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.

Perfect
We loved our stay at Manuia, it really is a special place. Smaller than most resorts and lovely and quiet…no kids under 16. The rooms are great, we booked beachfront which was amazing. Lovely grounds, team, and beach. Highly recommend and we can’t wait to go back!!

Nice little spot
This is a lovely quiet resort. The rooms were nice with lots of space and an outdoor shower which was pretty great. Beautiful pool and one restaurant on site. The night we arrived, we tried to get a drink in the bar and some dinner but they were quite busy and asked us to try somewhere else. This has never happened to me before, we were quite tired but walked down the road for dinner. Only dined in the restaurant once, the food was lovely. Breakfast was pretty limited. Pancakes, toast, fruit and cereal. If you arrived after 9am then most of the fruit was gone and they didn't seem to replenish it. We had an ant problem in one of our rooms so had to move out to another room. We all ended up in one room for the night as reception was closed (limited hours) and there was no one to help. Mary in particular was wonderful with shifting the girls to their new room and even doing our washing after our buggy ride. Staff were very friendly and helpful and this is a beautiful location to relax and enjoy the views.
