“Fun and well organise camp site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Had a lovely time. :) well organised campsite. Beautiful views of the lake and the waterfall. Sounds so pretty at night when your in tent. Nicely kept grounds and good pool with slide for children. Cute restaurant for food in resort. The bathrooms and showers were not coin inserted which is a plus and they were nice and powerful and hot.

We recently stayed for a weekend at the Haruru Falls Resort. It was fantastic ! We were blessed with beautiful weather, took a great dinner cruise up the river, and over all had a very good weekend. Our accommodation was a luxury apartment, beautifully decorated. The staff were helpful and friendly. I would have no hesitation in staying again - and in fact hope to stay for an extended weekend in November.

Room Tip: Go for the luxury apartments. They're beautiful !

We loved our 2 night tent stay here. Gorgeous view of the Falls from our campsite, and the swimming pool is just what you need in summer!
Lots of showers and toilets so there's never a wait.

Excellent accommodation! Only 10 minutes from Paihia, and not far to Kerikeri either.

I have recently had the opportunity to stay at the Haruru Falls Resort on 3 separate occasions over the past month to attend conferences/training sessions. Jan, the hostess, is welcoming and friendly, as are all the front line staff. I enjoyed a room with water views of the falls - very comfortable - dining in, and the well maintained grounds and swimming pool. Great value for money!

The conference facilities are modern and clean, and have everything you need for presentations. The views of the falls and of the river provided are stunning.

I will be happy to stay here again, and recommend this establishment for motel guests and camper-van tourists alike.

Judith

Room Tip: Ask about the rooms closest to the Falls; going to sleep listening to the water is amazing!

Another wonderful 2 weeks camping. A truly relaxing spot and one you can never tire of. Many improvements have been made including a kitchen and laundry upgrade. Lots of time spent relaxing around the huge pool and the well maintained grounds.
This place really has it all:
- Motel units and cabins of various sizes to accommodate all including large families, like ours.
- Lovely camping area with a mix of powered and unpowered sites.
- Awesome pool, BBQ and kids play area.
- Restaurant and bar
- Boat ramp and jetty (great for the kids to fish from)
- Less than 5 min drive to heart of Pahia.
- Obliging staff.
and of course the location on Waitangi river, looking directly at the magnificent Haruru Falls, is just simply unbeatable.
Looking forward to another brilliant holiday next year as well as the odd weekend visit.

We were fortunate enough to get a water-side pich for our camper-van, so we had an uninterupted view of the Haruru Falls. Fabulous location. Good kitchen, showers/toilet block. Excellent pool. Some shade for the van and picnic tables provided too. Good on-site bar and restaurant.

Room Tip: try and get near to the water

We stayed here one night in our campervan Feb 2013 - we were able to park right on the water's edge with a view across to the falls and down river in the other direction ... this is a fabulous location - really the most beautiful campsite we stayed in throughout our trip to North Island. (Also benefits from friendly manager, large swimming pool, licensed restaurant and it was in the lower price range which we paid for powered sites during our trip).

Room Tip: NB there are several motels and campgrounds around here - drive right down to the last campsite at t...
