My husband and I and our three kids (8,6,2) are planning our first trip to Rarotonga in the last 2 weeks of October this year. We would like to stay in one of the resorts with a kids club so that we can occasionally have a couple of hours to ourselves. It looks like our choices are The Edgewater, The Rarotongan or The Pacific Resort. We would love some advice on which one to choose in terms of price, location, facilities, swimming, proximity to other things. Should we stay at one for one week and another for the second week to experience different sides of the island? As a busy Mum I was looking forward to not having to worry about preparing meals but would love to hear about any awesome self-catering accommodation as well as we could also try that for one week and do the resort thing in the second week to keep the price down.
We can't wait to get there! Any other advice for first time visitors with young kids would be welcomed!
