We booked our stay about 12 months before our arrival and also payed the deposit. On booking the stay we wanted to be with the other members of the family and also checked the dates of the other family groups. So about a few days before we left to drive there I called to find out which place we were...

Dear Robert, Thank you for your feedback. I can see that you made your booking for January 2017, we do apologize that these were the wrong dates and unfortunately with us being fully booked we were unable to move the dates to December 2016, We did ring every other Hotel and Motel in Napier, but unfortunately nothing was available.

The kids play facilities were excellent.. The pool was good with water at a reasonable temperature.. however the kitchens and the bathrooms where dirty.. Location wise, it's not too far away from the town center.. Being a 10 minute drive to downtown Napier..

Have enjoyed staying in villas so decided to camp in our caravan for 10 days. Kids loved the pool & play amenities, central location, good sized powered site but appalling toilets & showers. Only cleaned once daily - totally inadequate for a holiday park of this size at near/full peak season capacity. Even when reported toilet paper & empty soap...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback.

Stayed 1 night in a 2 bedroom villa. The villa was clean, but somewhat basic. The beds were comfortable and the lounge room very spacious and comfortable. Good kitchen facilities.

We stayed 3 nights in a 2 bedroom villa which had all that you needed. It's clean and functional. The place itself is packed and getting a little tired especially the motel units. (although it does have a new reception block). The wifi didn't work and the pool is only 1 m deep. This is great for families with younger...

Hi Sarah, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you were a little disappointed with our facilities. We are always fully booked at this time of year, if it is too busy for you it may pay to try us in the quiet season, between April and November.

A rival to the Top 10 resorts- warm pools, go carts, jumping pillow, playground, sky TV, gym- it has it all! Camping sites are packed in - if you don't like hearing the guy in the tents next door snoring, then this isn't for you! We camped near the pool on a non-powered site. We used the toilets and showers...

Dear Guest. Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you feel that you will not be returning. At this time of year we do have an average of 800 people in our resort and so it can be very busy and noisy. The toilets do get cleaned more than once a day but due to the...

We stayed for 2 nights. Booked a 2 BR cabin which was comfortable and clean. Had a great kitchen, fairly well stocked with gas stove and full oven. Location is okay for driving but quite a far walk (25 mins) to downtown. It is really meant for campers and the place was full of families with kids. Our teens enjoyed...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback.

This was an excellent place to stay with the family. We stayed in one of the villa rooms, which is basically like a two bedroom apartment. Our room was just across from a great playground which included a jumping pillow and two trampolines as well as climbing equipment. There were go carts for hire, and it was safe for children...

The room felt a bit outdated but had everything we needed. We had a problem with the wifi though. I followed the instructions they gave and managed to connect but after around 15 minutes it stopped working and I couldn't re-connect. We were only staying one night but it was still inconvenient not being able to access the internet.
