Great location for a Top 10, with the most beautiful, stunning, very long beach. Great beach for surfing and boggie boarding (which we managed to do for a couple of days). My 11 year old son made good use of the jumping pillows & mini-tennis court (and so did I!). We stayed in a 2 bedroom garden villa which was... More

This is the first time in a top 10 holiday resort so we have no comparisons that we can make with other holiday parks/camp grounds and the like. This was a family gathering so we had a garden villa and four cabins to cater for all of the family. The garden villa was very spacious and comfortable with a huge... More

New Zealand is truly a beautiful place and the Papamoa holiday park really encompasses this beauty. Waking up to native bird calls and the sound of the waves crashing onto pristine sand is an experience I will never forget. Swimming in the ocean at sunrise, strolling the beach to return to have breakfast on the porch overlooking the bay, what... More

We stayed for 4 nights & thoroughly enjoyed the room and environment we recieved. The self contained 2 bedroom bach was very clean & most satisfactory. The play ground was loads of fun as well. The customer service was also excellent. Papamoa is a beautiful place with lots of places to eat & drink. Would highly recommend this holiday park... More

We have a caravan on the Papamoa Resort and have always found the place clean, tidy with excellent staff. A great family camp right at the sea's edge. Highly recommend to all. Everything that you need is within walking distance but not close enough to interfere with the "camp" ethos.

We stayed here late last year for 3 nights in a 2 bdrm beach front villa - 2 adults and 2 children. The decor was modern and the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was well appointed. Great outdoor deck with views up and down the amazing beach, with a gas BBQ outside the unit. Parking was right outside the... More

We stayed in many of the Top 10 sites whilst in NZ for a few weeks, but Papamoa was the best, the facilities, the staff and especially the location are STUNNING. My only regrets, 1. we didn't have bikes, it's a few km outside Mt Maunganui, but they have superb cycling facilities, and 2. we only stayed 2 nights. It... More

We live nearby in Tauranga but wanted an easy, stress-free break away from the norm so decided to stay at Papamoa Beach Top 10 for two nights. The Beachfront Spa Villas are amazing! Opening up directly out onto the dunes above Papamoa beach the views are incredible. The huge king size bed was bliss and the spa-bath was a perfect... More

The positioning of Papamoa Hoilday Resort right on a stunning, long golden sand beach was a real result - a fabulous spot for body-boarding, kite-surfing & generally larking about in the breakers, which we took full advantage of. The chalet/studio was very high spec/stylish, with a large bed, huge bathroom with a jacuzzi, well-equipped kitchen & a deck which we... More
