  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Check for stormy season before you travel, also suggest you check out the other islands rather than staying just on Rarotonga

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

We checked in at 7pm and checked out at 10am due to flights so can only comment on room, service and location. - amazing bedroom, comfy bed, white sheets and towels. Lovely bathroom, big shower, free toiletries but should rethink Single use plastic. Liked they had put a jug of cold water in fridge rather than bottles. Lots of tea/coffee in room. Good size room especially important if staying for few days. Nice beach section. Staff we encountered friendly! We even were able to shower after checking out and getting our flight used their pool towels. Location wise, nothing is close by so will need to use bus which stops at hotel or hire a scooter. Restaurant food we had in evening was average.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Reception staff attitude could be improved. Rooms are too close each other and could hear other guest’s noise, then sometimes did not feel private. Location, private beach and adult only policy are excellent. It was good that we could use all the facilities throughout the resort.
