My husband and I stayed 7 nights for our honeymoon. What an amazing time we had. From the moment we got off the bus from the airport, we were greeted with smiles that never faded, the staff were all so lovely and helpful. The Resort gardens are maintained beautifully. The villa was perfect, and the daily turn down service is... More

We stayed in the Courtyard Pool Suite which was amazing. You have your own private pool that lights up beautifully in the evening. Very clean and efficient housekeeping. We had our own microwave and fridge which was helpful and we took our own snacks. They are very accommodating as we didn't have a wine opener and they got one for... More

As our first time visiting Rarotonga, we cannot be happier with our choice of stay. Room: The room is big and spacious with a fully equipped kitchen. The furnitures and bathroom were a little run down, but nothing major to highlight. They also offered a turn down service each night which was lovely. Facilities: Pool was a let down. It... More

We just got back on Monday from 5 nights in a Courtyard Pool Villa. It was absolutely gorgeous, clean, tidy, well maintained and extremely private.

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...
