This place is awesome!!! It is a beautiful short walk to geothermal pools and to lake taupo. The reception staff were really friendly and went out of their way to book activities for us. The resort pool was an added bonus!!!!!! It was 12 degrees out of the water and so soaking in the heated pool at dusk with a... More

Stayed on Tuesday 6th September for one night. We booked a powered site for a campervan. This place was amazing, a huge heated pool, clean toilet/shower facilities and the grounds well set out and cared for. This should be the standard for all holiday parks in NZ.

Awesome experience. The toilets were clean, the showers were clean, the kitchen was clean. We had plenty of parking space for our camper. There was a swim up bar and thermal pools- what more could one want!

We loved staying here. 2 adults and 2 young kids. The playground for the kids is great, and the pool is fantastic. Feels like you are away in a tropical island somewhere. The only thing about the pool is it is quite harsh on the body, we had 'grated' toes and the kids had scratches and scraps from jumping in... More

This place is AMAZING! This is the BEST Top 10 we have stayed at so far- if you are in the area, you must stop here. The pools are heated, there is a massive movie screen in the pool area and a swim up bar with food and drink, both alcoholic and non alcoholic. The washing machines have laundry detergent... More

We worried that we would be disappointed as the expectations were quite high., and it definitely wasn't the cheapest place to stay! Honestly it was worth every cent!! The pool made us feel like we were on some kind of tropical island... Food and cocktails were very reasonably priced. Staff were friendly and helpful. We stayed in an ensuite cabin... More

We availed the camping powered site overnight. We had a fine experience. We didn't get to use the thermal pool because we arrived late. I suggest the thermal pools will be open until midnight. That will be very much appreciated especially to clients who will be arriving very late.

This is the second time we have been here in the winter, perfect place to stay for day trips to the snow etc. Last time was during all the renovations, this time all the amenities were available. The new pool complex is sensational, we were there in July and the kids were still using it - warm enough for the... More

This holiday resort has many features which make it very attractive. For example, it has a thermally heated pool with giant screen and bar. It's also quite centrally located. The kitchen and toilet facilities are also of a good standard. However, we were surprised to discover on our arrival at 6pm that our three guests would have to pay NZ$18... More
