Arrived at 11pm, reception was very efficient and gave directions to our room an a resort map...trouble was it was dark and quite a large resort...eventually found our room, the room was tidy but quite small, the tiled shower floor was quite dirty in the corners, had air conditioning but was very noisy. Resort package included tropical breakfast (usual in Raro) was ok and also offered cooked menu at extra cost. The resort offered various activities some however most seemed to be cancelled, some due to king tides which could not be helped but others due to lack of numbers...every other resort I have stayed at have held these even with very little uptake. My package also included a car use for 1 day, our car was booked but when we went to collect it, it was not available as someone else had it, re docked for the following day....same story, eventually we were given most of a car later that day...no drivers window..meant we could not park securely or keep dry. Now the good bits, Rarotonga is an amazing place and the Rarotongan has some of the best beach and snorkelling on the island, the staff as all the island people were lovely, friendly and very apologetic for the lack of activities. Captain Andy's bar has a great selection of cocktails and bar snacks, great bar staff (although to few on duty for happy hour) would I stay there again, I have stayed in better places on Rarotonga for less money, so no I would not. However would defiantly go back to Rarotonga, a great place for a beach break.
