Pacific Resort Rarotonga
Ranked #3 of 5 Hotels in Muri
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 August 2014

This is a companion review to another for the property on Aitutaki. We had a package for the two resorts which included the flights between the islands. It was off season In February so it was lovely and uncrowded. The weather was perfect and we literally unwound for four nights here. Not quite as expensive as AItutaki but still a reflection of the supply and limited availability of items in the Cook Islands. The lagoon is fantastic and super safe although not as spectacular or as many fish as the Aitutaki location. Rarotonga is quite compact and you can explore most of it in day or two. The style here is very relaxed and the staff were engaging and hospitable. Buffet breakfast was good for the most part and the dining pavilion on the beach is a standout. I felt the dinner menu options were a little limited especially the predominance of tuna but presentation was excellent and the staff faultless. I have read criticism of the non-potent cocktails but to me this was a plus - it was easy to have a second round especially when the staff do a patrol of the beach every half an hour or so to take orders. The live entertainment was charming and we happily hit the sack by mid evening to wake up to the laughter of the pool boys preparing the beach for the day's activities. Highly recommended

Room Tip: The beachfront room was brilliant and worth the premium but even the cheaper rooms all had lovely ga...

My family and I loved this place. Great Premium Garden Villa. The location was amazing. Grounds were fab and nothing beats having breakfast overlooking the exotic fauna and stream.
Tips: 1) if it's windy on the beach, grab a complimentary kayak & snorkel and make your way across to the small island (Koromiko) 150m away - it was sheltered and amazing. 2) there are plenty of great places to eat near by... try the night markets, Sails and LBV to name a few
This resort was awesome but could be so much more. Better and more proactive table service both at breakfast and dinner. The kids club lads need to be a bit more enthusiastic with the kids

Great well appointed rooms with the most comfortable bed I've experienced in any accommodation. Gardens beautifully presented. Friendly staff (all of them). Nice buffet breakfast. Awesome location on lagoon, very safe for kids (we had 7 in our party.) I could go on but I think you get the picture. Loved it there.

We recently stayed here for our wedding/honeymoon and the experience was great. The service from the staff was excellent, grounds are beautiful and the location on the lagoon is stunning. Our room was well maintained and comfortable.
As far as the wedding goes, I don't think we could have picked a better venue. Leilani and the other staff organised a beautiful little ceremony for our small party. It was completely stress free and I was able to enjoy my big day without having to deal with anything. We had a casual dinner in the restaurant rather than a reception, and everyone enjoyed the meal and the service - thanks Julian.
Its true that the rooms at Pacific Resort are pretty pricey, but it was worth it - especially for a special occasion like our wedding. Service here is exceptional, from the reception desk right through to the restaurant/bar staff, beach hut, groundspeople, cleaning staff and porters. And I think this is probably the best located resort on the island, being right on Muri Lagoon.
I would certainly recommend Pacific Resort as somewhere you can feel welcome and well looked after.

Room Tip: We stayed in a premium beachfront suite - well worth the premium cost to wake up to the sun rising o...

We were looking forward to our upcoming holiday in the Cook Islands to escape the winter chills of Melbourne. We choose to stay at the Pacific Resort and the resort was very well laid out and presented. There were a few hiccups in the first couple of days that were sorted out. The most disappointing thing was the weather it was windy raining and bleak. We only had 1 good day out of 7. The weather is out of everyone's control. The only other comments was that the beds are very very soft.

We stayed for 7 days and from start to finish, the staff were friendly and welcoming. The Beach Hut staff looked after our 8 year old and he enjoyed every minute. The restaurant staff were tireless in their service and the reception staff always had a smile. Grounds were well maintained. The setting on the lagoon was perfect for safe swimming and kayaking. Food was a little expensive, but the cocktails at happy hour are well worth it!!!
