We came to Rarotonga for a relaxing 10 days in the sun. Night one was loud music until 12:30am after a long flight which ended in us calling the police. Night two was an All Blacks rugby game which the police wouldn't even attend. Night three a party. The owner would not take responsibility at all, actually telling us it...

Thank you for review. The unfortunate aspect of this negativity is that it was all due to a few selfish people operating a bar without any regard for the law or the people in the surrounding area. The bar is neither a sports bar or a nightclub. It is a very small area on the deck of Sails Restaurant which...

Te Vakaroa Villas have yet again impressed us. This is a stunning property and we especially love the new pool upgrade and the glorious new sun-beds around the pool, this is truly a luxurious place to visit and unwind.

We spent 5 nights with a couple of friends in a 2 bedroom villa. From the moment we woke up on our first morning we were just in complete relax mode, the complimentary breakfast of delicious croissants and fruits - and delicious cook island coffee just really set us up for a fantastic time.

Kia Orana and thank you for your review. I would love to heat the pool somehow but it is difficult due to the high cost of gas and the lack of area for a solar system. We have a large gas heated Jacuzzi to provide an area to sit and enjoy the view while having a drink which is a...

Thank you very much for your review.

We stayed for a week and thought that the villas were well furnished and well equipped, so we're not disappointed in that respect.
