Wow we were certainly impressed when we pulled into the park for the night .. Stunning park with hot pools and a swim up bar with cafe ... It was quite surreal to be swimming at ten pm in two degrees in the middle of winter ... Even whilst watching a movie on the big screen poolside .. Park facilities... More

Travelling around New Zealand this Top Tens are always my first stop, I know what I am getting, clean, efficient and comfortable. Always a pleasure stopping in at the Top Tens. Have used them for a number of years and by joining the CLub I get a discount.

I booked the Top 10 as I haven't been since the new pool opened up. I thought what a great idea and the kids could just stay in the resort and be in the pool most the day. Before i booked i did ask at what temperature the pools were at. I was initially told 40deg. I immediately booked. On... More

My partner and I were lucky enough to have stayed here just as the new pool area was opened, money well spent on that development. This place has something for everyone from families with kids to couples who just want to relax. Peter in reception was very helpful with getting us booked in with a local rafting adventure while we... More

We stayed here for a few nights in June while we were travelling in a campervan around the North Island. Despite the terrible weather we had a great time - the heated pool with projector screen is amazing and has a great set up for kids and adults alike. Would definitely come back if we were ever in Taupo again.

Congratulations to owners, the Lusty's for this grand holiday resort. This must be the best in NZ and has certainly raised the level and hopefully others may follow their initiative for excellence. The staff are friendly and the facilities without doubt spotless. This is a real family resort where the kids can have great fun. The swim-up bar and cafe... More

Nice campground, kitchen okay, good washing facilities, toilets and showers enough and okay. Everything clean, so everything okay. Very nice extra is that you can swim in the hot swimming pool, watching a movie! In the evening the swimming pool is also open which looks very nice with the coloured lights.

We had a large group of about 15 people and we stayed in 3 self-contained 6 units, which were all located next to each other. This was a bonus for us as it meant we could hop between rooms without disturbing other people. The rooms were very clean, well equipped and comfortable. The site had everything you could want in...

This top ten has a one of a kind hot water pool with bar in the middle and grotto. I highly recommended. My 11 year old did not want to leave. The pool is amazing when it rains! Stay here if you can. They project a movie every night in the pool. Only down side is that you need to... More
