Reviewed 22 December 2010

We stayed 2 nights here. I've marked down as the apartment is around the other side of the bay rather than right in the middle. Only a 10 minute walk to the middle of Piahia where all the bars etc are.
The accomodation is modern and clean. We had a 2 bedroomed apartment with a separate lounge and bathroom with a great sea view.
Came with washing machine and dishwasher which are always useful.

This was one the surprises in our package. It was recommended by a friend, and boy it was a good recommendation. The hotel is by the beach front. with beautiful views. It is also quite near to Hole in the rock cruise. There was a nice kitchen and we had a lovely stay here.

Would surely recommend this to my friends.

The great service started when I emailed them 5 days prior to visit, I got a very fast reply offering me an great price and very easy to confirm.

Upon arriving check in was very fast, and they had put us in a room on the 3rd level, about 30 metres from the water with an amazing large balcony, and great views of the beach and out to sea!

It was a 5 minute walk to the main hotel area where you can walk along the beach, or around the road and next to a petrol station and dairy if you needed anything else!

The room was very large, with a nice living area (and full cooking facilities), and very clean! Can not think of anything which i 'dislike' about this place, and I am already trying to plan leave to go back for a longer visit!

(The place doesnt appear to have a spa or swimming pool, however you are 20 seconds walk from the beach so even this doesnt matter)

This the second time we've stayed at Sea Spray Suites Pahia and have been reminded of how fantastic everything is there. We have children (2 & 5yrs) and this time we stayed in a two bedroom apartment, last time a one bedroom apartment/ suite. The space in the main living area is smartly furnished with a very clever kitchen layout, the bathroom is quality and the bedrooms are simple but very smart. I would higly recommend this place to anyone. the only downside to the upstairs side units closest to tha main road end is the view of the shell garage station next door. The front units over lookingthe main road and beach are awesome. We will be back there again at some time.

Stayed here for two nights as part of a tour of NZ and was really pleased with Seapsray suites. Great location in Paihia, only a few mins drive from each end of the town, beatifully fuirnished inside and very clean. Had the best shower I have ever experienced of any hotel. Well equipped kitchens with dishwasher etc, cleaner even did our dishes for us in the morning which we never would have expected! Felt like a real treat and the price was barely more than some of the hostels in NZ! Only downsides was the lock on the sliding front door was a little fiddly to operate and the heating system was really complicated! Very nice beach in paihia, lovely little place, great resataurant called Salt we visited on our last night, one of our best meals in NZ. Stay here, you will NOT be disappointed.

Sea Spray suites has been furnished very nicely and has the features you expect for the price except that only the living room is air conditioned. The suites get quite warm during the day in summer due to large glass doors overlooking the patio/walkway/entrance passage. We managed OK , but the whole air conditioning thing did annoy my other half quite a lot given the tariff.

Also the TV is very small. I know that complaining about the size of the TV may seem trivial, but in our experience places at the higher end of the market now usually provide better than the small TV we found at Sea Spray Suites.

Not sure if we'd recommend it or not. If we were returning to Paihia ourselves, I don't think my hubby would be keen to stay at Sea Spray Suites again, but we wouldn't rule it out. We'd probably prefer to stay in Russell, but if we did stay in Paihia we'd probably have a fresh look at what else is around. Sea Spray is average for the tariff.

Also there is free parking but the parking spaces are pretty small and it can be a bit of a hike from your car to the stairs then back along the walkway to the apartment.
