After booking what I thought was a budget caravan park for a 1 night stay before we went on to Napier - wow what a shock! An absolute gem of a place & if I had done my homework a little better I would have booked my three day visit there instead of Rotorua. The staff were absolutely fabulous -...

We stayed in a 2 bedroom chalet and were impressed by how spacious, modern and clean the unit was presented. Staff kept it neat and tidy throughout our stay and the rooms were spacious with comfy beds and tasteful furnishings. Our stay was definitely comfortable and we were very pleased we selected DeBretts.

We took our two Kiwi grandchildren to deBretts where we stayed for a couple of nights. We stayed in a two bedroom chalet with a bathroom, lounge and kitchen. It had everything we needed for our short stay and it was so handy for the hot pools and children's play area. We hardly saw our two grand-daughters - they were...

We stayed here for a weekend with a few families and couples. We were competing in the Great Lake Relay. All our accomodation was really good. We had people in villas, studios and cabins, all ensuite. They were clean spacious and the staff were friendly and helpful. Most of the accomodation has views of the lake. The spa and pools...

I loved my stay at DeBretts with me and my friends going there to have fun and just hang out, it ended up being better than what we expected it to be. You will also get WiFi to use around the resort and the pool was just amazing.

We stayed at The De Bretts Holiday Camp site, we did our honeymoon in a camper-van. We chose this because we wanted inexpensive accommodation so we could spend our money towards experiences. The De Bretts site is amazing, during Feb when all the holiday makers have gone, and you are cruising with only senior holiday makers, no time pressure and...

We stay one night in our caravan on our way to Napier. Check in was very professional, we were directed to our site and given very clear instructions re pools etc. Very clean and new facilities. Piped music a wee bit too loud in the bathrooms. Only negative but we sure will be back. Thank you.

These hot mineral pools are devine. The setting is very pretty at night and the heated floors in n the changing rooms are fabulous. Continuous water in the showers, no pushing buttons is great. Only issue the price at $22 per adult we all thought was a bit much.
