We truly loved our stay at Taupo DeBretts. Lovely brand new change rooms even with heated floors. The thermal pools were wonderful and the kids loved the playground area. Definitely returning again in the future

I would be embarrassed to take a tourist here. It is in desperate need of an upgrade. The changing rooms were extremely basic. Paint was peeling in the pools. The lifeguards wore white gumboots. We couldn't leave fast enoughMore

Hi lynet2017, We are afraid you may be confused as to where you have been as we don't have white gumboots (although we are unsure of why this would be an issue at all) and our pools look fantastic. Thank you for your time spent...More

It was good place to stay in thermal pools in Taupo for a really good money (with voucher) but dont expect five stars facilities. It looks quite old and in the water is dirt from nature around but still a nice place especially for kids.More

It was my first time in a hot spring, so I don't have much to compare it to. The park seemed like it saw it's heydays a few decades ago, but it was still a great environment. Very family friendly, however, and the slides were...More

Great way to spend and unwind for a few hours, with the whole Family, fair prices, and the Family change facilities were not that flash but great children pool - we would be back again!

Hi Lorraine, I'm sorry but unfortunately our studios do not have the extra space to accommodate extra beds, there just isn't floor space available. Regards Tracy.
