We wanted a quiet weekend for two away from the big smoke and decided on Whitianga. On previous visits I'd been struck by the unfortunate urban layout which seems to put all the accommodation on the other side of the busy road into town along the beach. Then I spied pictures of the Beachfront Resort and realised it was an...

This was our first time in Whitianga and I'm grateful that we decided to book at the Beachfront Resort. Very clean accommodation equipped with everything one could need (free WiFi, beach towels and all the kitchenette requirements were met), incredible views, right there at the beach. We'll be back for sure.

Great location - absolutely beach front with very attentive hosts. Great for families as kids can play on trampoline while mum and dad have a cheeky wine taking in the view. Rooms recently renovated - basic, very clean and a bit on the small side for a family of four but absolutely acceptable as a base for activities in the...

Beachfront Resort is the perfect family getaway. It's a small motel with maybe 6 apartment style units on two levels, with a peaceful, friendly vibe. It feels very clean and new. As it says in it's name, it's right on the water with a stunning ocean view. Right in front of the units is a lovely shared yard, with a...

This place lived up to expectations. The unit is sparkling clean with views to die for - it really is "beachfront" with amazing sunrises and sunsets from our private balcony. Kate was so helpful on Reception. I had mistakenly booked the incorrect dates (wrong week) and Kate and Paul could not have been more understanding and just booked us in...

I can't say enough about the location of this hotel. The views from our 2nd floor room were AMAZING. Blissful morning and evening walks along a shell-strewn beach. Short drive from great dining, grocery store, and nearby adventures. Additionally, Paul was an excellent source of information for the area. We graciously accepted his offer to use the hotel kayaks, as...

This was a very welcoming motel. Our daughter and family had been before and I can see why she wanted to return. The rooms are large with separate room for children. Lovely bathrooms and toiletries with hairdryers. Kitchenette was good - fully equipped and tea/coffee/initial milk provided. Straight out onto garden which has steps down to beach. Trampoline and other...

We spent 3 nights at Beachfront Resort. The host was great, everything was spotlessly clean; we had all we needed in the room. Only feedback the Queen bed was a little bit small, a King would be better!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Beachfront Resort and wished it was longer. We had booked a cheaper room but it was not available, so they upgraded us to a beachfront room at no extra price. The room was large, with two single beds divided from the main living space with a door that closed between them. The queen...
