Had a very nice room; some are heavily overlooked by others so beware the lack of privacy. We had 90 steps to our room (and some lengthy inclines) and there were others much further!!! 'Average' because the breakfast was very poor; staff told us that much of it is prepared the night before (like in prisons!!!) because there's only one...

Great outlook, native bush setting with chalets separate. You must be fit or able to walk up lots of steps as chalets on a steep hills with lots of steep uneven steps. Meals nice with attentive staff. Warm fire in the bar.

Very comfortable and pretty forest location, near to beach and other interesting things across the Coromandel peninsula. Each 'treehouse' is set right in the forest, very comfortable, with a verandah, an even touches such as bathroom floor heating. Also high quality other facilities such as swimming pool, tennis court, etc. Generally need a vehicle as limited activity and dining options...

The service was excellent, the people were friendly and very accommodating and helpful. The terrain is rather steep with the chalets in a lovely bush setting, but the readily-available golf-kart service meant that it was not a problem. Beds comfortable and great facilities. Restaurant food and service were also very good.

We loved our stay at Puka Park Resort, the room had everything we needed for our stay. All the rooms are set in the forest which ensures privacy and gives an atmosphere of solitude. We ate in the restaurant during our stay and thoroughly enjoyed every meal, absolutely delicious! The staff were friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble....

Despite the steep paths/steps to get to our room (cabin 33) we were taken aback by this romantic location. Our room was self contained, had a deep bath and double showers. The views are amazing and at night they have romantic lights spotted around the property. Definitely go and eat at the restaurant for at least one dinner. The food...

The chalets are well concealed on the side of the hill, and home to the local wildlife - including a possum which came for a visit down on to our balcony one evening. We enjoyed the spa, and I also hired a bicycle one day. Staff very welcoming, and all in all, a very relaxing stay.

It's our fourth/fifth visit there. Staff are always so welcoming at reception/check-in. The chalets always feel like home. The food is great (it gets booked out quite fast). It's a great place to retreat from the busy city. Wifi is a little weak but everything else is more than we asked for.

“Rooms closer to reception are easier to walk to, although there is a shuttle that will uplift you if needed.”
