We recently stayed at Pauanui Pines. We had a great stay, very handy to the shopping area which was across the road. Enjoyed cycling on the many walkways aroung Pauanui. Went over on the ferry to Tairua ($5 return). Played tennis on the tennis court and even had a dip in the pool , divine ! Recommend playing mini golf which is just around the corner. Places we dined at were "The Lime Room": and "Puka Park Resort" both served yummy food. It rained the whole time we stayed but did not effect our fun time spent in Pauanui. Room was very clean.
