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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Pools are currently undergoing renovations and a 20% discount was applied but it should have been more given the state of the amenities. The women’s changing rooms where in a stinky garden shed with a curtain covering the entrance. The one family changing room was dirty and wet with nowhere to store dry clothes. Pools were unclean with hair and dirt.

Great spot with excellent facilities including pools of various temperatures. The children will be delighted with the water slide. Our unit was very comfortable although instructions on how to use the oven would have helped rather than playing trial and error.

We stayed in a very comfortable and clean cabin for 2 nights. The bed and bathroom were great which is the best way to judge an accommodation place. The only negative was there were no clothes lines to hang out the washing if you used the laundry. There were spaces where these had been so I would suggest they are re-installed as we prefer to use them rather than the driers.

We stayed at DeBretts Taupo resort for a night en route back from a wedding in Hawke’s Bay. The room was spacious, had a terrace and lawned area overlooking the mountains, a large comfy superkingsize bed, and a spacious bathroom. All spotlessly clean inside the room. The kitchenette was a handy addition. Probably the kindest and friendliest reception staff I’ve come across in a long time. Well done whoever manages the accommodation side, you’re absolutely on it. We also trotted down to the hot springs pools adjacent to the motel early the next morning. Although surrounded by pretty tropical gardens, the pool itself was full of insects and leaves. When I asked the dark haired lifeguard who was busy playing on her phone if she had a net, she fished out 1% of the beetles, floating on top of the water, yawned, then went back to playing on her phone. So the management of the hot pools area needs tightening up!

We held a family reunion at DeBretts recently and the venue couldn’t have been better. We were quite a large group and DeBretts were extremely accommodating and the staff couldn’t have been friendlier or more helpful. We had people in villas and units, camping and in caravans which were all great options for us. The units are well equipped, clean and comfortable. We had our own shared outside space which was perfect for coming together as a group. An amazing weekend was had by all. Thank you DeBretts! We’ll be back.

This is the 5th time I've stayed here; everything has been fantastic. Great place to come camp or take a cabin, fantastic amenities and great to have the pools just next door. Wonderful stay, I'll be back very soon.

DO NOT BOOK THIS! Our room was not clean. Maybe appears clean if you walk in and see beds are made and the trash is out but look closer. Hair on the pillows, floors and walls. Dead bugs on kitchen floor. Empty soap dispensers. Dishes were dirty with dried food on them. No lake view for us. We got to watch employees from our “chalet”, smoking. We learned our lesson and will pick the back packers lodge next time!! We have better luck with those. On a side note, if you go to Rotorua, book the Ramada Resort by Wyndham!! So clean and super attentive and has a washer and dryer so you can catch up on laundry and keep traveling 😊

We were staying on one of the powered sites with our camper whilst on our honeymoon across NZ, De Brett’s had some of the best facilities we have experienced on our trip! The showers, toilets and kitchen were spotless. The pool is a nice bonus compared to most campsites for a small fee

Our large family had units 6 and 7 for the weekend. Rooms spacious, very clean and tidy. Easy parking. Nice childrens playgrounds and well kept grounds. Walk down to the hot pools may be too steep for very elderly or disabled but once there what a beautiful spot. Surrounded by bush, trees. Located a bit out of town but easy to get to if you have a car. Would highly recommend staying here with a family. Plenty to do with hotpools and playgrounds. Oh and the view of the lake and mountains beautiful too

Hi Sharon. We are truly sorry about your disappointing stay. The cleaners should have checked the oven. You are most welcome to ask for more toilet paper at reception. We have two hydroslides operating, but one was closed for a time that day for maintenance; we are sorry for the inconvenience. We apologize if one of the reception staff were disrespectful in any way; we strive to be friendly and helpful at all times. Thank you for your helpful feedback.
