We stayed here with a relative for 7 nights recently. The villas are very clean and attractive. We stayed in a ground floor villa which gave easy access via a couple of stairs to the beach. There were many fish to look at and it was a great place to snorkel without having to go to deeper waters. You could... More

En route from Albuquerque, New Mexico, to New Zealand, my husband and I decided to break the long trans-Pacific trip with a stop in the Cook Islands, taking advantage of Air New Zealand's weekly (Sunday) nonstop from Los Angeles. The clerk at the LAX duty-free shop told us that he'd heard that the Cook Islands were "like Hawaii in 1930"!... More

The bed was comfortable and the ensuite clean and tidy and had a make up face cloth which was really appreciated but unfortunately... More

We stayed in 302 and found the room to be really good, the views are spectacular as you look over the ocean. The hotel is located on one of the best beaches on the island, it is sandy and you don't need reef shoes. It is in a really good location, right beside Little Polynesian, which do beautiful meals and... More

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
