My husband and I had stayed in Aitutaki for 4 nights, prior to returning to Rarotonga, but the Crown Resort did not compare. We had paid the extra money for a Beachfront Villa, sadly both Villa 1 and ours (Villa 2) have no direct view of the beach because there was a 4ft high barricade positioned in front. While snorkels...

Kia Orana, Thank you for your constructive feedback about your recent stay with us. We apologise about the natural palm frond fence on part of the beachfront area which unfortunately obstructs views of the beach for Villa 2 (Villa 1 has stunning beach & lagoon views). The palm fencing was put up on the request of the traditional land owner...

My husband and I stayed for 6 nights here before continuing to Aitutaki. We do have high expectations, particularly when this was not an inexpensive hotel.... and overall it was nice but certainly didn't leave us with any overall great impressions either. Unfortunately for us the weather was not so great! Lucky for us we got plenty of sunshine as...

My partner and I stayed here on our return from a european holiday. Perhaps we had been a bit spoilt staying at 5 star hotels. there were a few things that got off to a bad start, which doesnt help when you are jet lagged. We felt the rooms were a bit tired, and some maintenance was definitely needed. The...

We recently returned from spending a few nights in a courtyard pool villa, and hated having to leave this beautiful adults only resort. Our suites were huge with large bathrooms featuring double vanities, claw foot bath and and a supersize shower with a rainhead and a regular shower, plus a separate toilet. High stone walls surrounded our large courtyard which...

In a nutshell: - Lovely room. Poor aircon. We stayed in courtyard pool suites, would not recommend any other type as these totally make the holiday. Total seclusion, plunge pool, totally private. Awesome! The beach front villas dont offer any privacy, neither do the pool side ones. Garden villas might do more so.. but you cannot beat the poolside villas...
