We stayed at the DeBretts site in our camper van for Christmas 2012 and had a great time. The sites, for camper vans, are spacious, nicely arranged and a number of them are separated by trimmed hedges, all nice and private.
Kitchen facilities are good and everything needed is provided, including 3 BBQs upon which I cooked an excellent BBQ'd Full English breakfast for Christmas Day! The toilet and shower facilities are really due for in upgrade (please turn down the noisy radio speaker in the gents bathroom area!) and whilst, at first glance they appear insufficient for the number of guests on the camp site, there are an additional number of other "Unisex" toilets and showers which are modern and clean.
The site is quite a distance from both Lake Taupo and the town. It is up a longish hill (500+m?) from the lake shore and is not an ideal walk. It is as far again to the outskirts of the town, so really it is better to drive to either place and then park up.
The lake side offers a very pleasant stroll with wonderful views across the lake. The town itself is attractive and offers a wide range of shops that cater for all your needs.
On the DeBretts site are also the excellent hot springs themselves with a number of pools with differing temperatures and some really delightful private pools. Children are well catered for with an excellent array of water slides.
Finally, I must compliment DeBretts on their massage and treatment facilities located in the pool area. We enjoyed excellent massages (our Christmas presents) and were very pleased with the treatments.
Overall, a very pleasant location with good facilities within close access to all that Lake Taupo has to offer.
