The location on the island as well as the staff and service was second to none. After travelling for years this was the best holiday ever made more enjoyable by previously mentioned, staff, service and location. Location because it is quiet and on the part of the island away from tourists and children.

Nice hotel on the beach

A really nice hotel that is located on the on the beach with a brilliant restaurant and really friendly and helpful staff. All of the rooms are identical and are positioned apart from each other and all have outdoor showers. Also, no children are allowed - perfect!

10 days in near paradise

Pros: Everything! But especially the care and detail the staff and owner paid to ensure that our introduction to Rarotonga was a really enjoyable experience
Cons: Perhaps a bit more variety in the lunchtime menu?
Location: Markets,Island shows, snorkelling and swimming, sunset walks, watching whales breaching. meeting friends for the first time.
Having never been to the Cook Islands before we really did not know what to expect. What we found was a picture perfect and intimate Resort right on the beach with a very friendly staff and owner who went out of their way to make us feel at home.. They even found a lovely cat to seal the deal. Restaurant food was of a very high standard, weather was great, infinity pool a joy (child free) - bottom line we could not have asked for more. If we ever get back to Rarotonga we know where we will be staying.

Right on the beach!

Loved every minute! The perfect place to relax! The rooms were modern, clean and spacious. They were private and all had a nice view of either the garden or the beach.
