We stayed here for one night and we looked for a campsite to actually enjoy the facilities. This campsite had it all, hot thermal pools, outdoor pool, steam hangi to cook your dinner, boiling mud pools and close to the water.
It was reasonably priced and the kitchen facilities we're clean and adequate.
Our only problem was there was a large school group staying which we're noisy and rude. They played football against our van and were up most of the night. Can't be helped but a shame as it did spoil the night.
The reception staff are extremely helpful and even gave us a discount on a trip we wanted to do the next day. Would recommend a stay here.

Regrettably, we only stayed a night in their private cottage. Full kitchen, BBQ and hangi available. 2min walk to beach where you can dig about 2feet in the sand and get hot bubbling water filling a hole for your own person hot tub. Wonderful staff on site that have been running his place for years attracting wonderful guests.

Spent a dreadful night at a different campsite in Rotorua and decamped to this one the following day. Staff friendly and helpful. Great location. Lovely little thermal pools. The 'dig your own pool on the beach option' looked a bit grotty but that really isn't the campsites fault. Didn't try the Hangi but liked the quirky nature of this extra option. Would be happy to stay here again. (Powered site option)

Stayed in a 2bed cottage. Very basic, very sparse facilities (2 towels for 6), and looked like it hadn't had a proper clean in a good few months judging by the size of the 5 huge cobwebs we tried to avoid.
Mineral pools were a nice feature but again pretty dirty.
Wouldn't recommend for anything more than an overnight stay when nothing else available.
Only reason it wasn't a one ranking was it was slightly cheaper than others (although personally would have paid the extra for another if available)

We loved the facilities at this campsite: its geothermal swimming pool, hot tubs and option to cook in a traditional thermal oven. The place was clean and well cared for with friendly staff who were happy to try and get the best deal for us on local tourist attractions.

Very nice camping with, if you're lucky, a heated campsite. The facilities are clean and good, only the kitchen is a bit small. There is a hot pool and a swimming pool, both warmed by geothermal activity. If you stay there, you MUST try the Hangi steam oven.. one of the best (and healthiest) meals you'll ever have! Close to the holiday park there's a "hot water beach", which is also nice.

we were going to stay one night on our travels but stayed two.Friendly staff, clean toilets and kitchen, short walk to a hot water beach,will be good in the summer. A 10 minute walk into town along the lake edge was well worth it,beautiful sites. Two hot pools, a heated swimming pool and a free hangi to cook dinner.will be going again.
