We had a bottom level room which was the best as you just walked out onto the beach. The food was absolutely beautiful. I'm still trying to eat the "tropical breakfast" at home. But it was the staff that made our stay. I'm sure they worked like 20hrs a day. They were amazing & we had a great stay. My... More

The Moana Villa is comfortable and the size is great for two couples or a family with kids. It's location is fantastic and having wigmores next door for shopping is greatly convenient. It's clean but could do with the walls painted and furniture steam cleaned. The TV in the lounge was terrible quality and only had two channels. Other than... More

This is my first time to any of the Islands so I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. Coming into the arrivals lounge we were met by a local lady who directed us to our transfer desk. Here we were presented with a ei (flowers around your next) and quickly taken to our hotel. The hotel was open and airy... More

Got picked from the airport. The hotel didn't seem much from the outside. If you are looking for glamour, this is not the place. This place is perfect if you are looking for a little slice of paradise, on the beach, with a front desk that will bend over backwards to make sure you have the best stay possible. We... More

This was my second visit to Rarotonga. On our first visit we stayed at a larger resort and so this time I opted for a smaller place mainly for wanting accommodation with less people. We were warmly greeted by Jay Jay at the airport and were given a lovely lei. When checking in I asked the girl at reception if... More

We stayed at the Moana Sands for our friends wedding. It was perfect for that with friends coming from all around the world. We stayed in a suite on the third floor. It was very spacious however the shower was terrible as it went really hot and then freezing cold. When speaking to our other friends they all had the... More

We found Moana Sands a very friendly and happy place to stay. The staff were always helpful if you had any inquiries and even though our stay was only five nights you felt like you were all old friends. We found the meals very good in the Restaurant and never felt the need to go elsewhere if we were at... More

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
