We have been to Rarotonga 12 times so I guess we have a reasonable background to judge. We stayed here two years ago when the property was under different owners and I am glad to say that the new owners, Steve and Geraldine have kept the best of the old and have started to make sympathetic improvements. The staff are... More

What can you say other than the staff and setting are great; away from Muri beach tourist centre but a short drive which was easily arranged with help from Steve and Geraldine. It was our first trip to Rarotonga and to Aro'a Beachside Inn - we enjoyed it so much we have immediately booked for Xmas. Snorkelling out front is... More

We were delighted with our stay at Aroa Beachside Inn. The staff were welcoming, helpful and lots of fun and the accommodation was superb. We had a deluxe unit with a seaview and the beach was right on the door step. Unlike other resorts, Aroa had its own lawn and gardens leading down to the beach and having the Shipwreck... More

Have been staying here frequently for the best part of 8 years and wouldn't want anywhere else. Great Crew who go out of there way to make life easy. Where else can you finish your day with a million dollar view whilst enjoying a cold drink and watching one of the best sunsets in the Pacific.

My daughter wanted someplace to totally relax. I wanted to watch the sun set over the water, a relaxed atmosphere and bar meals if we didn't feel like cooking. We got all this and more. The owners and staff are so friendly, welcoming and accommodating and made us feel part of the family. To sit and eat breakfast with your... More

Aroa Beachside Inn is one of those places that is a jewel Cook Islands. A small resort with a beautiful outlook, one of the best beachside bars in the world. A place where you can relax and feel like you're home and the hosts Steven and Geraldine are amongst the most friendliest I've ever come across in the world.
