Excellent 10.0
Pros: Excellent resort. Very friendly staff. Pool clean and refreshing. Room clean and adequately supplied.
Mediocre 3.0
Pros: Staff was basically ok - had Ant-Highway in my room (expected in these regions). Everyone was friendly.
Cons: Since I had to reduce my stay to one day due to changed flight - I found it inappropriate that booking.com/LagoonBreez refused to reduce the price in any way. I will never book through booking.com again. Wasted ~200EUR. I simply expect more flexibilty here It should be emphasized that there is no free Wifi on Cook Islands and that on weekends the whole Island falls into hibernation.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: This is a wonderful place to stay.Rooms are very spacious. Service is fantastic.The location is right across road from beach and the gardens are lovely. There is a supermarket close by and rental cars just down the road.. would highly recommend to stay here..
Excellent 10.0
Pros: 1. The service was friendly, helpful and went the extra mile - ie, called ahead our bookings. 2. Cleanliness - rooms were serviced each day. 3. Breakfast - good for a continental breakfast. 4. Equipment - great to have access to these. Overall, fabulous place.
Cons: The wifi was a bit slow and patchy.
Good 7.6
Excellent 9.6

Cons: Not enough fins for use A few ghost ants
Excellent 9.2
Pros: The team is amazing friendly and will help you where you need it.
Cons: The breakfast is an island breakfast. For the most it will be perfect and fine. We would liked to have eggs so we preparded some days our own breakfast at the Bungalow.

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Hosts were fantastic with lots of useful information. We had everything we needed for our stay, including bikes!
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Great breakfast on first day. Free bicycles were handy. Host was very helpful and friendly.
Cons: Breakfast included each day would have been great.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: We loved everything about our stay here at Day Dreamer resort. Arriving in the middle of the night was easy and with great communication form Anna and Rob we found our key and could get in our unit with no trouble at all. We loved that Anna and Rob let us use their bikes to cycle around the Island, which is great and helped us save money. We loved meeting Lulu and talking with Anna and Rob about the Island and what to do. We had a great time and would return in a heart beat. Loved our short stay here at Day Dreamer Island.
Cons: Nothing, it was all great
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Lovely small intimate location. Friendly helpful hosts. Would highly recommend
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Rob and Anna are wonderful hosts, the grounds are beautifully kept and Angel kept the unit lovely and clean.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: The Resort was ideally situated about halfway from Avarua to Muri. Very quiet and peaceful set in beautiful surroundings. The apartment had everything you wanted and the pool was spotlessly clean and refreshing. Rob and Anna were lovely hosts and Angel was a superb housekeeper and of course not forgetting Lulu the dog.
Cons: Nothing comes to mind that you don’t expect in Rarotonga eg roosters!

Excellent 10.0
Pros: The very friendly hospitality.the general ambienceof the resort..
Cons: The price.far too expensive
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Loved its simplicity- not commercial, quiet, stunning location and wonderful, friendly staff. Delicious food as well.
Cons: Nothing except maybe the bed, 2 doubles pushed together with egg crate. It could have been more comfortable.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: The two large and deep pools in proportion to the number of overall resort size, and beautiful garden surroundings make it an excellent place to relax and unwind.
Cons: Some improvements to the blinds could make the rooms more sound proof to keep out noises of roosters and guests that don't know how to keep their voices down outside when it's dark.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: This is our 3rd stay at the Sunset over the last 8 years and we'll keep coming back as we love it. The relaxing atmosphere, cleanliness, beautiful gardens, and fantastic pools make it the perfect place to enjoy and unwind. This we we tried another resort but only lasted two days before cancelling and booking into the sunset. The extra cost was worth it. Continental Breakfast was good with fresh local fruit and fruit salad every day.
Cons: The roosters....But that's part of life in the Cooks and you get used to them!! Maintenance on the metal window shades would help.
Good 7.5
Pros: Despite a few cons, we all loved staying at this hotel and would recommend others to stay here. The beach outside the resort is probably one of the nicest that we saw on the island and felt very private. If you want to relax undisturbed on a hammock then this is the right place. The two pools were good sizes and very clean. The whole resort felt very well maintained. We were very impressed with the standard and amenities of our rooms in the pool side villas. The quality of food in the restaurant (a la carte) was also very good (although breakfast is quite standard) - we also found the staff in the restaurant very friendly!
Cons: Unfortunately we found a couple of the staff on reception to be quite unfriendly and unhelpful when we had questions about activities on the island. We didn't have the best check in experience as we had to wait over an hour for our transfer (knowing this we would have got a taxi which works out the same price). We stayed at Sunset over Christmas, and it was a shame that more effort wasn't made around the hotel to put it in the Christmas spirit (E.g Christmas songs/ decorations on Xmas day, or even a special morning breakfast would have been a nice touch). The pool bar was also unstaffed the whole time we were there.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The Sunset was everything we wanted plus more. Our meals including the daily continental breakfast were excellent. great cocktails made by Rua :-) very friendly helpful staff. Housekeeping ladies were fabulous even with all our questions and the unit was serviced daily apart from Sunday but the staff made sure we were substantially supplied. Facilities were fantastic, the pools were very clean and always very tidy.
Cons: The only thing we were not really happy with was the bed being two singles pushed together was not ideal, we would have preferred a complete mattress. Also the resident rooster was a pain crowing from 1.30am everyday.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Lovely staff and facilities
Cons: Rooms were quite noisy
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Room 6...the best. Excellent ocean view and access. All staff..dining room, bar, cleaning..so helpful. And front desk staff...exceptional. Great location..quiet but easy access to town and Muri area. Food excellent.
Cons: The bed!! Sooo soft. Mattress very thick but no firmness. Needs replacement!!!! My only complaint.

Cons: Facility was not airconditioned
Good 7.0
Pros: The quite west facing beach. The approachable staff. the sound of the sea. The live music. Suggestions and advice on tours. New local doctor
Cons: The road noise. the cockroaches, the poor wifI at times. Could have been offered 3 days wifi hotspot free.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: This is a compact Resort and I loved there was no hustle and bustle with masses of people. The staff are friendly, interactive and incredibly helpful with sharing their knowledge of the "Things to do" in Rarotonga. I am looking forward to heading b ack there again in a year or so.
Cons: It took a little while to get used to the roosters that roam wild but these are a challenge all over the island and are not restricted to just this area.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Location - a few steps to the water, great spot for snorkelling, wonderful sunsets. Friendly and helpful staff - all with a sense of humour! Accomodation - spacious, well laid out - all the basics for self catering - super strong shower! Substantial breakfasts included - fresh fruit, warm muffins, toast and spreads and of course the local coffee. Welcoming hosts, Steve and Geraldine have a depth of local knowledge which they willingly shared when approached for information eg local places of interest, walks, restaurants, markets.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Great breakfast experience! Great staff and the owners are utterly lovely. Really can't fault this place one bit, the bar serves a relatively limited menu but the food itself is very good and the bar staff are friendly.
Excellent 9.4
Pros: Great breakfast at the Shipwreck Hut Beachside, colourful tie-dye bedspread & curtains & cute bungalows
Cons: Lots of roosters around the property that start crowing at 4:30am right outside the bungalows!!!!

Cons: Private
Excellent 10.0
Pros: This property was kept very clean, lovely hosts. Had everything you need on a holiday, beautiful pool which we used a lot 👍
Cons: Air Con was set on one temperature, happy to pay $2 per hour & 1/2 but would prefer to be able to increase as required, was super hot & was hard to get to sleep. Unit 6 not sure what the other units were like.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Nicely situated between the main town and Muri with a regular bus stop outside the property. Good pool and free kayaks.
Cons: Restrictions on cooking in the apartment, lack of hanging space for clothes and although there is a lovely beach the rocks and coral makes swimming in the sea a challenge!

Cons: Absolutely nothing
Excellent 9.6
Pros: Position and privacy and loved the sound of the waves on the reef. Sheryl and John, the managers, were very helpful.
Cons: Thought room rate a little high. Pool was too cold. Wouldn't have liked to stay at a very hot time of year and had to pay for the aircon on top of room rate. We were happy with ceiling fan in July weather.

Excellent 8.0
Pros: Staff really nice! Great location!
Cons: The chickens walk freely for the resort woke up me very early in the morning! Every morning! 😅
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The location is amazing,easily the best thing about Manuia. the pool area is awesome, restaurant is ok, expensive. Rooms are very spacious, love the outdoor shower.
Cons: Noisiness. Our room was beachfront and close to the restaurant. Loud pepple early in the morning and close to the sevice alley was a downer. Had to buy data that didnt work in our rooms and no real help from staff. Had to sit outside office to contact family.
Good 6.0
Pros: Great food at restaraunt
Cons: No free WiFi. The resort is over run by wild roosters crowing at 3am in the morning very annoying
Mediocre 3.0
Pros: The location was excellent and the hotel grounds well maintained. We liked the restaurant: food, staff and the nightly entertainment there were very good
Cons: Reception - nothing we have asked or ordered through reception was done correctly: * Booked a table for dinner, the restaurant wasn't notified * Ordered boxed breakfasts for the next day, the restaurant knew nothing about our request. * Ordered a prepaid transfer to the airport - not a cheap option at $60 for party of three for just 4km taxi ride. The pickup time was set to 9:30 p.m. and the reception closes at 5 p.m so given the prior experience I have twice confirmed the time and got assured that the driver will be available. When we showed up for pick up there was no driver to take us to the airport, worse, the security person did not even have our name on the transfer list that night. AC Unit in the room was randomly stopping and had to be manually activated several times a night. Stray dogs and chicken were roaming freely throughout the property, roosters making loud noise all night interrupting sleep Beware - the resort charges a 3% fee for all credit card transactions. You can charge the restaurant bill to the room number, but then the hotel will add the credit card fee to it. There is no extra fee if you pay directly to the restaurant.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The Location is Paradise and in my opinion way superior to the more 5 star known resorts on Raro. The restaurant staff and food quality also superior to the Muri competitors.
Cons: This time only 8 days.

Good 7.9
Pros: Host were great! DVD selection saved the day. Restaurants next door. Plenty of souvenirs downtown and convenience store nearby. There are two fitness centers in town that open in the AM and have showers just in case. 2 miles from the center of town. Beach access is two minute walk.
Cons: Cable news or some sort of TV programming would be great. Free AC would be even better. Tourist information and pamphlets about the island, restaurants, etc. Taxi over charge was unexpected. :-(.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Owners are very nice and helpful. Room is clean and tidy. You can access the beach within one minute.
Cons: It’s not by the beach. The owner built too many villas on a small land. no view at all, all you can see on your balcony are the other villas, roofs, and someone else’s bed.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The cleanliness of the property the comfort of the bed the stunning beachside’ with kayaks&beach shoes provided’.No faults thank you Cooks Oasis 😊
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Clean, comfortable beds, friendly and accommodating staff.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The villa we got was perfect! The kitchen had EVERYTHING we needed and more. The living room was great and comfortable. It was a very relaxed feel throughout. The beach was just a very short stroll away - hammocks and lounge chairs!!! Great to watch the sunset or just have an afternoon nap! Location: close to some very nice restaurants and a great bakery! Matt and Adele are great hosts - great knowledge handed to us as first-timers to the Island. We'll be back! THANK YOU!!!
Excellent 9.2
Pros: Very friendly and helpful hosts. Great location
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Matt is a CHAMPION. Top setup. Reasonably priced. Lots of little extras to make the perfect holiday spot.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Adele and Matt are lovely hosts and happy to chat or help with local advice. The apartment was spacious and well equipped, except the oven wasn't working which meant cooking options were restricted. Good sized fridge. It's a short walk to the beach for beautifully warm swimming/snorkelling, and their swing seat on the beach is a perfect sunset spot. A scooter is handy for transport as it's a way from the main centre, but you need a full motorcycle license to hire. Otherwise there is a bus once an hour. Free-range (friendly) dogs on site.
Cons: Only niggle is paying top dollar for an 'Ocean View room' which wasn't as advertised. There is no ocean view, apart from a glimpse through trees. They are new owners and have since changed the listing description. The pre-arranged airport taxi is overly expensive for a ten-minute ride ($22 per person), although you get a fresh flower garland (lei) on arrival which is nice. Internet access is prohibitively expensive for this day and age.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: Close to beach and good restaurants
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Loved the staff/owners friendliness! Very informal settings including DVDs, laundry, small pool (we never used), water toys such as masks, snorkels, water shoes, ocean kayaks. Well landscaped alleys, private villas. Not exactly waterfront, but 50m (150') walk from the beach is still a great location!
Cons: In USA early check-in, late check-out is a common courtesy (of course based on availability) that appears to be not the case here in the Cook Islands.

Pros: The staff were great, the size of the room was also fab.
Cons: It was nice but dated. In need of a major overhaul. Stating that it is 5 star is definitely pushing it
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Loved our private cabana and pool, very romantic and peaceful!! Very nice cottage!!!!! Enjoyed snorkeling out front and close to getting a scooter to travel around the island!! Ordered a drink of the day and it was delivered to private cabana...very nice service!!
Cons: Breakfast would run out of a few things...sometimes short on food items...

Pros: Staff were fantastic
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Buffet breakfast was excellent, and they had eggs cooked to order.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The beachfront location is stunning and the bungalows are well designed. Access straight onto the beach was a real bonus. The staff were always happy and cheerful. Although small, the pool was perfect.
Cons: Having to pay for wifi which was narrow and severely limiting. The single channel tv was annoying when it was raining and nothing to do and 50% in Chinese. Mosquito's and Sand Flies were a real problem with no deterrent issued by the hotel. I got bitten a lot. Storm damage repairs were being carried out in front of our bungalow during our stay, but no compensation or discount was offered although the workmen were there every day in front of our beach front bungalow. They were our view.
Good 7.1
Pros: Relaxing and quiet
Cons: There was no spa on site,we were looking forward to a soak in the hot tub after our wedding . The one they had at the salon was out of order 😪
Excellent 9.6
Pros: Location was great and the restaurant and bar at the resort were great. The island night show at the resort was fantastic.
Cons: The bathroom in our villa was a bit outdated and the shower leaked a little
Excellent 9.1
Pros: enjoyed the consistent and high level of service, great food nice off beach private bungalow - well setup
Cons: beach not as nice as muri for general swimming activities due to the closeness of the outer reef and lack of much open area for swimming

Excellent 8.0
Pros: We really enjoyed our stay at the Sanctuary it had great facilities and the room was modern, comfortable and very clean. The private beach feels super luxurious and is very quiet and relaxing. There was lots of activities to do including snorkeling, paddle boarding and kayaking. There is a bus stop right outside the property which can take you all around the island. We would return to the Sanctuary again.
Cons: The restaurant is slightly dull and does not have much atmosphere. The sister hotel next door has the same menu but a much better atmosphere and lots of entertainment and music.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: air conditioning, room view, artwork, shower, authentic style, housekeeping, fresh towels daily

Good 7.0
Pros: Very good communication with manager and organised excellent pick up and drop off from airport. Excellent aircon already running when we got in. We arrived late and left early so did not spend much time here, was exactly what we needed for one night and our late check in/early check out was organised very well.
Cons: Rooms are a bit basic/outdated There was some music from a bar close by but I think that's just Friday nights
Good 7.9
Pros: Lack of pretention
Cons: Jacuzzi not working Couldn’t access wifi
Poor 1.0
Cons: There is no kitchen sink to wash dishes and only one double set of every kitchen ware for example - two dinner plates, two forks, two knives etc.. There was a family of lizards living in the room that we had to remove. The bath room was swarmed with large fire ants, at least 60+ dead in the bathroom by morning. There were mosquitoes all through the bed as I didn’t have a single bite until I stayed one night here and my legs were covered by morning.
Poor 1.0
Pros: the location is quite close to the town,it is handy for people who is looking for the late flight transit. the owner is nice, i forgot my stuffs in the bathroom, and he sent it back to me. i really appreciated that.
Cons: Even the location is good and owner is reasonable nice, but I have to say I had a nightmare there. I arrived quite late after 12am, and the taxi driver took me in the room. As you could see in the pictures, I spent more than an hour to kill all the bugs in the room. That was so scary, the bugs, big ants, even lizards were everywhere, I used all the pesticides to kill the bugs, then I saw almost an hundred bodies on the floor. I called the owner immediately, I have looked around of other rooms, they were empyt at that time, but he said he could do nothing, no room to change and he could not drive 30min back just to kill the bugs for me. I was absolutely devasted, could not sleep for the whole night, I even want to call the police to help me. The next day when i met the owner, he said might because of the rain yesterday, so all the bugs were in my room. But I think as a local, the owner definitely knows there will be bugs in the room after rain. Why he still left the door open and let all the bugs crawling in the room? That was a nightmare.... I am very upset of spending $125 for staying bugs hole for a night

Excellent 10.0
Pros: We stayed at the Reef Motel because of its proximity to a wedding venue we were checking out. It also is close proximity to the airport. We were very happy with the accommodation. Unfortunately the weather wasnt the best but we felt safe in our room whilst the wind blew and it poured with rain!!!
Good 7.0
Pros: The staff were friendly
Cons: The fact we had asked in advance to be picked up from airport and nobody came...we had to find our own way at 2am... linen wasn't changed until the day we left...,we were there for 7 days
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Didn’t have any so I wouldn’t know
Cons: The taxi driver ripping me off
Good 7.1
Pros: Good location for the airport if you’re stopping over for a couple of nights but not the best place for long stay in Raro. Big room, well equipped, large bathroom. Short walk from the Blackrock Beach (less than 1 min).
Cons: Basic finish and expensive for the standard offered. Staff never on site so all communication done by email. Not much around apart from beautiful beach. Shower only suitable for short people (below 175cm).
Okay 5.0
Pros: The beach
Cons: Double charge of fee. Booking rate was F $1171 accomodation charged nz$1,120.00. My coworker was charged nz$80.00 pe r night while I was charged nz $140.00 night.
Good 7.5
Pros: We had a beachfront villa, lovely sea views and private beach..bus stop at gate, established gardens.
Cons: Washing machine pretty old and dated, only 1 for all the units to share. Rooms pretty basic, with AirConditioning unit above the bed being old, disconnected, so not working .
Excellent 8.3
Pros: The location of the property is a major plus, being so closed to the airport and downtown area. A local bus stop is in front of the property making it very easy to ride buses everywhere instead of having to rent a car. A small property and the owner is very considerate and helpful in every way to make my stay as enjoyable as it can be, such as early check-in and late check-out which is very important for U.S. travellers since flights usually arrive early in the morning and depart very late at night. The nice porch in the villas is very suitable to see the sunrise and sunsets. The staff was also very helpfull and friendly.
Cons: The property really needs a good fumigation because of insects inside the rooms such as ants and some other flying bugs. I even saw rodents in the property. Faucets should be replaced in some showers. A few upgrades will change the property for better since it has a nice but rocky beach. Agua socks are must to walk on the beach and also for swimming., It is cozy and basic and good for the money .
Okay 5.0
Pros: The room was nice, and close to the beach. It is a nice resort close to the Edgewater Resort, and with well kept grounds.
Cons: I was not happy to pay 3.5% fee for paying with a Debit Card (not a credit card). I was not happy to hear that the staff are paid a very low wage, and that they did not receive what they were contracted to get.
Excellent 8.3
Pros: The location was great 10 min walk to Edgewater where rest of family was staying. Has its own beach area which was very nice. The staff were very friendly and approachable and helped in any way possible to make your stay stress free .
Cons: Roosters wake you up every morning they run wild all over Rarotonga does not matter where you stay, but got used to them.

Pros: Excellent, friendly staff who did their utmost to ensure that our family were informed of the best local shopping, rental car hire, favourite restaurants, Entertainment, Markets, the Tides (which is really important), loved that we had our own private beach outside the gates😊 Clean and tidy units and grounds at all times. Thank you Paul and Jane for all the times I had asked for advice,and you catered to our needs. My daughters' birthday was made so special, a day she will not forget...love how you went that extra mile to ensure she had an unforgettable birthday in beautiful Rarotonga. Highly Recommend 'The Black Pearl at Puaikura' to stay while on holiday in beautiful Rarotonga

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Close to town and the beach. Chantelle was super friendly and helpful! Good value. Bus stop right outside. Flexible check in/check out and easy transfers to the airport.

Good 7.1
Pros: After traversing the many wonderous places on the Island of Rarotonga during the day, it was great to retreat to the paradise Inn at night. I really was surprised by the staff who make it a pleasure to stay at P.I Cookislands. They went above and beyond expectation to help make my stay an enjoyable one. Manager Chantelle & all the support staff were very understanding & always willing to facilitate assistance with travel plans or give valuable advice when it was needed. Great beach access, close to shops&town. To further explore the Island, it's easy to rent a bike or car from www.polynesianhire.co.ck My room was 3star (as advertised), but I felt like I got the 5star treatment. Considering the price I paid for the length of stay; I would look to revisit Paradise again.
Cons: The place could do with an upgrade

Pros: Great Location
Good 6.0
Pros: The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Cons: The property is looking very tired and the rooms quite baron. they seemed very budget - did not like the soap, shampoo dispensers and the water was very silty to drink.
Okay 5.0
Pros: Nice bed, clean room, good housekeeping staff.
Cons: Room was painted right before we walked in and smelt like paint for two days, breakfast was basic and bland, kids and people walking through restaurant with bare feet, pool didn’t look like pictures, too many kids screaming and running everywhere. Definitely more of a family with young kids kinda place. Some much nicer places to stay on island.

Pros: I like the relaxed friendly atmosphere
Cons: I liked everything

Pros: Breakfast, location and people were very good. Resort giving us room at end while we waited for flight was much appreciated. Missing that place and the trip we had with our family provided great memories for us all. Thanks
Cons: Nothing to report here.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Amazing resort with beautiful view So convenient with everything in the resort from stores to restaurants. The rooms were comfortable and spacey. And cleanliness was beyond our expectations.
Cons: Not applicable
Excellent 9.6
Pros: The staff were wonderful especially Mini-Rose who was super helpful. The spaghetti restaurant was exceptional in terms of island service & food quality. The cleanliness of the hotel & the accommodation was to a good standard when I was there 9yrs ago & on this visit. The hotel is looking very tired though in general & I thought the offering especially the breakfast area & offering of non-cooked food. I'm vegan & getting hot healthy vegan options was a real challenge which on an island where there is more to offer organically than most places around the world is a real challenge in fact I had to live on chips most of the time as a hot meal - thank goodness for the Spaghetti House!
Cons: The Wifi is a costly investment once you get to the island & once paid for you have to be in a hot spot, imagine my surprise having spent on yet another $50 for 3GB (or Edgewater $60 for 2GB :>0) that I couldn't use what I'd bought from BlueSky at the Edgewater. I had to work while I was away for 3.5 wks & that became almost impossible once you invest in wifi you can only use in a hotspot - few & far between places. So it definitely feels like you've been taken advantage of by the big corporate!
Excellent 9.2
Pros: The free breakfast is a bonus, its a simple breakfast and is perfect if you feel like something light, if you want a cooked breakfast upgrade to $15. I forgot to add a child to my booking and they brought in a single bed at no charge. Daily cleaning which is great and the free activities provided at the resort is excellent for families. Nice of them to allow our bags to be stored as our flight was 10 hours after check out.
Cons: SOME (not all) staff I could tell felt like they didn't want to be there, clearing our plates when we weren't finished, one guy at the bar had a hickey on his neck so not as professional. Also beneficial for us but not so much the resort, there needs to be a better system to check on who is entitled for breakfast. Anyone could walk in and have breakfast without being checked, the whole time there I didnt know I had to present my green breakfast card. Bought a 400MB wifi card for $25. Very expensive but gets you off your phone
