“A Little Paradise in the Sun”
Reviewed June 13, 2013 for a stay in May 2013
people found this review helpful

If you are planning a trip to Rarotonga look no further than the Coral Sands. We stayed here for just under 4 weeks in May/June 2013 and we were so glad we chose the Coral Sands over the many other properties we had looked at. Myself and my fiancé have travelled extensively and have stayed in many 4 and 5 star accommodations and the standard at the Coral Sands is well up there. Everything necessary is provided for self catering including an unexpected welcome breakfast pack including local seasonal fruit. The accommodation is perfectly clean, both towels and bedding changed regularly. The BBQ on premises is excellent for cooking, especially the local fish. In addition to the modern well furnished apartments the location is excellent, steps away from the beach where you are guaranteed a beautiful sunset every evening. There is free use of kayaks and snorkelling equipment so no need to bring your own. Five minutes walk away there is a very reasonably priced scooter/car rental shop.(Scooter is the way to go in Raro)
Bob and Karen were amazing hosts and went out of their way to help and give advice. Late pick up and drop off was a super service and very much appreciated. When we go back to Raro we will definitely stay here again and we will highly recommend this little paradise to all our friends and family.
