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.

Such a beautiful place to stay beaches all around, one just across the road where you swim safely and also launch boat. Management and staff are very friendly, helpful and professional. The place is very clean and tidy. Facilities like the kitchen and common areas were equipped with everything you needed bbqs gas stoves, place to clean your fish as well as to wash down you boat ample space for the kids to play. Couldn’t fault the place definitely would recommend and so will be returning.

A beautiful restful location right beside the beach. Clean and tidy with an exceptional kitchen. All facilities were of a high standard and well thought out. We would happily stay there again. An easy drive from Kaitaia.

Receptionist was very helpful in showing us where we were going to set up our tent and stay for the night. Told us where the best fishing spots were and they didn't disappoint. Managed to get 1 legal snapper and some smaller ones. Had a fish shed, for filleting and keeping bait. A boat wash area. Very good facilities for comfortably staying for a while. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who is wanting to do some GLAMPING and travelling the far north.

Been to a few Top 10's on this trip and this was the worst. No toilet paper on the evening we arrived or next morning. Men's washroom also never looked clean and not enough toilets or showers for the site size. I gained the impression it was a 'tired' site and needs some tlc to bring it up to standard.

What a fantastic place to stay! Awesome roomy sites with lots of variety to accommodate tenting/campers and more. The staff (special shout out to Donna) are incredible, super friendly caring and make you feel so welcome not to mention how clean and tidy the holiday park is! Great central spot to other fabulous beaches /spots and sight seeing is also an added bonus. Highly recommend.

Good place to stay. Lovely family camp. Tidy, clean and comfortable. Friendly staff. Good happy team of staff where nothing was too much trouble. Cabins were comfortable and had a balcony with table and chairs where we could sit and chill whilst keeping an eye out for our kids as they played with others and cycled about.

Best holiday park ever! Clean, comfortable, friendly, great facilities and the price is the best for what you get. The holiday park is super close to Maitai Bay, Rangiputa, Karikari Beach and Tokerau Beach so if you are looking for a change one day, you can drive no more than 10 minutes to another beautiful beach.

My partner and I enjoyed a 2 night tent camping experience at Whatuwhiwhi top 10 holiday park. The campsites were a very ample size allowing for 2 large tents and to park a ute. The site was flat and had sufficient shade to stop the tent getting too hot in the sun. The kitchen facilities were great! Very tidy and even had utensils and plates and cooking equipment to use during your stay. The bathrooms are clean and well appointed. The staff are super friendly and helpful. We loved the games room with air hockey table, Foosball and ping ping table. Across the road from Whatuwhiwhi Beach the park is situated well for a fun beach holiday. With many attractions nearby and a manageable distance for a day trip to Cape Reinga. Highly recommend
