A family of four (2 daughters aged 11 & 13) who camped by the beach for a week over the Xmas holidays. Positives * Nice safe swimming beach with lifeguards (just mind the jellyfish) * Good clean facilities. * Good level of security made us feel safe (e.g. barrier arm at entrance). * Restaurants and shops within a 5min walk...

Wow! This place has got the views. We stayed in a Villa for two nights. Our view was stunning. We had a New Zealand Christmas tree flowering out deck door that had the Pacific ocean as its back drop. In the resort photo above we were the end villa unit pictured. The villa was massive. It had cathedral ceilings panoramic...

We have spent the last 29 years camping in our caravan at Papamoa. We look forward to our summer holidays up there. The camp facilities are first class and the staff are friendly and helpful. We're already looking forward to next year.

We have stayed twice at Papamoa and will be sure to return. Great set up, flat sites, lots of abolition blocks, good noise control. Everything is just easy and works. Lots of staff who are always cleaning. The only drawback is the cost of their campsites during peak season. $100 per night on the 7 Jan is enough to make...

Love spending the last part of Jan in Papamoa. Settled weather, a beach just 15m away from our tent and the shops close by for supplies. We stay in a power tent site on the beach front, have stayed in the same place for years and love it. A few little gripes; kids are charged a flat fee rather than...

If there is a place I'd love to go back to every summer, it's this place. We stayed in a villa which is by the sea. Our room opens up to the soothing & relaxing smell of the ocean's breeze. You forget all your stresses in life admiring the magnificent view in front of you. I am a nocturnal person,...

We stayed here shortly after Christmas, a lovely campground near the beach with great amenities - however felt it was very over full with guests and vehicles. Some tent sites had up to 3 tents and one or two vehicles. People also seemed to park over the access ways making getting in with a caravan and car difficult, had to...

We went to this place when my kids were young and now they have grown up to 14-15 yrs old. They still love this place. They enjoyed their time at bouncy pillows and rented a bike (4 people bike) to cycle around the resort. Good reception service, convenience location and beautiful view (we had the seaview family room). Good kitchen...

This was a stay for us that was alluring for several reasons. Firstly the camp itself is set in the most beautiful spot, with the beach in all its glory right across from our tentsite. Surf, sand, and sun right at our doorstep. Next, our tentsite was a generous size and allowed us some privacy from the neighbours, which can...
