The beach bar menu was limited in selection of food. The TV in room did not work properly. 3 channels of snow. Even if it did work it was tiny and 6 feet above the floor. Lounge chairs in unit very uncomfortable. All units came with built in alarms. The roosters crowed from dawn to dusk. Five stars plus for the staff, grounds and location.

The friendly smaller nature of the property and the personal service that comes with that - quite apart from its stunning location right on the Aroa lagoon

Spent 2 weeks in Rarotonga and the week at Aroa beachside was the highlight hard to summarise as so much to commend, the snorkelling just outside the resort was great, watching the whales breach at breakfast unforgettable, the room was spacious clean and comfy. The hosts Steve and Geraldine and their staff so helpful and informative, the music nights the best on the island and can Steve sing AWSOME...highly recommend. Will be going back.☺️👍☺️
