We stayed at this hotel for the beginning for our honeymoon. We had a beach front room at the hotel, we had airport transfers and were provided with a flower lei on arrival. Check In was smooth considering we were on the red eye flight arriving at 1.30am. The room had a double bed, microwave, air conditioning and shower in... More

My husband and I have just returned from getting married in Rarotonga and all our family and friends stayed with us at the Moana Sands Hotel. I really can't say enough about this hotel. The rooms were lovely (having recently been refurbished), it is ABSOLUTE beachfront, the staff were fantastic; nothing was ever too much trouble, it is on the... More

The hotel is right on the beachfront with excellent coral reefs for snorkelling. Clean rooms, good facilities with a direct view of the sea. We were initially put in a room which had a broken air conditioning unit so this probably was not checked beforehand. However, after informing them the next day we were upgraded to a far superior room... More

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
