We stayed three nights in our motor home in August and we had a magic time. Our camping site backed onto the lagoon with the falls as our vista. We found it to be a "slice of heaven". The owner(hostess) made us feel very welcome and she sat with us in the lounge and we shared stories over a glass of wine in the evenings. The lagoon had so many faces, from misty mornings to picturesque sunsets, with an abundance of bird life. We drifted to sleep every night with the gentle flow of the falls. This was one of the highlights of our New Zealand holiday and we highly recommend staying here. Thank you to our host, from Barbara and Graham Miller, Queensland, Australia

We recently booked out the entire resort for a fishing competition. Paihia turned on spectacular weather and the Resort was like our own little piece of paradise. Beautiful modern and clean rooms (love the decor), the pool area and BBQ area were popular and a great gathering spot. The restaurant put on a delicious three course buffet dinner for us, and we just couldn't fault the entire weekend. Thanks so much Jan, Heather and staff for making our stay so enjoyable and memorable. There were 70 + happy people who had a brilliant weekend. Just can't thank you enough.

Room Tip: All rooms are like new. Beautiful decor. We have stayed in the apartments on our last two visits...

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.
