Been dying to get back to Raro for some time now and thanks to a great Grabaseat deal I made the most of it. It was great to be back at Moana Sands in a familiar environment. It's comfortable, clean accommodation on the best stretch of beach. Even better now that they have their own transport from the airport to... More

When we arrived at the hotel there was only one other couple staying and we feared the worst, but eventually a few other people arrived and we had a very pleasant stay. Our room was on the ground floor and the patio doors opened onto a wooden deck and then straight onto the white sand, palm fringed beach with fairly... More

for a more relaxing fun and memorable holiday. We had friends who stayed at the other moana sands but they all liked our Taikura apartment the best out of all! The beachfront villas are also very nice. I will definately be back!!

The dated Moana Sands Hotel in Rarotonga provided just enough to tick the boxes. It was clean. Since it was Christmas their restaurant was closed due to low vacancy.. Breakfast was supposedly provided. This obligation was fulfilled by a staff member bringing us a covered tray at 4 pm the day before bearing a small bowl of cut up fruit... More

Much like many of the reviews here, the view is outstanding! We had a week at the Moana Sands hotel and i could happily have stayed longer. Lovely staff who were really friendly (our cleaners particularly liked our ongoing jigsaw!). Snorkels and flippers are readily available and the fish are totally amazing. We pretty much did that all day. We... More

We are currently back at this magical hotel for our fourth time. It is only small but just what we look for. The staff are what make this hotel, we are made to feel like one of the family. We have already worked out our dates for next year. Located on the best beach in Rarotonga
