This was our first stay at Taupo Top 10 Holiday Resort. Powered camp sites were a good size for tents, car and trailer and the lagoon style pool was fantastic, although water temperature was too warm for my liking. We had a planned stay of 10 days in early January with friends on an adjoining tent site. The first issue...

We used to go all the time as it was affordable and fun in a great location but now they have put the price up quite high compared to how it was so we have stopped going. They are a great place to go and all but the have extended their price so much it is just unreasonable.

Wow we loved this place! The resort style pool offers a little bit of luxury amidst a casual camping holiday - the perfect combination and stunning entertainment for the kids. Excellent value - the pool bar/restaurant is very reasonably priced and food is delicious. Kitchen and bathroom facilities immaculate and well maintained. Highly recommend for great family holiday that accommodates...

We stayed on a tent site as we had previously stayed a couple of years ago and had great memories of the camp. However this time round we were really disappointed with the attitude of the staff who didn't seem to be very customer focused and we believe that the "once daily " cleaning of the bathrooms was totally inadequate....

Sorry for your disappointing visit.

I can't begin to express my disappointment with the "refurbished" top 10 camping ground in Taupo. Let me start by saying that we previously visited here annually for years, and loved it. After taking a break from camping for the last 4 years, we were excited to return with the anticipated "lagoon" style pool. We stayed for 8 nights and...

Thank you for staying with us. We are very sorry your were disappointed in your stay. Unfortunately poops in the pool are out of our control, guests need to check whether their children need to go to the toilet. We do have rules and regulations around swimmer nappies which are on our terms and conditions. Unfortunately we can not control...

We chose to go to Taupo for our first camping holiday with our two children because it wasn't too far from home. And it seemed logical to chose a Top 10 holiday park. First impressions were good. Reception staff were lovely and pool looked incredibly inviting. We were met at our tent site by a member of staff who gave...

Although the pools are fantastic & facilities are good it's a typical top 10 campground with biz first & people second. Some friends wanted to visit us & they wanted to charge them $65 for x1 adult & x2 little kids basically the price of staying a night. They only wanted to visit for an hour. Every time you visit...

Really impressed with the upgraded pool area, kids loved it and hubby liked the swim up bar. Campsites good sizes and campgrounds are well maintained with clean bathrooms. Lots of things to do for the family and close to all attractions.

Fantastic holiday spot - Lustys lagoon is fantastic, shallow and deep parts, a cave grotto, outdoor kids movies every day, relax in the hot pool with a piña colada while the kids splash around and watch a movie in the evening. The kids enjoyed the playground, hiring the buggys, biking around the resort, adults liked the bar in the pool!...
