This was our first time in Rarotonga and I am so glad we chose this resort. We were a family of 4 with 2 boys 12 and 13yo and they never got bored!. The location and facilities were fantastic. The beach in front of the resort was lovely and to be able to snorkel right there as well as kayak and paddle board to the island make this place special. The staff were lovely and service great. Being at Muri beach gave options for eating out as there were a number of choices in a short walking distance however we also enjoyed the food at the resort and it was reasonably priced. We took advantage of "happy hour" each day; a great way to end the day lazy at the beach with a cold one! We would definitely go back to this resort.

Located on Muri Beach, this hotel is adjacent to the Muri Lagoon and less than 10 miles from the Avarua Town Centre.All air …More
We very much enjoyed our stay at this resort, the units were private but still open and close to all the facilities(Restaurant,Bars,pool,and beach etc) All the staff and owners were extremely friendly We had no real complaints at all and would highly recommend this place
Had six nights in a beachfront room in July. Wonderful outlook - we could step out onto the beautiful white sand beach. On the first two days we saw a whale just outside the reef. We requested a resort transfer on arrival at Rarotonga - our flight arrived at 1.30am. We were met and welcomed with flowers.
Breakfast buffet was included in the room price and was adequate. The local bus stops right outside the resort. There was a selection of reasonable restaurants a short walk from the resort so we did not have to eat at the resort if we didn't want to.
Staff were friendly.
A lovely stay.
Amazing location directly on the lagoon where you get up each morning & make a short stroll to the water. Staff were friendly & were helpful with any requests as well as giving local advice to ensure you got the complete experience in the Cook Islands.
This island paradise is perfect for complete relaxation & what you see in pictures is exactly what you get. Good little hideaway which has not been overly commercialised.
Everything about our experience was excellent. We had a relaxing vacation and could not recommend this hotel more. The staff we all so helpful and accommodating. It was really hard to
leave, but we have great memories and hope to return soon.
Club Raro is the perfect place to stay but go lagoon front if you're looking for somewhere nice. Perfect location, service was the best we experienced in Raro, private, yummy cocktails, gorgeous views - watched a few whales from our rooms. Definitely recommending it to all our friends & family
Our expectations of Aro'a Beachside Inn were high after reading the reviews and certainly did not disappoint. Set in lovely gardens with the most beautiful sea views every aspect of our stay was wonderful. The staff at Aro'a are fantastic, always ready for a chat and a bit of fun including the two dogs Sammy and Kuri. Fresh soft fluffy towels daily, great shower pressure and spacious accommodation.
The Beachside Bar was great fun and a good chance to meet people but as they close at 9 o'clock, did not pose any noise problems.
The rooms had basic cooking facilities (two hotplates and a microwave) so not great for full self catering if thats what you need.
The beach is pristine with beautiful clear water and great snorkling. Lovely trees to provide shade.
Would we go back again - you bet.
