Ocean Beach is a gorgeous, tropical gem by the beach. The units are huge, service impeccable and location right near Wainui Beach is hard to beat.
After arriving later in the evening post a long drive from Auckland, Kate and Hamish the managers were very welcoming, professional and lovely. Our room was huge, beautifully furnished and warm with the heating turned on before our arrival.
Our kitchen was self-contained and we cooked a late dinner with all utensils (plus more!) at hand. We were really surprised at the size and functionality of the kitchen. The fridge was far larger than at most motels, there was a lovely timber bench, full cooking facilities etc. Ocean Beach offers units that more like spacious apartments! We felt very pampered!
We had three great night's sleep. The bed was comfortable, room spacious and with lovely decor. Certainly it was nice not to have normal city noises and to wake with the smell of sea air.
There is a restaurant on site which offers delicious Mexican food. Wow, the dishes were large and super tasty! It was nice to meet a few of the super friendly locals which made our experience all the more authentic.
Overall, we found it difficult to fault Ocean Beach Motor Lodge. It provides so much more value than other motels we've stayed in. Grateful for a wonderful stay!
