After arriving at approx 1am from the airport, we had no bearings on the hotel layout until the sun came up the next morning, and the ground floor room we stayed, was right on the manicured beach. It was almost picture perfect. The check in staff were really under the pump when we arrived with about 15 other couples, but we were checked in swiftly and taken to our room by friendly hotel staff.
The room was very clean, very spacious and extremely comfortable. Slept well on a comfortable bed.
Breakfast was a highlight every day, with chickens roaming around your table, postcard views of the lagoon and horizon and an amazing array of food on offer. The restaurant staff were very polite and friendly. Polynesian rentals were part of the hotel complex, which made obtaining a temporary license and scooter hire very convenient. It is also within walking distance to some really nice restaurants, so dinner was always easy too.
The snorkelling out in front of the hotel was pretty spectacular as it is a marine reserve that is administered by the hotel is a highlight. Fish are abundant and the water is warm in a very safe environment, especially for families with children. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Rarotonga, it will have everything you need for a great holiday.
