We had a very pleasent stay at the resort. Our room was closed to everything, and very convient location, and we loved it. Our package came with breakfast everyday which was mostly fruits, cereal, muffins, toasts, juices, coffee, and tea. Basically no meat or egg which can be ordered from the menu. Mel's bar was ok. We tried a few drinks, and we were not very happy with. But we went to the island's night dinner/show on Tuesday, the buffet was excellent, the show was pretty good too. Snorkeling right infront of the resort, we loved it.
Most of the employees were friendly, and helpful. Just a couple of front desk people were kind of inpatient the day we arrived. We felt like we didn't want to ask anything anymore because of them. Other than that we loved our stay at the resort.

We stayed in a two bedroom unit beside the pool and enjoyed the unit, location close to other restaurants, airport, hire car facilities, etc. Staff were always friendly and tried to help, however quite a few things to work on and improve if really wanting to be consider in the higher quality resorts.

Smaller bungalow type resort, adult only right on the beach. Close to various other restaurants/resorts but still quiet. Good organised activities with very friendly staff. Overall a great cost effective resort to stay at.

Such a great villa, perfect for our small family (2 adults, one child). Situated on a great beach for snorkelling. Shallow water, perfect for kids. Great view of planes landing ( only a few a day so quite a novelty). Phillip and Jane are lovely and really helpful. Definitely hire a car or scooter, easy to drive here and only 40 mins around the island. Would definitely stay at Rarotonga villas again and would certainly recommend to others.

"Excellent room right on the beach and great view "
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Castaway Resort. Management and staff were friendly and most obliging. Excellent varied menu. Our room was right on the beach and we had a grandstand view from our verandah right next to Wilsons Bar! We went to have a really laid back sort of holiday and that is exactly what we did.

On the Western edge of the island of Rarotonga in the Cook Islands, Arorangi is a paradise of white sand beaches. Accessible to the ancient Polynesian road which encircles the island, Arorangi is also a good starting point for exploration of the island's rugged interior. Both the faithful and curious flock to the area's historic coral churches.
