We stayed in a very comfortable cabin with shared bathroom facilities. Being just across from these facilities was fine. The walls were a little thin and the people next door a little noisy but it was still great. Taupo is a great little town. The discounted pools at the resort are a MUST! We will stay longer next time and... More

Awesome accommodation, and they were very hospitable and willing to help when they knew we were a bachelorette party. We had a couple of self contained units that were joined to each other, and we were out of the way of other guests. Very cool venue.

The accommodation was very comfortable.View excellent it was over looking the spa pools down the bottom. And When you wake in the morning you looked straight out into the forest with the steam rising from the spa pool area. I would recommend it. You walk down to breakfast at there little cafe, the breakfast was worth the price as well.... More

Good facilities, excellent pool, helpful and friendly staff. We booked very late and could not get the rooms we wanted but it didn't really matter as the place is so nice anyway. Nothing negative that I can think of.

This property has been really well thought out. The grounds are beautifully maintained and there is accommodation for every budget. We booked a two bedroom motel, it was modern, and very clean and tidy. The pool facilities were great for the whole family. Thanks for a great stay!
