Club Raro Resort

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 7 Dec 2022
Club Raro offers comfortable accommodation with everything you would need. Add to this the friendly and helpful staff. The amenities and pool area offer great ambience with two happy hours! The meals are tasty and you get to start the day with a satisfying breakfast. The resort is in a central location and easy walking to town. We would definitely stay there again.

    Cheaper resort option on a rocky beach, pretty to look at the ocean but rougher waves to swim and/or snorkel. Rooms a bit dated, very small shower space. Basic facilities, nice to have the bar by the pool. Sadly during dinner time staff must been too busy and a bit disorganized and made me pay for an extra cocktail that was already paid for. My friend was a witness and we were 100% sure was paid for. It was not even about the $18 but the atitude from staff dealing with it. If you are after a resort experience wouldn't recommend it, more like a motel with a pool.

    We stayed at Club Raro for our girls trip and would absolutely recommend! Great location, beautiful views, comfortable beds and amazing staff!

    Reef shoes are available to guests for free use, the swim up bar is incredible with great tunes and a variety of yummy cocktails and mocktails. And you can get concession cards for your cocktails/smoothies and a couple other things too!

    We enjoyed the delicious menu (ESPECIALLY the pizzas - perfect amount of toppings) and will definitely be coming back to Club Raro next time :) thank you for having us!!!

    A very recent quick trip to my homeland, It's the 2nd time staying at Club Raro for how much it costs was ok. However, the staff are very friendly, the rooms are clean but could do with some upgrade - rooms do look abit tired, new coat of paint will help. The shower area very small, if it's someone abit taller/large it's very squishy I like to have space can you imagine if it's someone else they would find the same thing. The aircon wasn't working. I also noticed the pools ground tiles could do with replacing or new paint as it's quite noticeable other than that it was all good and I still highly recommend visitors as it has gorgeous sea views at your fingertips, it's peaceful and as I said my views are just what i see and hopefully my next visit will be just as good. Kia orana and kia manuia.

    Room tip: try out club raro where it has great location and service. People are very friendly at club raro and in the community. A fantastic place!!!

    Everything that you want in a relaxing holiday. The friendly staff were a real highlight, by the time we left we were on first name basis - thank you to them for their assistance.
    Relaxed atmosphere with no time constraints, rooms were all we needed; comfortable beds, clean facilities, complimentary breakfast had a great selection, restaurant meals were lovely and the pool bar was my personal favorite space.
    Met lots of other visitors in and around the pool. Everyone else seemed to be, like me, happy relaxed and enjoying this beautiful island.
    We travelled as a small family group with my elderly mother. She totally enjoyed herself and the staff were incredibly attentive to her needs/requests if she had any. Thank you again to the lovely staff.
    I was pleasantly surprised with the reasonable pricing of meals and drinks. Not far off NZ prices really. Totally recommend and hope to return again.

    A beautiful place to stay. Highly recommended. Idyllic setting.
    Sitting watching the whales jumping out of the water.
    Resort is only small so no crowds!!!. Staff soon become your friends. Nothing is too much trouble.
    We've stayed here about 4 times now. Have looked around but because of the size and island genuine surroundings. we feel we really are away on a tropical island.
    Excellent prices on the menu. Food delicious
