Have just spent a week at Pohara Holiday Park and will definitely be returning. We had a self contained unit right beside the beach and enjoyed every minute of it. Unit was serviced everyday with clean towels, rubbish etc. A little expensive but with the facilities,beach right outside and the Christmas holiday break ... compensates costs.

We only stayed here for one night as we were journeying on but wish we could have visited during the summer season. Usually lack of privacy in the Top 10 parks which is our main issue with them but otherwise, good amenities and the location is lovely. A store right next door which proved handy,

It was hard to find a place that had two rooms available at the time so the I-site staff suggested here. The cabin was adequate, yet a bit expensive for its simplicity. The insulation was bad so the heater had to run constantly to keep the unit warm. The top of our bed was by the window, with blinds not... More

Thank you for visiting Pohara and spending time to review. Pleased you enjoyed your walk on the beach. I think you may have stayed in one of our qualmark graded 4 star motels, but not sure. These motels were built with conservation in mind and are insulated with wool batts. Extra bedding is located in the top wardrobe and more... More

This is such a special place, we had a basic cabin which certainly wasn't basic. Spotlessly clean and very cosy, comfy and cost effective. Beautiful facilities and the reception girls were great fun with plenty of info for the surrounding area. So much quieter than the Eastern Abel Tasman. Well worth the drive down the amazing mountain road to get... More

Had a beachfront cottage. Was very nice, and very relaxing. The staff is nothing short of outstanding and uber helpful. They answered many of my question before even asking - a sign of experience and commitment to service. This is ABSOLUTELY beachfront as opposed to others around the South Island. The park is big, clean modern and has easy access,... More

So pleased you enjoyed your stay and found our staff outstanding, a message I have passed on. Our Beach front location is a real draw card with the Pohara Beach only metres away. What a nuisance it must have been to hurt your back while holidaying, hopefully you still enjoyed your trip. More

I stayed the night before I started the ride over the heaphy and on my return. Friendly helpful staff, they were kind enough to store my kit whilst I was away so it would left in my car for 2 days. Great location, reasonable rooms, good price, good facilities. Very happy with my stay and the staff.

I stayed with a friend in one of the standard cabins for a night. They're very good value for money. Spacious kitchen, every cabin comes with pots, cutlery etc. Which were brand new. The queen size bed was very soft, the bunks were very comfy. Highly recommended!
