What a wonderful holiday! Possibly the best thing a bout or 6 days @ the Pacific Resort in late Feb/early May was the staff at this resort. They truly make the whole holiday. Attentive. friendly but not fawning. They joked and talked with us like locals. Resort facilities were fantastic - am in love with Sandals Restaurant - the only... More

We stayed for 3 nights in a beachfront room. We were upstairs, which was a shame as direct beach access was not possible. But the room was beautiful and the view was probably better than downstairs. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room very attractive. The included breakfast was plentiful and fresh. Everything at Pacific Rarotonga runs like clockwork.... More

The resort ticked every box for our family with young kids. 3min walk to store, local food market and other restaurants and traditional Te Vara Nui cultural centre. The resort has easily the best location on the Muri beach and lagoon. The service was excellent with friendly staff, and the biggest mention has to go to the Beach Hut boys... More

My first time to the Cook Islands and was traveling solo in June 2012. The cottage was large and comfortable and when I was skittish about the the geckos in the room, they came by and told me it was "good luck". I did move to a different spot the next few nights. The hotel staff were so accommodating and... More

we were very impressed with this place - the staff and service was everything we needed it to be. Simple, easy and always with a smile. The restaurant is well managed by Bianca who is always friendly and with a smile, the Bar staff were the same. Mat and the boys at the beach hut kept us very entertained and... More

We loved this place, all staff are so friendly and helpful especially Bianca the Maitre D at the restaurant and The reception manager guy who meet us at the airport on the shuttle bus not sure the name. We stayed there for 6 days on our honeymoon in the premium garden suite we decided to upgrade to the Beachfront Suite... More

We've been coming to the Pacific Resort since the mid 1990s and it never disappoints. However, pricewise Pacific Resort is definitely not a bargain! Very expensive and restricted wifi. Do not expect to be able to download movies or spend a lot of time gaming on the internet! But who needs more than basic internet when one is on a... More

This is our second visit (and review). The upkeep is fresh and tidy, food has improved, rooms etc still modern and relaxing. Live music in the restaurant is a real plus. Slight negatives in that cooked breakfast is not now complimentary, nor is the Stand Up Paddle-boarding. Also endemic across the whole island is the drop off in service standards... More

We stayed in one of the Premium Garden Villas and I cannot recommend this enough. Rarotonga is a very low key place to visit and if you're like me you're looking forward to at least a couple of nights where you cook spaghetti in the room and play board games. By having the extra living space the trip starts to... More

Loved the place, the people and the food! Such a great, relaxing place, the kids loved the water sports, we loved the food and drinks. Just everything you imagine a tropical island stay to be. Food in the restaurant was of a great variety and quality and the happy hour on the beach each afternoon was a favorite.
