          The Puka Park resort in Pauanui is a great concept, but very poorly executed. Our chalet was comfortable, but the lack of air-conditioning meant that we had to keep the slatted windows and sliding-glass door open for ventilation. There were no screens on the windows...More

          In Pauanui on the Coromandel there is simply no alternative to Puka Park within an hour drive. The village is almost like a suburb of Auckland where wealthy Kiwis park their plane or boat next to their holiday homes. Puka Park, therefore, has a sort...More
