We have read some of the negative comments people have made about this place in the past and feel most of it is unwarrented and unjustified! We have been to this location twice now, our last two day stay was this Queens Birthday Weekend, (2012) the pools were impecabley clean, well kept and well monitored by a lifeguard. The water was crystal clear and very soothing to the body especially the very hot pool! The couple who own the complex were very welcoming and we spent about 30 minutes chatting to Amro in the shop / office prior to going to our site. We were able to choose any site that we felt was the most suitable to us and Amro even offered to power up more private sites located higher up from the main ones near the pools if we wanted to go there. A very friendly camp with everything one would want for. We have a motorhome and two little dogs….. No problem so long as they were on a lead, poops picked up and kept out of the pool areas. Good to see a campground / pool facility that’s doggy friendly albeit by prior arrangement. Music while you bathed, shop offering food and a great water slide for the more adventurous! We had Tui’s, Fan Tails and several other lovely birds fluttering around our site, then there was the bird avairy as well.
A great place to go, worth the trip, very relaxing and laid back, the fees are very reasonable compared to other camps and pool complexes that we have visited.

We will be returning!
