First year camping at Opunake and we are planning on going back again next year. Great for kids (especially the free range kind) in the camp site which is well fenced, and we struck very calm swimming on our week there so beach was also good. Facilities are good, clean and a good number of showers/toilets.

We stayed mid week for a couple of nights. Had a cabin which had everything we needed in it, even Ice in the fridge for our Gins. the beds comfortable and roooms spotless. The camp was very quiet unlike the last time I came in summer years ago with the kids. The beach was just a few short walk, and shops (4square) just up the road. Was a short drive up to Dawson Fallsa must do while here.

Fantastic location for families and the facilities are great. Unfortunately however our stay was tainted by very rude owners. We spoke to other campers and they had also experienced the same attitude and behaviour. It’s a real shame as we had really enjoyed our visit until then

Thank you for your review. Opunake Beach Holiday Park is about relaxing and having a great night sleep by the beach and that is why we have a quiet time from 10.30pm at night. If guests become rowdy we do go around and remind about the quiet time and that others are trying to sleep. Nearly everybody accepts this, apologises for causing some noise and then goes off to bed. Unfortunately at times there are others who are more concerned about themselves and having another drink or two and your group was one of these. Our guidelines, on the quiet time, are clearly set out on the front and back of our park map which is handed to guests at check in. Additionally, we had spoken to your group five times about noise over the two nights of your stay - your response was to move to another area of the campground and annoy other guests. We had a number of complaints about your group’s behaviour, so by the end we probably were blunt. Your group fell well short of our guidelines and showed no remorse for doing so and this is the reason we advised when you checked out that you would not be welcomed back. Opunake Beach Holiday Park is not the place for a party and we will respond exactly the same if the circumstances occur with any future guests.

we stayed in a small non-self contained cabin [would have liked self contained so as not to walk to toilet/showers, but they were booked out] but it worked out fine. Nice simple super-clean amenities. highly recommend for a nice 'old fashioned' holiday. Fab playground which 6 year old loved, easy access to beach, great bike trip or walking circuit to be done from the camp.

Opunake Holiday Park is a great little place to stay! It’s right next to the beach, clean and tidy with everything you need. Facilities are good and user friendly. We took a group of 16 and found it was a perfect place for large group, Wonderful place to visit, even in winter!
