I'm in a wheelchair and I stayed for 5 nights in a Beach Villa. The bathroom was accessible, staff were very helpful, easy to move around the resort. I hired some equipment which was delivered to the resort. I will definitely return and I recommend this anyone.

We stayed in a beach front villa and absolutely loved it. The bathroom we had was amazing. The view from the room was amazing. The day bed was amazing and the king sized bed was so comfortable. We loved this place and next time we are in Papamoa we will definitely stay here again.

I could not describe how much I love this place. The beach was clean with Mt. Maunganui view. We rented a caravan and book a lot right facing the beach. The toilet is well maintain and very clean. There is laundry room provided. A few minutes walk out, you can get Asian cooking food with a reasonable price. It is... More

Most other accommodations that are close to the beach without and actual view of the ocean. The spa villas are on top of the dunes overlocking the beach, just 30m from it. A well maintained BBQ is between the villas and the view from the glass sliding doors is magnificent. We stayed in nr 24 but any of the "SPA"... More

The place itself is good, kids enjoyed themselves but not somewhere I would go again. Good park with 2 jumping pillows for the kids. The closest bathroom facilities for us were OK, small with only 3 toilets & about the same amount of showers, it wasn't until I met a friend who told me about the better facilities higher up...

What a beautiful campsite! Very clean and tidy! The resort is at the beach with a great playground for the kids. The coffee-caravan every morning was a huge plus! The resort staff ensure the rules are adhered to and although this my put some people off, it ensures everyone is enjoying their stay.

We are very lucky to be located right on Papamoa Beach but only moments from everything in town with Papamoa Plaza and Fashion Island just 5 minutes walk away! During peak season we get regular visits from some local companies such as The Whipped Baker and Mr Whippy which is great. We also offer a free Kids Club Mon –... More

My Wife and I had just left Golden Grove Camp and it was like going from night to day, what a totally fantastic site this is. We will definitely stay again. Our only minor criticism is that some of the ablution blocks are a bit far away if you have mobility difficulties. We feel that this could be something that... More

Thank you for writing a great review about your stay with us at Papamoa Beach. We have 3 amenity blocks located within the Resort. We do have an area which has toilets only, we tend to place self contained motorhomes here because of this.
