“RELAXING FAMILY HOLIDAY ON THE BEACH”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Our first visit to this coastline and Opotiki and one we would definitely repeat. Island View Holiday Park was an excellent place to stay - right beside the beach with fantastic facilities. There was plenty for the kids to do with the trampoline, swimming pool, petanque court, kayaking, volleyball and of course swimming and surfing and on the colder days WiFi! The accommodation was clean, as were the facilities. The staff were friendly and accommodating and we look forward to returning. Thanks Island View.

Room Tip: Luxury cabins were best we have stayed in.

We planned to stay for 3 nights but it was so lovely we extended our stay for 10 days. We arrived here from Switzerland and it was exactly what we were looking for. Beautiful beach with great surf for boogie boarding, free use of pool, playground, free WiFi, extremely clean bathrooms with free showers and plenty of hot water, and really friendly service. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to NZ and highly recommend it.

This camp ground takes camping up another notch. We have stayed 3 years in a row. The location alone makes this stand out - the views are astounding and it is truly beachfront, with an awesome sandy beach great for swimming, surfing, boogie boarding and just enjoying long walks on a beach which feels like it never ends. The owners take huge pride in the camp ground and never stop making real improvements. There's no stupid rules, just a bunch of great campers having a great time. And the sites are a good size!! There's always hot showers, there a pool, beach volley ball, and beach showers. Its kiwi camping at its best. Awesome facilities without being over the top.Can't wait go back

This is a fantastic holiday resort for camping or staying in cabins. Beautiful location, extremely family friendly (we stayed there with our 11 months old son) and a lot of fun activities to do!
The cabins are extremely well equipped with air conditioning/heating, TV sets, fridge etc... The tent sites and cabins are just a few meters (really just about 30-50m) from a beautiful beach.
The holiday park has free showers and free WiFi internet. Everything is extremely tidy and the staff is super friendly.
For our family it was the perfect holiday!

Room Tip: The cabins are excellent if you are not a big fan of tents!

Friendly helpful staff who made our stay fun. Great beachside location and the Free WiFi an added bonus. The new coffee and ice-cream shop a great hit. Enjoyed the beach for walking along and although not into fishing ourselves we enjoyed the fish that others had caught. Having a pool to swim in as well as the beach was great at this sea- side location.

If love having the beach on your doorstep, bonfires, fishing and tranquility this place is for you. Being at the foothills to the East Coast its a great location from which to undertake day trips into the pristine countryside. A trip to one of the 100% pure rivers near Te Kaha, for a riverside BBQ picnic is well worth it, as is horse riding. Overall, what sets Island View apart from the rest is its new swimming pool - great place to chill out.

We intended to Stay a week however a week then strectched to two.
We were welcomed at the gate and shown to our site. Excellent size considering we tow a 27.5 feet caravan. Water on site so was easy to full our self contained tank.
Toilets and showers were clean with plenty of hot water (Best we have ever had)
Love the free WiFi and had no troubles connecting with my laptop.
Enjoyed my coffee fix along with an occassional ice cream.
We Will Be Back
Throughly recommend to all Motor Caravan Members, how about we have of Annual Easter Rally here? I am sure the owners would be happy to put on a concert or two?
