8/10 Very good

The Manuia Resort is a fantastic place to stay. The staff are really friendly and helpful - nothing seems too much trouble. It's quiet and has no children, a plus for me. Beautiful infinity pool, snorkels and kayaks to borrow, comfy loungers to enjoy the sun or shade on the beach or around the pool. Great restaurant with a delicious range of dishes though it is expensive. Continental and cooked breakfast in the beachside restaurant was included in our clean, gorgeous room's price. The huge plus though is the location. Amazing beachfront units with palms and lush gardens from which we enjoyed the ocean and pool view as well as the passing whales. A few more and cheaper bar snack-style food offerings would make it pretty much perfect. Not the cheapest place I've stayed but I would go back in a heartbeat.

8/10 Very good

The hotel had everything you wanted for a great holiday. It was just a shame that our complimentary pick up from the airport never arrived as expected,also nobody showed us to our room and there was no goodwill gesture offered even though there was a weak apology for their mistake. Otherwise everything else was fine and we very much enjoyed our stay.

Pool was beautiful. Felt like this place was a bit oversold. There was no spa/massage as advertised. Menu at restaurant was very limited. Cocktails were less than average. Outdoor shower was interesting. Would have been nice to have an indoor shower as well.
