My parent's stayed at this holiday park last week, with my niece and nephew. They asked me to write a review as they are very concerned about the state of the park, and they really don't want visitors to our lovely country to go there as it is such a discrace.
Dad's comments:'Toilet and kitchen facilities are well past their use by date, there was big pile of rubbish at the beach end of the park, it looked like rubbish hadn't been collected for weeks. The permanent resident's accomodation is a real eye sore, and the permanent residents themselves are a bit rough.This is a nice spot that we have enjoyed taking our grandchildren to for a number of years, but we won't be going back .Waiwera Holiday Park is an iconic place and should be for domestic and overseas visitors, I was embarrassed to see that it had become so run down and suggest that tourists don't go there'.
Mum's comments: 'The location is really good and we always enjoy taking our grandchildren to the hot pools and mini golf nearby. We always eat dinner at the local pub, wher the staff are excellent and the food is good (saves having to go into the camp kitchen). We noticed last year that the camp was getting a bit run down, but this year it is looking REALLY run down and shabby. Some of the people staying there were a bit rough, I couldn't say whether or not they were permanent residents, but they were very drunk and stumbling around. I didn't want to leave the children alone or let them go to the toilet block by themselves as it just didn't feel safe, which is a bit sad really'
