Stayed here for 11 nights. The location on the western side of the Island is good, with a 5 minute drive to the airport and 10 minute drive to the main shopping area. The resort seems a bit tired however there is everything here a family would need for a nice holiday stay. The facilities are good, with a nice... More

Our trip was a last minute arrangement as our holiday was originally planned for Vanuatu but our resort was badly damaged by Cyclone Pam so we took what accommodation we could get.

From arriving at the resort, we were made feel very welcome. I note especially "Mena" at the main bar. He made us feel like one of the family and chatted even when it was very busy. I saw him cope with some awkward customers in a very professional and friendly manner. He is your ace in the hole. Don't lose... More

Went for our first wedding anniversary. Got a room upgrade, lovely bottle of bubbly and fruit platter as a anniversary present from the resort. Pool was great although regularly occupied by splashing kids. Didn't manage to attend the daily orientation meeting...did they actually exist? Lagoon was right in front of the resort (like the rest of Rarotonga). Tennis courts, games... More
