This was just the perfect place to stay in Raratonga. Owners were very helpful. Facilities great and location was perfect. Snorkeling was very good. We had three couples and there was plenty of room. Deck was very large and wonderful for evening meals. Would totally recommend this villa.

We had a brilliant time staying at Sands Villas for a week in a wedding party. The villas themselves are well designed; it's easy to find privacy, and the decks and lounges are great for socialising. The beach is great, unspoilt and quiet compared to Muri (though only 5 minutes drive from the cafes round there) and the snorkelling seemed... More

Thank you guys for staying with us at Sands Villas and also for taking the time to do a review for us. We loved having you all here and so glad the little one enjoyed herself.

We had an amazing week here with friends, occupying all three of the villas and we had our own little bit of paradise. The beach is beautiful and pretty much all ours for the week. Great for enjoying the warm water of the lagoon and exploring with kayaks that were made available for all. Great deck, with a nice bit... More

Fantastic place to chill with family and friends. The deck is perfect for wines at sunset and yoga in the morning! Gorgeous spot. Lovely large room to suit a honeymooning couple! Great with kitchen facilities!

This is just the perfect getaway - family, romance, you could do it all here. The wedding party I stayed with all enjoyed themselves, often until the early hours as it's so easy to socialise between villas. The location and view speak for themselves. Spectacular.

Everything we needed for our stay, at our fingertips. We booked all three houses for the bridal party and family, which worked out great. It was so good I've sent one of my presenters from work there with her family. I can't wait to head back! :)

We have just spent 11 days at Villa Sands our children and grandchildren from 24 to 3 years. We all had a wonderful time. The villas were a safe haven, far from the road and with large grassy area for chasing or ball games when not snorkelling in the warm, fish filled lagoon, or playing on the beach. Each family...

We have stayed in these fabulous Villas twice and both times have had amazing holdiays with our family. Being away from the main resorts and just connecting together as a family away from our busy lives is invaluable. A home away from home lots of space to lounge around and truly relax and connect.
