We had the one bedroom motel room. QB and SB in bedroom and a single bed in lounge. Unit was immaculate, well set out and spacious. Modern appliances and a single drawer dishwasher. Our unit was at the back of the resort and was quiet at the top of the hill. Walking to the side of our unit you got... More

We got a bit of a bargain at DeBretts due to staying midweek in the off season. We stayed in a 2 bedroom chalet with all day pool passes and a bottle of wine for $147 a night. The 2 bedroom chalets are set a way back from the road, and so there was no traffic noise. They are completely... More

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 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 ! :-)
