Although this hotel cost us over NZ$400 a night it was worth it. The hotel is all inclusive, with multiple places to dine, a huge swimming pool and a private beach.
The rooms are impeccable, with the highest quality furnishings. The turn down service was a great bonus. The staff we very friendly and always said aloha in the hallways.
We were supposed to do a day long tour on our third day there but the hotel was so amazing we cancelled it and spent the whole day on the private beach. There were turtles everywhere in the cove, with amazing snorkelling.
I personally wouldn't recommend the buffet breakfast, because it is not worth the $30 cost. But the other food we ate in the hotel was great (if slightly over priced).
The only suggestion I have is to rent a car, because it is hard to get anywhere without one on the island, as things are very spread out.
