This was our 3rd trip to the island of Rarotonga. Enjoy it so much so have gone back every couple of years. This was our first time to stay at this resort. I don't think that it was value for money for the high room rate we paid. Staff very friendly but oh so casual. Had to regularly sit at breakfast where tables hadn't been cleared and had to ask for them to be cleared. You never knew what time of the day or evening your room was to be serviced. One time we actually left to meet for friends for dinner at 7.30 and it still hadn't been done. Although on our return it had been serviced. Had to ask for the uht milk to our fridge as it hadn't been stocked. Had to ask for a loo roll one time. I just think when you are paying high dollars you expect a little service. There never seemed to be anyone around that looked official or managerial or overseeing things. Would choose other properties over this one next time. Sorry Sanctuary Rarotongan but have to be truthful.
