The villa and surrounds are beautiful, and we really did love our time spent in the cook islands. However, after seeing such fantastic reviews on trip advisor, we were very disappointed with the staff at this 5 star resort. The maids and ground crew were lovely and working hard. However, the receptionist was very unwelcoming and seemed rather bitter. A... More

Kia Orana, The directors of Te Vakaroa are deeply concerned about the treatment you received as one of our guests. We were aware that our front office manager has been under some stress recently and have offered her time off and shorter hours to assist in recovery, that aside there is no excuse for the poor manners shown. The spa... More

Slight delay with airport pick up. Was given an upgrade to the 2 bedroom villa. Washing machine and dryer available in room to use. The surrounds is well looked after. Staff were very helpful and polite. The location of Te Vakaroa Villas is perfect. Right on Muri Beach. Very quiet and private. 2 min walk to Sails restaurant and Pacific... More

A wonderful villa (No 1) on the ground floor. Amazing views from the villa, across the small but beautifully maintained garden, over the infinity pool to the beach and lagoon beyond. The distant sound of waves crashing on the reef creates a constant (but fairly quiet) booming sound, which we found quite soporific. The Sails restaurant next door does good... More

This is now my 2nd time staying here at Te Vakaroa and is my only choice on the island. I love the feeling of the exclusiveness and only having 5 villas in total. The secure access gives you peace of mind to enjoy. Another nice thing is not having young kids running around. It's a special spot, you can do... More

Had five nights here at Te Vakaroa and it was heaven! Although this is accommodation, the decor and furnishings made me feel I was 'at home'. Beautiful beach location and a fantastic view from my one bedroom villa. All the staff were friendly, helpful and I was made so welcome. Will definitely return here and stay longer next time!

Website doesn't do it justice - if anyone complains about this place then they obviously can't be pleased. Great service, awesome view, safe, everything at your door step. Excellent pool facilities. A shame the spa was out of service when we were there. Only hiccups were a few broken things in our villa, but they were fixed quickly. Would stay... More

My wife and I stayed with another couple and our experience was first class in every way. The rooms were beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean, the property was intimate, attractive and immaculately maintained and the service excellent, all on stunning Raratonga. Nick was also the consummate host. We would recommend to anyone.
