We loved our room, and our stay here. The rooms are modern, nice, and comfortable on the inside. The staff are especially nice people, and quite helpful. And the beachfront location is really tough to beat. It's a little too far from the center of town (where most of the restaurants and shops are) to walk, but it's only a very short drive. I will stay here again on my next trip!

I had two nights here while I travelled alone around the North Island. The first floor unit was finished to a high standard and clean with a balcony and spectacular views. The kitchen area was well equipped with a fridge and microwave. The garden area is where you will find sun loungers, a trampoline, hot tub, and decked BBQ area with steps leading down to the beach. Body boards and sea kayaks are available to guests, but sadly the weather wasn't on my side for using them. The owners are really friendly and helpful, pointing me out to a lovely seafood restaurant called 'Squids' on my first evening. Well worth a visit. Beautiful scenery, nice people, great place to stay. I can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Go for a beachfront unit

We spent two nights at the Beachfront Resort this past week. We arrived a bit before check in time and our room was ready for us. This place was a dream location for our son - with beachfront access, a trampoline and a hot tub available for guest use, he was a happy camper :-). The views from the rooms are outstanding and the location was ideal, close to all the ammenities in Whitianga. Kate, the hostess, was lovely, giving us a recommendations and enquiring about our time. There were a few housekeeping issues (which in fairness, I didn't bring up with Kate) that prevented me from giving a full five stars but I would happily return to Beachfront Resort in the future - the weather wasn't ideal when we were there so we'd love to return and take in all that the area has to offer. The location of Beachfront Resort truly cannot be beat!

Stayed here with my daughter on a mother daughter weekend for two nights, couldn't fault it. Hosts very friendly, such a gorgeous spot right on the beach. Also two lovely cats. Great place to stay if you want to just chill out as they have loungers and a BBQ, spa pool. Also beach toys.

Room Tip: Rooms with beach views definitely the way to go.

Friendliest, cleanest and super beach front accommodation that we have ever stayed in. A real shame we couldn't stay longer.
We would certainly holiday at the Beachfront resort again. Kitchen was very well laid out, certainly didn't have to search for any thing, it was just there. Plenty of space and very comfortable bedding. Thanks heaps Kate.

Room Tip: Room 5 is the best

We were only at the Beachfront Resort for one night and wish we would have stayed much longer to enjoy the beautiful beach just steps from the hotel. We stayed in the unit that didn't have a beach view but it was wonderful. Comfortable beds with a nicely stocked kitchen. Kayaks and spades for your use (the spades are for Hot Beach). A nice trampoline to lay on at night and look at the stars and listen to the ocean. Also has a grill and table to eat and look at the ocean. It was one of our favorite places to stay in NZ!

Our 2 night stay with friends from Christchurch who, like ourselves, thought the accommodation, very friendly staff and easy beach access led to a very enjoyable time at the resort. Would definitely visit again. Beautiful garden, with spa pool, safe easy parking, beautiful beach,conveniently situated to Whitianga town.
