“Mostly good - but one serious flaw”
Reviewed 22 March 2011

The view from the terrace is wonderful and the atmosphere of the apartment is very nice. The kitchen had everything we needed for our stay and I especially liked the wide selection of tea they provided.
The people at the reception are helpful, and the rooms are clean and tidy.
BUT we booked a two bedroom apartment - and the second bedroom is a digrace. No reading light, no nightstand, a very small (but comfortable) bed, barely big enough for one person, with half of a wall cupboard hanging over the lower half of the bed. They put the tumbledryer in this room as well - if you use it, the room gets so humid and hot, that it is hardly possible to sleep in there.
Also the living room has a nice couch for 2 - the only other seats are the chairs at the breakfasttable or 2 chairs outside on the terrace.
So this apartment is nice for two people, but not really adequate for more, which makes it a little overpriced.

The apartment described in this review is a 2 bedroom luxury apartment. We appreciate the comments and to rectify your concerns we have placed a bedside table in tthe second bedroom with a reading lamp. We are also currently looking into moving the dryer to a more suitable location.
We would encourage guests to voice any concerns to us as soon as they become aware of them as we always do our best to make your stay an enjoyable one.

The Blue Pacific Apartments was the first place we stayed in New Zealand and was superb - unfortunately it made everywhere else seem ordinary! The view is just amazing - I'll never forget sitting in the spa with a glass of wine looking out over the Bay of Islands. The service was great - so friendly and helpful. We got married in Paihia and found the Blue Pacific Apartments the perfect base for our honeymoon. Hopefully we'll get back there for our first anniversary.

Our second stay - this time for 4 nights - reaffirmed that the apartments are superbly equipped (right down to the cocktail shaker) and very comfortable, enjoying wonderful views of the Bay. We did experience a sewer problem that infused one of the bathrooms with an unpleasant smell for a day or so but assume that the problem was of a temporary nature. The apartments are of above average size - and the space is supplemented by large decks. All village amenities are close by. Wireless internet was fast, reliable and included in the price.

We stayed at the Blue Pacific Apartments for three nights near the end of our 25 day trip to New Zealand.
We were 2 couples sharing a 2 bedroom 2 bath condominium.
The four of us agreed that our stay at the Blue Pacific Apartments was one of the highlights of our time in New Zealand.
The Blue Pacific Apartments have: Friendly, efficient and very helpful staff, outstanding location (virtually everything is in walking distance.) Free , fast Internet...free laundry facilities in your apartment and fabulous views from your apartment.
Stay there , you'll love the place and the people!

Blue Pacific Apartments is our family's Heaven on Earth!
We are a professional couple with professional adult children who both have partners.
We have now had two years over Christmas and New Year at Blue Pacific apartments- staying for 2 weeks each time- and have booked again for the end of 2011.
The units are spacious, immaculatley clean and the kitchen appointed to the level of your own home.
We cannot fault the facilities and on top of this there is the most amazingly friendly team of staff led by barry and Sue.
Blue Pacific gets our highest recommendation.
