“Beachfront Bliss Villa”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

If you want a weekend for two with no where to go but be with each other I would recommend this resort and to book into Beachfront Bliss Villa. We had Villa 23. Its equally as beautiful in winter and we were fortunate to have a warm sunny weekend. Its a great escape with beautiful views and semi private surroundings. The staff are welcoming and accommodating and you are quite independent. There is a kitchenette and a bbq near, beautiful bathroom facilities and the bed is amazing, comfy and warm. There is a heater in room. There is a flatscreen tv but we didn't use it, we left our door open and watched ocean and listened to the crashing waves at night. I am rested and ready for a great working week.

Room Tip: Choose beachfront Villas, We had Villa 23 and it was great for two people.

Thank you for taking time to write a great review about your stay with us! And add some beautiful photos of the beach from your room! The Beachfront Bliss Villa is definitely one of a kind, there is nothing better than relaxing in the tub or having a BBQ for dinner while taking in all the lovely surroundings. We have been lucky enough to have the sun stick around for a little longer this winter and glad you got to enjoy that. We look forward to having you stay again!

Got the motel unit right infront of the beach. It was our first stop starting the roadtrip (AKL to Queenstown).. I still wanna go back and wish we've extended our stay.. The star gazing, oh my god.. If you're like me, city girl/guy and barely see stars.. You will love the nights there.. Ended up with some great astrophotography!

Room Tip: If you can afford it, get the beach front private unites to enjoy the views while having your coffee...

This is the 2nd time we have stayed in a 2 bedroom garden villa and I would have to say they are one of the best motel units we have stayed (we travel around NZ a lot with sport)

The units are spacious, have a full kitchen with oven and dishwasher, fantastic double shower, the lounge is roomy with 2 sets of doors opening onto decking.

The only negative comment though is the units are not fully serviced every day only towels and tea/coffee no beds made, floors washed etc. if I was paying up to $270pn (we got a good deal) I would expect full service as with other motels/hotels at this price which let's down an otherwise fantastic stay. The villas also are not beachfront but are in a nice setting. We would probably look at comparative motels in future in terms of value for money.

It’s great to see you returning to stay with us at Papamoa Beach Top10. Our 2 Bedroom Garden Villas are fantastic for families, they come fully equipped including an oven, dishwasher and Sky TV. The garden is sheltered from the rest of the park giving you an extra bit of privacy when you’re outside on the deck. We offer a daily service which includes new towels, coffee and tea top up, rubbish emptied, bathroom cleaned and vacuuming if necessary. We do a full service every fourth day, however if you wish to have extra cleaning added to your service each day your can request this upon check in. Keep an eye out for our Winter Specials and School Holiday Deals coming out! Look forward to seeing you again!

I was booked in to this park with my husband for an overnight stay by a third party. When I heard we were staying at a campground, I wondered what we were in for. I was extremely surprised when we pulled up as this was not what we expected. It was very flash for a camp ground! The resort is beautiful. Well maintained with loads of facilities for all kinds of holiday makers and an excellent play area for children. We stayed in a beach front villa which was excellent. Absolute beachfront, two bedroom, self contained villa. Very modern, warm and comfortable.
The staff were very welcoming and friendly and knew all about the area and all the fun activities.
The resort is only a few kms form the mall and Mount Maunganui.
Great security as you had to have a swipe card to get in and out of the grounds.
The resort is next to a good restaurant too. Bluebiyou. Fantastic views, great menu, good prices. The wine is great too!
An awesome night and I wish we could stay longer. We will definitely be back with our son at some stage. A perfect family holiday location.

Room Tip: Get a beachfront villa for the most beautiful view to wake up to.

Unit small but adequate, tidy and clean. The villas look very nice, we will stay there next time.
The unit was warm and cosy and had everything we needed but was very basic.
Location Is excellent, right next to a beautiful surf beach, a nice restaurant and within easy walking distance to supermarket, food shops etc.u

Room Tip: The villas look to be the best value, a little more luxurious that the holiday units.

We stayed here in one of the deluxe cabins which overlooked the beach ... Very clean , had everything we needed. The park was clean with great facilities . The position was great though I wonder if in the middle of summer it would be too noisy as the cabins did overlook the car park. The staff however were exceptional . Great service and very helpful and friendly .

We are lucky enough to have a fabulous location which is the only one right on the beach front in the Bay Of Plenty and still close to everything you need. We take pride in providing our guests with the best experience possible and it’s great to hear you enjoyed your time with us! The Deluxe Holiday Units are located on the beachfront with wonderful views over the Papamoa Domain, the carpark and Papamoa Beach. Many of our guests do enjoy watching all the beach-goers during the summer, however for those that wish to have totally un-interrupted views of Papamoa’s white sandy beach, the Beachfront Villas are the top choice. We hope to see you in the future.

Papamoa Beach Top 10 Holiday Park is located near State Highway 2. The park has the beach at its doorstep. At walking distance you find a shopping mall and a fashion centre.

Arriving at dusk after a day on the road, we were welcomed by the park's receptionist. She quickly checked us in for a powered site and we got a convenient spot. As it was off-season some of the large number of showers & toilets were closed. The communal toilets and showers were clean and well maintained.

The 16 acres large seaside park offers cabins, studio units and powered & unpowered sites. Apparently the park is a popular holiday destination. In summer it must be a crowded place. For cars & camper-vans it has a code controlled entry.

The park hosts quite a number of semi-permanent & weekend residents scattered over the park which gives the park at places a somewhat shabby outlook. Facilities include private spa pools, TV room, coin-operated laundry facility, shared kitchen facility, internet kiosk, mini-pétanque and a BBQ area which we all didn’t use. We had Wi-Fi internet for NZ$ 7 per day.

Considering its outlook and notwithstanding its ocean side location we found Papamoa Beach Top 10 Holiday Park slightly overpriced for the quality offered. Nonetheless we recommend the park to all who need a site for their camper-van.

Thank you for taking time to write a review about your stay with us at Papamoa Beach.
We are lucky enough to be located right on Papamoa Beach, offering many different types of accommodation to suit all. Having Papamoa town centre just down the road from us is an added bonus!
We take pride in providing our guests with a quality product and exceptional service at all times, it’s great to hear such good feedback on this.
We offer a variety of facilities for our guests including a kids adventure playground, jumping pillows, library with TV, internet kiosks and many more. One of our most popular facilities is the private bathrooms which are accessible to those who request the swipe card at reception.
We are sorry to hear that you feel that our fees are over-priced as we feel that our product and services are value for money and we are fully aware that our pricing is very competitive inline with many other parks around New Zealand.
It’s great that you enjoyed your time here and we hope to see you again in the future.
