We were amazed when we booked campsites there was availability 2 weeks out from our trip. It was a 2 night stay. We were allocated 4 powered camp sites for 10 Adults and 4 Children. Prime location in front of the children's play area, swimming pools, dining room, kitchen and of course the shower/ toilet block. The service when we arrived was very friendly and accommodating. The area was kept clean at all times and the staff very friendly. Information posted on the front reception window on tide movements and weather reports were very helpful. They also had spades to hire when you went to check out hot water beach,a ice machine maker and a filtered water machine. The only query I had was the power phase on our site as we only had the normal 3 pin phase that couldn't plug into there power boxes All in all we came away from the resort very happy and ready to book again. Our family has no hesitation telling others about our wonderful stay. Thank you Cooks Beach Resort Management and Staff. Regards Paula Adams and Family

We just spent three days at the Cooks Beach Resort and it was fantastic. The place has had an extreme makeover since the last time I was there and it is just awesome now. The facilities and amenities are top class. The resort is cleaned non stop and has everything you would want to make you trip enjoyable and relaxing. The kitchen/restrooms/showers are nothing short of immaculate.
The staff were helpful and very friendly. The pools are awesome. Nothing negative at all to say of this place and would recommend it to anyone.

We stayed in one of the studio units immaculately clean with a fully fucntioning kitchen, the welcome was good and we got a complimentary carton of milk nice touch!
Perfectly placed to get to Whitianga on the Ferry with great facilities really enjoyed the Fush & Chups from the Frying Scotsman, whilst drinking Red Wine and watching the All Blacks Game.
Read some earlier reviews it seems they have upgraded the TV's Freeview was a bonus!
Awesome.
Thanks.

The Scallop Festival is selling tickets NOW for this tasty annual event. Don't miss out - this year is promising to be great as the festival is celebrating it's tenth birthday. Book your accommodation now for September 6th 2014, the ferry crossing along the road is only $5 return into Whitianga and a great option to be at the festival without driving.

I would not stay at this motor camp again.The managers left a key out for us and it was the key to someone elses unit, so after a long trip I had to track someone down to give us the right key. I wanted Wifi but it did not connect to the chalet we were in so couldnt get it unless I went to the lounge of the camp (I had a chalet, I wanted to use it in there). The tiolet was not cleaned properly and to top it of there was a birds nest on the pillow of the bed. The chalet had spiderwebs right through it. It was not my idea of clean...

I enjoyed the pool and great house a lot. Even when coming with a camper-van you get a superb kitchen, relax room, laundry rooms and all the rest you need. Can highly recommend the resort. BYO or rent a house, either way a pleasure.

Room Tip: Chalets are fantastic. Ditch the kids in one room, enjoy the other AND have a living room, too. They...

We stayed in a 2 bedroom chalet. What a comfortable place and a superb location. Great facilities including pool, TV in the chalet and even ESPN and Sky in the lounge. Very hospitably run. We got good advise about the best beaches and fishing trips.Inexpensive.Pam and I would love to go back but regrettably we're from the UK. Lucky Kiwis.
