I booked Raina prioor to reading the reviews so admittedly was a little nervous following the rough comments from previous guests. All i have to say is that, their expectations were too high. Having not been to Rarotonga previously, i wasn;t sure what to expect, and when our transfer pulled into the driveway my heart sank a little. However that's... More

July 2014 - Don't read the other reviews! Obviously they were spending too much time in the villas than exploring the ocean, meeting the locals, safariing around the island. This is paradise and your spoiled for places to relax, not under a coconut tree guys be smart where you put yourself! Don't park your rental car under a coconut tree... More

We should have realised all was not well at Raina when we saw the 2011 New Zealand Calender still hanging on the wall displaying the month of December. It was after all Sept 2012. Part of the Raina promotion includes: “Please note no children under 12 years of age are accepted”. And “Delux Beachfront Bungalows”. For these features it is... More

We’ve just returned from our 6th visit to Rarotonga, staying in a Beachfront Villa at Raina Lagoon Villas. We brought up the less than glowing reviews we had read on Trip Advisor with management before we went and were given assurances that all was well, so now that we’ve had the experience, we’d like to offer our thoughts on the...

After reading the negative reviews or Raina Villas I would just like to comment on our experience. We visited in September 2011 and were in a beach front villa. The beach and view from the veranda is paradise. The outside garden shower was beautiful. It was great to have the full kitchen which we made great use of. The villa... More

like many other people we saw the photos and went ahead and booked our special holiday for our wedding anniversary. My worries started at the airport when there was no free shuttle organised for us. The lady at Raro Tours was great & she soon delivered us to Raina. My heart sank as drove up to the less than inviting... More

It seems nothing has been done to improve the faults in the rooms. At this moment, the villas are overpriced. We had the same negative experiences as some other guests who had stayed here. Would recommend consider some other location. Get them fixed or they will rot in your hands!

My wife and I stayed here during the second week of our honeymoon on Rarotonga and we were pleasantly suprised. It wasn't the villa itself that was special but the quiet location, the view and the lack of a TV that really made this a special place. That might sound funny but it really was a week of rest for...

I had a deluxe beach front bungalow and it was so amazing. Stand up sitting at the balcony and had breakfast and beachview (white sandy beach I like it!!!) Tropical breakfast complimentary free. Very nice Rooms with outside shower, i love it. And they have all kitchenette. Very quiet and romantic hotel.

From the pics and their description we decided it was top quality. How wrong we were! I had to rehang curtains the first night so they would close, I repaired the sliding door lock, a lot of the louvre windows didn't close properly, the gas hob in the kitchen needed matches to start, the tongue and groove floors were harboring...
