Six of us recently spent a total of six days at the Pacific Resort...and we would unreservedly fully recommend it. Our greeting was very welcoming and our beach front rooms (101 & 102) were everything you could reasonably wish for in your hard earnt tropical holiday. The views of the lagoon were crazy! The food on offer was as good as anywhere else on the island - the burgers were a big hit and a favourite. Don't know about you but my holidays are partly measured by the quality of the mojitos!! I was full of expectation and might I say that Todd (bar man) makes some of the best mojitos not just anywhere in Rarotonga but anywhere in the Pacific...superb. The six of us hit the scooters and went exploring. After a few days it was evident that Pacific Resort was indeed the best resort on offer. Lots of other locations looked tired and/or their respective beaches were not overly conducive to jumping in and going for a swim...too many rocks and sharp coral. If staying at the Pacific Resort and you need supplies head out of the entrance turn left and travel about 300 meters. There you will find a little store on the left. 'Mr Woo' is your man, never short of a laugh and pretty good value...just remember you are in the islands! March is rainy season in Rarotonga and we 'suffered' no more than 25 minutes rain in total over the six days...not a problem let me assure you. Perhaps the only problem we encountered was the skinny dips at night in the lagoon. We found out that the coconut crabs enjoy coming out at night too...and will nip anything on offer...be warned!!!
Pacific Resort provided us with the awesome stay we were hoping for...when compared to other hotels we definitely had a great resort, great location, close to lots of restaurants and of course home to those mojitos!!

14 days at Pacific Resort on Muri Lagoon just wasn't enough! We had such a great time. Our Premium Garden Suite (which was lovely) was exactly as advertised, the location is absolutely beautiful and even the weather was great. The tropical breakfast every morning was so filling the only time we ate lunch the whole time we were there was when it was supplied on the day tours we did! Evening meals on the beach were a highlight altho perhaps a little pricier than similar meals at neighboring restaurants. The staff are amazing..nothing is too much trouble and they are so happy, efficient & friendly. My husband & I wish we were still there and can't wait to get back!

Room Tip: Rooms 1-4 are the most private of the Garden Suites(which we preferred), but if you really want Lagoon views pay the extra for the Beachfront suites

My husband I and are stay the Manava (sister hotel) but we used the Pacific Resort hotel every day for breakfast, sometimes lunch and dinner. Great atmosphere, location and food. There is an option for dining in the restaurant or pizza bar. We tried both and I highly recommend it. The pizza was full of flavour.
We loved the view from the hotel. Muri beach lagoon is terrific. We spent few hours sunbathing, drinking cocktails and eating the delicious island fries (cassava chips) and calamari.
Staffs were lovely and efficient.

Room Tip: Good choice of dining; Pizza Bar and/or Restarurant

We had a great time in Rarotonga, and a big part of this was because of the Pacific Resort. The hotel is at Muri Beach - an absolutely beautiful location on a sandy beach. The accomodation is not super luxurious, but is clean and comfortable - perfect for lazing around on the beach and in the lagoon for a relaxing holiday. Our room had picture postcard views of the lagoon which was only metres away. The food and bars were good, but there are also plenty of options around (walking distance) if you feel like a change. We had a look at some of the more boutique hotels but were always glad to return to the Pacific Resort where everyone (including the staff) seemed happy and relaxed and having a good time. Wish I was back there right now.....

Room Tip: Go for the beachside rooms with views you will remember forever.

We stopped in Cook Islands on the way back to Australia to visit family, and stayed 5 nights at Pacific Resort Rarotonga.
Firstly, location is amazing! Muri beach is beautiful, good snorkelling, spectacular kayaking and a really safe place for the kids to swim. We stayed in one of their villas where it was a straight walk of about 20 metres from our back door down to the beach. The decor is a little dated but that is my only minor negative, and really if you are worried about the decor in your accommodations, you are missing the point of a holiday in the Cook Islands. Breakfast on the beach was fantastic, delicious fresh tropical fruit and some tasty little doughnut-type-things. Our kids spent a couple of days with the Kids Club, the first time they had attended a program like that, and they really enjoyed the activities and were instantly comfortable with the relaxed and friendly nature of the 'beach hut boys'. We found all staff friendly and helpful, if somewhat relaxed, they were never following after you to see if you needed anything, but nothing was too much trouble if you asked them for it.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this resort to anyone looking for a great, relaxing family holiday. Our kids regularly ask to go back, and I am certain that we will be back there to visit again some time soon.
