We were a very large group travelling to and staying at the Papamoa Beach Resort for a family wedding. The wedding was also held at the Papamoa Beach Resort. We were lucky with the weather, but we would not recommend the staff who were the wedding planning staff. The wedding would have gone more smoothly with less stress if the...

I'm reluctant to say how nice this place is for fear of not being able to book in! It is a very popular camp ground and we hadnt been for many years so was pleased to see it has improved greatly. The ablution block is always kept very clean and there are lots of places to dump rubbish. My only...

Was looking forward to staying but we decided to cancel out trip at 6.21pm the day before because the region was declared a state of emergency - it was advised that the weather the area was to receive would be the worst seen for 60 years. We thought in cancelling was the sensible thing to do and was 24 hours...

What a pleasure this place is to stay, clean ,modern and all we needed. Great place to eat next door, Will defiantly stay again. We stayed with friends in a 2 room villa. One room had a queen bed and the other bunks and a single but we didn't mind it was only for one night.

We stayed in one of the baches(aka Holiday Homes). It was a really simple, but cool set-up with plenty of room for 4 adults and 3 kids. The bouncy pillows and playground were a big hit with the kids as well as the bikes. The only criticisms were that one of our blankets had a gross food stain on it(I...

Papamoa Beach Resort is an awesome place to stay. It's less busy than places closer to the Mount. Beach is beautiful with less people than Mount Maunganui. The resort is only 10-15 minute drive to the Mount for people who want t do the hike, which is very beautiful. Accommodations are amazing. Beds are so comfortable. Bathrooms are modern. We...

What an amazing place for a family to stay! This resort is modern and incredibly clean and best of all is located right on the beach. Perfect for an evening stroll after dinner. The bathroom facilities are very clean and modern

After reading other reviews I knew we had to splash out for the beachfront villa & I wasn't disappointed. A few steps off the deck & we were on sand! Lovely layout with the king bed in the lounge & single beds in a separate room meant a late night drink on the deck taking in the amazing views was...

The bach's themselves where fantastic, great lounge area, kitchen, two showers & toilets which was brilliant with 10 people getting ready, the kids had a ball in the play area across the way, comfy beds, it was all great and I would recommend them however...
