Beautiful resort, extremely friendly and helpful.

Staff where exceptionally genuine, and went out of their way to help you with any enquiries. We were offered VIP tickets to a local rugby league match. The dive shop attached to the resort was very knowledgeable of local history and culture as well as dive locations.

Working stay in paradise

Pros: Location, staff, facilities.
Cons: Not much.
Location: On the shores of Simpson's Harbour, looking towards the volcanoes of Rabaul.
Needing to be in Kokopo for a workshop, we stayed 2 nights at Rapopo Resort. What a wonderful surprise! Friendly staff and guests, and such a wonderful location.

Best spot in Rabaul/Kokopo area

Pros: location, location, location
Cons: The food in the restaurant is great, but some lower priced items would be a valuable addition.
This is a lovely spot looking across the bay to the volcano . The location is close enough to Kokopo for easy access but not right in the hustle and bustle. For those early flights out of East New Britain, the free airport shuttle is ideal. I stayed in one of the lower priced rooms which was comfortable but is on the list for refurbishment . Staff are very helpful . Great restaurant too!

Pros: Good sized pool. Lovely staff and environs.. Great views of the volcanos.
Cons: An over-priced menu and fairly dull international menu which doesn't cater well for vegetarians. Eat elsewhere - KBBungalow is better value menu wise
While 'out of town', it only costs 1 Kina on PMVs to get into Kokopo.
