Excellent. We stayed at a powered site which was located right near the pool and by all the facilities. The staff were lovely and helpful. We arrived well early and they still allowed us in which was great. We walked across the road to the beach and had so much fun on the tire swing. The pool is so fun and the spa is relaxing. Late August is def a good time to visit here. Probably the most expensive place we will stay at 110 for 2 adults and 4 kids overnight. Worth it though to recharge and have fun with primo facilities and great atmosphere.

We spent almost 3 weeks at this campground while self-isolating in the COVID19 NZ lockdown, awaiting our flights back home.
Staying here was easily one of the best choices we have made in our entire trip (we have been touring NZ for almost 3 months in total).
The people here a absolutely lovely and were doing their utmost to make our stay as comfortable as possible within the rigid Level 4 guidelines.
Luton, Janeen, Andy, Manon, Tim, Henna and Rob we can't thank you enough for your hospitality in those difficult times. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your wonderful place and if we come again to NZ we'll surely check with you again!

We easily rate this place 20 out of 10 stars possible, it's an excellent choice to stay which offers everything you need & more in normal times!
Stay safe!

This place was just ok. The front desk staff person never gave us a WiFi code. Plus the first site that they gave us had a car parked on it and a large motorhome over hanging on it. When I complained they said, “o naughty person.” No apology. They did move us. This place is definitely overpriced. However the best spot if you have a smallish vehicle is site #1. It’ll put you smack dab close to the ocean.

Thanks for your feedback - I'm am sorry that you did not receive your wifi code - there is wifi on site and we are told that by the end of the year we will be getting fibre which will provide us much better reception. At times we are certainly very full and being one of the oldest parks in NZ our sites are not large.

The $7 is only a bond for the return of the key for the cupboard with all the equipment in and so if that was not the case we apologise if that was not clear.

Horribly, horribly overcrowded. We were on the beachside parallel parked part, and ended up having to move because a caravan placed next to us meant we would have been unable to drive out the next day. We were in a Britz 6 berth van, but the pitches were way too small to drive on and off without driving over adjacent pitches and there was very little manoeuvring space. The toilets were OK, but small and unisex on this part of the site. It had too many pitches for the area - just greedy, really. And this was by far the most expensive site we stayed at in 4 weeks; nothing really to justify the price, given that there are better sea views to be had from the freedom camping in the car park just next door.

A good site of usual Top 10 standard. A bit crowded and commercialised, but good for family beach holiday. It was raining when we were there, so difficult to assess on behalf of foreign tourer, but large amount of housing development behind spoiled overall impression. It was a good stop-over on the way to Coromandel.

Probably an awesome camp for families who don't know what to do with their children but know they must do SOMETHING. Unfortunately for me there are just two of us and my partner is overseas on a business trip this week... So...I was that guy and it was awkward - which isn't their fault.

Facilities were super clean, and they had amenities on top of amenities on top of amenities.

Lovely site which spans the road. We elected to have a powered site on the part which overlooks the beach and has access to the beautiful. This has its own spotlessley clean facilites. Just a stroll over the road leads to the main camp with a good swimming pool and hot tub. It's fun watching/feeding their "pet" eels too.

We do have small sites as compared to other spaces, but unfortunately are bound by private homes - interestingly enough we are one fo the oldest holiday parks in New Zealand, and thus the sites are from days of old when guests only bought one car and a 10 by 10 tent - how times have changed.

Families! - this is your Holiday Destination!

For a young family with toddler and baby, It's such an effort to go away; however Waihi Beach Top 10 made it effortless, relaxing and a joy to be away! With the help of the fantastic reception staff we had a unit in a quiet pictoresque location with port-a-cot and highchair setup and ready to go. Dining was a pleasure with the bbq area under cover and right next to the indoor play area. How many of you, when you were on holiday, can say you had a romantic wine with your hubby while the kids quietly played in a safe secure area! We can!

We arrived there late in the evening on a wild night and found the reception staff very friendly and professional. We had booked one of the Self Contained Units across the road near the beach. It was great to hear the waves crashing and an excellent suprise the next day to see the surf in the light of day from our deck. The accommodation was very clean and tidy and the bed was top notch. We had no use for the bunk room and closed that room off. We went out for dinner at Flat white cafe...I wouldn't go there too late though as in the winter they close early. Food and service was good.

Perfect family holiday. Safe and friendly environment with heaps to do. A typical day; breakfast in well equipped clean kitchen. Wander across the road to the beach. Back for lunch while the kids take themselves off to the playground. Float around in the pool for the afternoon followed by BBQ dinner on one of the free BBQs. Kids take the leftovers to feed the eels. Campground quiet around 10pm. A well managed and well appointed, friendly place, the kids are already talking about coming back and we have not left yet.

Waihi Beach Top 10 Holiday park is an amazing place to stay with outstanding facilities including a pool for all ages and a relaxing hot spa. Not to mention the Gym, Sauna, playground for young kids including a jumping pillow (The list goes on). The staff are great and keep the holiday park up to speed ready for the next set of stayers. My stay on the beach side of the holiday park has proved worthwhile as the beach is just a few metres away. Great place to spend New year as there is a live band that really entertains the crowd. Really worthy of a Top 10 spot.

Had the enjoyment of the spa/sauna and pool area. Also spent a few hours in the gym with all the brand new equipment - nice change to some places with their run down gym equipment. Great friendly helpful staff which helped with making our stay all that more relaxing and enjoyable! Didnt have to worry about a thing - they made everything so easy for us.

Simply the best place to stay with kids. I have not found a better park in NZ! The park facilities are fantastic, well maintained and super clean. The pool was the best feature for my 3-year old – we spend hours in the pool and on the water slide (... and Mum sneaked back later at night when the kids were in bed for a soak in the hot spa!) And not to forget to mention the jumping pillow, especially the moment it deflates and all the kids meet for a last jump to call it a day. The beach, just at your fingertips is one of the most fantastic beaches in NZ. We searched for pipies and scallops and built many sand castles. One of the best family holidays we ever had and we will be back! Oh and did I mention feeding the eels in the stream??? My lil man did not stop talking about all the adventures he had at Waihi – there is so much to do in the holiday park and around Waihi. A must do for young and old.
