    Paul and Michelle are wonderful people and we couldn't fault the place in the 10 nights we were there. Very relaxing and friendly and everything you could ever need all on site. Close to town bus outside the gate, shop across the road, beautiful lagoon where you can hand feed the reef fish. Food excellent. Cant wait to go back !

    Coming home and leaving our new friends

    The location was great and the owners and staff were super helpful. Every thing we required was available.They went out of our way to help us. Sunset was amazing from the bar and we saw whales swim by one evening. Fantastic place to stay, I highly recommend it.

    Roosters were annoying but the owners are aware of that and plans are being made about this.

    Michelle and Paul are incredible hosts! Two bars and a restaurant provide everything you need to survive the day. The food is good, bar drinks wonderful, sunsets incredible!

    Nothing!

    Nice clean facilities, in a quiet location, staff are friendly and helpful, overall a good setting to relax.

    Bed is hard, there are only a few restaurant options nearby, otherwise you have to go into the town or Muri on your scooter at night- which can be unpleasant.

    Michelle and Paul and the other staff were very friendly and always extremely helpful when it came to our questions/sorting anything out. Our room was very comfortable and well kept. We had no trouble sleeping at night as the resort is a nice cosy size (only 12 rooms). We had some awesome sunsets there. Perhaps the only downside was the lack of a spacious beach to swim in at the resort, but we just hopped on our scooter and went exploring as awesome beaches are never too far away in Raro!

    Management and staff are wonderfully friendly, generous and helpful. Very convenient having breakfast included, and the option of the restaurant on site for evening meals. Meals can be served at the bar right on the beach. Great location on the sunset side of the island.

    Snorkeling is good right behind the resort, but only at high tide. When the tide is out the water is only ankle deep.

    Paul & Michelle are awesome & extremely accommodating. So helpful & friendly & no request seems too hard. We even booked a transfer to an island show & the company forgot to pick us up so Paul drove us there. They have a beach bar which is so chilled watching sunset, even do pizza night thurs nights with awesome live tunes. Great food. Loved everything!

    Very friendly and welcoming hosts & staff, great breakfast each morning with fresh fruit, decent room, nice beachfront bar at decent prices ($6.50 for a beer), close to town, nice pool, stunning beach right outside the resort. Loved our stay here - we'll be back!!

    Internet very expensive ($9 for 50mb) but that seems to be common in the Cook Islands.

    Lovely, Relaxing stay. Best 10 day break away in paradise, clean and tidy, pool was clean and room service was fantastic

    Although the breakfast was basic and nice (toast, spreads, fresh fruit, cornflakes, weetbix and it did fill the gap, I would have liked to have had muesli as an option or the single serves of cereals so you could have more variety but that's the only thing I can fault.

    Vrijwel alles was heel goed, de ontvangst was zelfs allerhartelijkst en we voelden ons meteen thuis! We would certainly recommend this hotel to others! never saw such personal attention and good location combined in one place. Dining on the beach when the sun goes down... and perfect food as well!

    The Wifi was not free and paid amounts were more than once suddenly gone of themselves... I would advice to make unlimited wifi access included in the roomprice.

    * Seaview room had a picture perfect view * double kayak and snorkels available for free * great local fruit choices at breakfast * friendly owners and helpful staff * fridge and kitchenette in room is a plus

    * food at dinner was good, but not great. Would have wished to see more of a local influence on dishes. Every night has a different theme, which isn't for everyone. Though we appreciated that they are trying to mix things up. On the plus side there are other options in walking distance. * it is a nice place, but it is a bit dated/ weathered (the pictures look a bit nicer than what it is like)
