“Perfect Pakiri Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

This holiday park was a perfect spot to relax for a few days out of the city. We went off season but the facilities were lovely and clean and well kept. The grounds were well maintained and the kids playground was in great condition (sometimes these can be pretty sad, dilapidated places!).
The staff were super helpful and we will return to this site for sure.
I agree with other reviewers that the price is on the high side but I'd rather pay a bit more and have everything just right.

The camp is located next to the beach and is well maintained although the facilities are pretty basic..
I agree with other reviewers that the owners are really helpful but the place is let down by its high prices that dont encourage you to stay.
We were in a powered site (2 adults) and were charged $60 per night which is much hgher than anywhere else we have stayed.
The rate card also noted an inrease in rates over the peak period to $90 per night for two at powered site.
So a nice location it is but there are plenty of other beach campsites , with the same level of facilities, but at a much more normal price.

We stayed here in one of the beachfront studio units, we really enjoyed the beautiful views and the lovely walks along the beach.
The staff were really friendly and were helpful with questions about the area. Highly recommended for a relaxing holiday away from city life!

Room Tip: Beachfront Cottages have an excellent view

A great winter weekend away. Beautiful and relaxing! Tracey thank you so much for looking after us so well. She knew we had a 9 month old and had put an extra heater in the babies room just in case we needed it. While we were there our baby had an unfortunately timed tummy virus and Tracey was so caring towards us! We will be back!

Room Tip: We stayed in beachfront cabin 5. Great with a baby as there was a room that was a bit further from t...

10 years since our last visit to the Holiday Park and it's still the little paradise we remember; it's positioned on one of NZ's best beaches. The cabins have been re-decorated and are really clean and comfortable and the view was beautiful out to the white sands of Pakiri beach. We found the staff to be very friendly.

This place is soooo worth the drive... The new managers are extremely welcoming, even going in and turning the heaters on in our room, knowing our arrival at this time of year is chilly at a 6pm check in.... Our fridge was stocked with fresh milk for a hot cuppa...
Their presentation of the room was lovely too....!
We watched the sun rise over the tranquil views of the ocean....Just picturesque
We look forward to coming back sooner rather than later...Thank you so much Dave & Tracey, see you again soon

Room Tip: Highly recommend the beach front
