What a great place Coral Sands is. Spotlessly clean with everything to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. Complimentary breakfast supplied for the first day, use of reef shoes, snorkels, flippers, DVDs, books and even a mobile phone to book activities. Centrally located between the main town and Muri with only a 100 metre walk to the beach and easy...

Just 2 min from the beach on a private path and a great view of the sunsets. Our one bedroom unit was spacious and clean when we arrived.

We were initially attracted to this accommodation due to excellent ratings on Trip Advisor. We are pleased to report that the Coral Sands certainly lives up to its reputation. The apartments themselves are spotless and very well maintained. There is a fully equipped kitchen with such things as a Nespresso machine, coffee plunger etc. The resort has kayaks for use,...

When you arrive late at night it is a great welcome to Raratonga to be met at the airport with traditional flower neck ais and transferred to your apartment where your name is on a board at the door, lamps on and the fridge is stocked for breakfast.

Please be aware that hotel information regarding this property is misleading and misrepresented by the property owners. We booked 40 sq metres 1 bedroom apartment via Expedia.

It is disappointing that in the extensive email conversations we had in the 24 hours before your arrival you chose to ignore the emails that clearly stated that Air Conditioning is an optional extra.
