Trucks thunder up and down the road right next to the campground all night long. The road is the main road for the port - logging trucks mostly, an they are even worse when they come back empty. We also weren't impressed with the customer service. We asked a staff member about an issue (a locked door to the facilities)and...

Very basic room with no facilities but a kettle ( but no water) Quad of similar rooms with a communal kitchen at the end. Had to "prox" card everything, kitchen , bathrooms even the freezer. Can't say it was value for money or good but a dry room on a very wet day.

This is one of my favourite Top10 holiday parks due to the fact that is on a stunning beach it's close to the shops and restaurants and the site itself is very clean and well run. The facilities are spotless, the showers the best and so hot and with fast running water. It's really got it all with tennis courts...

An older park that's been kept in reasonably good condition. We took a 2 bdr self-contained unit. Bedrooms were a little small but certainly adequate for their purpose. Indeed, those comments would apply to the entire experience. Sitting area was spacious and well laid out. Kitchen, with the two burner hob, was OK as was the half fridge. Very small...

We travelled down the Eastcape and saved the best until last. Waikanae Top 10 had it all. Fantastic site, approachable, friendly staff, immaculate amenities (even though the camp was full), and a big bonus-the Sunshine Brewery was only a short walk away. A camp that we will visit again.

What an awesome place to stay, right on the beach front and so close to town with about a 5 minute walk to the Main Street. The camp grounds and facilities were kept very clean and tidy. Swipe card access to use the bathrooms, kitchen, fridges and freezers so it felt very safe and secure. Sunsets were just beautiful on...

I stayed here over New Year - 2016/17 - I stayed with son and his wife and two children in a two bedroomed self contained flat. The flat was adequate but very small - but other friends stayed in onebedroomed flats and they were a lot better - a lot more room and not as tired. The overall size difference...

We stayed for just over a week with our family (5 adults and 1 child) in the beach Bach and it was wonderful, staff were friendly and attentive. Was lovely sleeping with the sound of the beach right outside. Our 4 year old was sorted with the play ground so close and also the peddle carts were a great hit!!...

Worst camp site in NZ so far. Highly overpriced. Tiny camp spots. Ugly compartments. The only nice thing is the view of the bay. The camping ground will prevail however, because there are rarely any alternatives around. We had free campsites that were better than this.

Thank Roberto C
