We stayed for 6 nights, absolutely loved it. Peaceful and beautiful. The snorkling right in front was some of the best on the island. Wonderful to get up in the morning and walk into the sea and then sit on the balcony with a cup of tea. We stayed in a bungalow that was back from the beach but it... More

We were looking for a beautiful beach to celebrate our 25th anniversary - and we found our way to RBB in Rarotonga! We were greeted by Lucky & Tom and spent the most amazing 6 days in a private tropical paradise. Our bungalow was immaculate, breezy and comfortable. Our view was amazing and the water changed color- from bright blue... More

The MOST relaxing, welcoming hotel and beach we've ever stayed at! Lucky, Tom and the whole staff consistently bent over backwards to make sure we were always happy and have everything we needed. The bungalows themselves were perfect! I felt so comfortable being there and sitting on the porch, literally just a few steps away from from the ocean and... More

We have just spent 10 days staying on Rarotonga Island (Cook Islands) in the Rarotonga Beach Bungalows. There are only 5 bungalows in this little piece of holiday heaven, all very clean, comfortable and beautifully designed and all standing on lovely white sand that is raked every morning. There is also the breakfast room and the early arrivals/late departure lounge/cabin... More

My husband and i had an amazing time at Rarotonga beach bungalows. The island is a perfect place to relax and enjoy. All the staff were amazing and friendly and recommendations of things to do were helpful and spot on for us. The bungalows are perfect in every way.

We booked a package from the states. It's a great place to get away, there are just the 5 bungalows and a couple other rooms in the main building. We there the end of November, so it was a bit wet, but we planned to swim anyway. The owners and staff are great - very friendly. It was mainly couples... More

Once again my wife and I recently spent another three weeks in paradise at RBB. I have submitted two previous reviews on this little piece of heaven and now after five visits we have to confess.... it is the exact pristine condition we found it the first time we came in 2005.

Raratonga Beach Bungalows (RBB) was absolutely beautiful. Tom and Lucky are great people. They make you feel very welcome and comfortable. The beach is beautiful, snorkeling is good and the water is warm. Can't beat the price through Costco.The bungalows have everything you need for a very relaxing vacation. Highly recommended!!!

I just wanted a bungalow on the beach for a week of relaxation ( and a little diving). The Rarotonga beach bungalows are perfect for any length of stay, self contained, clean, plenty of room to spread out, relax, and right on the beach. Hosts were friendly and helpful. The whole arrangement is intimate and private, while being as social... More

Best place on the island for a beautiful tropical atmosphere. Extremely well maintained, clean, quaint, beautiful, very tropical, romantic. The owner and staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Will never forget the place. Right on beach, only 5 bungalows so not crowded, good continental breakfast. Get front bungalow if possible, but all of them are really nice.
