We had a one bedroom unit and found it to be an extremely comfortable and immaculately clean place to stay after a very long flight. Well appointed kitchenette with everything you need to cook a meal, and free laundry also available on site, which was very helpful. Free wifi and parking next to your unit and a cute little patio were other added bonuses. It was everything we needed and exceeded our expectations. Quiet, comfortable bed, and a great nights sleep when we needed it. The manager is also very helpful and nice, and she is running these units top notch! Nice walk down on the beach and there is also a hot tub (we were too tired to use it, but it looked very nice). Thank you for a great place to rest and recover before we head off on our camper van adventures! Cas

Only stayed one night at the Waipu Cove Resort. Friendly staff and clean rooms with a separate bedroom. Great shower and bathroom area. Also a nice outdoor area to relax in at the rear of the unit we were in. Very close to beach for a stroll or just to sit and watch the waves. Nice place overall and we would go back there again.

Pretty good value for a stay right next to the beautiful Waipu cove beach. Clean rooms, comfortable bed, well set up, very helpful staff. The only negative is that if you are expecting anything resort-like you will probably be a little disappointed. It does have a nice outdoor swimming pool which would be good for the summer but nothing else. But if you want to hang out on the beach or mosey around town this place should suit you fine.

Hi WainuiTim
Thank you for your review and love to hear you enjoyed your stay. Yes re-branding is on the cards once all the upgrade projects have been completed in the next couple years. We do have the pool area with swimming pool (which should be heated in the next month) and heated spa pool. We did once have a restaurant attached but alas had been sold off privately. If you combine the whole area of Waipu Cove with the Cafe, Bar Restaurant, Convenience Store, Play Grounds, Reserve and Direct Beach Access together you do get a small piece of paradise to enjoy. Once again thank you and hope you do get to return one day. Safe Travels.

So handy to lovely beaches, and several great restaurants. We went for a lovely morning walk on the beach, great to walk out of your unit and be able to walk straight on to the beach. The swimming pool looked good but a bit cold when we were there but apparently it is soon to be heated. Friendly helpful service and the unit was immaculately clean. We will definitely be back.

Studio Units tiny. 2 bedroom apartments ok-full kitchens but one bedroom sits next to another studio unit meaning you can hear everything. No tvs in bedrooms of 2 bed units, one small 1 in lounge and very uncomfortable furniture to sit on. Modern units, nice outdoor area to relax & generally reasonably quiet. Single beds have shocking mattresses very lumpy. Had a 1bed unit initially, asked why bedroom door was locked- told I wasn't allowed to use it unless we paid extra! Or sleep on single bed in lounge.. um I'm 6ft tall no thanks! No views of beach etc. Also no cellphone coverage except up on road, but free wifi provided which was good. Manager extremely unhelpful and very rude. Offered to kick us out and re rent rooms if we didn't like them- wow. Came back early morning to find our room had been semi cleaned during evening, wasn't impressed with valuables etc lying around & my own face cloths & handtowels bought from home taken from my room ! Never did get them back. They've lost a lot of business through us, silly in this day and age of social media and so forth to be so rude- word of mouth spreads very quickly. A lot of us travel for work in that area, several rooms rented at one time for up to a week several times a month... none of us will stay again.. that's a lot of $ down the drain.

Nothing much to say here except there is always two sides to every story. All I will say is no wonder there business finds it hard to accommodate some of their workers. No one should have to put up with such attitude and rudeness to spoil their day.
