I've been coming to Hahei since my parents brought me as a baby. Over the years we have tried many different places around the country but now we just come back to Hahei every year. It's got everything! Great facilities, on the beach (which is one of the most stunning beaches in the world and kid friendly), walks, shops (just don't go near the takeaway bar) and restaurants and cafés. Hahei is NZ's premium family holiday destination, just don't tell anyone!

Stayed: January 2014, traveled with family

Hahei is no longer a secret although has managed to keep its quaint village charm. We enjoy welcoming generations of families back to the resort year after year. Kids, parents, and grandparents alike make friends throughout the camp and during lazy days at the beach. See you again and for many years to come. Thank you.

We rented a kitchen cabin for 5 nights, really enjoyed our stay, the facilities at the resort are fantastic, clean, plenty of staff to help you if you need it. The beach is beautiful and only a minute or two walk away.

We stayed here for the first time over the January holidays, were down in F block loved the shade, but a huge walk to the toilets which were very dirty over our time there, toilet paper everywhere, locks falling off, a thick layer of dust in both toilets and showers. No freezers, and they charge you too store in a freezer which when you are paying high rates wasnt appreciated. Security is non existent, we never saw anyone in F block the whole time were were there.

We do appreciate any feedback, and thank you for taking the time to respond. Freezer space is difficult to manage during Peak Season. Guests can relax knowing that their frozen goods are secure. There is a freezer available for slicker pads. Bathrooms are checked regularly during peak season. We have noted all ablutions comments for discussion, and look to make positive changes for next Summer.

Our family has been camping with friends in E block for 5+ years now and will continue to do so. We love the fact that our families get the same sites each year allowing us to all make some firm friendships with the other families around us - we all look out for one another....especially when the weather isn't ideal! While the fees are not cheap they are probably comparable with other camp- grounds that have such an amazing location. I'm pleased to read on here that more ablutions blocks are being planned and while the facilities are reportedly checked frequently I wish they would clean the walls when required - the same yucky marks were there for 2 weeks in more than one or two cubicals! Waiting for showers need not be a problem...if there is a queue we went back and had a glass of wine instead....No queues later in the evening! But why are the unisex showers almost always only luke warm??? Thanks for another great summer holiday guys!

What a great Summer we've had! We appreciate your response. Cleaning appears to be our main complaint and is definitely being reviewed. We like your suggestion regarding showering outside of our busiest time ( 6-7pm ) where the lines are shorter, and the showers are hotter. See you next Summer.

This is a great camping ground that meets all our requirements - on a beach, near fun family attractions (Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach), plenty of trees to climb, relaxed atmosphere, etc.

We love it and will be back!

We're excited about the future of the resort. The proximity to Cathedral Cove is unbeatable, and with beautiful Hahei Beach right on our doorstep it's hard not to be relaxed and enjoy your surroundings. Thank you for your comments.

Just returned from our 4th visit to Hahei Holiday Resort and have to say it was our best. Over a period of 8 nights, peak season, not once did we ever have queue for facilities or get a feeling of being overcrowded.Tent sites are generous at 8m x 8m and location within a minute's walk to the beach, peerless. Great location for a kiwi family camping holiday - we've many wonderful memories and look forward to lots more in the years to come.

Nice! Thank you. The team work hard to create an enjoyable family atmosphere. It helps to have such a stunning beach just a stone throws away. Sites are roughly 8 X 8 square metres with ample room to fit your belongings. During peak season we have limited storage available for those who over-pack. The team look forward to welcoming you back next Summer.

We stayed in the new Bungalow accommodation in this resort. It is luxury at a campsite. The facilities are brand new, modern, clean and the building has been designed to cater for families who are only metres from the beach . There are outside taps to wash down the sandy bodies, a huge shower and bathroom, laundry facilities, a great kitchen....plus much more. The place was well serviced and the staff were friendly, informative and had a good sense of humour. The only negative...slow internet service...but as we were there to get away from work, we didn't mind.

Thank you! The bungalows are new this summer, and It's great to hear such comments. Feedback has been incredibly positive. The team enjoy helping guests, and make every effort to make your stay enjoyable. The internet in Hahei is much slower than the city, especially with the Summer population – we're glad this gave you the chance to get away from work!
