A great place to stay. Great service and amenities. Loved the time spent in the pools. Thoroughly enjoyed our Taupō getaway at the Reef Resort. This is a place I would return to. Not expensive to taxi here to town for a night out and very accessible to walk along the lake front.

My husband and I had the most amazing weekend escape at The Reef Resort, the hosts were so nice and welcoming, the room was phenomenal, it had a private spa bath and a really comfortable bed, the view was out of this world amazing!! It’s nice to know that it is child friendly with an awesome swimming pool - will be back for a family trip as soon as we can!

Everything about our stay from start to finish was excellent. Rooms great, well serviced every day. Pools outside are warm and great to relax in on a winter evening. Managers very helpful and friendly. Central location to everything you need in Taupo and surrounding areas. Definitely will stay again!

Room was clean, with lovely views, but a bit cramped with 2 kids staying in a 1 bedroom studio-had a sofa bed, but housekeeping kept forgetting to stock up on extra towels.
Excellent service from the managers. Very helpful and informative about places to visit and eat.
About 3.5km to the town centre-a lovely walk along the lakeside if you are into walking.
Best coffee in town served directly across the road in a container cafe. We got our coffee from here every morning.
Pool was warm and therapeutic but a bit small for several hotel patrons using it at once-so you can't really swim in it, just laze. Would be good if the pool is extended in time as this is where we spent most of our time while visiting.
Parking a bit of a mission especially if you have a big 4WD. First come first serve basis otherwise on the road parking.
Overall a very pleasant stay.

Room tip: Ask for a room on the third floor facing the lake for the best view.

Thank you for taking the time to review us - very much appreciated. Yes the pool is a lazing pool - bit too warm to actually do lengths in - it would wear you out. Parking is a mission but we try and make sure everyone has a park even to letting people park on the lawn in front of the motel. School holidays are always harder for parking so come stay again when it is quieter-we look forward to it.
