“Simply beautiful”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

We have stayed here twice, once in 2006 and once in 2014. Both times have been simply amazing....We will never forget the first night when we walked down the path from our room, to the beach, and saw the most amazing array of stars and night skies imaginable. As there are no high rise buildings or massive light sources around the island, the stars here are so impressive and an experience you will not forget. We loved our room, and the way they have furnished it. We enjoyed the walk to breakfast each morning, the beach area, and the barefoot bar by the waters edge....The pool is small, but the water is lovely and warm. During our stay, we had a dance night where locals performed for us with their amazing dance and high energy music. Every minute here was enjoyable. The staff were so friendly and helpful...Kia Orana everybody........

Room Tip: You can hire motor bikes and scooters from the office. Try to get there when the local dance show i...

My husband and 3 other adult family members enjoyed 9 days of relaxation in a premium 2 bedroom villa. Fantastic!!! The location is idyllic with picture perfect views of the lagoon and tropical gardens. Rooms and gardens all very well maintained with excellent facillities within the resort. Barefoot Bar was ideal for that relaxed, beach holiday with a range of delicious cocktails and snacks. (Literally at the waters edge)
All staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. We will definitely stay at the Pacific Resort again when we return to Rarotonga.

We absolutely loved the Pacific Resort. The 2 villas for 9 of us were perfect, well appointed with everything you needed. Location excellent, Muri Beach definitely the best especially with a toddler. Restaurant beautiful ~ on the sand right beside the water. A great family holiday, totally recommend it.

Fantastic rooms with all amenities. We stayed in a premium garden suite which was really lovely but door window overlooked a car park so try and avoid rooms 5-10.
The good here is really great. I had the squid for lunch accompanied by a frozen margarita and would have it over and over again.
Make sure you snap up one of the beautiful blue bean bags for sunbathing I the beach. Disappointed I had to pay for paddle boarding as all other resorts normally offer this for free.

I went to the Pacific Resort Rarotonga with my family, my wife and 2 kids, (a 22 mths and a 4yrs old) the place is lovely, the staff is very welcoming and makes you feel like you are at home, also the management is always there to help you if needed!
Rarotonga itself is a little expensive, especially if you want to buy some groceries, but I guess you can bring some from home....local customs is quite relaxed and looks after the tourists.
Kids had a ball running around and swimming all day in a very safe lagoon, my wife and I relaxed...while kids were asleep and enjoyed the resort facilities and the nice cocktails from the barefoot bar.
If you decide to go, you won't be disappointed!!!

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the beach are quiete

My three sisters and I seldom get together (let alone sans husbands/partners and sans kids). We were celebrating a 50th and all four of us needed to relax, laugh and have a week of no worries.

We booked into Villa 200 and have nothing but compliments for the Pacific Resort at Muri beach. Their bus met us at the airport,and whisked us to our "best ever" holiday. The Pacific Resort includes multiple free daily activities. My favourite was the 9am nature walk up the side of the volcano (but we all enjoyed the free canoes to use in the lagoon). Waded over to a tropical island at low tide three times using their free beach shoes (two of us forgot to bring them).

Private sun loungers at the door of our villa. Plus loungers for guests on the beach and at their pool. The water is so clear that it makes their lagoon snorkelling cruise very worthwhile. Can also get your nails done for half of what it costs at home. And they will book you in to any outside event that you want to attend. (It is easy enough to wander along the road and check out other places). They will set you up with internet for much less than roaming prices.

Their cocktail hour menu is extensive (compared with their local competitors) with 7-8 options for $12 plus non alcoholic options for less.

BBQ served on the beach our first evening. Huge local Yellowfin Tuna steak, Yum.

Complimentary breakfasts at the Sandals restaurant served exotic local fruit...we argued whether the passionfruit or the dragonfruit was the best.

We enjoyed the free live music at the Sandals restaurant and their food was good too.

Staff smiles, attitude and helpfulness were tops.

Congratulations Pacific Resort for smoothly moving four busy sisters into "Island Time", making us laugh and relax for a week. Our tans are being admired. We will return.

Room Tip: Check photos of reviewers for the view from the room....you will want to see the lagoon, it is beaut...

We went for Easter with our 9 year old son. When we got home we asked him what the best part of the holiday was and he answered "the Kids Club at Pacific Resort"! It was great, and the people running the hotel were happy and friendly. Great time, highly recommended.
