Very bad customer service, the lodges are old, dirty and feel not very well maintained and smell weird. The best part is the beach nearby but at some point you have to go back with destroyes your overall experience and happiness on a great island. Such a shame that some people just try to get the last few dollar out... More

Perfect location, friendly staff, great villa, amazing holidays! Raina Laggon villas was just what we were looking for, a place right on the beach, close to everything, free transport and what a pleasent surprise to also get breakfast every morning. It's definetely great value for money and we will be very happy to go there again

We had a wonderful 5 days stay in the beachfront villa - The location, the views, beach, sea life, tranquility, were all top notch This trip was our first to RARO, we had fantastic weather all but a half day, so we did get lucky with that. Breakfast on the balcony or the beach, everyday, a simple splendor of local... More

Us and two other couples joined with honeymoon couple, staying in the four beachfront villas at Raina Lagoon. We have stayed there previously and loved the beachfront location snorkelling etc. and booked in the honeymoon couple along with our other friends. We all enjoyed our stay which is in a good location where we had access to a car rental... More

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.
