Terms & Conditions

We appreciate your co-operation

Respect for people, place, and the planet

We kindly ask that you agree to follow the House Rules that are in place to keep everybody safe during their stay .


If made your booking directly with us, we will work with you to make any reservation adjustments necessary so please  email us as soon as you can.

If your booking cannot proceed due to NZ Government Covid-19 travel restrictions, we will be happy to make the following allowances:

Non-Peak Booking Period: You choose either a full refund or a full credit.

Peak Booking Period, 24 December – 8 February: You will receive a full credit to rebook at a later date, within the next 6 months

Inaccessibility to the Resort:
If in the event you are unable to access the Resort due to road closures on the Coromandel Peninsula which prevent you from driving to Cooks Beach on the day which your booking is scheduled to commence, you are entitled to be refunded for the day/s which you are unable to access the Resort.
Please advise us before arrival if you want to change the number of people in your reservation. The maximum number of people allowed in accommodation is specified in the Room Descriptions, and there is a maximum amount of people per camping site. Any changes outside of this policy is at the discretion of Management only.

  1. Reservations
    Reservations are a contract between Cooks Beach Resort (‘us’, ‘we’, ‘our’, ‘management’) and the person, aged 18 years and over, named on the Reservation (‘you’, ‘your’, ‘the reservation holder’).
    Reservations are not transferable to any other persons. This means that the person named on the reservation must occupy the site/room for the duration of the contract, and is ultimately responsible/liable for occupants and visitors of that site/accommodation. Cooks Beach Resort reserves the right to cancel any booking (without refund) whereby the person named on the reservation is no longer occupying the site/accommodation.
  2. Check-In and Check-Out
    The reservation holder must register and pay any balance due on arrival, before we will allow any access to sites/rooms. If you do not check in with us when you arrive, your booking may be deemed a ‘non-arrival’ and cancelled without refund, allowing your site/accommodation to be re-let. Check-In time is 12pm for camping and 2pm for all other accommodation. Check-out time is by 10am for all accommodation and camping. Please do not ask for early check-in or late check-out during Peak Season.
    If you will be arriving late there will also be a number on the Reception Door for the Duty Manager if there are any problems.
