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. Staff were extremely polite and helpful. Total value for money and is definitely on the plan to go back. A little gem tucked behind a... More

I spent 4 nights at Crown Beach in November ’14 in the beautiful courtyard pools villa which includes a lovely outdoor plunge pool. I work in the travel industry and had a chance to see a lot of the other properties in the Cooks. There are few room categories on Rarotonga that offer the privacy of the courtyard villas: with...

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

Three years ago we stayed at the Crown Beach and loved it. Second time around did not disappoint. Staff friendly, helpful and accommodating - from the minute you arrive to the day you leave.

We were staying at Crown Beach to celebrate a special wedding anniversary. Maybe we were looking forward to it too much but it did not meet our expectations, What we were wanting was privacy with peace and quiet to enjoy each others company. We paid a conciderable sum for beach front unit, but this gave us no privacy. All throughout... More

After spending a blissful week at the Crown Beach Resort on honeymoon with my wife, we agree that we are forever ruined for all other resorts! Our poolside bungalow with a private pool and walled courtyard was like our own little private paradise. The resort was beautiful and well maintain and the bungalow itself was spacious, clean, and tastefully decorated.... More

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...
