What a well-built, well-designed resort in one of the world's most beautiful areas! We were there for 4 days, & would have loved to have stayed a few days longer. In addition to many things to do in the area, & enjoyable little shops in town (Paihia), the resort itself is on a heavenly, peaceful stretch of beach, with a nice swimming area, hot tub, massage spa, etc. There's regular hotel shuttle service for the 10 min. drive into Paihia. We saw so many people only staying a night or two, and regretfully having to leave to continue their planned itinerary. We urge you to schedule a longer stay. You'll thoroughly enjoy it.
The staff couldn't have been nicer, or more helpful and accommodating. The cleaning crew is thorough. Food in the restaurant is well-prepared, & tasty. There're two guest laundries on site. There're also tennis courts, and many other things to do while relaxing and enjoying this resort.
Our suggestions for improvement: Again, this is a Millenium property that's in need of lots of fresh paint and new carpet. Also, internet service is not available in the guest rooms, just down in the lobby & you only get 20 minutes a day free. Other "packages" are available, but in this day and age, that's simply not the norm any more. We learned while traveling in NZ that cell phone & wifi services are 3-4X as expensive as in other countries. Still, when you're staying at a resort of this caliber, in-room unlimited wifi should be standard.
