They have lots of knowledge and know who to contact if you want to do something while on Raro (ask them the best place to snorkel on the island - they know).

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.
