We spent 6 nights in an Absolute Beach Villa. As others have said, the location is fantastic. Great beach for swimming and snorkelling right there. Unfortunately, we found the villas themselves to be overpriced and the management to be a little lax. We had to ask for enough towels for everyone, scrounge around for a coffee pot and other kitchen equipment. The screen door didn't close properly, the air conditioner was broken and the fans were inadequate. The phones in the rooms have been disconnected, so you have to rely on Melania to make all your arrangements when she shows up once a day. We stayed there 6 nights and our linens were changed on day 5?? The garbage from all the villas was piling up in the middle of the property and no one seemed to care to deal with it.
We really enjoyed our time on the Cook Islands but felt that things were not quite up to snuff at this place. It's too bad as it could be fantastic with a bit more effort.
