Great value with a nice island feel throughout.
Great value with a nice island feel throughout. The location is the best! Some of the best snorkeling right off the beach - and that say's a lot as many of the hotels say they have good snorkeling, but they really have just so-so snorkeling. This beach is a dedicated underwater preserve and the underwater views are spectacular! Some of the best right off the beach. The restaurant is decent. The free breakfast was a little skimpy. We were there last year and it had more variety and full-breakfast items. Now, it's more like a continental breakfast with juice and rolls. If you are without kids, definitely book next door at their adults only complex. It's much nicer and worth the extra money. Tip: Book online for the best rate. Sometimes you can upgrade your stay at the front desk at some hotels. Not here! They gouge you for upgrades here. The in room wifi sucks! FYI.

Take me back to The Rarotongan
Had a beautiful stay at The Rarotongan. Service was super efficient and always friendly. Location had amazing lagoon for swimming and snorkeling. Our room was comfortable and best we had on our stay there. Breakfast was overlooking lagoon with plenty of options. The decor of the whole place was very island themed. Cant wait to go back. Will definitely recommend.

Good overall
The beach here is the best on the island! Staff is friendly. Keep in mind that folks are on island time. You may have to wait for things like food or drinks. Breakfast is buffet with fruit, croissants, pancakes, and juice. Food is expensive on the island. Breakfast here is a plus! Hamburgers and fish/chips are delicious. They spray for mosquitos but, bring bug spray. Free use of kayaks and sun loungers. Wear beach shoes in the water due to coral. Not much night activity. Bed was a little thin. They have great guys outside to have meals. Overall good stay!
