Stayed for 4 nights over EASTER and enjoyed all of it! The private courtyard pool villa was really great. I don't think the hotel website pics do it justice. Its much bigger than it looks online and is very private indeed...perfect for swanning about in 'not much' clothes :). The beach is pristine, great snorkelling with all gear provided. Excellent...

A beautiful resort for adults (16 years) and over. Your own private chalet, beautifully presented, with a bed turn down each evening, with flowers and candles. Great beach, for swimming and snorkling, but wear your reef shoes. Shops across the road for basics and restaurants too. Bus stop outside. Breakfasts offer continental and cooked. Swimming pool is near the bar... More

We loved this hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, our courtyard pool suite was beautiful and we loved having a private space and our own pool. I would highly recommend the courtyard pool suite. It was great having a good snorkelling spot right there and fun for kayaking too. Rarotonga is a beautiful place with lovely people and... More

My husband and I stayed here for seven nights for our honeymoon. The resort was fantastic - we had a private villa with our own pool, which I highly recommend! We spent our days alternating between our private pool and the main resort pool - after a very busy year and some time in Europe, we were here to fully... More

My wife and I stayed at Crown Beach for 4 nights for our honeymoon. The staff were nice enough, but we were very disappointed by a few things that are really unacceptable considering it was out honeymoon and we paid close to $500/night for our room. Major Disappointments: 1) We flew in at 8AM (as we stated in our booking).... More

We spent 8 nights at Crown Beach Resort and Spa Feb 2015 and would recommend this venue to any individual, couple or group. Hospitality and privacy make this resort a must do. Island night also a must (Thurs) with the rest of activities available. Food awesome, delicous yummm.....

'nuff said. Exceptional place to dine on a Thursday "Island Night". Paid $45pp for suburb island food, fantastic live music by Rose and Tane, and a very polished island show to finish the night off.

We stayed at the resort for our honeymoon and loved our room. We paid extra for a private courtyard and we're very glad we did as the beach front rooms don't appear to have any privacy and were in the same area as the resort wedding so the noise would have kept you up. Overall we really enjoyed our stay... More
