Fantastic villas on the best part of the beach.

Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The villas are spacious and comfortable. The snorkelling straight off the beach is the best we have ever done.

Fantastic location on the beach

Pros: Wonderful, helpful and attentive staff, great location. Great villa looking out over the beach (15m from balcony to high tide mark)
Cons: TV didn't work, radio/CD player didn't work, DVD's all pirate copies. Ants a bit of a problem... I appreciate this is a hard one to fix.
Location: Great location close to restaurants and general store. In Rarotonga, nothing is very far away.
Had a lovely time sunbathing and snorkeling on the reef. Local restaurants were inexpensive and good.
