Having spent the night in the sister resort in Raratonga this resort was just stunning; from the view from the plane coming in to the two rooms we had. The villa was large and spacious with separate bed and lounge area and several balconies to sit on and direct access via stairs to the beach. However ours (no 300) didn't get much sun throughout the day. We also had a beachfront bungalow no 112 which was direct onto the beach infront of the others and 10m walk to the sea. We spent most of our day on this balcony! Mossies are a pain and the hotel fogs and provides DEET. Yes there are plenty of sea cucumbers but wear the reef shoes available from the bar and forget them. The lagoon is shallow and the coral reef provides plenty of fish life to see. Having been, the beachfront bungalow is all you need. Restuarant and local night are reasonable value but the whole resort isn't cheap, but what a beautiful setting. The view of the reef lagoon is enough to set you up for the day and makes the bill that much more palateable.
Definitely do the Kia orana cruise ;small boat 10 people max, for a stunning day out. There are also a few shops 10 mins walk away for convienence stuff.
On a general downside note the local sight of family graves infront of the houses is somewhat unnerving and if this practice continues the island will resemble an extended graveyard in a few generations time.
