We stayed at Crown Beach Resort for 6 nights with three other couples. We had breakfast there every morning and everybody agreed the eggs benedict was amazing - in fact after having that the first morning, one of our group had it for every single breakfast!! We had lunch there on our last day which was very good. We dined... More

We ordered seafood for both entree and main and were not disappointed. Was delicious, food was brought out in a timely manner. Staff were very friendly. Lovely music. Would eat here again if i found myself returning to Rarotonga.

Location OK but it is the hotel dining area so you mix in with the residents. The food was OK, not great but if you are looking for fine dining there are better alternatives.

We had several meals at Oceans - so I've combined them into one. Service was lovely, if occasionally a little bit "Would you like to order?" umm we've already ordered thanks. Here are a few of the dishes we ate and they were all exceptional; Pork Belly, Fish Risotto, Crème Brulee - lemongrass & ginger flavour, Vietnamese Prawn Spring Rolls,... More

I very seldom write really negative reviews, but Oceans was such a disappointment I feeI this time it is warranted. We arrived at 5.20pm for happy hour, waited until 5.45 for our drink and snack order to be taken, 45 mins later our drinks finally arrived with a promise of our snacks to follow. At 7pm we gave up on... More

We had breakfast,lunch and dinner at this fabulous resort. The smorgasbords were excellent. We were hooked on the cocktails, especially the blue stinger and the pina coladas. Every meal was very tasty, good selection.

Awesome place to have breakfast and the dinner and show package is certainly a must on your trip. We stayed at the resort and the staff all know you by name and are so helpful. The cocktail hour is not to be missed. Watching the sunset on the beach drinking cocktails-then slowly make your way over to the dinning area.... More
