The Beachfront Resort has a great location right on the beautiful Buffalo Beach. From the room there is always the sea to watch and the people who enjoy it. There is a barbecue area and a spa to share with the other guests. The details that marred our vist were all inside our unit. The bed was soft and any time one person moved so did the other. Made for a bad night's sleep and even after three nights we hadn't got used to it. The bed definitely need upgrading. Also the room layout was odd. The only place we could watch TV was from the table or sitting on the end of the bed. I shouldn't think watching TV is a priority but it is annoying not being able to se it from either lying in bed or sitting on the couch.
Our unit was spotlessly clean but I did feel some facilities need upgrading in our room

Even though I was down here for one night it was by far the best place I have stayed at so far. The view in the morning is just fantastic and being beach front eliminates some if not all traffic noise. I would love to have stayed longer however due to work commitments I could not....maybe next time.

Our two night stay here was very enjoyable! Although there is just enough parking in the front, so unloading may be a tight squeeze if they are full, all is forgiven the minute you walk in and: a) see the view; b) note the rooms and bath are spotlessly clean, and c) every amenity has been thoughtfully made available for your stay. The property is waterfront with outside private seating on the patio or deck, as well as a community barbeque and bar with stools if you want to congregate with other guests - perfect for watching the sunrise! They also provide kayaks and a hot tub, if you're so inclined. Unfortunately, the washing machine was broken, so we were unable to do our clothes as anticipated, but everything in the apartment worked. We shared a three-bed unit, and it was a tight squeeze with our luggage, but we spent most of our time outside anyway. There is a grocery store within a couple miles, as well as some restaurants. The drive to Hot Sand Beach and Hahei Beach are about 30 minutes away; there are some great shops and cafes in both places if you're making the trip away from Whitianga for the day.

Stayed here for two nights with family. The location is superb with spectacular views across the bay directly from the balcony. The property is located right on the beach with direct access from the lawn where there is a communal BBQ facility. There is also a spa pool for use. Kate the owner was very friendly and helpful. The two resident cats are likely to visit your room to make friends! There are plenty boogie boards which are free to use on loan and we spent a great afternoon surfing just yards from our room. The beach is gently sloping and safe. There are also buckets and spades for use which we took to Hot Water Beach a 15 - 20 minute drive away. Its good fun digging to find the hot water springs beneath the sand but when we went it was very busy. Be warned that we were advised that Hot Water Beach is not for safe swimming. Nearby there is a nice walk down to Cathedral Cove - very scenic, and unless you are really unfit it doesn't take as long as the signage suggests.

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!
