Stayed recently for two nights of a long weekend with a group of three families. Our two bedroom unit was spacious, clean and comfortable, with electric blankets to keep you cosy on a cold winters night. The heated pool and spa, giant outdoor checkers and bouncy pillow were a huge hit with the kids, who we barely saw the entire time, the grounds were beautifully maintained and tidy, as were all communal areas.. The only downside for us would have been the two night minimum (understandable I guess on a long weekend) but this prevented two other families staying there. They didn't seem to be completely full so I wonder whether there would have been space for them to have stayed after all?

Thanks for the review. Sadly we do enforce a two night minimum especially over long weekends and unfortunately that means some people will miss out. We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to welcome you back again soon.

We were super impressed with Taupo Top 10. We meet up with three other familes and had children from 8-13. Loads to do for the children - best thing being the very clean and wonderfully warm swimming pool and spa which meant in June the boys spent a lot of the weekend swimming. Also the playground, tennis courts, giant chess and checker set plus games room meant the children had lots to do. The whole place is very clean, modern and well maintained and staff were great too. Thank you.

Room Tip: Children spend a lot of time on the bouncy cushion and playground near pool so handy to have a room close to there

Had an amazing weekend with 3 families! Pool was incredible, could have stayed there all weekend!! Being in the middle of winter, I went expecting to freeze for the entire time but everywhere we went in the park was heated and cosy. The kitchen provided a great place for the families to cook together although could have done with more lounge space for us to all hang out together. Needed to stay for another week to enjoy all that the park offered! Will definitely be back!

We have just arrived home from this resort. We have stayed here on several occasions over the years and it seems to get better and better every time we return. This time we stayed in a brand new self-contained unit 44. It was absolutely perfect! This room has a queen bed in the kitchen area and 4 sets of bunks in a separate room which has new carpet and is really cosy, there is a heat pump in both rooms and we didn't need to use them at all as the room was warm enough without them, an awesome kitchen with everything you need (maybe it's own oven would make this the perfect kitchen) and a huge bathroom with a roomy shower, hair dryer, soap and shampoo. All the beds are made up and towels are provided in the cost so you only need to bring swimming towels. The resort is well looked after and clean which is the first thing I always look for! The pool, spa, games room, t.v room, playground, jumping pillow and funzone kept the kids occupied for the whole 3 day long weekend. When you compare all the facilities and the price you pay this is the place to stay especially if you have children they love it! You will always find a cheaper motel but...will it provide you with everything you get here at this resort? I would highly recommend this resort to anyone wanting a nice clean relaxing stay in taupo away from the hussle and bussle of town. We will be back very soon.

Life on the road in a motorhome can be a real joy but the camping grounds in New Zealand are not cheap. Every now and then a sensibly priced, well located camping ground turns up. This is NOT one of them. The grounds are placed at least 2.5 kms from the town centre, so don't expect to enjoy the local night life. It is near a busy road, the trees are still immature and the grounds look barren. All the motor homes were shoved into the same small bay that night. Is this necessary in off season? The daily cost of $44.00 NZ pays for the jumping castle and silly giant chess pieces. This stuff really annoys me. It might be a good distraction for kids, but for the average traveller, these 'attractions' just add to the overnight cost. The bathrooms were heated, a good point, but were quite small. As it is almost impossible to change back into clothes in these small cubicles, a large outsie area with a bench seat is a good feature. This place did not provide any area post cubicle at ll. It was clean.

Thanks for taking your time with your review Morgana. We try to ensure that we cater for as many people who come through our gate as possible and feel that our Jumping Pillow, Tennis Courts, Swimming Pool and even the Giant Chess add value to a stay with us. It is unfortunate that you did not enjoy these added facilities it's good to see that you found everything spotlessly clean.
