We spent Christmas week 2013 at the Muri Beach Club Hotel. Even though we live in San Diego, our 23 and 25 year old "kids" wanted a warm vacation and somewhere where they could snorkel and dive. Rarotonga was the perfect choice, and the hotel was great. Liana and the staff were all extremely nice and were dedicated to making our stay enjoyable. Our rooms were plain, but clean, large, quiet, and had comfortable beds. Not the Four Seasons, but were perfectly fine. We loved the breakfast buffets. Lots of beautiful local fruit, and the warm entrée varied every day. The staff really went out of their way on Christmas day to decorate the restaurant area and serve a fantastic lunch. The location of the hotel is amazing. The beach and lagoon were spectacular, and we loved taking long walks on the beach and kayaking to the small islands (sometimes with a friendly local dog). We spent most evenings sitting on the beach, socializing with the other guests (mostly New Zealanders). We took the local bus several times to town. The Saturday market is not to be missed! We also rented mopeds and drove up into the beautiful interior of the island. If you want a vacation with nightclubs, city life, and lots of tourist activities, Rarotonga isn't for you. However, if you want a relaxing vacation, on a beautiful island with friendly locals, and want a break from cell phones, cable TV, and Wi-Fi, this is the place. If you are Americans, check out the deals from Costco (LAX direct flight to Rarotonga on Air New Zealand).
