Wonderfully welcoming and relaxing stay

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 28 May 2017
We had 5 nights in a Courtyard Pool Suite which was just perfect and I'd recommend people upgrade to these villas. There is plenty of privacy and you have your own private pool. The food and drinks at the resort are really affordable and the staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. 5 nights was not enough and we will definitely be back. Thank you!

Went last year for the first time to any of the Islands, went with sister and a group of 15.
Liked it so much decided to surprise my husband with a 6 day holiday a year later, as thought he would love the experience of it to.

This time we stayed at The Crown Resort, which is for no children under16.
We had the pool suite which is great, just like the photos.
Clean, big and private.

The staff are all lovely. The two restaurants on site are great to.
We hired a soft top car for the time we were there, to get around, the hotel reception organised it for us when there.

Trader Jacks on the water front in town is worth a visit for lunch, also we went to Black Rock cafe which is great to.

Tamas Lagoon Cruise is worth a try.
Rarotonga is a great Culture Experience, and we will be back again for the 3rd year in a row for a friends wedding next year.

Also a great place to take children, a lot of families also there.
Last year we stayed at Edgewater Resort which is more for families.

The flight there is about 4 hours, and a nice trip.
Also very warm, and hot there.

Hope this info helps with your trip.

Shazza.

Room tip: Pool Suites have very private courtyard with pool, and seating, very very private out of all the suites.

Thanks so much Crown Beach, hubby & I were there for our wedding anniversary & everything was perfect, the room (villa7) totally blew us away, meals at the Oceans restaurant were so good, Island night was great, & to have you guys set up the hut outside our room for the night of our anniversary was more than we could have wished for. Turn down services & the happy anniversary bubbly. Such friendly staff all round, everyone seemed to go above our expectations.
Especially Sala at reception, Alby at activities & Frances and Donna at Oceans..
Thank you so much for such a memorable holiday..
100% recommended..

We stayed here for seven nights. It is a small resort on the west side of the island. It does not get the wind the same as the south and east of the island. It is quiet, relaxing, and has great service. The view of the sunset, the nearness to the beach and the excellent staff and facilities are its highlights. There are no children at the resort which is a bonus for those who do not have children. We would highly recommend this resort. On the higher end expense wise but if that is not a worry it is perfect.

Room tip: Villa 1 and 2 are beachfront and private. Villa 19 and 20 were back from the beach but only a stones throw away and very private.
