Puntakaiki Resort. A pleasant surprise. Comfortable room- pleasant Reception welcome. Stunning beach views and rolling surf-just a short drive (a minute) to Pancake Rocks, Blowholes and great walks. Can strongly recommend.

Very nice place to stay & outstanding location. Service a bit slack & would hate to see it when busy but then no doubt more staff would be on duty. Downstairs units noisey if upstairs unit occupied. Really tidy clean spacious rooms though & the most beautiful rugged scenic spot, would reccomend it 8/10

One of the more expensive places we stayed. Worth it for the view and so close to the blowhole (300m). Food in the restaurant was not quite to quality I'd hoped for.

We were met with wonderful staff from the moment we walked in. We wanted to catch the sunset over the ocean with a drink from our balcony so the lady at the bar even carried the champagne to our room while we got our bags from the car. This excellent service continued at dinner in the restaurant and again at breakfast. All up , it was wonderful so congratulations to all the staff involved.

Very happy with this hotel as it seemed choice of accommodation was limited. Right on the beach, warm and private. Very easy walk to the blow holes which were spectacular. This area is truly beautiful. If travelling in winter make sure you carry lunch as a lot of shops and hotels were closed for winter. Restaurant was lovely. Worth the extra money to be right on the beach. Definately recommend to my friends!

We stayed at the resort for one night during a two-week trip around South Island. The resort has an excellent beach-front location and the view from the restaurant is beautiful. Food was well presented and the staff were helpful and friendly. We would recommend the resort to friends without hesitation.

Loved Punakaiki Resort, location, the sunset, the eco ness of the resort, the restaurant was good food and wine (maybe a little pricey!) but overall very good stopover.

This is a lovely Resort Hotel in a wonderful area. The facilities were good and the service was very good. The restaurant meal in the evening was very average and expensive however

Fabulous position. Unexpected sea view in what was standard room. Rooms generally well planned and presented. Inexplicably there was a rusted metal soap holder in the shower which just detracted from what was otherwise good quality facilities. Staff all attentive and friendly. The downside the restaurant food [we had an evening meal and breakfast] which being charitable could best be described as mediocre. Avoid the restaurant - there are alternatives for all meals elsewhere in Punakaiki.

The rooms were very good but we were unable to park the car anywhere near the room. The hotel was in an isolated position and when we tried to reserve a table in the restaurant for dinner, we were told they were too busy with large parties of guests. We would not stay there again.

Four of us stayed for one night in January 07. Our rooms were lovely and had excellent views. Bathrooms (shower rooms actually) could have been better lit (no external window) but great shower. Even though we weren't looking for kitchen facility, they looked good for anyone wishing to self-cater. The location of this hotel is beautiful and the service was excellent - all the staff were very obliging. Would thoroughly recommend.
