shops, easy parking. What more can you ask for.

A perfect, two story town house arrangement which was very quiet. Nice warm spa and slightly heated pool. Good for children as only thigh deep, with a toddler part. Sun loungers and shade. Very clean and private.

We found these apartments quite by chance having spurned the place we had booked further north. We turned up after 6 p.m. on a Sunday eve and the stand-in Manager was extremely helpful. We thought the apartment was superb - spacious and comfortable. Best of all it had a washing machine which was a welcome sight after 2 weeks of travelling! Sadly we only had one night here as had to catch the ferry the following morning. We were pointed in the direction of a great restaurant on the beach too. Great place and would love to re-visit

I have nothing but praise for the host, who made considerable effort on my behalf when I arrived in a very wretched state, suffering from a stomach bug which had developed some hours earlier. I was most grateful for his solicitude and assistance.
The apartment was of a high standard and very comfortable and blissfully quiet.
I would have no hesitation in recommending it to other travellers visiting the area.

Stayed at Raumati Sands Resort for two nights in the school holidays. Perfect place for families and travellers, and business. Beautiful apartments, very quiet and the service was outstanding. Thanks for the tips on places to go, maps etc.. Not sure about the negative feedback, I was nervous until I got there and realised I had nothing to worry about. We will defiantly be back again!
Out of the many places I have stayed throughout New Zealand this was one of the best!!!

We've been to stay two times this year and have loved the facilities, the quaint location and the service from management. Very helpful and go out of their way every time. I dont understand how there can be negative reviews, but people are quick to talk about the bad. I personally witnessed on both occassions that GUESTS were rude from the get-go at arrival. Didnt their Mothers teach them to treat others how you wish to be treated? Do they think that because its 4.5star that they can treat the people that work there like dirt? We will be back and cant wait to come back again :)

Just spent a couple of days at this establishment and was absolutely blown away bby the lovely apartments that were beautifully appointed with all the mod cons. Extremely quiet and nicely furnished, rather luxurious in fact.The hosts went out of there way to accomadate several groups of us for a large family gathering. They were attentive, kind and very personable we will definitely be back for a holiday.

Room Tip: A room around the back not such a good view but oh so quiet.
