We stayed here for 7 nights late August. We booked apartment 7, and while it didn't face the pool, it was only a few steps away, and was quiet and private.

Stayed in Coral Sands for business for three nights. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Nice swimming pool. Close to the beach, with a short walk to local arorangi bars and restaurants. Would definitely use them again next time I am up for work.

Kia Orana, and Meitaki for the kind review. We have done a fair amount of travelling ourselves and being stuck at an airport with only basic facilities overnight is no-one's idea of fun, and certainly not ideal for lasting good impressions of Rarotonga! Only happy to help, and hope to see you back some time in the future. More

Lovely comfortable beds. Lots of space in the three bedroom apartments. Wonderful to have free use of snorkelling gear. The pool was well maintained and so clear to swim in. Thank you Eve and Brent for your hospitality. Loved our 7 nights in Rarotonga.
