Jacqui and I took the kids (4) and a great friend to Rarotonga to help us celebrate 25 years of marriage. We needed somewhere big but not just an old house and also wanted it as close to the beach as possible.
Sands Villas was perfect! We spent two weeks there and used two of the three Villas and both were ideal. No one wanted to leave.
The servicing of the rooms was great and the staff were lovely. The cooking facilities were great so we tended to eat out one night and eat in the next which helped the budget.
One of the best things was that it was some way from the road so the only sounds we heard were the waves in the distance as they hit the reef at the edge of the lagoon.
Totally recommend Sands Villas to anyone with a larger group. Actually recommend it to even couples as really lovely.
