Paradise Inn is small but in a perfect location. You are able to walk to town and the rooms that have lofts make the rooms feel more spacious. We arrived the first day and saw whales from the patio! Then we were escorted to our room without having to do all the usual check in right away so you could...

We stayed at Paradise Inn for just one night before leaving for Aitutaki. The place is quite nice and rooms are comfortable (even if not spectacular and with some room for improvement) and the staff is friendly. The hotel is on the sea but not the best you can get in Rarotonga. Being very close to the airport, this place...

Recommend Paradise Inn. Clean apartments serviced daily. Some in need of restoration however comfortable, beach front accommodation within easy walk to main town, shops, restaurants, markets, etc. A huge common room and deck area make your stay more comfortable with full bar (on an honour system) for your convenience. Highly recommended for group bookings. Staff and management are extemely welcoming...

My husband and I stayed here for a night on our way to Aitutaki and on the way back from it. We chose it because it was a good price, and close to town with good reviews. We wanted to be able to go to the grocery store and make our own food. The owner is such a friendly and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Paradise Inn, Rarotonga is the perfect place for travelers looking for value for money. We have 16 serviced units nestled in a peaceful location between the mountains and the sea, yet only a few minutes walk to downtown Avarua. The terrace, bar and lounge have breathtaking lagoon and ocean views and are yours for relaxing, whale watching, meeting people or enjoying a meal al fresco. A beach before the reef offers our visitors the prospect of sunbathing, a stroll along the beach, low tide reef walking and spotting starfish, coral and the small colourful reef fish that populate the lagoon. As the sun sets, enjoy a sundowner on the terrace with a drink from the last "Honesty Bar" in the South Pacific where cocktails and tall tales are the order of the evening. ... more   less
