“Amazing stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

We had an awesome stay at this fantastic resort facing the falls in a spacious varanda of the apartment. Great place to stay in Paihia. It is near to the city in a very calm and relaxing area. The resort is facing the falls that form a beautiful lake where you can swin.

Our family has stayed here on several occasions over the last 20 years. It used to be great but now its shabby at best. The room showers are more than a joke and some rooms simply dont work. Reception is often not manned and the owners dog is let lose to go anywhere it likes. A dog constantly in the reception/restaurant area and running in and out of any open rooms is unacceptable. The room TVs are a bigger disappointment. No Sky and in our rooms no reception on any of the three channels available :( The rooms are nowhere near as clean as they used to be and the overall attention to detail has dropped way way below to what it was a few years ago. Our beds were made up of the cheapest of mattresses and the pillows likewise from the warehouse.

We are not happy with your responce regarding the rooms, We would like to know your surname to send you a personal message through our reservation ststem, as we have no record of a family group staying in August. If you was a retuning guess you would have know we have no Sky channels in the rooms our water pressure is low as we are on natural spring water. The beds are SLEEPYHEAD AND PILLOW not purchased from the warehouse We have been doggy friendly for the last 3years this allows our guess to bring there pet which they treat as thier own child. The rooms are cleaned to qualmaking standard we like to continue to receive 4 stars plus this year. Please email us your email address to discuss further.

So many visits - so many friends !! We have been visiting this resort for nines years now and continue to build friendships with other regular visitors... Fishing, BBQing, swimming, eating and drinking live music and socializing its got the lot. Stunning grounds for events and celebrations - i enjoyed my 40th surprise Birthday Party here and the Falls top it all off as a main feature in this natural and beautiful environment.

We first discovered the secret of Haruru Falls Resort before Christmas last year. A magical spot, with the view of the lagoon and sound of the Falls as a relaxing backdrop. There is so much to rave about here. Jan, Heather and the staff made us feel at home straight away. Nothing too much trouble. We enjoyed the facilities, the pool, bbq, the restaurant and bar. Plenty to do for children, kayaks, giant chess, volleyball, etc.

The Falls are only a 10 minute walk from the Resort, and a bonus is that the Resort is only 5 minutes drive from Pahia, shops and beaches, and a short ferry ride to Russell.

A wonderful discovery for us, try it for yourself!!

and friendly staff

After reading lots of review and the info the web I wnet ahead and booked through a grab one deal.
The falls are a natural wonder, grounds of the resort are well kept. The room was very basic not even a box of tissues. Our breakfast was included in the deal and we were very surprised to be handed it in a box at check in. After our drive up there we decidied to have a bit of a lie down before heading out for dinner, we were some what intrupted by the resident dog who is very cute scratching on the unit door and barking wanting to come in.
If you are looking for clean and tidy no frills then this is the place for you. Would be great place for family get away.
