We were two families tenting here for the long weekend. Very impressed with the facilities, clean, and lots on offer. It rained the first day/night but with the common room and TV/computer room we were able to get away from our damp tents and still enjoy ourselves.
Bathrooms were really clean, free showers were great - 5 mins is long enough in my opinion with water pressure being awesome.
Kitchen was clean and tidy and the extras like pots/pans to use was a bonus.
Love the outdoor covered area by the bbq too.
The kids had a ball on the bouncy thing and on the playground.
The camp is big but the way it is set out doesn't make it seem like you are in tent city!
We made use of the fish and chip shop one night and it was a bit pricey but that's to be expected for convenience. It was great that the shop stocked bread milk and some other essentials but again you pay a bit more. But it it's a small price to pay if desperately need an item it's right there.
A short walk to the beach and a short drive to other beaches made our stay even more enjoyable. We all enjoyed ourselves so much that we are getting another group together to do it again next year.
The only gripe we had, and this is no reflection on the staff at the grounds, was teenagers from a kiwi experience bus yahooing and using the playground/bouncy thing very late at night (after the 10.30pm quiet time curfew) but after my partner went out and asked them to stop they did right away. Also parents of small children who forget that they aren't the only ones camping and others are still sleeping at 6.30am when let their kids play outside shrieking and screaming.

Room Tip: Look at the map and decide from there. If you don't want to be woken up early by kids on the playground or late at night by teenagers using the skate ramp or bouncy thing, choose a site further from these places. Also, be aware that there are dorms as well and could be noisy at times. As a camper, choosing site with a sheltered tree area such as the sites along 133, 134 were perfect.

We stayed in a standard queen cabin which had a really nice bed and a convenient fridge, looks really cool and new inside too. Excellent for only $80 a night considering so close to Hot Water beach. If the room doesn't have a fan just go to reception and ask as we did. Facilities such as kitchen, BBQ area, bathrooms, internet/lounge room are superb. Fish and chip shop is so good and definitely recommend the Hot Waves Cafe just up the road. Staff are helpful and friendly and there are lots of brochures for nearby activities. 10/10 experience and look forward to next time!!

Stayed here in the 7-person family accommodation for two nights to visit the Hot Water Beach. The place is around 700meter walk to the beach. Room comes supplied with good linen. Towels are free but you have to post a $5 refundable bond each. Water in the park is drinkable and tastes good. Communal facilities (kitchen, showers, toilet) are above average standard. Ensure you bring your toiletries/groceries/food as the nearest supermarket is a long drive away. The onsite store has some supplies but are a bit expensive. Staff are friendly.
Ensure you go to the beach 1-2 hours before the lowest tide as the beach gets packed really early and you won't be able to get a spot. If you want to avoid the 700m walk, you can drive the car to the a nearish carpark which will shorten the walk to around 200m. Note that there is a $2/hr parking fee if you use the parking near the restaurants. The best place to dig is where you can mix both the hot water and cold water spring into your self-made spa pool. It'll be scalding hot if all you get is the hot water. Enjoy!

Room Tip: if you're after a 6-7 person accommodation, pick one with a ceiling fan as it gets too hot in the room in the summer.

We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at hotwater Beach. Its very disappointing to hear though that our staff were not helpful and I have had a meeting with our office staff to remind them the importance of customer service at all times. Hopefully you will come back and visit our park again in the future.

We just spent a fabulous week at this amazing holiday park. The facilities were just great - very modern and clean. The shower pressure was awesome! Our campsite was amazing - room enough for large tent and a small tent, boat and vehicle with plenty of room for visitors. The staff were very helpful and the shop was great. The playground, bouncy pillow and go carts are a fantastic addition for families. The Fish & Chips and Real Fruit Ice Creams were an awesome holiday bonus. A beautiful area with lots of fun activities for everyone. Will definitely be going back.

The highlight of our job here is reading positive feedback from customers who had a memorable holiday here at hot water beach. We are so thrilled that you found your stay enjoyable, even over the very busy peak time of summer on the coromandel. We certainly hope to see you here again during the year or next summer.
