My second visit to Rarotonga. Will return again next year and will most certainly book at the Sunrise again. Karyn was most helpful and courteous and went out of her way to make sure my stay was pleasurable.
Location was good. Had really Good weather. Price advertised was reasonable. But you get what you pay for.
Waiting for 45minutes to be picked up from the airport upon arrival. All other resorts had staff already standing by once we left customs. The unit had curtains which did not give any privacy because at night with the light on anyone arriving could see directly into the unit even with curtains closed. The most disappointing point was that I was charged nearly $200 more on my credit card. I was contacting sunrise but they stop responding to multiple emails once I asked to be repaid. Paid for car hire myself and was told I would be reimbursed which It was not. The management paper work is ridiculous as she writes on scrap paper for bookings.
free bike and snorkel gear very nice addition
Fantastic location, absolute waterfront bungalows available. Caryn the owner is wonderful, being attentive and incredibly helpful with all facets of your stay. Lovely clean apartments perfectly equipped for a fantastic holiday.
Caryn's great hospitality, caring nature and the whole package that is included in the services offered was great and therefore highly commended.
Caryn provided the best service she could for the price charged. On that note, she is highly commended.
Enjoyed Caryn's awesome, efficient and friendly service, the location was superb for our purpose and the bike service was fantastic for our daily exercise. Thank you so much Caryn and best wishes!!
Caryn was an awesome hosts
The animals cats & dogs the fact there was not a proper oven
Waking up in the morning with nothing but sand and palm trees between me and the reef and ocean was magic. It was fun to walk along the reef at low tide. The local bus a minute's walk along the lane was very handy and if you buy a concession ticket for $30 you get 10 bus trips. The Saturday markets were fun. Beautiful blue water everywhere you travel. The Highland Paradise dinner and show was outstanding, as was the Safari jeep tour. Caryn, the owner of the bungalows was very helpful and her dogs and cats well behaved and friendly. I would certainly go back there. Rarotonga is a great place for a quiet and relaxing holiday and I recommend it. As a solo traveller I felt safe everywhere I went. Thanks to Caryn for her great hospitality. Elizabeth (Sydney)
Caryn was an excellent host. She made us very welcome, went out of her way to collect us from the plane, made sure we had everything we needed, and checked with us that things were going OK.
Sunrise Beach Bungalows were in a great position near Muri Beach. The owner kind and helpful. Ocean view bungalows were pretty special. The night markets at Muri Beach great for eating
Lack of food outlets for self catering nearby and Sunrise was not right on a swimming beach
Needed some new sheets crockery stove etc
The view at sunrise was pretty, it was not too far from Avarua or Muri beaches.
Caryn picked us up an hour late (apparently a regular occurance). Complained the whole trip there. Floor was dirty (sticky and sandy). Bungalow was outdated, dank and unwelcoming. Spotlight in yard shone into the windows creating a blinding light that kept us awake. There was no wifi. The toilet clogged up and I was walked in on by a staff member while in the bathroom and not even apologises to. If it weren't for the beauty of the Cook Islands, this would have ruined my honeymoon.
I loved the sea views. caryn was very helpful
A few ants in kitchen,
Proximity to the wedding and venue we attended. It was good accommodation in general. We were not disturbed by the proprietor or other guests and that was nice.
Very hard beds and pillows I had difficulty sleeping for 4 nights and would wake up very sore each day. We ran out of hot water on day 2. We had towels replaced once in 5 days and no rubbish was removed? Otherwise it was a good stay thank you.
Great value accommodation in a fairly good location with a fantastic hostess who made me feel right at home. Would definitely go back if I go back to Rarotonga.
Quiet, attractive setting, well positioned oceanfront bures, close to busy Muri but without the masses. Hire car or scooters a must. The manager Caryn and her unreserved assistance make the place. Good availability of supplies at acceptable prices. Tourist activities well promoted but mainly relating to the water.
Must have been open for perhaps 15 or so years and some fixtures and fittings etc would benefit from a makeover/update. A new bed would top the list. At the moment Rarotonga is on the edge of a roaming dog problem that is not being fully addressed. Tourists walking about freely is a wonderful feature no longer possible in some other Pacific destinations. Much more determined effort from the authorities needs to happen now otherwise movement will become restricted. Pot holes in the roads , helpful signage missing. Two free maps but both commercial and lacking a lot of much needed non-commercial detail for the visitor
The view, the free use of the bikes, the location...
Being woken up in the middle of the night with the local burgular trying to break in to our place even though we were asleep in bed - so keep all your doors and windows locked
Location was great, make sure you book a beach front bungalow, it was lovely to look out at the ocean and palm trees. Kitchen facilities were good, the bungalow was a good size, the deck out the front was nice to sit on.
It wasn't as clean as I would have thought. Some mould in bathroom and dirt on floors. Fake flowers next to bed were moudly and dusty. The bed was an uncomfortable spring mattress and we both had sore backs after sleeping on it for a week. There was no screen on the sliding door so we couldn't leave it open at night, so my partner didn't sleep well with the heat.
Everything about Sunrise Beach was wonderful from the airport pickup to the first day breakfast package (that lasted several days), the free use of very nice bicycles (we rode around the entire island one day) to the oceanfront view and the proximity to all of the fun and services in Muri Beach. There is no reason to pay more at some cookie-cutter resort for 3x the price -- stay here!
We only stayed at sunrise 2 nights but still managed to have an awesome time despite our flight delay and the weather at the time, Caryn was so lovely to pick us up from the airport and drive us around the Muri area to show us everything when arriving. She also helped us with transport to rent out a scooter and then our move to another hotel further down the road. She was super helpful and upgraded our 1st night to the family house since the beach side cabins were full. We moved to the cabins the 2nd night. Had a cool view of the beach though you can't swim there we collected some cool coral to take home as a souvenir. Location has friendly pets, few cats and dogs. Across the road is a small store if you need some quick food and it's a 5min drive to all the main Muri shops. Overall comfy stay and super affordable!
Saw some ants on the counter at the beachside cabin but not super bothered by it.
Peaceful location with everything we needed. Thanks to Karin who was very friendly and helpful.
Caryn was very helpful and came to get us in her car when we were stranded in Muri township - much appreciated. Lovely box of breakfast goodies left on the deck on our first morning.
We were double booked for the first 2 nights of our 4 night stay - but Caryn did upgrade us to the Muri Beach Club Hotel - quite an upgrade, but not waterfront!! Several other tourists we spoke to were also double booked, even one from 3 years ago...must be a habit.
very nice and very gentle staff but the beach there is horrible, you need a car or bike to go to better beaches
We enjoyed a couple of nights at Sunrise Beach Bungalows and the owner, Caryn, enriched our experience. We were collected from the airport at no charge and she kindly drove us down the road to Muri the next day to book a scooter, detouring to the best snorkel spots and other points of interest. Unlike our other accommodation, Sunrise offers absolute ocean front villas. They contain everything you need and you drift off to sleep hearing the waves break upon the reef. We will definitely stay again with Caryn when we return to the Cooks.
She went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The owner even stored our extra bags while we were in Aitutaki and delivered them to our other resort the day before we got back to Raro.
The roosters, but they are everywhere on raro. You are on the ocean and its beautiful, but there is not a beach there. You can walk a few hundred feet to some sand.
