We, a family of three, will be visiting Rarotonga this summer. We need budget accommodations for six nights when we first arrive. Then we will go to Akituiti (sp) for five nights (I reserved the Paradise Cove Lodge). After that, we will have two more nights on Rarotonga before we fly home to USA. We like smaller lodges with great people, scenery and safety and, most importantly, we have a budget of $100 usd a night for this trip. Muri Beach looks beautiful. Is there anywhere is this area that would meet our criteria? Should we stay on that side of the island for six nights and then up by the airport for the last two nights? Suggestions wanted please :) We'll probably take the buss around the island--unless this isn't recommended. THANKS so much for ALL recs!!!
