We rented a 3 bedroom apartment for our family in mid January. We had a ground floor beach front apartment. The apartment was well presented and had plenty of room for our family - there was enough seating outside for 23 people:). The kitchen was very well equipped and having 2 bathrooms was great. We used the pool most days...

This was more than we were waiting for! These apartments are excellently located close to Mount Maunganui and its center, right beside the beautiful beach. We had a executive apartment of two bedrooms, including a spacy living room and a kitchen, two bathrooms and a view to the beach. Having both the washing machine and the dryer in the apartment...

We were guests at the lovely Reef Beachfront Apartments and enjoyed our stay immensely. A well-managed property, with excellent facilities and amenities, what we loved about it was its proximity to the beach and it was also a close drive (walkable too) to the town centre. The heated pool was a welcome respite from the cold winds at the beach!

Very clean and well appointed. We shared the weekend with another couple and were upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartment. There is a supermarket near by and the beach is across the road. We had a pool view apartment on the ground floor which had a very nice balcony and view of the pool area. The pool is heated and...

It's been a couple of years since we last went & whilst no major renos have been done the reef is perfect for a family break The apartment was clean, everything you want, the pool brilliant only negative was the free wifi isn't strong enough! Too slow but the weather was shocking so perhaps that caused it! We will be...

Stayed here for a week on business. Fantastic accommodation with very pleasant owners. Certainly stay there again. Apartments are not serviced for duration of stay which means you have that feel of stay at home freedom without having to worry about cleaners going through the place. Right on the waterfront with easy walking distance to The Mount Township

Stayed for 2x nights to attend a wedding. The management was friendly and helpful from the start, always smiling and friendly and happy to assist. We stayed in a poolside apartment, which was huge (much bigger than expected). Full kitchen facilities were great (enough space for the bride to put together her cake), and having two bathrooms was great. Also...

We are pleased that you enjoyed the facilities at The Reef and that it made for easy last minute preparations for that lovely wedding! It is always fun to have that buzz around too - lots of laughter and VERY happy people, in anticipation of the 'big day'! Thank you for your very comprehensive review. Kind regards, Lyn & Murray
