We enjoyed our 10 year Anniversary at The Navigator where we spent 10 nights in this amazing home. We stayed there from Feb 23, 2009 to March 5th, 2009. John and Joy are extremely nice and accomodating. The home was very well taken care of and the pool was absolutely beautiful and refreshing. The house is very large and has all the amenities you need.
We are frequent travellers and found Rarotonga to be the safest and friendliest city that we have ever visited. We rented bicycles and rode around the island almost everyday. What an amazing way to see everything and stop frequently. Take the inside road for great views and a real taste of the countryside. We also highly recommend doing the cross island trek, it's challenging so you want to make sure you're in good shape with strong knees for the steep incline/decline. The view of the "Needle" and the entire island from the top of the trek is spectacular.
We found the food gourmet and our favorite restaurant was The Tamarind House. Great snorkeling infront of The Rarotongan Hotel but the absolute best snorkelling is on Aitutaki. That was the highlight of our trip!
