This park is amazingly situated right on the beach, the views are spectacular and the rooms are modern, clean and very well appointed. Would definitely recommend for families as there are great park facilities and shopping centres closely.

Our Deluxe Family Villa faced the ocean and was beautiful to wake up to. The queen size bed was so comfortable and our 2 sons had a bunk each to themselves. We have stayed here before, in the same villa, and returned because we loved it so much. A pity that the spa is no longer here. There is a Turkish takeaway near the entrance that was amaaaaazing !!! Shops are right nearby and there is heaps to do around here. It felt like affordable luxury to stay in such beautiful spot for such a great price.

We are pleased to hear you had an enjoyable experience staying with us once again. We're in the process of having our Spa Pool replaced & renovated - complete with a window in the roof so you can stare at the stars! So, it will be up and running for the next time you come and stay with us. The Turkish across the road is a favourite of ours too!

On a recent family holiday we stayed in a beachfront villa.
It was wonderful to wake up to such a great view. Wine on the deck at night also very nice.
Great stay. Will stay again. Plenty of room to stay for quite some time although we only had 3 nights.There were takeaways across and a shopping centre down the road. a great place to stay.

We stayed just one night only (sadly) in a camper travelling from Auckland to Wellington. What a great spot for the campers! Lovely to see a park that hasn't given all the best to sites to the revenue producing cabins/units. The toilet/shower block was very clean and well designed and the kitchen appeared to have everything you would need and again beautifully clean with a huge outdoor but covered dining area with a view of the sea. The camping area was on layered ground so two rows of vans/tents could have the joy of the view. The office staff struck that very delicate balance between efficiency and friendly helpfulness. Thank you guys, we would certainly recommend you.

Stayed for a couple of nights in a beach front spa villa... wow bit of luxury tucked away in papamoa... the weather was stunning, and my room looked right onto the beautiful pacific ocean, with a great view of Mt Maunganui. The staff at reception were amazing, telling me where i could go to eat and giving me options of things to do in the area, the grounds were stunning, so there groundsmen do a wonderful job of looking after the park, room was spotless, so there housecleaning staff certainally are big on attention to detail.... awesome place, awesome break.

the staff at reception was really nice. asked us if we've been in the area before and soon as she knew we were new to the place, immediately offered suggestions on where to go and what to do. we rented a 4 berth cabin with no kitchen and toilet. the cabin itself is basic but was clean and close to the common areas. the toilets are clean and so is the kitchen. the playground, jumping pillow, bikes for hire and the beach kept our 6 year old entertained and he reckons we should go back! :) another plus is that there is a commercial centre (supermarket, fastfood and other retail shops) within walking distance so if you forgot to bring anything and or want to eat out, there are a couple of options close by.

definitely enjoyed our stay here and will stay here again.

Room Tip: drop by kaitae falls. it's just around 20 minutes to drive there plus a 30 minute 2 way trek...

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Papamoa Beach TOP 10 Holiday Resort. It’s great to hear you had an enjoyable experience with us at our Resort.
We pride ourselves on our customer service and it’s always nice to hear such great feedback. Having the shops and the beach in such close proximity is such a unique bonus. The jumping pillows and fun bikes always attract a lot of attention from the little ones and it’s great to hear your son wants to come back, and we hope you do soon!

We treated ourselves to one of the motels on the beach front. Wow - it was amazing! Great views of the beach right up to Mt Maunganui. The whole place is very professional, with a great restaurant right next door. The unit suited us perfectly as a couple, but for families this place must be heaven. Two jumping pillows!

Room Tip: Treat yourself to an upgrade - the garden and beachfront units are worth it.
