4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The beach bar menu was limited in selection of food. The TV in room did not work properly. 3 channels of snow. Even if it did work it was tiny and 6 feet above the floor. Lounge chairs in unit very uncomfortable. All units came with built in alarms. The roosters crowed from dawn to dusk. Five stars plus for the staff, grounds and location.

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

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.☺️👍☺️

Location was beautiful, right on the beach, on the sheltered side of the island. Accommodation was spacious and well appointed. All units faced the beachfront. Added bonus was the Shipwreck Inn where breakfast was served and at 5pm, drinks and dinner were available also. Friendly and helpful staff as well. Great stay!

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

  • Liked: Staff & service
  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

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

Stayed 10 nights in Jul. 2019
