“Friendly staff and Delicious Food”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

Stayed at the hotel and had lunch and dinner here a couple of times and was never dissapointed. There are lots of theme nights which made it more fun. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

“Never ate any where else”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

Looked like it would be very expensive, but main dishes were all generous enough to share (as long as both like the same food). Most dinners were very good. Special on Thursday night of Mahi Mahi was superb. Would skip "Pig&Prawn" unless they offer a combo. Too many ribs (though good) to add prawns separately. Half of each would have been appreciated. Breakfasts varied daily, and we're all excellent (loved the pawpaw muffins).

“Very, very nice”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

It is sometimes a struggle to find somewhere nice to eat lunch in Rarotonga so we were pleased when our little scooter directed us to Silver Sands! The service was fantastic from a very, very nice Fijian waiter and the food was very good. I had the beef burger which had the most devine red onion relish, and hubbie had the club sandwiches and wedges. Nice setting with beach on one side of the restaurant and the pool area on the other (nice to note that the hotel is only for 18 years and older too!). Would recommend and wished we had been able to try the dinner here as well.

“lovely evening, great service...”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

we had dinner on a quiet weekday evening with family & friends, there were 8 in our group visiting from Aust/NZ and one local, our good friend Apai... the service was efficient and very friendly and the food was served beautifully... wine was a little bit pricey but we were on holiday and having such a good time - we decided to make the most of it and had a fantastic night!..
