“Great hosts, great accommodation”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

We booked this resort by first reading reviews on trip advisor and the resort certainly lived up to the expectations of all the great reviews. We were welcomed by the lovely hosts Pamela and Graeme ,who were so helpful and accommodating.
We had a two level apartment which was beautifully furnished ,well equipped and spotlessly clean. Plenty of room for our family of five.
It's location was about 50 metres from the beach. Shops were about a block away.
There was plenty for the kids to do at the resort with a tennis court, swimming pool , as well as bikes and scooters on hand.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would absolutely recommend this resort to stay at.

Our two bed apartment here was actually a three storey house, complete with garage and first floor balcony (sea view if you are lucky). Nice open plan kitchen, dining and lounge areas. One drawback is that toilet/bathroom was on the top floor only. Less than 5 mins walk to Buffalo Beach, and only a little longer to the village centre. Would have liked to stay longer and get to use the swimming pool and tennis court.

We booked two apartments for 7 days over New Year for three couples and our adult children who stayed for a couple of nights each. The accommodation worked well, with each apartment having two good sized double bedrooms on the third floor and two single beds on each ground floor.

On the first floor the kitchens were well equipped with stove, oven, microwave and a dishwasher. Good stock of crockery and cutlery meant we had no problems having eight people sitting down for a meal either inside or on a deck.

We were pleasantly surprised to find that one of the apartments had a gas fired BBQ on the deck, which staff must have picked up on when we made our bookings many months ago and had asked what BBQ facilities were available.

Clothes washer & dryer were located on the ground floor. We were also offered to have the apartments serviced daily for $20 per day.

End units have larger kitchens and have more light due to extra windows. A bonus was lots of parking space for extra cars and a boat & trailer too - although the fishing was not as good!

We were provided with a "starter pack" of tea & coffee and detergents which was not problem as the Four Square supermarket is only two minutes walk away, as is a local cafe, the fish & chip shop and the beach.

Only draw-back was the WIFI connection which was very slow most of the time that we we there. A post and chain fence posed a challenge for one of our party when reversing a car!

Oceans resort Whitianga was one of our favorite places to stay during our trip through New Zealand The room was very big and well kept. Ot almost felt like home. The kitchen is very well equipted with an extra bonus of having an oven and dish washer.
We didn't have a sea view, but if you request this with your reservation they will see what they can do.
The bedroom was wonderful. The bed was firm and the blindes and curtains made the room nice and dark.
The bathroom had a shower and bath. The amount of storage space in the bathroom wasn't very big, but in the room itself there is plenty of space to store your things.

There's a small swimming pool and tennis court present. Two bikes are available for yse of the guests as well as shovels in case you were to go to Hot water beach.
The towels and bed are changed and made up each day.
You have your own washing machine and dryer whuch was very welcome after a long journey.

Whitianga is a very small place sp you can easily walk from the resort to the centre. Be sure to walk along the beach in the evening. It's a very nice way to end your day.

Treat yourself and stay here for a couple of days

Room Tip: If you want a sea view, then put in a request when you make a reservation.

Stayed here for 2 nights and wow we were taken a lack by the accommodation and service. We stayed in an apartment which is more
Like a 3 storey house complete with driveway. Everything we needed was there including washing powder for the machine and dryer.

Lady that checked us in was Briliant And nothing was too much trouble.
Loved it! Great location for exploring.

Great Place, fantastic Appartement, excellent accomodation. Well furnished, full Equipment, very friendly staff, clean rooms, Good Location close to the Beach, Shop nearby, a few small Restaurants as well. Although, for the ones who are looking for a Party town, are gonna be dissapointed. It is a fine, quite rural village.

18 days, 11 cities and 3 countries!! My trip around the South Pacific was short by most 3-country trek standards but it was well planned and allowed me to enjoy pretty much EVERY activity I wanted to experience while there. I promised many of the companies I booked with an honest TripAdvisor review and here I am making good on that promise. Of course everyone was not excellent but mostly everyone was!!
Okay, so the Oceans Resort is not your typical “American”resort; it is SO MUCH BETTER! First of all Whitianga is by far my absolute favorite place in New Zealand. If I ever go into hiding and need to live three months in peaceful beautiful place my family will be able to find me here at the Ocean’s Resort ☺. These are not hotel rooms, these are not condominiums these are townhomes people and they are great. Ours of course had three bedrooms, one off the back of the garage and two on the top (third) floor. If you booked a one bedroom you are only allowed to use one bedroom (makes sense to me) so they housekeeper doesn’t have to tidy more than one bed. There is only one television on the main (second) floor (again no problem for us) and great wifi! The laundry was helpful and much needed; the kitchen was fully stocked (wine glasses and cork opener), we didn’t have any real ocean view, which is a shame because the beach across the street is beautiful. I got amazing sunrise pictures of it, but we had to walk over. I did not use the pool and our home was close to the Lost Spring walkthrough, which I did use although I chose not to pay for the Lost Spring’s services (chose to do the springs in Rotorua). The Resort is also a quick walk into town. This is a small town people with great people. We were out walking around (really looking for donuts) and my friend left his camera somewhere. We did not even notice it was gone, by the time we got home the Whitianga Police pulled up behind us with our camera in her hand. Someone had turned it in and she found us to return it to us. Far and beyond the call of duty; we don’t even know where we left the camera. We did have a few electrical issues in our garage but they were fixed expeditiously and information about when to go to the hot water beach and the spades were priceless. I want to go back so bad☺ Loved the Oceans Resort. My rating is really four and a half, lost a half for no ocean view. With it would have made it perfect.
