Exceeded expectations
Great location (across from large grocery store & gas station that are open 24x7. Units are large with all items one would need for a comfortable family holiday. Nice pool and beach is steps away with free water toys (kayaks, snorkeling equipment, water shoes). Breakfast at Coco Latte (attached to hotel) was very good. Service was nice as was the hotel spa. Internet access across the island is a challenge but managed to get a decent signal in the hotel as there is a Hotspot close by. Rental car agency (go cook islands) across the street so you don't have to rely on the bus (stops right at the hotel)

Very Good 8.0
Comfortable villas in amazing location right on the beach. Super friendly staff that goes way and beyond. Very convenient supermarket across the road. My only quibbles are that the rooms are a bit dated and also no restaurant onsite although there is a little cafe which is open for breakfast and light lunch only.

This property really needs to show some uniquiness and bring some local art and bedding into the units. Also needs way more cutlery and kitchen needs.

Our villa was spacious and spotless. Staff are excellent, friendly and helpful. Very convenient to have Wigmore's grocery across the road too. We hope to return again next year - would love it if each bedside had a reading lamp. Thank you!

The property is on a great beach that has lots of snorkeling and kayaks to use. The staff was amazing. It is right across from good small grocery store that sells great homemade foods each day. Locals all come to grab lunches. It is a quiet beach that you can walk to a couple restaurants nearby and bus stops right in front. Villas were nice and spacious for a family of 4.

Clean. Great location. Great staff. Highly recommend this property.
us5 night family trip
Very Good 8.0
Best all-round beach. If you like snorkelling, there is lots of fish to sea only a few steps in. The staff always seemed friendly, and we were given fresh fruit, juice and bread on Day 1. The pool is a little on the small side, so we didn't make use of it. For us the highlights were the beach (warm, lots of fish species to explore), as well as it's proximity to the Wigmore's supermarket + petrol station. Because Rarotonga is a small island, i would suggest hiring a car/scooter to zip around since there is no restaurant/bar on site. Would stay again, and would highly recommend (good value for money in comparison to some of the other resorts/villas)

Exceptional 10.0
I liked that it was semi self service and that it was onto a safe swimming part of the lagoon and the staff were personal and efficient but relaxed and took extra care in helping book other excursions and pick ups and the grounds and cleaning staff were busy but never intrusive and did little things like place fresh flowers inside, those soft touches. The access to the bus and the rental cars and kayaks etc was close too.
