  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Spent 2 weeks in Rarotonga and the week at Aroa beachside was the highlight hard to summarise as so much to commend, the snorkelling just outside the resort was great, watching the whales breach at breakfast unforgettable, the room was spacious clean and comfy. The hosts Steve and Geraldine and their staff so helpful and informative, the music nights the best on the island and can Steve sing AWSOME...highly recommend. Will be going back.☺️👍☺️

    Very pleasant outlook over the garden and the beach. Steve gave a good rundown on the Island and its facilities. The beds were comfortable The number of guest are limited. The staff are very friendly. The shack (the eating area is restricted to 5pm opening and breakfast is between 8:30am and 9:30am It is a resort for those who do not like crowds

  • 4.0.Fair

    like- beachside dislike - the property is very dated, the likes of bedspread had holes and various patches, sheets stained, grey towels, and curtains that offered no privacy at all. - the bed must have been at least 15 years old as is sagged and you could feel all the springs. - overpriced and have no idea how they have a 4 star rating

    Room ok but would have been nice to have air con. No replenising of soap or milk. Would've been nice to have had instant coffee sachets instead of just filter coffee. For an adults only resort they don't seem to let their guests have fun.....only just went 10pm & we were told to quiet down even though there were only three couples in the entire resort. We were rudely told our guests had to leave....not happy!! More like a retirement than an adults only resort!! Was much better 13 years ago before it changed ownership. After lots of email corresponfence staff were made aware we were there for a special b'day but they didn't bother to acknowledge it....would've been nice! Will not be going back or recommending to anyone 😒☹

    A lovely quiet location & most rooms have beachview balcony. Good snorkelling in the area. But best is the atmosphere that Steve & Geraldine & staff have created. The evenings often have live music at the Shipwreak bar & the meals are simple but deliscious. Happy memorable evenings at this bar.
