Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A beautiful island and only five hours from Sydney. Staying in a beautiful house on the beach With my partner. The locals a lovely and it has a very peaceful easy vibe. Very casual place, no need to dress up. Variety food is not so big. I loved it here

You do need to prebook to ensure a seat. We were picked up from our villa and driven to the village. We learnt so much about the Cook Island culture which was fascinating. The buffet meal was delicious with so many different types of food, there was enough to suit any fussy eater. After dinner, the show started which was a delightful mix of music and dancing. Great night out with lots of energy, laughs and learning. I would go again

A perfect mix of culture, entertainment, complemented with history. This is brilliant evening to learn about the real cook islands and culture behind the dresses, dances and customs. Fabulous food and great hosts.
