Good family based resort. Food was okay and staff were mostly helpful and friendly. Note that the beach can be very windy and exposed in some weather so we could only spend limited time there even thou it was beautiful. Lagoon and outlying islands were awesome.

We were checked into a room that smelt of mould very badly. We were eventually moved to another room that was nicer. This is not a resort, just a hotel with a lagoon in front, minimal facilities, way too overpriced, and not of 4.5 star quality. Wi-fi was very expensive and non-existent in the room.

We stayed here for five nights and had a lovely stay at the resort, even though the weather was horrible. We had a standard studio suite which, although not flash and a bit dated, was comfortable and suited our needs. The gardens are lush and well-kept. Best part of our stay was the friendly and helpful staff, from online reservations... More

We just returned from our stay at the Pacific Resort and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The hotel staff are incredible, the grounds are gorgeous and the resort provided a variety of activities.

We stopped in at the Pacific Resort for lunch. We had great service, happy, friendly, faces on the staff, which sadly many places in our 11 day stay in Rarotonga didn't have. The ambiance was perfect, our meal was great and we were glad to of stopped by.
