Great location. Beautiful resort. I think it has the nicest gardens on the island. Clean, comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Beautiful generous and fresh tropical breakfast. Convenient that the lagoon was so close by (just across the road). And maybe a 3 minute walk to a great snorkeling location. Yes, Fruits of Rarotonga/Muri beach have the nice sandy beach and it's about a 15 minute drive there; however, the snorkeling in the lagoon across from the resort was much better!
Vicki was very helpful, and had lots of recommendations of things to do, and we loved everything she had us do!
Yes, the roosters could be annoying at first, but I got used to them and never even noticed them after a few days. (It's the same pretty much all over the island).
Loved Coco and friends (the dog and 2 cats) who were very friendly.
Despite the rain the first couple of days, we had no real issues with mosquitoes - kept the door closed, and wore mosquito repellent in the evenings when out, but didn't find them any different than what I am used to at home. We didn't even use the mosquito coils that were provided.
We had a garden studio and it was clean and tidy and it was nice having a kitchenette for when we wanted a simple meal in. I found the rooms to be adequate, however I hear they will be upgraded in the near future so am anxious to see how they look the next time we visit.
Pool was refreshing. Lots of equipment available for use.
We would definitely stay here again!
