“Simple, but clean and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2011

Lagoon Lodges is a good choice if you don't want to stay at an expensive resort. The rooms are spacious and clean and the grounds and pool are nice. The best aspect is the excellent service from the staff. We had a sick child and they immediately arranged an appoitment with a doctor in the town. They also gave us extra sheets and towels for our child. Breakfast is basic, but more than adequate. Location good with a nice sany beach and snorkelling right across the road. The staff arrnaged a rental car for us easily. Only downside is the noisy roosters!

If you prefer not to be in a resort, in a peaceful setting then Lagoon lodges is ideal. The units are large, well appointed with a full kitchen, good air conditioning and clean. The individual bungalows are private with great deck space and set in a lovely garden with the beach across the road. The pool is lovely because it uses filtered not clorinated water. Free snorkling gear (great snorkling) and kayaks and friendly service from the staff. We had a free daily tropical breakfast, which was adequate - in a lovely setting. One disadvantage was lack of meals on site if you want to eat out (only Sunday available) and it is not so well situated for shops and restaurants as say Muri Beach, and there were some closures because March is the off season, but the mini golf club nearby has great food and lovely people or The Rarotongan resort is another close option. There is a bus stop outside and a car/scooter rental just down the road. Highly recommended.

Lagoon Lodges is well appointed, beach across the road, service was just fantastic. Breakfast (continental provided). Bungalows are self contained. Very spacious with large undercover deck. Swimming pool, Bar. Well Tui makes the best cocktails ever. Cocktail hour is 4.30pm to 6pm. On our last day it was actually until we finished. Price was around $10 for 2 cocktails. Vicki (manager ) was really helpful. Staff friendly. Couldn't do enough for us.

The grounds are lovely and the snorkeling in good right across the street. The people who work here are wonderful. They go out of their way to make sure you have a great vacation. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Rarotonga. If you're there on a Sunday, don't miss the church service at the CICC Church in Arorangi. The singing is wonderful and they serve great refreshments after the service. The local bus is great for getting around, if you don't want to rent a car.

If you are wanting to stay at a luxurious establishment with the best facilities, Lagoon lodges is not for you. If you want a nice basic villa with a full kitchen, two bedrooms and beautiful gardens, Lagoon Lodges is your place. We had a two bedroom two level villa that we thought was great for us.

The villas are well equipped with a kitchen that has a full fridge, stove, oven and microwave. There is an open plan kitchen, sitting room and dining room that was small but served it's purpose well. Each bedroom has a small en-suite, fan and air conditioner. The upstairs bedroom comprises of one double bed that can be singles, while the downstairs one can spaciously fit 3 singles, great for a family of five. The tropical breakfast was good but nothing too special, cereals, juice, tea and coffee and a selection of fruits. Staff were very friendly and willing to point out which attractions were best to explore. Roosters were not too much of a hassle, there were lovely dogs who were here with us every day and took came with us on walks.

Overall, I really enjoyed my stay at lagoon lodges and would like to come back again one day in the not too distant future.

Exactly as above let the pictures do the talking. I wrote a indepth review but my browser lost it all when I tried to upload the photos. It's clean and tidy, not flash or amazing but still okay value and a nice inbetween from a resort to a private beach house. There is cheaper on the island, but I stil think this is good value for what it offers.

Be stayed here for 6 nights from 12 August 2010. At this time the property was patronized primarily by New Zealand pensioners and family groups. The accommodation was spacious and well equipped. Everything worked as it should.
The charming on site manager held a daily orientation meeting for new arrivals. she covered using the bus system, scooter and car hire, buying groceries, nearby places to eat, special events at sister resorts, booking tours etc. We warmly recommend this briefing session.
We loved the communal breakfast as it provided an opportunity for guest to mix and mingle and swap experiences. Food was well presented and adequate plus the staff were friendly and courteous.
The Sunday BBQ was excellent - salads and desserts were supplied by the sister resort , Manuia Beach Resort. We also enjoyed their Saturday Island Night - great food and entertainment.
