Second cheapest park (38 NZD for a powered site) with a hot pool in Rotorua (the 1st one had a broken pump). A good quality place with a bunch of pukekos running around searching for food. The lake is a bit dirty, but the swimming pool and especially the hot pools (2 for adults, one for parents with babies) are... More

We were meant to stay 2 nights but left early. The website shows this as being on the lake front which is not, there isn't even a view of the lake. There is one main pool which is supposed to be heated but was freezing and the other pools were too hot for little ones to go in. The little... More

Can't complain at all. The hot pools were lovely after a days walking. It was sold to us as lake front but clearly isn't but that was an I-site mistake. Friendly staff who were helpful in finding somewhere good for dinner.

At the time of our trip we were a family of 3, with a child of 4. We booked the hotel from our home city, and discovered as we arrived at the site that we were upgraded to a bigger room, all the better! The cabin / site is a trifle far from the naked bus stop (40 mns by... More

It is always difficult for anyone arriving in an unfamiliar new destination, we provide helpful advise on request. Arriving can be more challenging when you are on foot, accompanied by a 4 year old child with all your baggage to transfer as well. What is normally a 20 minute walk for a backpacker with a tent, unhappily became a 40... More

It was a cool place, there were a few thermal pools to relax in and apparently the ground will heat your tent if you are on the right site, but because we didn't end up arriving till about 11pm, we thought maybe we could get a late check out to compensate for not really getting the chance to enjoy the...

We turned up early evening in 2 campers and they were very accommodating finding us a power pitch next to each other. We were pleasantly surprised by the additional facilities with hot pools, a hot water beach, steam oven, and swimming pool. We stayed for 2 nights and found it easy to walk into town and explore the thermal area.

We stayed here for one night and we looked for a campsite to actually enjoy the facilities. This campsite had it all, hot thermal pools, outdoor pool, steam hangi to cook your dinner, boiling mud pools and close to the water. It was reasonably priced and the kitchen facilities we're clean and adequate. Our only problem was there was a... More

Regrettably, we only stayed a night in their private cottage. Full kitchen, BBQ and hangi available. 2min walk to beach where you can dig about 2feet in the sand and get hot bubbling water filling a hole for your own person hot tub. Wonderful staff on site that have been running his place for years attracting wonderful guests.

Spent a dreadful night at a different campsite in Rotorua and decamped to this one the following day. Staff friendly and helpful. Great location. Lovely little thermal pools. The 'dig your own pool on the beach option' looked a bit grotty but that really isn't the campsites fault. Didn't try the Hangi but liked the quirky nature of this extra... More

Stayed in a 2bed cottage. Very basic, very sparse facilities (2 towels for 6), and looked like it hadn't had a proper clean in a good few months judging by the size of the 5 huge cobwebs we tried to avoid. Mineral pools were a nice feature but again pretty dirty. Wouldn't recommend for anything more than an overnight stay... More
