So gross. I stayed here out of necessity as I was on standby for a flight and this was a convenient place to stay. The sheets were stained, the door to the rooms was just a glass door that had been covered in contact paper, tv didn’t work because the remote was “with the mechanic”. I didn’t even shower the next morning because I didn’t want to set foot in the shower. They have a weekly cultural dinner and show which meant the kitchen was shut down for the afternoon when I arrived and there’s nothing within walking distance except a gas station. The Hula Bar, has cheap drinks which is a rarity in Rarotonga and it’s a great view.
