The location is excellent - right on the beach with snorkelling and kayaks available. Relaxing pool and BBQ areas. Very useful to be able to rent car too. Accommodation had everything we needed and felt very private.

Clean and tidy

Very clean and tidy rooms, excellent hosts in Matt and Adele, who had fantastic communication right from the start before we even arrived. Everything you could ask for without a doubt. Location is brilliant, close enough to the airport to be handy and a lovely stroll through the palms to the beach. Beautiful.

Excellent place to stay.

Pros: Great relaxed atmosphere.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Close to the sea, as everything is on Rarotonga. The glass bottom Koka lagoon cruise is a must.... these guys are great entertainers.
Very clean and the owners are great people. Great place to go and relax. Get a vehicle when you go, either a car of scooter as the bus's always seem full when we want to travel.

Budget resort that has everything you want..

Pros: We liked everything about this place, but the weather was a bit grotty... could you organize some decent weather for when we come back next time...
The staff were so friendly and helpful.... you didn't need to make our bed and change the towels every day, but hey.. we're not complaining... The beach is about 200m down the walkway...... There's a shop over the road that sells most {some] stuff, and a bakery and pub about 5 mins walk away.... The pub has "O"rsome burgers....... The bus stop is about 2 mins walk from the resort..... You'll need a rental car if you stay here, but hey, there's plenty of secure parking..

Be sure you kno what kind of room you Book

It was not like the picture and still can't see our room on other websites of the same motel. We thought through wotif we booked a room with water views as on the website. But we were far from it. Everything else was great. Staff were exceptional. But very disappointed with location. Would have booked somewhere else had we known we were flying all that way and couldnt see the water at all.another tiny grip was other villa people could look directly into our only entry door as they walked around too. No ranch sliders to the air like all the other unit photos have. Even though clean and comftable we obviously got bottom of the barrel and not the holiday we had planned months and months for. I always check that I'm getting what I think when it comes to photos. But the reviews were all reassuring. I will definitely make an in-depth Ph contact if ever a next time

An enjoyable break

Pros: Close to beach, friendly staff, clean rooms.
Cons: Bathroom looked a little tired, with the quality of some repair work looking pretty rough.
Location: Swimming beach down the driveway. Close to cafes, restaurants, There's a bakery across the road, .Car, scooter and bicycle hire close by.
Myself and partner stayed 10 nights and had a most enjoyable holiday. We arrived late and found a lovely welcoming sign at the front of the hotel directing us to our unit We met the staff the following morning - all very pleasant and welcoming. The unit was clean and tidy, serviced regularly and plenty of fresh towels. The beach was a short 100m walk away, great for swimming and snorkeling. We brought our own snorkel gear but could borrow beach shoes from the hotel. Saw whales swimming past!

Good location but in need of TLC

Very basic and very tired. Great location for cafes and restaurants and the setting sun. A lot of money needs to be spent on it to keep it up to standard both inside and out to remain competitive. Owners were away and their manager, Jan was excellent. She has a great way with guests and nothing is a problem for her. The owners chose well in their choice of her.

Friendly secluded villas

We have stayed here for several years. It is conveniently located close to several restaurants, a store, bakery and the bus stop. Best of all its on the sunset side away from the prevailing winds that come from the southeast. You get personal service that the larger resorts cant give.
