Comfort - Very modern 2-bedroom accommodation and very clean. Beds were...

Our first night after a very long flight from USA and drive from Auckland. Reserved a spa king unit and was overwhelmed with cleanliness and modern appearance. The spa tub was exactly what we needed after such a flight. I don't think I have ever slept between more perfect sheets. The bed was very comfy. Did I mention the location?...

We stayed in a beachfront villa and as soon as we entered it we were blown away with the view.. Going to sleep whilst listening to the waves breaking just awesome. Peaceful, beautiful location. Restaurants and shops within easy walking distance.

If you are looking to add things to the list of "stuff to do before I die", for God's sake stay in one of the beachside chalets in this place. Yes, it's a Top 10 Holiday Park... put that thought to the side and when you are sitting on your balcony after a day driving, basking in the Bay Of...

Location of room was on beach front. Spa bath was awesome. It was so relaxing after a day at work. Walking distance to restaurant and takeaways was handy. The king size bed was a bonus, I usually don't sleep well when I'm away from home but I did here, the sound of the ocean is so relaxing.

Myself and my partner took a short weekend trip from Wellington. The location is AMAZING and it look as as though most of the more expensive accommodation on offer is great, but we were on a budget and chose one of their smaller cabins. It was tidy and clean, perfectly equiped and the communal toilet and kitchen block was spotlessly...

Location was walking distance to the shops. The front cabins had beautiful views of the surfers, every day in your backyard. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very clean rooms and a well organised property. We will be coming back to stay again.

The Papamoa Beach Resort was recommended to us as a good option due to its locality. It appeared a bit expensive for a cabin in a motor camp - how wrong we were!
