Please look elsewhere for accom on the island. Noisy air con that vibrated and kept us awake, rooms in bad need of some TLC, ants and insects abound. Pool was murky and drinks way too expensive compared to other places on the island. Breakfast offerings were 2 star at best,

Horrible rooms and outdated. Not cleaned very well. We had to complain about our room before being moved to another which wasn't much better. Tasteless food. The pool ladder was tiny and hard to get out of if you were a bit older. We went through the flight center and thought we

Kia orana from Club Raro, We are sorry you did not enjoy your time with us. To advise we have never marketed or had agents sell us as "Luxury". We have maintained we are a good 2.5 to 3 star hotel. It would have been indicative of the price that we would not be a luxury resort as we are not at that luxury price point. Rarotonga does offer many excellent luxury hotels that are all in the brochures at the Flight Centre for respective travellers to look over. In those brochures a clear description of Club Raro is available. House keeping also advised that you did request to not have your room cleaned. Kia Manuia and Merry Christmas Kind regards From the team at Club Raro

What time do the bars close on Friday the 6th July?
Hi there, I apologize for not getting back sooner, not getting notifications like I used to. I actually did not go to the Club Raro Bar the night I stayed there but I do know they do not serve cocktails with breakfast. Had to ask for a beer before leaving for flight to other island.
