Excellent Location

Posted 20-Feb-2015
Pros: Location
Cons: Some rooms are on the road. Make sure you ask for one that isn't.
We would stay here again because of its location. The beach is beautiful and the rooms are within sight of it. We had an end room and the wall was screened so we looked out at vegetation. Restaurant was okay.

Fantastic view

Posted 06-Feb-2015
Pros: View
Cons: Some form of cover to bedrooms. Give out wifi information when registering. I had to go back for mine and got soaked again. Would also be helpful to
Good sized room with the most superb view and went off to sleep with the sound of waves. I had the room the furthest away from reception which was a long walk with steps. It was outside which would have been lovely in the sun but it was pouring with rain when I arrived so got absolutely soaked on my way to the room. Not a good start. Had dinner and breakfast which were fine but not exceptional.

Beautiful place, wonderful room, terribly mediocre food - an insult for the money charged and at odds with the rest of the place. First really bad meal we've had in NZ.

Beach Front Resort

Posted 11-Jan-2015
Pros: The restaurant, the closeness of the beach and the local cafe
Cons: Get rid of the sand flies, next time the appropriate cream will be taken
Location: The beach is just outside your room The pancake rocks and blow holes were a great trip The local cafe and street traders The seal colony
We arrived here after a long trip from Kaikoura to be met by very pleasant reception staff and a really nice room The location of the beach and the rainforest back drop made this a really fantastic location to spend a couple of days The walks around and over the pancake rocks and the trips around the blow holes were also great The short ride to the Seal colony was another worth while visit The noise from the frogs in the pond outside the room makes it feel that you are actually in a rainforest

Punakaiki is on the wet West Coast of New Zealand. The tropical rain forest are very beautiful and the pounding sea is very spectacular. Bring your rain gear but be ready for some great views, especially if the sun comes out. The resort is very nice and we had a nice dinner at the hotel resturant.

Stunning location and views, we were very lucky to have a superb weekend weather wise, hence amazing sun and moon sets. Had an room in the top lodge which was beautiful, lovely big room, comfy bed, all amenities very good. Lovely surroundings, very peaceful at night.
