We stayed here for a week in March on our honeymoon. The location of the hotel is great, on Muri beach which is probably the most beautiful part of the lagoon surrounding Rarotonga. Within Muri itself there are also many other things to do, places to eat and yet it still feels very quiet and peaceful. The resort itself is...

This was our last stop of our holiday after New Zealand for a 25 wedding anniversary. We didn't really know a lot about the Cook Islands, other than it is very relaxing, and that it is. Our resort (if not a little tired) was in a fabulous position, turquoise water out front and mountains behind, reminded us of a mini...

Beach wedding was arrangedperfectly by the resort. The setting and service were superb. Hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful at all times, front desk, housekeeping, beach hut and the restaurants. I recommend taking the free kayak tour. A chance to learn a bit about the island from a local, and lots of tips on what to do and where...

This was our fourth visit to this resort. A beautiful situation with the full 'white sand, blue sea and palm trees.' Room was well furnished and spotlessly clean. Some aspects are beginning to show their age so it was pleasing to see a programme of refurbishment was under way. We had a good breakfast and every evening meal was excellent...

This was the second Pacific Resort we stayed at in the Cook Islands. The resort has taken great care to provide personalized customer service without being over-bearing. The rooms are spacious and clean. Our patio overlooked the lagoon/ocean and we started most mornings with coffee and admiring the view. As a bonus, our room had a small fridge, microwave and...

As we were staying at Te Manava (which is managed by Pacific Resorts), they provide shuttle service between the two properties, and there is no bar at Te Manava, we decided to give the Barefoot Bar a try! Somewhat mixed reviews. Pretty good food/beverages coupled with a spectacular view of Muri Lagoon! We certainly enjoy outdoor eating, so being on...

We loved staying at the Pacific Resort Rarotonga. We are not very familiar to resorts, but I think this accomodation was the best solution on the island. After touring around a little bit, we awarded Muri Beach as the best beach on the island, and the Pacific Resort is located just in the middle of this wonderful beach. Our lovely...

What a great resort, and destination! The resort is immaculate, and the staff are super friendly and helpful. So great to find a place where the folks realize their livelihood is dependent on tourism and work very hard to make you want to visit again, and we will. Can't say enough nice things about the trip.

We were fortunate to have only 1 night at the Pacific Resort Rarotonga. We had booked a Beach Front Suite, expecting something amazing, being rated 4 1/2 star and right on the beach. Paying $800.NZ per night you would expect something quite abit better than a 2 star hotel room. Low and behold on arriving, it was a hotel room...
