“Absolute paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

This place surpassed all expectations. It was absolute paradise. The only downside is that the rooms are pretty expensive, but if you're going to go all the way to the Cook Islands, I would recommend paying out a little more and staying in a beach front villa. It was fantastic to wake up to the sound of the ocean every morning!

My husband and I were looking for a toddler-friendly holiday spot and we could not have chosen a better place than Pacific Resort. The resort is set in beautiful gardens (our little boy just loved the fish and eels in the rivers) and has the most amazing beachfront onto Muri Lagoon. Perfect paddling pool for infants as well. The family room was ideal and spotlessly clean, and we could not fault the friendly attitude of all the staff. We both agreed that our next family holiday would be back here!

Room Tip: The standard family room was perfect for a toddler. Enough kitchen facilities to be convenient witho...

I organised a work lunch here for 37 people and the communication from my first inquiry through to the last thank you email was smooth and helpful. They set us up with a BBQ in a beach marquee, food was loved by all and the service was very friendly and accommodating. Overall my experience with Pacific Resort was seamless!

We stayed at the Pacific Resort for 14 days,that was our 4th time.The maintanance is kept up to date,the gardens are beautiful & have that lovely island ambience.The chickens & roosters are a nice touch & weren't a problem.We have recommended The Pacific to many people & will return again.Muri lagoon is the best spot on the Island,with small local shops & cafes & restaurants within walking distance.All staff are very helpful & happy.One slight downside was the breakfast as it didn't vary,so for 14 days was a bit boring.The cooked breakfast was great but you had to pay more,they also ran out of crockery ect often.BUT that won't stop us from returning.We are in our 60's & had a great time buzzing around on the scooters.Try it you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: We stayed in room number 1,just near reception & thought it might be a bit noisy,but it was gr...

After staying at the Pacific Resort in Aitutaki we had much lower expectations for this property - we were wrong! Sure, it's much busier and has a lot more guests, but in many ways it was just as good. The beachfront room was great, the staff were very friendly and the bar and restaurants were superb. Plus there's a lot happening on Muri Beach with other bars, restaurants and shops in easy walking distance. We would definitely stay here again.
A big thanks goes to the staff who retrieved some clothes inadvertently left in our room. They were couriered back to us within a week.

Room Tip: Of the beachfront rooms at ground level ask for Room 101. It's nicely trucked away and since it...

Thank you so much we were looked after by everyone at the resort, very friendly.
Also we were there as a group for my son's wedding, that was so beautiful and the resort did
us proud. We are just looking at photo's sent from the wedding and the setting looked wonderful.
The food what can I say melt in the mouth. Over all this has been the best holiday and is a wonderful Pacific resort Rarotonga place to stay.
