We had a wonderful night at this holiday park. We arrived at about 6.20pm and had dinner at Donaldo's. The next morning we catch the sunrise from nearby beach. Good service and very friendly staff. We like the family bathroom next to our lot equipped with a hair dryer too. Nice on the beach holiday park!

We stayed here with our 7 year old son and 2 month old. Our motel was very spacious and well equipped for family living. The heating was great and warm. Chrissy & Karl were great hosts and made us feel very welcome. Full marks to this TOP 10, everything you need plus more. Small touches like chocolate and biscuits in... More

WOW we stayed here for two nights and found everything fantastic, from check in to our room. Love the little touches as well, from the chocolates through to the biscuits and the way all the linen is folded. Cannot fault a thing. Great Hosts and great staff. The views straight over the road on to the beautiful beach is hard... More

This is a brilliant campground ~ Ticks all the boxes with great staff, very clean facilities and large spacious camping cites! Nz Has fantastic beaches but I would have to put this beach in the top 5 categories! Expansive, golden sands with fantastic surf. We visited mid week and we were pretty much the only people on the beach !... More

We spent one night in powered site here as stopover and were pleasantly surprised by the park. The amenities were one of the best we have seen with a huge kitchen and heaps of dining space. The playground was great and plenty to do for kids of all ages. Our toddler had a blast just playing with the steering wheel... More

First off - super friendly and amazing staff (we’ve come to expect it at the Top10s, but Carl and his team stood out). The campsite (night one) and cabin (night two) were close to the shared facilities (bathrooms, kitchen, showers), which were all spotless. Unlike many campgrounds, this one had some cookware, glasses and flatware as well as dish detergent... More

Thanks for the great review Julie R. Gosh you will give Carl a big head. No seriously, Carl, myself, and the rest of the team at the park, work really hard every day to make all guests feel welcomed. The staff (including management) work together to ensure that guests have a clean, tidy environment to stay. Along with a few... More

the site is a little way out of the main town but it is near the beach, the facilities are very good and were well kept even though its a busy site, there is hard and grass standing for motorhomes which is useful as it rains a lot in these parts

Just a couple of hundred metres from a sandy beach that stretches for miles in either direction can be found this idyllic campsite. A great welcome awaits all visitors and it is not long before you view a camp ground so well kept, it could be financed by a local authority!! It is not but the operators should be proud... More
