Stayed at Papamoa Beach Resort in a beach front villa for a girls weekend. The location was amazing! walking or biking distance to supermarket, local shops, cafes and shopping areas. Idyllic beachfront location, with beautiful views that we enjoyed from the Villas front deck. The villa was perfectly cleaned, modern and spacious with little extras like electric blankets on the...

This past weekend we had a girls weekend away and stayed at one of the beach front villas at Papamoa Beach resort. WOW! A perfect location right on the beach front, perfect for a wine while watching the sunset and listening to the waves crashing at night. In the morning we were able to enjoy a peaceful breakfast on the... More

We stayed overnight in a campervan. Our sight was powered and right near the showers on the higher ground for the sunrise view. This is an amazing setup. A campground to suit the stunning beach. The place was spotless, clean and well signposted. Staff were friendly. I want to go back in summer!

Waking up in a cosy bed looking out to the ocean with an incredible sunrise...it is the perfect start to the day! Definitely recommend their Beachfront Bliss Villa - whether you're after a romantic retreat or just some much needed time-out. It's worth the few extra $. Loved the deep soak bath with a view of the sea, and the... More

Had a great stay in a spa beachfront room. Only downside was the weather but then it is the middle of Winter. Will definitely recommend to friends and stay again. Local take aways and restaurant a breath away, really enjoyed the food at both. Site was quiet (Winter) but there is privacy in the accommodation anyway.

Very well managed holiday park and good price for a powered site. The very nice lady Ruby at the reception was very helpful and friendly. We got a Seaview slot near the amenities best of both worlds... kitchen area was spotless and there's a sheltered bbq area right outside. Didn't get to use as it was too cold. Kids where... More

The view from unit 17 was incredible being so close to the beach. We arrived around 5pm on a cold wet winters afternoon, check in was easy. The unit itself was well laid out & tidy, it had two single beds in a separate room with a queen in the living area, which was convenient. The unit was cold to... More

Nice and clean, our holiday cabin was just a walk down the hill to the beach. The staff were friendly and we hired a dune buggy for the girl to ride around on. The spa was amazing and we enjoyed a sun set on the beach. The huge bouncy pillow was fun for everyone. We enjoyed the winter fest held... More
