We were there in late August and can endorse everything people have said about the place, despite the weather being pretty disappointing eg we never saw once of the infamous sunsets that everyone talks about. We would go back in a shot and wouldn't bother with Rarotonga at all, especially if you are after somewhere where you can really unwind and relax. Just a point though - we thought from photos that you could swim off the beach but it isnt really possible. Its just too shallow most of the time, there's lots of coral This doesn't seem to be something that anyone brings to your attention (however, there is a lovely smallish pool on site though and you can do some snorkelling off the beach). If you are really keen on swimming in the sea (like us) you can make the effort to walk up the beach a few hundred metres to a spot where the lagoon has been dug out especially for swimming. We also took a scooter round to Sammys where there is nice swimming.
