4/5 Good

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

Although a little dated, this hotel has old world charm. The room we had said ‘ocean view’ (#104) when really it was ‘ocean side’ as we couldn’t really see the ocean. The room itself was large and the bed was spectacular. There really was only one full service restaurant with limited entrees. The food was just ‘okay’. However the setting for this hotel is beautiful and very convenient as the local boys. Stops right in front. I would recommend it for families.

Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Service was great, food was tasty and the cocktails were awesome. Snorkling and kayaking facilities right on the lagoon also included was a bonus.

We came to this property in 2015 and then again this year - a huge change for the better - they are doing it up, refreshing the whole property and it's so much better. The staff were lovely and food delicious. Definately recommend this as at Nov 2019! Keep up the good work The Rarotongan, this idyllic spot deserves the nurturing you are givng it!
