Really lovely private villa right on the most beautiful exotic beach, it comfortably accommodates 3 couples. The kayaking, snorkeling & walking are perfect. Cars are easy to hire and the island lovely to explore. There are some restaurants nearby but we had lots of barbecues and lovely fresh fruit & vegetables from the stalls on the roadside and fresh fish... More

We had the most incredible two weeks staying at the Sands Villas. My family rented all three villas and loved each one for different reasons. All of the villas were well stocked with everything you might need, well laid out for each families needs and clean. The location of these villas has to be rated as "the best"! Walk off... More

Lovely villas with everything you need. Best holiday accommodation I've ever had. It was the perfect get away with some girlfriends. Big open spaces to hang out in and sunbath. Great decks for socialising and having drinks. The beach was very quiet and well keep, much more so than Muri. Nothing is far away on the island so its definitely... More

Great facility in a wonderful location. We had a fabulous stay here and would definitely return. The service from management was excellent. The rental car was available for pick up at the airport and the staff were friendly and courteous. Although we had to leave at midnight to catch our flight, there was still a staff member on hand to... More

This was just the perfect place to stay in Raratonga. Owners were very helpful. Facilities great and location was perfect. Snorkeling was very good. We had three couples and there was plenty of room. Deck was very large and wonderful for evening meals. Would totally recommend this villa.

We had a brilliant time staying at Sands Villas for a week in a wedding party. The villas themselves are well designed; it's easy to find privacy, and the decks and lounges are great for socialising. The beach is great, unspoilt and quiet compared to Muri (though only 5 minutes drive from the cafes round there) and the snorkelling seemed... More

We had an amazing week here with friends, occupying all three of the villas and we had our own little bit of paradise. The beach is beautiful and pretty much all ours for the week. Great for enjoying the warm water of the lagoon and exploring with kayaks that were made available for all. Great deck, with a nice bit... More

This is just the perfect getaway - family, romance, you could do it all here. The wedding party I stayed with all enjoyed themselves, often until the early hours as it's so easy to socialise between villas. The location and view speak for themselves. Spectacular.

Everything we needed for our stay, at our fingertips. We booked all three houses for the bridal party and family, which worked out great. It was so good I've sent one of my presenters from work there with her family. I can't wait to head back! :)
