Stayed here for 3 nights. Staff very friendly. I felt the camp was a little run down and tired. We stayed in a 2 bedroom flat thing. It was fine, had the essentials, shower was terrible though. no pressure. The hot pools weren't hot enough and needed more regular cleaning. good value for money though if you're just looking for...

Thank you for your response and we appreciate the feedback - our Holiday Park is under extensive renovations and we are trying hard to upgrade a number of our units before our summer period arrives. Due to the large amounts of rain we have endured recently it is sometimes difficult to keep our natural thermal pools heated at a constant...

This could have been okay, with wonderful and helpful check in staff and an ideal location within proximity of many of Rotarua's finest offerings. Unfortunately, the park is pretty tired and in need of a really good revamp. Additionally, while there was access to a few onsite thermal pools to while away niggles, these were constantly dominated by noisy rude...

We stayed in one of their little cabins. they are like static caravans. Clean and tidy, but terrible mattresses. Our cabin came with one double and 3 single bunk beds. I had to escape from the double to a single, as I kept rolling off the bed (that's how bad the mattress was lol). The big bathroom facility is clean...

This is exactly what you imagine when you think 'holiday park'. We absolutely love it here and have been more than 5 times on our trips to Rotorua. It can get a little loud in the mornings, but it is a holiday park so you should expect this. The biggest critique I have is of the curtains in the cabins....

Stayed in one of the standard rooms (log cabin). Only things in the cabin are beds, stools and a table. Would have been more comfortable with chairs instead of stools, but we only really slept there anyway and the beds were very comfortable. Free hot pools were good and it's just round the corner from the Forrest for Mountain biking...

This is a nice clean holiday park, suitable for motorhomes and large caravans. Amenities are a bit dated, but in good order. There are some thermal pools available, but again older. Close to attractions.

A lovely, quiet place, but if you want some comfort, this isn't for you. Located by the highway, but very peaceful.
