Spent six nights staying at the Crown Beach Resort and Spa and ate breakfast and either lunch and/or dinner here every night. The staff is warm, friendly, and helpful ... standouts were Madonna and Frances. The location between the pool and the beach is great - lovely tropical island feel. Perfect for viewing sunsets with a cocktail or two. We... More

The restaurant shuttle came to pick us up on time & we enjoyed the 20 min drive, seeing the island at dusk. We had a nice table on the sand but 'indoor' because of the rain. The staff was welcoming and the food was excellent when we finally got it. We tried the local mahi mahi which was so well... More

We found out that they have a native dance and music show on Thursday nights in the restaurant area. The price was 15 NZD for the show or 55 NZD for the buffet with show. We decided on checking it out and for such a reasonable price we couldn't pass that up. We watched the show and it was excellent... More

We stayed at the Crown Beach and ate here for dinner three times. The seafood platter was the standout - seafood cooked in lots of different ways and an awesome selection. The price was unbeatable too. On another night we weren't so hungry so shared some starters such as the Ika Mata which was delicious. The third night was the... More

Gorgeous meal was had here. Great staff, great food and excellent service. Even though we only ordered entrees as my sister and I are not big eaters. It was amazing. Followed by a beautiful glass of NZ wine.

We enjoyed breakfast, lunches and dinners here during our 6 night stay. The staff are the real stars and we enjoyed our interactions with them including a friendly enquiry to see if we were after breakfast on a morning when we slept in a little.

My hubby and I dined here every day for the 5 days we stayed at the crown resort and thoroughly enjoyed it every time - especially the roast buffets on Sunday! Can't wait to go back just to have that mashed potato again! The pizzas/bar snacks were lovely and the staff were even better. Will be back.
