"The campground is just at the skirt of the town center; it's only a 5-minute drive to everything - town center, supermarket, & beaches. The cottage we stayed in was comfortable but a bit "old." I could enjoy both sunrise and sunset right there. "

"We stayed here two nights. Our chalet was clean and spacious with two bedrooms, a sofa bed, a kitchenette, toilet and shower/bathroom. The chalet was privately owned rather than owned by the holiday park and this meant that the owners were responsible for maintenance and furnishings. As a result some aspects of our chalet were in need of attention and the sofa bed was almost impossible to sit on as it was so worn out as to be uncomfortable. A leak in the shower meant that the floor covering was breaking up and the wall and floor was mouldy. All these things were out of the control of the owners of the holiday park however. We do feel however that the time is fast approaching where the park owners need to consider whether they can continue to let this chalet out on the owners behalf as in doing so it may reflect negatively on the reputation of the holiday park as well as that of the owners of the chalet. Other points to note are that the chalet was unserviced and that reception closed at 18.00hrs,which may be a little early for some people. Comprehensive information on local attractions, restaurants etc was in a folder provided by the park owners. Our experience with this particular chalet would not prevent us staying at the holiday park in the future."

"Bonus - we were upgraded! But I don't think the rooms are great value to money. We were upgraded to a $250/night room and while there was nothing wrong with it (it was clean, neat and comfortable) I don't think it was worth $250 a night mid week when it wasn't school holidays. That aside staff were super friendly and Whitianga is amazingly beautiful."

Giorgio introduced us to the area, made recommendations for the best beaches to visit and even booked Christmas dinner for us. Actually, we could just as easily just have sat looking at that view the whole time."
