Wow what a relaxed stay my family and I had at Taupo DeBretts, it was a last minute idea so we could only get one night but would have definitely stayed another few nights had i booked ahead. We stayed in a Deluxe Standard Cabin and found it had everything we needed, it was clean, modern, comfortable and warm. The... More

We stayed for 4 nights in a campervan in April. The staff were very friendly at check in and the site we were allocated was excellent. The facilities are spotless and very well looked after. My mother also rented a cabin while we stayed, and that was also spotless and well maintained. The location of the camp is about 5... More

Thanks for taking the time to review us. Since your stay in December we have had several more antennas installed around the Holiday Park which our guests have really enjoyed. Our shower and toilet block is going to be upgraded this year so hopefully when we see you again you will be able to enjoy these amenities. Lucinda More

Private, huge campsites. Location was great. Toilet/shower block needs a renovation bit dated and run down. Showers were variable between hot and cold. Staff excellent helpful, friendly. Hot springs area was great. Day spa was good, rooms were a little uninviting for a "relaxation" treatment. But treatment was great.

Staff great but facilities sooo old. Pools all looking a bit dingy and the damp towel-like material on the side areas felt like an athletes foot farm. It must have been lovely when built (1970s?) but nothing much done since and it shows. If it were a cheap family day I wouldnt mind but the price tag and the 'spa'tag... More

The accommodation at De Bretts is well laid out and has a real holiday feel. The office staff welcomed us in a very personable way and walked us to our accommodation and took time to explain everything personally. It was a great welcome after a long drive.
