In a nutshell; Club Raro is an excellent out of season choice if your budget is a little tight. I wouldn't dream of going during peak time and if I had the extra cash I'd go to Crown Beach resort or the Nautilus. Forget the Edgewater, it's a "pack em in and bleed them" resort; an opinion given by several... More

Poolside bar was a highlight as well as the extremely lovely staff. Food was delicious as well!! Probably a good resort to bring the family Rooms do need to be done up in some... More

Got deal on Grabe One. Room was clean, beach infront is bit too dagerous to swim in but there is a swimming pool which i enjoyed very much. It's located near to the town and airport. Most of all, lovely staff, very friendly and helpful. Especially Daniella, who was just wonderful!

The chef at this place is just great. The seafood chowder was amongst the best I've seen and all the dishes we had were of excellent quality. It's worth coming here just to eat! The hotel itself is fine, the room we had was clean, tidy and everything worked, including the AC. The breakfast was good, fresh fruit, cereals, juice,... More

We weren't to sure what to expect but luckily enough we enjoyed our stay at Club Raro. When we arrived we were told that our room had been up graded. We had the best pool and lagoon view and right oppossite the bar. The location was perfect! Price was affordable, staff were ok, drinks were delicious.

I got a deal to stay at Club Raro for 5 nights. The rooms were clean (and if you knew how to use the air conditioning)and cool.. Fairly basic but when you are in the islands you font want to spend all day in your room. The on site restaurant produced amazing food and the Club Raro Troppo cocktail definitely... More

We stayed at Club Raro for one week. We enjoyed that is was close to town and had comfy beds, but that is about it. We found the reception staff to be the major downfall (the cleaning staff were lovely and friendly). They all seemed to not want to be working at the resort and were very unhelpful. They did...

First time in Rarotonga. Got a deal from Grabone fro a 5 night stay with freebies :) We were picked up at the airports with garlands, and transported to the resort. Welcomed by Cheerful and pleasant reception staff. The rooms were good with all the amenities one would expect from a budget resort. We got the poolside room which had... More
