My partner & I found an internet deal so we got a good price of AUD $705 for 6 nights in Lagoon Front room. Which in cook islands was great value. For that price we are giving it 4 stars. View from Lagoon Front room and tables & chairs out the front was awesome . We hired a scooter and enjoyed being pretty close to town. Only downside is it can be rough water at the front of the resort,and is rocky, but with a scooter you can enjoy going to Muri and other great spots to swim and snorkel. Not sure about the standard rooms which look at the pool, so can't really comment on them. Staff were helpful and cleaners lovely. We hired the scooter from Club Raro which was really convenient. As we looked around the island at the other places we considered to stay we were really happy with our decision. Furniture and decor a little bit tired but still clean and when you see how expensive the furniture over there is to buy its seems fair enough to use it as long as possible.
Thanks Club Raro for a great trip!
