Lovely stay at this campground. Very tidy and clean facilities. Next to cycleway which is great. One downfall is it is near the airport and planes fly overhead. They do stop after 9.30pm and start again at 6.30am which was OK.

After being a regular Tahuna camper for 40 years we had yet another wonderful year with family and friends. During 2021 areas of the camp were upgraded including new planting, very tidy and clean with lots for the kids to do.

Great stay at tahuna beach camp, close to the beach and excellent weather almost guaranteed. Been going there for last 40 years. Not far to visit lots of beautiful places, kaiteri, Nelson lakes, farewell spit, just to name a few. Lots of lovely restaurants and outside dinning to choose from also wineries to visit, the playhouse theatre has great entertainment up moutere hills not far away. Lots to do if your looking and if you just like swimming and resting it’s great for that too. Oh and the biking is the best in the South Island we bike most days just fantastic !

I stayed in a Motorhome this time round. I enjoyed My stay & the Location I was given 5 min walk to the Beach / Fun Park / Model Railway which operates mainly at the weekends. Is so great Located not to Far from town, I used the Public Transport to get to the centre & shop the Bus Service is very reliable & times that suit. Tahuna Motor camp is situated in a very good location close Bars & food outlets. Or if you want to just relax is awesome that too Relaxing & quiet. There is another area where dogs are allowed as well just check with the camp first.. .

A great experience from start to finish during our stay at this campground. The staff at reception were very welcoming and easy to deal with on arrival. The site we got was in an elevated position with stunning views overlooking the beach into tasman Bay and was a joy to wake up to! The facilities were excellent, very clean and well maintained. We will definitely be back!

Large campground we were placed on a caravan site near the beach. Great views and good grass site. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating. Facilities at our end were old but very clean. Handy to some good local restaurants .

We stayed in the 2 Bedroom Apartment. It was clean, quiet and comfortable. Friendly staff, great location next to the beach, park, cafes, restaurants and KFC. Very chilled and relaxed atmosphere. Fun for the young and old with several amenities and activities available. We did mini golf, hired the pedal karts and had real fruit ice cream at the cafe. Only down side would be the uncomfortable beds but that is a personal preference that shouldn't reflect on the overall experience of this holiday park. If you want affordability options for a family, then this is a great place.

Loved our stay! We stayed in an apartment motel unit super close and convenient for the bars and restaurants around Tahuna. Room was really clean and had all the bits and bobs needed to cook a decent meal, there was even plunger coffee and more than just one pack! We asked for a porta cot which was left made up in the room (nice not to have to try and work it out ourselves) The grounds are looking great there was alot of work going on which I assume is for summer. The flying fox was being erected when we stayed and it looks massive. Super friendly staff, had a lovely brekkie at the cafe too before we left. Can't wait to come back!

The original booked sites were a little muddy due to recent rains so we were offered a different sites closer to the office on firmer ground. The staff were friendly and went out of their way for us. Very pleasant experience for our first tome in a MotorHome. Facilities were bright and clean, always plenty of soap, handtowels, loo paper etc. If we had to say something that was needed it would be a little more lighting and also heating in the bathroom facilities.
