Every time we go to Taupo we visit the hot pools. In winter it's great to book one of the private hot pools and have a soak. Great for tired bodies. We have so much fun in the outdoor pools. A bit chilly in winter but still a great way to spend the day.

We stayed in our of their new rooms with a small kitchenette and a back porch to sit on to watch the sun rise. The hotel is also attached to the hot spring spa and you get half price admission into the spa area as a patron of the hotel. Modern design and fixtures in the hotel room.

Go to the I-site and grab a what's on brochure, they do spa coupons in the middle, two for one! Worth the visit, I never visit Taupo without dropping in. The private pools and included in the price and the water side, although it's colder, is really good. A great place to chill out!

From our arrival at DeBretts until our departure, we had a wonderful four night stay. The reception staff took the time to show us options to park our caravan and set the scene for our visit. The pool complex was first class, and the private pools were no extra cost.

The price was a little up there, but expected in a tourist destination. Was great to relax in the hot pool under the spray bar. Great facilities and clean. Lots of options available. The kids loved the hydroslide and the kids water playground. Will be coming back to relax :)
