“Wow!!! Cook Islands!”
Reviewed November 20, 2013 via mobile

Since we relocated to NZ last year we'd dreamed of visiting the Cook Islands! It was amazing, when we came into landing and could see quite clearly the lagoon surrounding the island, to be greated by our driver with a garland of local flowers! Some may say a bit cliched but it was very enjoyable!
We were accorded by the Lagoon Breeze villas 2 days free moped rental! It was well worth it and enabled us to mooch around the island under our own steam!
The accommodation and staff were welcoming and really lovely!
We especially enjoyed the company of the many on site pets! Coco stole our hearts! X
With the price of our holiday we received breakfast which consisted of tropical fruit, cereal, toast....yummy very delish!
I would love to return ;)

We are so happy to hear your dream came true, by visiting our beautiful Rarotonga. It is definitely the Cook Island way, to make all family and friends feel welcome on arrival to their island. We also agree that it is a wonderful experience if you can hire a car or scooter and really be independent. The staff, Coco and pets (we have a new kitten called Gi Gi who has joined the family) look orward to your return in the future.
Kind regards, Debbie

Stayed at the Lagoon Breeze for 42 nights in September/October and enjoyed it. It was close to the dive centre where I was completing a DM course. Room was a studio room close to the pool. Room was comfortable and the staff were always more than happy to help put. Requested breakfasts to be made up the previous day and thus was not a problem. Cocktail hour was also a great way to wind down and relax. Vicki and her staff were brilliant.

This has been our 2nd stay at the Lagoon Breeze Villas. From our first trip since Debbie and Garth took ownership we have watched a total transformation to this property. We want to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to the Team (Vicki the best Manageress you can find on the Island.

Ivy with her vision of a perfect garden, Ivy has created a vision of colour and beauty. Papa Nga, Mama Pu, Vi and the rest of the Team gave us service that was amazing, in the Breakfast room.

As for Vicki, she provided the best service and friendship that we can explain. This takes into account many countries we have both traveled to around the globe. From booking in, to booking a car, arranging items in our rooms for our arrival, nothing was a problem. We cannot speak highly enough of the Lagoon Breeze Villas as a place to relax, enjoy and be cared for totally in Rarotonga.

PS - ask about about our artistic contribution to our room and the office, inspired by this resort.

Sincerer thanks from Andrew, Debs, Shirley and Lesley.

Room Tip: The 2 bedrooms have Lots of room, and if you cannot relax we suggest that you choose another holiday...

Thanks to our wonderful returnees, who not only came back for their second stay but also brought friends with them. Garth and I appreciate your comments about the transformation to the property and that you enjoyed making the most of them.
Our staff also say thank you for mentioning them and we too are very proud of them.
Your artistic skills were definitely on display and we wonder how you are going to top them next time you return to Lagoon Breeze Villas.
Until next time.

Once again, thank you to Vicki and all the staff at Lagoon Breeze Villas. Nothing was ever a problem for any of the staff members. Our accommodation was better than we could have hoped for - clean, over the road from the beach and to see the waves from our verandah and hear them from our upstairs bedroom was just perfect! Thank you to our fellow travellers at the Villas for the catch ups at the wonderful included Continental breakfast and the "Happy Hour". Special mention must go to the "First 15" group from Mount Albert Grammar who were always well mannered, polite and a pleasure to have around.

Thank you for your kind reveiw of Lagoon Breeze Villas, it is always so nice to hear that our staff make a difference. We are also thrilled that you enjoyed the facilities and make friends at breakfast and Happy Hour. We have many guests return at the same time as friends they met the year before. The Mt Albert Grammar boys were certainly well behaved and a credit to their teachers and school. We hope you return to meet up with new friends again in the future.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights at the Lagoon Breeze Villas. The reception staff were always friendly, reliable and efficient. The Happy Hour was popular and a great chance to relax with a Cocktail ("Love me Tender" is a must try!) and catch up with other guests to share experiences of their day. The room was clean and roomy. Easy walk to other nearly restaurants for an evening meal or simply catch the bus just outside the gates. Could easily have stayed longer.

We thank you for taking the time to review Lagoon Breeze Villas and we are thrilled you enjoyed the facilities we provide. Thank you also for mentiioning the restaurants near by, as we always say "Rarotonga is small enough and easy to get around, that the whole island is your resort". Whether you hire a car or just catch the bus, there are so many experiences for you to enjoy. The staff tell me that the "Love Me Tender" cocktail is very popular, we are pleased you enjoyed it. We look forward to having you stay again in the future.
Kind regards, Debbie

Fantastic place to stay it is the best in Rarotonga. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very clean and Vicki was brilliant and very helpful. We stayed 14 days and wanted more. The day trip to Aitutaki is well worth the money - fantastic couldn't top it. Breakfast was great to get together with other guests to chat where they had been and what you were doing for the day. Thoroughly recommend this place - great place to chill out.

Thank you for your recent review. We too believe Lagoon Breeze Villas is a special place and we thank you for taking the time to share your comments. It is nice when staying in one place for 14 days to get together with other guests from time to time and to take the opportunity of exploring some of our outer islands. The day trip to Aitutaki is an affordable option and as you say well worth the effort. We look forward to meeting you the next time you come to Rarotonga.

Weve just come back from a week spent at Lagoon Breeze and it was great. We loved everything about it. We travelled with our 19 month old son and it was really kid friendly and we felt like we didnt have to worry about him at all. We could open our doors and he could run from our villa up to the kids play area (we could still see him of course) and it was great.

I loved that most of the other people staying there were either families or older people, so you didnt have to worry about any excess noise at night and to me the resort had a really safe feeling about it, like you didnt have to worry to much if you left your doors unlocked or anything like that.

The rooms were clean and tidy and the grounds beautiful. The beach across the road as well was awesome, loved the pure white sand and great snorkelling.

Just wanted to make special mention of Tui who looked after our son one night and also the lady who cleaned our room every day and was so patient with him while he 'helped' her.

Also to Vicki, the office manager, we had a problem with a restaurant one night, that was no-ones fault except the patrons of the restaurant, and when Vicki heard about this, she went above and beyond what we expected and made it right for us, which just showed us how important it was to her that we were happy which is a really lovely thing.

And finally, Im not much of a dog person, but if I could clone Coco I would, she was so great with our son as well, we loved all the different animals around there, but especially Coco.

We are definitely going to come back to Rarotonga and we will be looking to stay at Lagoon Breeze again.

Thank you for your glowing review of your stay with us at Lagoon Breeze Villas. Garth and I are especially thrilled to hear you felt comfortable and safe and that you found our staff helpful and friendly. We all try hard to give our guests a home away from home experience that they will remember. I am sorry that Garth and I were off the island during your stay and therefore were not able to catch up with you at breakfast, however we do hope to see you again at Lagoon Breeze Villas in the near future.
Kind regards, Debbie
