Previously the Top 10 group but now under new name. This is a really good campground with all the usual but very good clean and functional facilities. We have taken a powered site there at least four times. The beach which runs for 10 km either way at least is good for walking on and swimming. There are shops, supermarket,... More

We only stayed one night on a powered Sea View van site... and what a "Sea View"! We enjoyed a beautiful walk along the beach and other holiday makers were polite and friendly. The resort has great facilities, brilliant showers and large modern ablutions. A wonderful start to our holiday in New Zealand!

We rented three beachfront villas with family and friends for a long weekend. The view from the villa was breath taking, the beach is right in front and there is plenty of room to sit and enjoy the vista and the sea breeze. The villa itself was really well appointed, by far the best of any campground cabin we have... More

Just spent a long weekend at Papamoa Beach Resort, what a beautiful spot! My cabin had views of the water and a lovely deck for watching the sunset. The cabin was clean and very cosy, and the facilities were great. It was close to shops but the best part was being able to walk along the beach from my front... More

We loved our stay in the beach front villa, was amazing waking up to the beautiful sunset. We loved how it is close to all the shops. The resort had everything we needed and more. Just wish I had my tog's so I could enjoy the spa . Would highly recommend to everyone.

Lovely suite right on the beach, super helpful and friendly staff even as we arrived for a very late checkin but everything in the room was prepared and ready. Supermarket just over the road for any essentials needed.

We stayed here only one night and wish it had been longer! The beach was beautiful and perfect for walking and searching for shells. The accommodations were perfect, clean and comfortable. We would happily stay here again. We loved the fish and chips takeaway just down the street.

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).
