My 65th Birthday treat! Our bungalow was just back from the beach, very comfortable and airy. Staff were absolutely lovely. We enjoyed the beach, driving around the Island on Scooters and just hanging out in the pool. My husband missed having a TV in the bedroom and only having 1 channel on TV - I read lots of books! I...

We had been travelling around Australia and New Zealand for 6 weeks living out of a suitcase. This was meant to be the romantic end to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. Sadly we had vllla 12 at the back of the restaurant. No view of the sea, no bath just a small shower with curtain. We certainly didn't want a... More

We stayed at the Crown Beach Resort on our honeymoon last year over the week between Christmas and New Year's Eve. The hotel it's self was a bit tired, but we chose the resort because each of the rooms was more or less a small bungalow. We loved having our own kitchenette and porch. We stayed in the villa in...

Don't get me wrong the facilities are top notch at this resort with the ground staff working all day to keep the place looking a million bucks. The food at the restaurant is terrific, the location to the beach is amazing, our room was nice though one of the older huts was very cosy. The staff in the restaurant/bar are... More

This is a fantastic Resort to relax and chill out. We stayed in a garden villa (Room 13) right by the Pool which we basically lived in! The room was spacious and clean, they made a very special touch every night by the staff by turning down the beds and leaving candles and lovely flowers. Service and staff all friendly... More

This is a great resort and Vini in the front reception is a wonderful happy help. If you arrive in the middle of the night flight, there is only security to meet you and they are not very friendly. Overall we had a lovely stay. The ladies running the restaurant and bar are very casual and slow, but I guess... More

So glad we picked this resort - very pleased with its fantastic location, small size and general friendly atmosphere. Excellent value and glad we were here instead of nearby Sunset as a couple. Would definitely go back as so easy to get to both Muri and Avarua.

We recently had the absolute pleasure of staying here. Great location, snorkeling straight off the beach. Beautiful accommodation and the delicious Oceans Restaurant. All this with wonderful staff, Mii, Shannon and Ana ( the "In-training waitress) at Oceans, plus Vini on reception.

Second time back at the Crown and we were not disappointed. Great surroundings, food, whales everyday for entertainment and friendly polite staff. Spa (which I went to twice) was relaxing and energizing if that makes sense. Brilliant service from all staff at the Crown.
