Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Went with my niece while up in Auckland for a mini trip, was definitely one of the top high lights of the trip! Wish we had more playgrounds like this one around, even managed to get up to the top a few times for a slide down ❤️

    We wanted to go to a market on Sunday and after not having been to Takapuna for quite a while, decided to go there. I was surprised to find out that the market would not be in its current location for much longer. It looks like August is their final month. What a shame. This is pretty much a Takapuna institute.

    The market has an eclectic mix of stalls, ranging from plants to crafts, produce to food vendors. We mainly went for the food. One stand out was the Sri Lankan stall. The samosas were tasty and the pakodas to die for!

    On the other hand, we bought some soft tofu from a different vendor and it had gone off and tasted sour.

    Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again!- Bjorn Again perform live in Auckland - amazing energy at Bruce Mason Centre. Bjorn Again trumps with rollicking good fun, sing-along melodies of way back when; enduring timeless hits. Glitzy 70s costumes, we get to DressUp as well – just fab! Young, older fans, 'n' enthusiasts in-between of ABBA - fantastic.. (I have gait/walking challenges (stroke), wear a legbrace.)

    Had my son's 12th birthday party here and the boys had a fantastic time. They did an escape room and laser tag. The staff are wonderful. I highly recommend Thrillzone.

    This is a fair priced convenient located restaurant on the "foreshore"of Takapuna beach, well worth visiting for a quick bite or for a time to linger longer.

    The park is located around the back of Takapuna lose to the main center. There are a few parking spots in the area including one The heads to the Bridge club and Pumphouse theatre, and another beside the Takapuna public pools.
    The park itself is quite large. The top area has quite a few large trees so there is quite a bit of shade. There were also a few trees with rope swings attached to them. The view from the benches is quite nice, giving a paronamic view of Lake Pupuke.
    The public toilets are beside the restaurant by the pier, close to the Pumphouse Theatre. The grassy area there has a bird more bird poop but it is quite close to the lake. It looks like you are able to jump from the pier into the lake. There are also quite a few water activities on the lake. It was quite a nice park to look around.

    The staff at Berkeley Takapuna are always lovely and really helpful. Parking in the area can be a bit of an issue as the car park is usually quite full and you cannot guarantee that you'll get a park.
    The cinema itself isn't a large complex however the toilets are located downstairs from the actual cinema so make sure you pop to the loo first!

    My sister and I had a hot stone massage, and it's one of the best we had - I can't wait to the next. It was soooo relaxing :)
