We stayed in the lagoon room and was nice and quiet with a good view. Was handy to town although we hired a scooter to get around. It was clean, tidy, functional and the staff were friendly. Could do with having some padding on the sun lounges :) Would be a great place to stay with a group of friends.... More

My husband and I stayed here recently for 10 nights on our first time to Rarotonga. The front entrance, foyer, reception desk and dining area are fairly basic could do with a little bit of modernising but I for a 3 star resort I would say it's average. Our room faced the garden not far from the pool area and... More
