A total of five of us (the Wrights and the Wallaces) stayed for five nights over Xmas in two, two bedroom units. The rooms are a little dated but were clean, cool and had everything we required. The staff are super friendly and happy. In particular we must thank Anel, Taau and Bianca for their unwavering hospitality and fantastic sense of humour. Opposite the resort is the most amazing burger bar and next door at Ariki great coffee. We will definitely return here again!

Stayed: December 2016, travelled with friends

We stayed at the Pacific Resort for eight days. The staff were welcoming and friendly and went the extra mile for us. We had a two bedroom unit on an upper floor - get this if possible as although similar in layout on lower floors, the lush vegetation around the lower accomodation areas made them a bit dark. The room was comfortable and well appointed, and we had no issues with any part of the accomodation or resort throughout our stay.

Room Tip: As mentioned above, upper level if you are staying in block accomodation areas.

We returned from this resort last night. The accommodation, food and staff are first class. The resort is spotlessly clean, the food is excellent quality and variety, the rooms clean and comfortable. I can't find a negative word to say about it. From the MD, waiting staff, gardeners, cleaners, office staff the whole place is filled with friendly, happy and knowledgeable people, who become friends by the end of the stay. The locals are chatty and helpful, even showing me how to tie a sarong properly! I can't tell you enough what a wonderful place this is. Thank you to Monique, Bianca Te, and all of the staff for making us so welcome. Roll on next year, we will be back!

Room Tip: All rooms are wither beach side, or garden side, who cares, its heaven from all sides!

A great resort with patient, unobtrusive and considerate staff, great facilities and a fabulous location. Great room, 1st floor on the beach at Muri Lagoon. Relaxing and comfortable air conditioned accommodation, great good and service. A joy. Not without its little wrinkles and issues, they did not spoil the break but they were obvious and tarnished the gloss we expected. We were warned against drinking tap water yet there was only one 'safe' water point and it was 200m from the room. The Captain and his entertaining crew on the lagoon cruiser comprised the captain alone, the entertainment was absent, the cruiser itself was tired and tatty, onboard posters were faded or missing and the much hyped glass bottom needed a good clean and the battleship grey colour scheme of the cruiser and of the rather tatty and leaky kayaks did little to promote a vibrant and bright resort. These were some relatively minor issues with little significant impact on our enjoyment. They were however the difference between true luxury and a comfortable and reasonably well ordered and organised resort. Question, would we go back? Probably, but we'd like to see a wee lift in standards of facilities offered to guests. So much potential and oh so close, great basics but let's now think out of the box and go bright and vibrant but still classy

Room Tip: Beach front if available.

We stayed in a premium family room and this was perfect travelling with 2 teenagers.
Spacious with good separation between the sleeping areas to afford all of us some privacy. Had 2 patios with outdoor furniture and a basic kitchen setup with sink, toaster and tea/coffee making.
The beds were possibly the most comfortable hotel beds I have slept in.
Staff were all very friendly and all requests were acted on fast.
Continental breakfasts on the beach overlooking the stunning Muri Lagoon were great with beautiful fresh fruit and the best mini savoury muffins.
The fresh filtered water station by the pool was a godsend to refill water bottles as the temperatures soared however there should be a no smoking policy around the pool (and possibly the resort) for the comfort of all guests. One smoker kept walking past our rooms and even though they were set back with a private walkway his smoke wafted into our rooms (very unpleasant) and then he lit up around the pool affecting everyone there.
Non motorised water equipment - paddle boards, reef shoes etc should be free. Maybe a refundable bond would be a better option especially as the blow up boards were under inflated.
Happy hour needs to include non-alcoholic options as there were no mock-tails we could treat the kids with.
Overall though a very pleasant stay and if we return to Rarotonga would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Premium family rooms are a good size and well designed for travelling with children, especially teens.
