Location was walking distance to the shops. The front cabins had beautiful views of the surfers, every day in your backyard. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very clean rooms and a well organised property. We will be coming back to stay again.

The Papamoa Beach Resort was recommended to us as a good option due to its locality. It appeared a bit expensive for a cabin in a motor camp - how wrong we were! Excellent çabin done in a Lockwood style - clean, comfortable bed, great facilities. The Beach Resort was well laid out, great sea views from our front door...

The first time we had stayed in a cabin on this type of site, but it was very comfortable, and very reasonably priced. The cabin was spacious, and room for four more guests if necessary, in a separate room with two sets of bunk beds. The double bed with ocean view was very comfortable.There was comfortable lounge seating in the...

Travelling with a sports team & finding accommodation for all is difficult but the beautiful, sleeps 10 new baches here were perfect. Rooms were light, airy, very clean and had all the things you needed for a weekend stay. The big bonus was two showers and 2 toilets. I would highly recommend staying here if you have a large group.

Looking forward to going back again in the near future, this Resort has clean...

Equipped with double bed and a bunk bed, small table with seats, heater, small fridge. Toilets closest to the cabin were dated...

This is a lovely clean very appealing camp. It must be beautiful in the summer. The set up for the kitches and ablutions is top rate. The price of $50 a night for 2 for a powered campervan site is on the higher end but really is a lovely spot. Showers were free for 7 minutes. Ask for a site...

We are a family of 6 and often struggle to find somewhere big enough enough for us all to stay in comfortably. We have stayed here in the past before we were a family of 6 and loved it so decided to try again. We were stoked to find that there was new 3 bedroom baches available at a resonable...
