“no sleep,poor management”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2011

been there for 3 nights only and lucky that only 3.We payed for a Chlet 2 separate bedroom.i had no sleep as in between roof and rain drain was a bird nest full of birds and they would make noise all night long.We ask management people to do something.The male manager climb up ladder and pretended that he's doing something but when night came-same "lovely" noise.There is no video or dvd in the room-it didn't bother me but it is specify on their website as it is.Chalet not proper clean.I am not a fussy person but we've payed 200NZD /night.With that money could have been rented a full house by the beach.The Chalets and the other smaller villas are situated in the middle of campground and tent camping place,so if you do not like noise-other famillies singing or talking loud, then it's not for you.Swiming pool is as described;looks lovely-a bit too small place but nothing negative to say.If you have children full of life,I recon that is a good place to stay as many families around-tent,campervans,and place is fenced,away from sea or other water.

Room Tip: before you book,call them and ask if the bird nest is still there(Middle Chalett)
