Meh! I would look elsewhere...
Meh! Just average. We usually stay at the Rarotongan. This time we decided to try another place. It wasn't as nice as the Rarotongan and it was about the same price. The diving offshore wasn't even close to as nice as the Rarotongan. The pool was tiny and overrun by kids when we were there. The whole place was very dated. The best thing was the Italian restaurant within walking distance from the hotel.

Living on the Edge
We only stayed for the night...literally... We arrived at 2am to a warm evening as any other guest would... Room was very tidy and ready waiting for us to have our nights sleep before moving to another resort... For what we paid for our room we couldnt be happier... It served it purpose and we could have easily stayed the length of our stay in that room... The resort its self was very busy at breakfast time... Staff very helpful... Couldnt have asked for a better nights stay... Thanks Edgewater
