nice stay in Rarotonga
I’m a previous visitor to the Cook Islands, this was a quick holiday to escape months of long work weeks! The inn was near Avarua but not in town, only a short walk, some good restaurants close by and a shop next door. It’s not a full service high end resort, more of a beach bungalow to use as a base to explore Raro. Beach is narrow and reef very close in this part of the island but you’ll have it to yourself. If you want multiple beach bars and wide open lagoons to swim in you won’t find it here but I just wanted a nice inexpensive place near town., With my hired scooter I could easily get anywhere on the island in 30-40 min. Its a pretty drive anyway! The room was basic but clean and everything worked, no aircon but didn’t need it. No kitchen but small fridge, sink and microwave. It had an upper loft and hot water that took a couple minutes but worked . The hotel has a nice back deck and open bar area but under renovation during my stay. I had seen some reviews about staff not being around or not helpful but I certainly did not get that impression, the owners very helpful. My only issue was that I think it could be quite noisy if rooms were all occupied, but. I also had a middle room. it was off season during my visit and only a few guests but one night it was quite loud quite late but that was the only time. Otherwise I was happy with my visit, at the price I wished to pay. Getting around the island is very easy so I had no need for a pricey ‘resort’ further away.

The location was great. Close to the city (walking distance), is located right on the beach, was secluded and very quiet.

This is basic accommodation. We had a clean comfortable room. The place is old but met all our simple needs. The location is a short walk to town. The bus stops outside the Inn and is an easy way to travel the whole island. A big shout out to the manager Chantelle who made every step of our trip simple and pleasant.
