Honestly there is no camp site/family accommodation place like it in NZ. The pool facilities are 5 star (a swim up bar in NZ? Wow.) as well as the location, grounds and amenities. Will be staying again!
The perfect destination for a get away! We stayed 3 nights and wished we had booked longer! The cabins, pools and general resort area is kept immaculate! The staff are friendly and helpful. Our children loved the playground, jumping pillow and hot pools. There was so much to keep us all entertained! I was recommended this place by a friend and it did not disappoint! We'll be back, hopefully soon!
Where to start? Forget overseas travel right now and book in here. The heated swim up bar, the movies and Pina Colada's in the pool, the games room, the kids bike/skateboard track, the playground, the giant air pillow, the accommodation , the 2 new houses...omg the list goes on and on. Just GO THERE ...it's incredible
Best family-friendly accommodation in NZ! Daily big-screen movies in the pool, swim-up bar with cocktails, playground, comfortable clean rooms with a choice for all budgets, all-day swimming, did I mention the bar.. in the pool! You really feel like you are in another country, a complete holiday experience from check-in until check-out. This resort is absolutely the best place around!
This place has the best pool in the country. You should go. It is amazing. The swim up bar is fantastic - try the doughnuts. The resort staff are very helpful, there is a great playground, and everything is close when you stay in the cabins. This time we stayed in the 10+ room and it fit ten of us comfortably. We will definitely be back.
Such a lovely place to stay with family. Amazing reception staff and exceptional food and beverage staff looking after us all. Beautiful comfy cabins, definitely recommend this resort for families. Many thanks for the awesome getaway.
“Was an absolute wonderful experience.. the camp from the facilities to the space for campers.. the pool and lovely customer service.. was such a lovely place we will be returning that’s for sure..I highly recommend.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The atmosphere was amazing. Staff were very helpful! Everyone always had a smile on. Amenities were always pristine and clean considering how many people were staying, full house! Thank you all so much. Have been raving about the place since we've been back. See you all soon.
“We stayed at a non-powered tent site for 4 nights/5 days. Common Bathroom/showers and kitchen were always clean. Staff members were friendly and helpful. The pool was the best part of the experience for my daughter.”
We're still all-GO at the Red Setting.
