Awesome place to stay. Friendly staff and lovely surroundings.
Jacqueline, au4 night trip with friends
Good 6.0
Run-down resort on a great, family-friendly stretch of the lagoon. The resort is in desperate need of a renovation. The rooms are small, dirty, and easily let in mosquitos. The sandwiches at the restaurant are decent, but everything else is not-so-good. A good budget option.
Jessica, us1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
We felt very safe here. I would recommend a beachfront room, not a beachside. We could walk out of our room right onto the beach and use equipment provided by the resort to snorkel in the lagoon out front. The water was crystal clear except during or soon after torrential downpours, which happened often. Room was cleaned meticulously, sheets and towels were great, bed comfy, and staff always polite and friendly. The continental breakfast seemed okay at first, we loved the frsh fruit, but would have appreciated a hard boiled egg now and then. I know its an isolated island but we had to buy all our drinking water which we had to buy daily, as local buses are only once an hour and expensive. It would have been a big improvement to have one bottle water provided each day. We also had to pay for wifi, but $10.00 lasted me for a few days if I used it sparingly. The resort restaurant, Andys , was ok for a dinner now and then, and we loved the staff singing and performing for us twice weekly at happy hour. I would highly recommend this resort, just dont forget your mosquito repellant and sunscreen.

Christine, au6 night romance trip

We enjoyed our stay at the Rarotongan! We went as a big family group to celebrate a family event and the Hotel were very accommodating and helpful the whole way through. Despite us being a large (and maybe demanding group), they were happy to assist and make last minute changes. Most of all we loved the service of the staff! They were highly helpful and gave great tips about exploring Rarotonga! The Hotel itself is a bit run down; the rooms do appear slightly old and outdated. The pool and beach were great. It was great having complimentary snorkel and water equipment. All in all great value for money!
