Fodor's Expert Review Bay Adventurer
28 Kings Rd., Paihia, Northland, 0200, New Zealand
If you are traveling on a budget with the family this place is perfect, with dorm rooms, studios, and one-bedroom apartments, which have kitchens, bathrooms, and TVs, and two-bedroom apartments. Brightly colored linen is supplied in all rooms, even the dorms (some are women-only). The apartments have two bedrooms sleeping four, a full bathroom (bubble bath supplied), kitchen, lounge, and deck. A subtropical garden surrounds the pool and hot tub. The beach is a few minutes' walk away, and the hosts will lend you a bicycle or scooter if you feel like taking a ride. Although they serve a continental breakfast, you can also have a hot breakfast delivered to your room from a nearby restaurant.
