This is the most complete, well-furnished and spacious accommodation we came across in our 2-week road trip in New Zealand.

We got a 3-storey unit, which was big enough to accommodate 3 families. Garage, washing area and a bedroom were in first floor; balcony, living room, dining room and kitchen in second floor; 2 more bedrooms and bathroom in top floor.

Fridge was spacious, kitchen was equipped with dish washer and built-in oven on top of the standard appliances like microwave, toaster, stove and sink. Utensils, cooking apparatus, tea and coffee were not forgotten too.

There were swimming pool and small children playground in the vicinity, and there's direct pathway leading to Buffalo Beach.

We had a wonderful stay!

I am a regular visitor with work and find the team at Oceans always friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and kept up to date and comfy. Walking distance in good weather to the centre of town and right at the beach. Breakfasts are great as well. Now I am planning personal trips here as well as business ones - that is a real recommendation.

Whitianga is a beautiful spot as a base for local exploring and Oceans Resort is the perfect place to stay. We have been here twice before and, at our request after the first visit, we have always been in apartment 63 which is well located close to reception and pool whilst also being close to the entrance to the complex. The apartment is the upper floor of a semi-detached house. The apartment can be let as a one bedroom unit all on the upper floor or a 3 bedroom unit using the additional 2 bedrooms on the ground floor. It is really well equipped with an oven and full cook top, a huge fridge/freezer, a dishwasher, large flat screen TV with zillions of channels and a washing machine (on the ground floor) and clothes drying line in the back garden. The bathroom though is a weakness because there is nowhere other than the windowsill to put your stuff...really frustrating and so easy to rectify.
The balcony gets the sun throughout the main heat of the day but unfortunately not in the evening when it would be most beneficial. Must remember that for next time...apartments 62 and 60 would suit us better for the evening sun on the balcony. That said, we just love this resort. It is peaceful and a short walk to restaurants. The beach is about 50 paces from the resort entrance and it is a huge beach which has loads of space for walking etc. The marina and ferry are interesting for leisurely diversion.
The hosts, Pam and Graham, are helpful and friendly. Graham helped me with a puncture on my hire car by changing the wheel and showing me where to go for a repair. Lovely people.
The wi-fi at the resort is much improved from 2013 and was reliable throughout our week in the apartment.

Great find. Backs on to the Lost Spring hot pools,with towels supplied.
Supply of bikes and shovels for hot water beach. Ocean glimpses. One street back from the beach. Excellent value for money. Friendly staff who were only too happy to help us out with bookings and local knowledge.

We were allocated a triple story 2 bedroom apartment for a family of 5. there was a ground floor where you entered with garaging and half finished downstairs room but bathroom was complete, 1st floor living/dining and kitchen with balcony off lounge, and top floor bedrooms and bathroom. I hadn't read the comments on the listing from TripAdvisor that these are privately owned and managed by third parties. When we had feedback/issues (maintenance etc) we were told "we'll let the owners know". So felt there was a bit of lack of responsibility from the otherwise very helpful people at the front desk.
Pros: a spacious area for families, very quiet at the end of the complex (we were in 35) and noise between apartments (they are joined on each side) minimal. Facilities such as the pool and playground are great for the kids and the driveways safe enough for scootering. Lots of kids and families about so everyone was very careful. Sea view from the master bedroom window was nice.
Cons: noise travels up the stairwell to the bedrooms and can be a problem if you have young kids that go to bed early. 2 flights of steep stairs a hazard for infants/toddlers, and a lot of climbing which may not be a bad thing. Linens could do with an upgrade - thin polyester sheeting and duvet, weird memory foam mattress and odd smell in the master bedroom (think it might have been the mattress) and the quality of furniture and bathroom fittings on the cheap side. deck was missing an umbrella and sunny only in the first half of the day, went into shade in the afternoon due to the design of the partitions. No view from here except that of the opposite apartments. Sky TV advertised to have a lot of channels but none of the movie ones which is really all you want to watch when on holiday in the evenings. Would be a good idea for a 2nd TV in kids room to keep them entertained. The clothesline at the back of the apartment is cold and in shade so the washing never dried. Use the dryer or do the unsightly thing and hang out on the balcony!
I'd stay here again but ask about the apartments available first. It would be good to have the units rated here by number as I'm sure they differ vastly.

Room Tip: Ask about the apartment first - as they are all owned privately and differ in features and quality.

We were allocated a very spacious, modern and well-equipped apartment, which had a very homely feel with the ornaments and pictures. We were also fortunate in having sea view. We appreciated the full laundry facilities in the garage, the well-equipped kitchen and free Wifi. We also liked the heated pool and being able to borrow spades for our visit Hot Water Beach. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and everything is within walking distance (or a short drive). There is also access to the beach. The only thing it lacked, which might be an issue for longer stays, is some drawers or shelves (we lived mostly out of the suitcase as a result) and I could imagine the bedrooms on the top floor get very hot at the height of summer - bit this is really only nit-picking as we had a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view
