Loved the place! Kids are already hoping to go back. So nice and relaxing in the pools. We enjoyed spending time in what is I believe the older pool. Only on one occasion we were in there with others as everyone else was enjoying the new pool. It was really nice to have the different temperatures of pool. As someone...

We stayed here with friends over labour weekend and really enjoyed ourselves. There is lots for the kids to do and the pool is amazing. We thought the standard cabin was on the pricey side before we got there but we had hours of entertainment in the pool. The cabins were very clean and modern as were the shared kitchen,...

Cons: We stayed with friends to experience the new pools. The pools are really nice however we were very disappointed by the loud giant TV blaring over them. We go away with the kids to get away from TV and they all (not just ours) sat in the pool staring at it. It was going all day and evening with...

Good cabins and play areas for children. BUT be careful in the pool... Parents must accompany children because there is a bar in the pool area the real danger is the different levels of pool depth.No life guard so you must watch your children ALL the time as it is deep in places not easily seen. Food good and prices...

We arrived at the Top 10 and were greeted by friendly staff. We were looking forward to enjoying their pool facilities. We were charged full price which was $70 for 2 adults and 2 children even though the main pool was closed. Compared to other Top 10s this charge was excessive.

After booking online a $400 stay, we were contacted the day of our visit to be told the pool would not be in use. They knew weeks in advance the pool would be under maintenance but never contacted us. We traveled on my birthday especially to stay here for its pool and lets be honest that's why people go there....

Just back from Taupo after taking a group of boys to a soccer tournament. All the boys stayed in 3 adjoining cabins and 6 or 7 parents of the boys also booked cabins on site.
