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.

Based on the price paid we were very pleased with our hotel choice. Sanctuary is a small quiet quite private part of the Rarotongan resort. Beach and snorkelling excellent all facilities in reasonable order. Looked all around Raro and did not find any other resort that we would have preferred to be at. Service a little slow but we always received everything expected. The option of using all facilities at the Rarotongan suited us as we preferred the bar area and to eat lunch there. Hotel was fully booked and only one person complained to us about not being satisfied. Not 4.5* but based on the sub $300/night paid for a absolute beach front room we had no complaints.

This is my 4th time at the Rarotongan Beach Resort & Spa. I don't feel the need to look further for an awesome tropical holiday. The facility has everything you need, the best beach in Rarotonga, friendly staff and a place you can really relax. I don't want posh, just a real island holiday experience.

The resort itself and its location is gorgeous with the lagoons and beach and snorkeling right at our feet. The views are amazing and the rooms itself are clean and amazing and waking up to the view is incredible
The staff were disappointing on check in. Not giving us basic information on getting cash out, how to get to town, offering service eg hiring a car or bike or there is a van we can take. Obviously Sunday's are closed and minimal things are open.
We managed to use their bikes and biked into town. There was a fantastic chap at the bar that knew about a taxi and reccommended a wine bar- which we didnt get too because all the taxi not available.
Boat trip is a MUST to do - and staff should reccommend it as an option. The lady at reception organised it - but it took a while to finally secure seats on it. This is a must do.
the slick and fast service wasnt there - but then I guess that is ISLAND TIME!
the resort itself was great- cocktail making however, could use an overhaul especially when they highlight Happy Hour.

Quiet getaway. Each room has a private pool, as well as secluded access to the beach on the lagoon, with canoes. The villa is a delightful, open, airy design with lots of window. Staff are lovely, friendly and will arrange anything that's possible on the island for their guests.
