Manuia Beach Resort, Rarotonga
Very Good8.0
Great sunset views
This is a very nice hotel with excellent staff. The pool overlooking the ocean is beautiful. The lagoon is quite rocky and fairly shallow at low tide, good for snorkeling but not for swimming. The hotel provided a basic breakfast for free which was plenty filling but somewhat monotonous. There is nothing to do at night (after 9pm) but in fairness there isn't much going on anywhere on raro most nights.

Slice of paradise
Great location, reasonably priced food and drinks but main menu could have been varied more. Easy to get around from the resort. Downside is no tv in the room but adds to the ability to unwind and switch off. A bit noisy early in the morning with workers staring up equipment and the roosters as an alarm clock
