We camped here for 5 nights in the powered sites. Good facilities available and clean. The only niggly thing was that the pool and spa pools are awesome but spa should really be open throughout the day - that way, if it was a rainy day we could still have the use of it during the day as a free...

We booked a two bedroom unit for a two night stay, the unit was really spacious and very clean and tidy. The beds were super comfortable and the towels and sheets were great quality. The only thing that needed fixing was the ranch slider door was extremely hard to open and close. But other than that it was a great...

Stayed in one of the units. A little bit worn out but overall was cleanly presented, which counts for a lot. Able to take dog which was also a plus (outside only which was all good as we didn't spend a lot of time at unit)

We stayed for one week, on a camper van site because after the first night we thought it was a nice place. However, after two nights we felt that the staff was annoyed if we asked them anything (we didn't ask often though, only three things) and gave only short responses. This doesn't apply to all of the staff, we...

Hi there, thank you very much for taking the time to post a review of your stay with us. We take all complaints very seriously. I spoke to the staff member involved with your injury, and they advised that the after hours notification came in the late evening. We don't supply ice on the park and that would be the...

We were in Rotorua for the Whaka100 & wanted to stay somewhere that would be 'mountain biker friendly'. We booked the self-contained family unit which was perfect for what we wanted. The unit was tidy & well laid out. The beds were comfy & the bathroom was adequate. The staff were friendly & helpful. Whilst the location wasn't close to...

A nice camp about 10 minutes drive out if Rotorua. Has a handy McDonald's about 1 minutes walk from camp. Only issue is that planes fly very low over the camp. I love planes so not a problem for me!! We would stay here again.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review your stay with us! The Rotorua Airport is approximately 1km from our park. Air NZ fly with their smaller aircraft in our little airport, and they are quite a sight as they come in to land. They fly at reasonable hours and hope you enjoyed viewing them as they flew...

This is a basic camp about 10 minutes drive from the centre of town. We got a campermate discount so for $28 it did the job. There were things here kids would like such as a pool, tramp and playground. We were allocated the worst boggy site but as there was only one other person in the campsites we choose...

Thank you for choosing to stay at Holdens Bay Holiday Park and for taking the time to post a review. Due to the unexpected amount of rainfall in Rotorua recently, our grass sites did become a little saturated. Staff are always willing to ensure that everyone enjoys their stay and we are glad that you said something, and moved to...

This campsite was good value for money, it is difficult to rate it accurately, as some things were great and others weren't, mainly the shower area was pretty cold and could probably do with an update. That was my main quibble, however, it was cheaper than other campsites, they give you 1000MB of WIFI, they help you book tours, have...

“There are a variety of rooms on offer so make sure you know what you're booking - we didn't have a sink or TV, we didn't need it - but make sure you're getting what you're looking for. Also, while yes, the camp is under the flight path for the airport, I reckon we only heard 2-3 planes per day and none after sundown. Not a big deal.”

“The park is situated on a flight path directly behind Rotorua International airport. However, the disruption from the planes was minimal. All rooms would be effected by the planes but the airport seemed to have low aircraft traffic.”
