Convenient, clean, safe, budget friendly.
Raro resort offered simple layed back nothing fancy accommodations...operated by the locals keeping to an island feel. Resort has a pool with swim up bar, continental or full cooked breakfast (additional cost) beach access but it's sort of rocky so no lounging by the water, however you can swim and snorkel in the waters at the resort..When I travel away from the states I want to experience what the locals experience - eat local food, drink local beer (Matutu)! So if you are into the upper crust type of accommodations this is not the place for you.

Great time in Raro
It was great, the staff were awesome and so friendly. There were 14 of us that stayed there which we had 5 rooms and three different types i.e. standard, lagoon, and self contained units. I found the prices we paid varied a lot, even if we got the same type of room and some only paid $80 for early check-in/out where as some us had to pay a whole extra day/night, so always good to shop around. Good central location as only took 20-30-mins to walk to town, and close to one of the 2 24hour dairy on the island

Could be better
this could be a lovely resort if some money was spent on it. The plastic chairs and loungers are very old and dirty. there are no cushions for the lounge chairs. The lagoon rooms are very nice but there is a problem with ants, however the rooms were always very well cleaned. The standard rooms really need upgrading. The breakfast was very repetitive and simple. the swimming pool is very small and very close to the poolside rooms which could be a problem with the noise.
