“Lovely Campground!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful campground on our very last night in beautiful NZ before returning back to the States. We were most impressed with the warm welcome we received from the staff and very happy and pleased to enjoy a gorgeous campsite, overlooking the beautiful beach and ocean. We were thrilled to be able to enjoy the Cathedral Cove track from our very own campsite. Even though the campground was busy, we found the kitchen and bathroom nice and clean (and the Kiwis so friendly!). We even came across someone baking a chocolate cake in the kitchen (while camping, no less!). This is THE place to stay in the Coromandel Peninsula area!! We will definitely be returning the next time we visit.

What a shame you only had one night with us! Not nearly enough time to see and enjoy our beautiful part of the country but thankfully long enough to make the right impression. It is always our pleasure to welcome travellers and lovely to hear that you want to come back again. Thank you for your words of support. Look forward to seeing you another time.

We travelled to Hahei on our recent trip around NZ in a campervan.
We got a very good site overlooking the sea and 'out' of the main camping area. This was the most expensive campsite we stayed at during our trip.
Hahei is a very small town/village and Hahei Holidays is about the only place to stay. Nearby is the Hot water beach which also has a holiday camp. This beach is an amuzing place to visit to experience the natural thermal pools in the sand, there are also cafes which Hahei does not have.
Stock up on food and drinks before hitting town as the general store is very expensive and limited, the next major town is at least 30 minutes away.
Overall the park is ok, it is very big and has a lot of long term campers. Ammenities are clean but basic.

Room Tip: Stock up on food, there is limited places to eat out or shop economically.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. The sea view camper van sites are our premium sites and have a view second to none. It is a shame that you did not get to experience the cafe and restaurant as well as a pizza parlour and fish and chip store in the village. We are fabulously situated to enable guests to experience a wide variety of natural wonders and amazing activities all within a 30 minute radius.

We have stayed at this campsite a few times over the last couple of years and we come back because despite being expensive the location is incredible. Hahei is a beautiful beach and the campsite is right on the beach. Over the peak Christmas and New Year period the camp is extremely busy and you will wait for everything - showers, cooking etc. Outside of these times, the facilities are fine. Adding some showers (particularly female ones!) wouldn't go amiss but otherwise the camp has been slowly improving and it is noticeable that feedback is being considered. We have never had an issue with booking and have been accommodated near friends and family - but this is partly because we always choose the cheaper pitches.

Room Tip: If you are tenting - choose the lots further back as they are cheaper, quieter and still really clos...

WE SAY... Thank you for your support and great tip! Sites are cheaper in F and G block throughout the peak season, and a little quieter. Rigorous over hauling in the booking systems has meant that this year we have met over 90% of customer requests. We are aware that the facilities are stretched to the max over the ten day period from Christmas. Our Tip: February March is a stunning time to visit Hahei Holidays.

Great stay at Hahei once again. Lovely big camp sites right near the sea. How wonderful to wander over the sand dunes onto the beach. Friendly staff and the facilities were always clean. Thanks, we'll be back again!

Thank you so much – it is always a pleasure to have you stay! There is nothing quite like collecting bunny tails off the sand dunes on your way back from a morning swim :). Autumn, Winter and Spring are beautiful also if you are able to take time out of a busy schedule.

Great location but terrible facilities. There were nowhere near enough toilets and showers for the number of people staying on the campsite. There were constant queues for everything. It would seem that the owners rely on the fabulous location to pull customers in. They really ought to look at investing some of the profit they must make from the high prices they charge....more toilets and showers needed..and they need to be cleaned more often and more thoroughly.

Hi there – thank your for your comments. Many of the guests over this time book from year to year, and generation to generation, it is a popular destination and time of year. Facilities are pushed to the max for the 10 day period from Christmas Day through to the 7th or 8th of January. It is the busiest time in almost every coastal village or settlement, where you will queue for toilets showers supermarkets restaurants takeaways and ice creams. It is unfortunate that you are not able to come and enjoy the camping experience at a less busy time. We believe our team of cleaners, maintenance, security, office and admin staff are far from lazy, they are a team who work very hard all year to ensure that it is a pleasant experience for all who stay – we are sorry you did not enjoy your time in Hahei.

We planned our trip for New Years earlier in the year and during that time people had pulled out and dates were changed. We changed our reservation twice and Hahei holiday resort were more than happy to rearrange our booking with complete ease! We loved the environment and the facilitates were great plus direct access to Hahei beach.
Staff was friendly and we were happy with the price too. We loved our time there and will definitely look to book again :)

We stayed here very recently. Wendy at the reception was awesome - very accommodating and helpful even when we arrived around 9 pm. The backpackers room where we stayed was also good. The toilets & showers were clean. The location is excellent too considering it is very near Hahei Beach, Cathedral Cove and just a short drive to Hot Water Beach. There were many people staying here during summer which made the place seem festive. We would definitely go back...
