Fodor's Review

Don't let the Spanish/Māori blend of name confuse you—this is an interesting and delightful resting spot for your Coromandel explorations. The hacienda-style building overlooks the Firth of Thames; from most guest rooms you'll be able to enjoy a stunning outlook, especially at sunset. The Hauraki and Ponui Island rooms upstairs (en suite, Queen beds) get the best views, there is also the cozy, comfortable Hunua room with en suite downstairs and the Garden Family room, with shared bathroom. Hosts Drew and Christine will whip up a continental or cooked breakfast if you wish, otherwise there are shared kitchen facilities for all guests. You can also prearrange a dinner, though Thames township and its cafés is a 12-minute drive away.
