Well, we stayed here second time and this time our stay wasn't very pleasant. The pluses are: the hosts are very friendly and nice, so service is, the rooms are quite clean and have everything to stay for a couple of nights, it sits right on the water edge and some rooms have nice view from the balcony.
The bad things are: beds are uncomfortable, it is unbelievably noisy (kids are screaming in the pool area, jumping and bumping in the water, people laughing etc) even if you close all the windows. Pool is open from 8am, but both days there were people from 6.30-7am and we couldn't sleep even wearing ear plugs. Our friends couldn't sleep either while staying a room on the second floor. One morning there were people drinking and laughing around the pool from 6.30am... Also one of our neighbors was a smoker, he smoked outside in the pool area and all the smoke was in our room - totally disgusting!
We won't recommend this place to any of our friends and we definitely will look for a more quiet place for our next stay in Taupo.
