A great, relaxing place and easily accessible to Auckland for a weekend away. The best of both worlds here at Haruru Falls Resort. Not many other places where you can camp or caravan right at the waters edge in a beautiful location, but only a few minutes to facilities. We are close to Paihia and all it has to offer:... More

We stayed here about 10 years ago and it was great. It has since gone downhill badly however, and we were most disappointed! The site itself looks nice, and was great for our little camper van. However, the pool loungers are truly disgusting, the playground is falling apart, and the kitchen was in such a filthy state that even my... More

Stayed here about a week ago. Lovely location. Wonderful view of falls and nice place to watch the sunset from. Had a nice swim in the pool. Receptionist wasn't the friendliest or forthcoming with information or being helpful. Sunloungers by pool could definitely do with replacing. Would still stay here again though.

When we checked in here we very soon became very disappointed with what we found, If it was not late in the afternoon and if I had not prepaid for our stay here, I would have looked for accommodation elsewhere. I was of the view that if we moved on that there would be little or no chance of getting... More

Haruru Falls is a great place to stay, Jan is a outstanding host and went out of her way to make our stay memorably. Arranged for us to be picked up to go on our Fullers trip out to the Hole in the Rock and Russell etc. Told us of a great restaurant, we were picked up and dropped off.... More

Very disappointing. Shabby poorly run seventies type motel block. Lack of utensils - no breakfast - no bar (despite the signs. Nice spot and nice beds - could be great with refurbishment and effort. We have travelled a lot overseas and were ashamed that this was located in one our prime tourist spots.

Great location. Exceptionally helpful staff - was having mobile phone issues so they made important calls for me. Great views of the falls. Good sized well equipped rooms. Excellent pool. Short drive into Paihia. Excellent value. Highly recommended.

We really look forward to camping at this little gem each year. The setting is just idyllic and the staff are obliging and helpful. Most local tourist activities can be booked at the office. Camping with kids can always be a challenge so having the pool and a restaurant onsite is just great. After a day spent out and about... More

What to say? The positive is the location which is lovely. The negatives, where to begin? Motel accommodation was dirty, broken, lacking in equipment, expensive, not serviced. the pressure in the shower (drip) was terrible, the shower block for the campers was way better. for the cost of the room we were very disapointed

we keep returning to this lovely waterside resort with spectacular views of Haruru falls. Just 5minutes outside of Paihia, it is a good location to explore the Bay of Islands or just stay put and enjoy the relaxing environment. The staff will book your dolphin watching and boat trips and arrange pick up from reception. We stay in our caravan... More
