We never checked in due to covid and when asked for a refund we where advised there was no cases of covid in the cook islands. Our airfares and transfers where refunded in full with no questions asked. I suggest the hotel do the same as we will not be going to this hotel should we decided to rebook the cook islands at a later date

Due to low occupancy rate because of Covid -19 the resort didn’t offer all services which sucked for the few of us that were stuck there. They also did not offer a credit for a lot of unused accommodation that did not get used because we had to leave early.

We felt very safe here. I would recommend a beachfront room, not a beachside. We could walk out of our room right onto the beach and use equipment provided by the resort to snorkel in the lagoon out front. The water was crystal clear except during or soon after torrential downpours, which happened often. Room was cleaned meticulously, sheets and towels were great, bed comfy, and staff always polite and friendly. The continental breakfast seemed okay at first, we loved the frsh fruit, but would have appreciated a hard boiled egg now and then. I know its an isolated island but we had to buy all our drinking water which we had to buy daily, as local buses are only once an hour and expensive. It would have been a big improvement to have one bottle water provided each day. We also had to pay for wifi, but $10.00 lasted me for a few days if I used it sparingly. The resort restaurant, Andys , was ok for a dinner now and then, and we loved the staff singing and performing for us twice weekly at happy hour. I would highly recommend this resort, just dont forget your mosquito repellant and sunscreen.
