  • Definitely recommend getting a massage. We got a couples "Fassage", and weren't charged extra for use of the couples room. So you can get a joint massage for the price of whatever massages you pick out. (And the massages were AMAZING). Also, you get to soak in the hot pools for free with th purchase of a massage, and they have a good number of private rooms/pools that are first come first serve. Very nice place and would love to go again if we come back to Taupo!
  • Absolutely fantastic camping and pool experience. Definitely one of the easiest and most convenient campsites I have stayed on anywhere in the world. Staff are super accomodating. Campsites are generally quite generous, able to handle more than one large tent. the Camp Kitchen is superbly equipped with urns, fridges, freezers, barbecues, chilled filtered water, even sets of knives and forks and plates should you have forgotten yours. The unisex bathrooms are beautifully finished and very well set up for privacy. The pools are a delight, my kids managed to run up and down the stairs for the slides for 11 straight hours...
  • This resort claims 5 stars but it couldn't be further from that. We stayed in a "motel" room, which was very dated and somewhat dirty. There were spiders well established in all corners of the room, which showed nobody had cleaned there in a while. The bathroom was also rather odd: the mirror was to the side of the sink rather than in front of it, the only hangers to be found anywhere were also in the bathroom. Overall the furniture was old and rather unpleasant. Housekeeping changed our towels but didn't make the beds. The only plus was that the staff were friendly and helpful. However, I would not recommend staying here.
  • Me and my partner stayed​ at DeBretts for two nights, attracted by the amazing reviews. However, not sure if we were just unlucky with the accommodation we were given or if we missed something... Good things first - staff has been absolutely fantastic throughout. At the motel and the pools. Friendly and helpful. The accommodation was a different story - we were greeted by several spiders in each corner with a rather big one just having cought a big fly hanging on the lamp above our heads. We went to reception in order to obtain a broom and insect spray to clean out the room. Overall, the room was very dated and dusty and not pleasant at all. We were considering checking out the same day and move to nearby Hilton but that would have been extremely pricy as we had already paid for the room at DeBretts in advance. As I said, maybe we were just unlucky as some of the reviews talk about amazing, clean rooms. We just didn't see any of that.
  • Nice and clean. and all necessary items in kitchen. Lots of parking. Close to main town centre.
