We stayed at the Holiday Park camping in our van and it was nice and clean with some good views. The only downside was that it was a little further from town, so to get to town for dinner or go swim in the lake we had to drive. Overall a good experience and once we got down to the... More

Yes....wow, what can I say. We stayed in Chalet #2 for 2 nights. From the moment we arrived, the staff made us feel so welcome, took us to our Chalet, opened the place up to let some cool air in and made sure we were comfortable. The place was clean and tidy, everything had been thought of. We were given... More

Just booking this resort turned out to be a challenge. It's popularity is it's downfall. More than 2 months out, I still had to completely swap our holiday trip around in order to allow us to land in Taupo outside a dreaded weekend, when booking at De Bretts is like trying to get a taxi at 3am in the club...

From the moment we arrived the friendly staff made us welcome. The clean spacious yet private setting attached to the spa pools made for a very relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable weekend. The reasonable prices at the cafe provided very nice breakfasts. So I would definitely recommend to all to go to De Bretts in Taupo. You WILL really feel better... More

I don't feel the entry price was family friendly at $60 with 2 adults and 2 teenagers. If we didn't have vouchers I'm not sure we would have gone. However we did have an enjoyable couple of hours The facility was very clean and the staff really friendly. The lighting was very effective and subtle.

We have been to DeBretts twice this year and will go back again for sure. First time we went we camped. We loved it! Camp grounds are clean, flat, and are semi separated by hedges. The second time we stayed in a cabin. Again it was good. The cabin is clean, has good living space, tv etc. There were negstives... More

We have visited many times before but this is my first review .. we visited on a winter`s evening and whilst the complex was quite busy the pools were quite delightful with their varying temperatures. The atmosphere was very relaxed and we thoroughly enjoyed .. a great place for all of the family ! :-)

I chose this when looking at motels in Taupo, and although this has world class pools and facilities, our studio was nothing like the standard I would expect of a motel. In truth, it was closer to a really nice camping ground cabin and the pools were an extra charge. We had to drive up to collect our breakfast (no... More
