Spotless rooms. Unparalleled views of a dream lagoon. Amazing staff. The kind of place fellow travelers stop outside to ogle. And while it's technically at the heart of Raro's "tourist" beach, by contrast to Hawaii, Tahiti, even Samoa, it's EMPTY. Mid-season, midday on a Saturday, you can still be alone here...easily. Nick, Poko, et all made us feel at ease, at home and entirely relaxed. Breakfasts are simple - bread, fruits - but I was rarely craving a four egg omelette + hash browns at 8AM in the tropics. TV + internet seemed to work fine if you're dying to cruise TMZ on your vacation. Sails next door does a decent lunch and the corner market does a good plate lunch (but you should hit up the Windjammer for dinner). Kayaks, snorkeling gear on hand at little joint next door. Warm pool. Hot hot tub. I can wrack my brain and not find a complaint.
For whatever reason, Americans just don't go here (Kiwis - insert pithy comment here) but trust me fellow gringos, you should. We will go back to Raro and back to Te Vakaroa absolutely for sure...soon.
