Pacifc resort or Rarotongan beach resort?

Hi, our family is looking at a holiday in October and can't decide between the Pacific or Rarotongan. The Pacific has great reviews but am worried about the sun disappearing early with it being on the sunrise side of island. Some of the photos look pretty gloomy whereas the Rarotongan photos all look bright and sunny. We have two children aged 7 and 8 so keen on these resorts so they will have other kids to hang out with and the kids clubs (particularly the Pacifc) sound great. We would look at staying in either a 2 bed garden villa or lagoon villa at the Pacific and probably a grand beachfront suite at the Rarotongan. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks.

Thanks for your reply Toddy. I am new to this but I did check and most of the posts on this topic are really old and before the Pacific Resort had a proper kids club so interested in hearing from people who have been there more recently.

Both are great resorts. I loved the Muri beach area where the Pacific is for the restaurants - especially Sails but the swimming or snorkelling there is nowhere near as nice as the Rarotongan. The snorkelling out the front of the Rarotonga is spectacular. Really depends what you are after

Regards
