Love the location of this property, just across the road from great snorkelling, shops next door and bus stops outside. Peaceful side of the island, will definitely be going back...

We really enjoyed our stay at Black Pearl, rooms are well equipped, great swimming pool and the eating guide compiled by Rangi is absolutely fantastic, and we had excellent dining experiences. Rooms are dated, so don't expect modern appliances or tv, however who needs all that when you're holidaying in the beautiful tropical paradise of Rarotonga.

Very friendly owner and staff made everything here run smoothly offering advice on car, scooter and bike hire; places to eat; local music and entertainment. Provided reef shoes and snorkelling masks for free. Enjoyed use of the pool too. Cross the road to a lagoon to enjoy snorkelling and sunsets.

Property was spotless, staff very friendly Property was on the western side of the island, nice and quiet with beautiful sunsets. Local bus was a treat going right around the island. Cabana had a separate bathroom, kitchen and very comfortable king size bed. Beaut pool and just across the road from the beach Other resorts with restaurants are walking distance away Very good location
