This complex offers well appointed large rooms with two queen-size beds, a small patio, a shower only bathroom and a coffee-station/mini-bar nook. There is a 24 h charge for wi-fi. The breakfast buffet is very good and our dinner was excellent. The only problem was the service. The evening manager was overwhelmed by the number of guests, which is surprising as we had made a hotel reservation for 11 on a Monday, when most Paihia restaurants were closed. The manager was argumentative and completely ignored our single female member of the party. I must also mention that their pool was freezing, which is surprising giving that average temperatures were in the mid 20 C. Nevertheless, it is far enough from "the action" in the village and the low light pollution allows for amazing views of the stars. You can walk to the beach and to the village in minutes and the front desk was very accomodating. Perfect for a family stop.
