4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Loved every minute staying 6 nights at Crown Beach Resort. This is an adults only resort with all private villas. Pure luxury. The villas are well appointed and very well maintained. My husband and I stayed in a garden villa and it was a very short walk to the beach and pool. The staff are very friendly and give excellent service. The snorkelling at the beach right in front of the resort was fantastic. The resorts 2 restaurants are both excellent. Having a cocktail on the beach watching the sunset was a memorable highlight.

From our arrival to departure was perfect. Quick check-in & check-out. Fresh sandwiches waiting in our room for our very late arrival & a refreshing tropical cocktail. Oceans restaurant was lovely as were all the staff. The lunches were very good. The cocktails just kept coming. Sala on reception was fantastic and nothing was any problem & she helped us a lot. Great turn down service each night & the housekeeping team did an amazing job as do the gardeners. A beautiful relaxing resort, certainly enjoyed the over 18+ criteria. Will definitely be back for an anniversary. Meitaki :)

We got married on the beach here & can't say enough wonderful things; Leilani & Leona & crew were WONDERFUL; we could not have asked for anything better; we are so happy with how our special day turned out! Everything exceeded our expectations! We were thrilled with everything from the planning, the communication, our ceremony, dinner on the beach, breakfast on the beach, the warm and welcoming staff; the food, the island nights; all of it was incredible. We will definitely be back to celebrate our anniversaries for sure! We highly recommend "the Crown" as we like to call it! <3

A week of rest and relaxing. The weather was perfect, that enabled us to lay on the beach most afternoons and that is exactly what we wanted our holiday to be. We had a Courtyard Pool Suite which was totally private. The resort is great and the staff are amazing nothing is any trouble and they are all so friendly and happy all of the time. The food is delicious! Overall we had the best time and would thoroughly recommend. This was our second visit so we knew it would be the perfect destination for us to relax.

Totally relaxed atmosphere, highly recommend the courtyard suites with the pool. Very spacious villas with outside cabana. Good basic breakfast with different choices everyday. Dinner was good in the oceans bar. High standards of food. Beach area could do with a bit of a makeover, I expected hammocks and a more appealing area to relax on the beach, it looks a bit unkept in parts. Staff are lovely, especially Nga and Rose in the oceans bar. There are other options around the hotel to go out and eat and drink. It was amazingly quiet here with adults only being a bonus.

Definitely one of the better properties on Rarotonga. Located on the quieter western side of the island you can take in some spectacular sunsets. The lagoon isn't as deep or as large as at Muri Beach but it is a lagoon "less travelled". The Ocean's restaurant serves up an enjoyable breakfast buffet each day and the bar is always open with service virtually to the water's edge. You are only a 12 minute "clockwise" bus ride from Avarua where you can enjoy the cafe's and shops at your leisure - Cook Island Black Pearls anyone? Also, take note that all of the tours offered on the Island will pick you up and drop you off at your convenience from the lobby or if you prefer more independence you can rent a scooter right at the resort or travel across the road to rent an electric bike. The staff are happy and support the true beauty of this south pacific island which comes from living on "island time" - there isn't a stop light or a fast food outlet in sight and its a wonderful thing!

Stayed here for a week three years ago. Beautiful place. Highly recommend this place Staff very obliging and helpful Rooms divine and the food was out of this world. We stayed in Pool suite which I recommend. Love to come back one day

we stayed in the pool villa and we loved it ! we went for our honeymoon and from the moment we stepped in the resort we felt so loved and appreciated the whole time , from the little from prep gifts to the 2am arrival flight food and early morning leaving flight breakfast baskets they just know how to look after you .Sane, Rose and Leone are outstanding and really made our stay so perfect. we cant wait to go back again , this is one place that will not disappoint you

What a fantastic place to spend our 10 year wedding anniversary!! 5 nights spent at the Crown Beach Resort. We arrived late on Friday night, and had sandwich’s waiting for us, plus bubbles to celebrate our anniversary. Great 1 bedroom room, close to the ocean, all amenities you could need. For our last night we got an upgrade due to water issues, and believe me, next time I will be going straight for the upgrade room!! That was pure heaven! Own pool, courtyard, bath, twin shower, absolutely Devine!! We shall be booking here again, I can guarantee it! Wonderful helpful staff, ready to help with anything. And the sunsets......

We stayed there for about a week, first in a seaview villa and then in a private villa. First one had an awesome view of the ocean but it was outdated and needed renovations. Thanks to the management, we moved to this lovely private villa with a private pool and it was a game changer for us. Breakfast (generally in Rarotonga hotels) is limited and simple. Don't expect a fancy menu. Rent a car so you can explore the island and different beaches every day, otherwise it's really inconvenient to wait for the bus every time you want to move around the island. Don't forget to relax and enjoy the nature. Don't expect fancy stuff there or you'd be disappointed.
