Have just returned from six nights here, spent with our son and his partner, in Villa 13, a 2-bedroom poolside villa - perfectly positioned for the pool, restaurant etc. Had a wonderful time; the villa was clean and tidy, and well-serviced, and the resort itself is in a great location - excellent snorkeling off the beach, superb sunsets, a lovely beach, and about 500m from Island Car and Bike Rentals. The grounds and pool area are great - you really do feel like you're on a tropical island, and it is quiet and private. We actually had the main pool mostly to ourselves for the first few days - several guests who were in villas with private pools spent time in/around the main pool as they found the water in their pools too cold. The restaurant/bar staff was very friendly and helpful - especially Madonna and Frances. Service was sometimes slow - although we suspect this was more to do with the kitchen than the waiting staff. Happy Hour (4-6pm) and cocktails by the beach to watch the sunset were a special part of every day for us. Ngamatua (aka The Warrior) was a stand out as Activities Director, taking us kayaking and snorkeling. The Island Night was great value for money. Will be recommending this to friends and family.

Room Tip: A 2-bedroom poolside villa has lots to recommend it in terms of location.

This was our sixth visit to Crown Beach Resort. We absolutely love staying here, Our Happy Place, and being on the West of the Island the sunsets are amazing. Since our last visit in November, staff morale was low and the resort did not have a good vibe but now that a change has been made it was so great to come back to much happier staff and a much nicer feeling in the resort. The resort is always clean, tidy and well manicured and staff are always very friendly and welcoming. We opted for Villa 8 which is a beachfront villa. Plenty of room, excellently serviced and the nightly turndown service in the resort is pretty special. Oceans restaurant and staff, cant say enough. We would not hesitate to recommend this resort to anyone. Welcome Sierra, you have a wonderful team doing a magnificant job. Cant wait to return.

Crown Beach is the best place ever. This was the 1st time we had been to Rarotonga. The staff, food & location couldn't be faulted. We stayed in a 1 bedroom villa. March is not a busy time so the Resort was quiet. We made the most out of the activities the Resort offered & spent a bit of time with Ngamatua alone so learnt alot about the Island. The breakfast in the morning was great with every day having something different. We ate at Oceans Restaurant every night & loved the food.
We can't wait to go back!!

Rarotonga is the secret gem of the South Pacific, and the Crown Beach has to be one of the best resorts on the Island. It is perfectly located, has great facilities and best of all a wonderful, friendly staff. We stayed in one of the 1 BR villas that was clean, plenty large enough and centrally located. You can't go wrong with this choice.
