Club Raro Resort

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The rooms were infested with ants and on one night my wife and I killed 4 cockroaches. On one evening my wife ordered fish and chips because she does not eat meat. She was told that the kitchen ran out of fish ( which was advertised on the menu). The staff needed to be reminded to replenish the tea/coffee supplies. I spent a lot of money flying from Canada. I wish I had paid more for at least a 4 star hotel. The advertisement of this resort in the Escape magazine is false.

The place is good, but for the price are other options with better location. They kept our luggage while we were in Rarotonga for free. Staff very friendly
