“Could be so much better if . . . .”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

Nearly (5) five months ago we booked this holiday park for three (3) persons with (2) two bedrooms. What happened, they did only have such a chalet for (1) one night, for which we had to pay an extra 10$NZ, for their mistake! The second night we had to cramp together in a small "chalet" probably designed for a young family with youngsters, but certainly not for adults!

Room Tip: Book and see what you will get before you pay a deposit.

Dear Rene,
Thanks for your review. I hoped you liked the Art Deco festival in Napier.
When you made your booking in August last year, you booked for a Tourist Flat / En-suite Cabin. We confirmed this booking by E-mail as well. We try to tell our customers what they can expect. Please see below the text in the mail you received from us. It was mentioned that you booked our 1-room unit for a very attractive price per night. When you checked-in, we tried to help you and we did provide an upgrade to our 2 room self-contained unit. As we were fully booked for the weekend we could unfortunately only help you for the first night. I think we did our best to accommodate you in the best way we could. We only asked you $10 for the upgrade (you received quite a discount) and had you stand-by if we had a cancellation. From our point of view we try to help everyone as much as possible, but mistakes are not always ours!

On the booking confirmation you received: “Tourist Flat / En-Suite Cabin - 1 room, Queen bed with linen, has a single above it and a 2 high bunk bed. (Extra linen for singles is a one off charge of $5 per bed). Has en suite toilet and shower. Has a microwave, electric fry pan, jug, toaster and Freeview TV. These are standalone units. No Sea views - Check out our other units if you want Pure Beachfront. IAC Internet available”

The units are simply constructed, compact, and practical. Carpeted, with comfortable bunk beds. ( 3 single and 1 double), shower, toilet and wash basin. A table and chairs, microwave,TV (although the reception wasn't flash). I was amazed that the unit didn't feel at all cramped . Outside was a deck with chairs and an umbrella.
There is a Cafe on site, open from 8.30 am to 4.30 pm. This location is right by the sea,quiet, but very handy to Napier.
We found it an ideal spot from which to explore the area.

Hi Brenda,
Thanks for your review. We are happy you had a good time. Next visit you will notice we have a new TV in the unit. The specialist had a look and apparently the internal TV antenna connection was faulty.

This beautiful spot keeps getting better and better. Craft club for the kids at 4, new shade sails, new planting...and it still has the charm and calm of our previous visits. Super friendly staff, bikes for hire, cycle trails on the back doorstep...Great place to explore - we used it as a base for the East Cape, and left the big tent safely for two days without any worries. Cafe is wonderful to meet and greet folk. Love the beach for fossicking and exploring. Can't wait to come back - we love being in the tent - can't beat canvas magic! Super clean and well equiped kitchen

Room Tip: Relax and enjoy

Had a great time at the Bay View Snapper Holiday Park. The cabins were comfortable and clean and the people were very friendly and helpful. The food at the Snapper Cafe was particularly good. We were right on the beach that had some beautiful views.

Excellent night away fishing, a few steps to the beach, great view from our flat. Loved that we did not have to lug fishing gear and a few beers far from the flat, also being able to light a fire was awesome.

Thank you

We had a lovely time glamping at Bay View. We hired their little tin hut which came equipped with Fridge, very basic kitchen and dining utensils, microwave, jug kettle and TV. Water was available nearby. Everything was clean and well presented. Site also had hardstanding and grass pitches. If we'd had better weather I think we would have hired the bikes and cycled into Napier. Great for families.

Room Tip: Book early for one of the better cabins.

This place is located only about 10 mins away from the main city centre. It has a great coastal walkway at its doorstep. Enjoyed waking up to the sound of the waves. The rooms were clean & tidy. We received a fresh set of towels everyday. The electric frying pan in our room was not working, but was replaced in less than half an hour by staff. Excellent service and a beautiful place to relax and enjoy. I will definaly be going back when in Napier.
