“Another great stay”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

You can't go wrong with this place if you have kids, came down with my 5 year old ( who couldn't get him of the Bouncy pillow) and had a great time with a great price in a studio motel unit.
My only gripe was the restaurant meals are more about quantity than quality but they did return my child's toy that was left in the restaurant overnight so that was much appreciated!

Stayed July 2014, travelled with family

Hi,

Thank you for taking the time to submit your review.

We are delighted that you and your child had a great stay, we have replaced the jumping pillow with a new jumping pillow which has alot more bounce on it and the kids do love it.

I am sorry to hear about your gripe on the restaurant but i will certainly pass your comments on to them as all feedback is greatly appreciated.

We look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

We have been here for 8 years in a row at Christmas.
Stayed in tents and other times in kitchen cabins.
On all our stays we have had so much fun, its like a friendly community with friendly staff who always go beyond there dutys to have a laugh with you and make sure your having a fab time.
All the kids get together and hang out and its safe with everyone watching out for everyone.
We loved the night security to felt safe and secure.
The free eco friendly rubbish bays are a great idea and all the rooms/tv rooms/ playground is FANTASTIC.
We are always happy to return to enjoy Christmas and see friendly familiar faces.

Room Tip: every where is a good area so have fun.

Don't hunt around for closer to town if looking for a park to stay in, this is it. Clean, friendly, spacious, lots of facilities and a very short drive to town. The staff are very helpful and are there 24/7 !!! The park caters for ALL types of accommodation.

Stayed overnight hiring two rooms for family and found the rooms clean, warm and really well designed. The stand out was the help from Janet and her staff. Will definitely return when in the region next year

We stayed here Queens Birthday weekend in our caravan, we've stayed previously in cabins & tents. Still Love this place, you can be assured of everything being clean every visit with lots for the kids to do. I was surprised how quiet the park was on this weekend, only 4 caravans so made for a peaceful weekend, kids loved scootering around & the park & pillow as always. Lots to do nearby with the new bike park, due to the weather we visited the aquarium which is good & been upgraded since the last time we visited. We will be back here again one day as we still lots to see & do in Napier & I know we can stay here & expect the same great standards as always.

This place has got every thing you could need in a holiday resort and is very well run. I stayed there when I was in Napier for bussiness in the motel block. It is set back of the road so there is no noise that could disturb your sleep.The motel unit I had was very clean and well laid out, there is cooking facilities in the unit if you desire to cook your own meals, or if you don't want to cook there is a on site restaurant, bar with a great menu (note not open for breakfast). This place is ideal for groups plenty of room to park a bus or truck. As for the family there are plenty of cabins and motel units to choose from and it has a great play ground and swimming pool for the kids. If you chose to tent it or have a camper van there is plenty of sites and kitchens, shower blocks and toilets situated throughout the resort. There is a shopping center just up the road on Kennedy drive or if you feel like a stroll into the city it only took me 20 minutes. don't want to walk or drive well the city buses go regularly from Kennedy Dr

Great place, very clean and with good facilities. The kitchen is big, with lots of sinks and cleaning products.Toilets are big, clean and well equipped too. I guess the park can be quite crowded with families in the summer, but it's an awesome and quiet place in the low season. The position is good too, only minutes drive away from the Marine Parade and the city centre.
