Very good 8.0
Two night short stay
Stayed for two nights in November post wedding at a villa. Staff were all very nice, and upgraded us to the suite (2nd floor, closest to beach) which had a great view. Pool was big, all amenities clean and tidy. Personally I think it’s a bit expensive for the accomodation

Exceptional 10.0
Small, quiet 24 roomed adult only hotel with pool and restaurant. Food nice, staff friendly and helpful. Rooms spacious, most with lagoon view. Would choose again if I came back.

We had a really great time at Moana Sands Lagoon Resort. The property is brand new and the staff are excellent. We received a room upgrade and loved it! Note: If you're flying Jetstar beware that they delay flights often. We ended up missing our first nights accom.

Good 6.0
Clean, Modern hotel and rooms - But bad Air Con
Nice hotel, modern rooms, nice pool... but sooo hot, and I mean hot. My friend and I spent 3 weeks in traveling throughout the South Pacific before our stay here, and this was the hottest night we had. The Air Con barely worked. Service was good albeit a little weird. When the front desk assistant realized my friend and I were extending our stay in Raro for a few more days but didn't have a hotel booked, she was very persistent on us staying at the hotel. Once she realized we booked a different hotel her whole mood changed. But overall it was ok.
