“Not many other choices.....”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

This is a favourite of ours, having stayed here multiple times now, and I have to admit, it is always a good experience.

However, be warned that prices shoot through the roof in the height of Summer, and $60+ for an unpowered site is a bit rich.

Can't fault the place though, generous sites, lots of choices including self contained cottages, and plenty of amenities to please all campers.

We had a motorhome this time, and were self contained, but there is a seperate kitchen, free hot water for the showers (lasts about a minute at a time), good communal kitchen, and a shop, but if you have a cell phone, or need wifi, then cross your fingers for a signal.

Overall very good, but could be better value and certainly a stronger wifi signal would fix all our concerns. We will be back again...

Room Tip: Stay in the paddocks, much quieter and less lights to keep you awake at night...

Thank you for placing feedback on our page. It is certainly a more expensive time to stay on the coromandel over summer but we are pleased you found the park an enjoyable place to visit. We hope to see you here again next summer

We paid $70 a night to stay on a powered camp-site expecting fantastic Facilities. Kitchen was way to small for the amount of people there while were there and only about 1/2 of the camp-sites were occupied We used the family showers since there were 3 of us. I'm not sure how 3 people are meant to shower in 5 mins. The staff at the counter were very friendly however the friendliness ended there from the staff. Rather than telling us off for various things that we had NO idea about you could improve the signage. If you're after a family friendly atmosphere this isn't a park to visit. It seemed more geared to tourists visiting the hot pools.

Other reviews comment on the price but the owners justify by saying it's what other parks charge. We went to another park with identical facilities at the same time of year 2 hrs from Auckland(and we had a ocean view) but it only cost us $36 rather than the $70 a night here.

We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay here with us at Hotwater Beach. Its a shame that you did not take the time to read your park map which clearly shows a 2nd ablution block at the other of the park and another kitchen in the park for our guests use. The park map also showed you the 16 showers available for our guests in the main facility block. Our staff do spend considerable time with each customer explaining our facilities, and there is signage on each block showing the showers or toilets for our customers information.

The park indeed is a very popular place over peak time for both our domestic and international markets and our team work very hard here to ensure all our customers enjoy their stay. We run a childrens program over summer, and provide several other tour booking services for our customers.

The two of us stayed in cabins here over 4 nights - the first night in a Deluxe Cabin, the subsequent nights in a Standard Cabin. Definitely go for the Deluxe if you can - slightly more solid and a bit roomier and more pleasantly situated than the Standard (which might move around a tiny bit as it is on wheels). Rooms were clean, very sparse, but we really didn't need anything other than the fridge.
You aren't looking for luxury if you're staying at a camp ground, so don't expect it; but everything was functional and suited our needs perfectly. The one niggle was how busy the shower facilities got at peak times in the morning and evening, but we allowed for this simply by showering much later at night - also new shower blocks were in the process of being built during our stay. With regards to bathroom facilities in general, make absolutely sure you pack jandals to wear into the showers and toilets - the floors could get a bit nasty. Kitchen could be a little busy too, but it was just a case of being patient.

The ground itself has good accessibility, with easy boardwalk access to both sides of the beach.Good takeaways from the campground shop.
If you are planning to tent, be aware that the noise from surrounding tent plots or paths might be irritating.

Beautiful area and a fun beach to visit - would definitely recommend!

We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay here at Hotwater Beach Top 10. I totally agree that it is a very busy place to be over peak season and the ques for showers and the other facilities is somewhat longer than our shoulder or offpeak seasons. Changing your shower time was a sensible choice.
The deluxe cabins are our latest addition and yes they are again proving to be a very successful addition to the park.

Loved the campsite. Was only staying 1 night but succumbed to 2. Having family showers as well as normal male or female was a great innovation for us.
My only gripe is with other canmpers, not the owners. How on earth do you stop people throwing their used cigarette butts on the ground around the campsites. It is just awful. if you're a smoker, can you consider others before you throw your butt away around the campsite that I want to hire please!!!!

Thank you for your review. The family showers do prove very popular with our families groups, and also the timer for the hot water is located inside the shower which gives our customers the opportunity to shower alittle longer.

Cigarette butts, the gripe of our lives, we provide several bins for them but I am afraid to say that some of our customers do not see this as littering, your post may remind them!

Looking back at our 10 week holiday in New Zealand we reached the conclusion this was our favourite campsite. Due to the good and clean facilities, friendly staff, excellent location and, maybe, the excellent weather clouded our judgment.

The most expensive and least attractive (in the sense of facilities and service) of any Top10 parks we've been to so far. We were there in busy late December season with long waiting times for showers (number of showers can't cope with huge amount guests) or the use of the kitchen and everything was quite dirty. The location makes up for a lot though with Hahei & Cooks Beach close by. There is a fish and chip shop on site but it pays to drive the short distance to Hahei to save a lot of money.

The coromandel is definately a very busy place over peak time and yes there are ques for showers. Often people miss the other facilities we have in the park, and it is only a short walk to oanother block of showers and toilets are the other end. There is also another kitchen as shown on the park map which seems to get missed from time to time as well. Hopefully you will visit the coromandel again and maybe over some of our quieter months.

We stayed two nights on a non-powered site. The camground is very large and only a few steps away from Hot Water Beach. To Cathedral Cove and Hahei beach it's only a short drive.
There were many guests on the campground so it was sometimes a little bit crowed in the kitchen and the showers (they had only two showers, but some more unisex). But the facilities werde very clean.
You can rent spades for Hot Water Beach at the reception.

We hope you enjoyed your summer holiday on the coromandel. As you commented the park is very very busy over peak time and i sincerely hope most of our international visitors can travel alittle outside of peak times. This is not always the case but the best experiences i feel on the coromandel are outside of this hectic time.
