Nice and picturesque views but accomodation is shabby, plus artful owners don't let you enjoy the beauty of this place. Especially for overseas people-if you don't want to spoil the impression of the hospitality of NZ you don't need to come Opononi Holiday Park.

Don't go here!!!!! Owners don't seem to want guests at their holiday park. They told us to hurry up when we were trying to make a payment by card, because they wanted to finish their dinner. Campsites were ok but the facilities are below standard. The next morning we were trying to dry our camping gear before packing because it...

This place does the bare minimum required for its paying guests. Kitchen utensils are in a crate on the room of your floor, for you to put away; Your allocation of dishwashing liquid is served in a plastic cup by the sink. Not even a small bin for rubbish. The facilities in the kitchen are ancient (settings unreadable on microwave...

Dear visitors, please don't stop here, the owner Harry is rude and nasty. Rich location, poor amenities, not even a rubbish bin in our cabin. Place was smelly too. We're from not far away and it left a bad taste, I hope overseas people can avoid. You have been warned :)

We stayed here for overnight. The cabin was terrible, the amenities always stank and seemed like they were hardly cleaned. The facilities are tired. The beds uncomfortable, the lack of hot water, actually it wasn't hot water at all. The owners are rude. I think they are mentally not very adequate people if they allow their self offence their clients...

If you can keep away from this Holiday Park and the owners!!! It seems to me that they hate their clients. The owners are very nice before you paid, but after you pay the manner of changing for the worse. Summary: nice nature but greedy and despicable owners.

We arrived to read a sign no refunds, this should have been a warning. The wife Jenny pleasant enough , Harry made us wait in the carpark while he mowed the lawn and chatted to alongtime guest, 45mins later he informed us where he wanted us to park and proceeded to dictate how my husband should drive and then continued...

The owners were borderline rude on our arrival, the woman became a little more friendly, but her husband was a little intimidating. Over the duration of the stay he generally made you feel like you were an inconvenience to them. It is a nice enough camp site with decent facilities, laundry, kitchen, and communal eating area as well as swings...

The situation is nice, but the camp "hosts" are the least friendly, welcoming and helpful we have encountered. Yes, the facilities are tired, but the hosts behave as if they don't want people there. I felt as if they regarded me as stupid or bad or both.
