4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed for 3 nights. The room I had with a small pool and courtyard was lovely, clean and well appointed. The bathroom was especially nice. The courtyard provided privacy and a relaxing area in the afternoons to read and sunbathe. The facilities were nice and the food was fresh, well prepared and tasty, and well priced. The staff were friendly and easygoing. I would definitely stay again and would I would recommend to others.

We spent five nights here. Overall we enjoyed our stay in a peaceful environment. Has a really nice pool area but we preferred the beach and lagoon. Breakfast was a good mix of hot and cold foods that varied daily. Housekeeping staff did a good job of keeping the room serviced. The Warrior at the activities hut was really knowledgeable and funny when he took a group of us for a low tide reef walk. An asset to the resort. We had lunch at oceans restaurant which was really nice. However our last evening meal here was absolutely horrible. We both ordered scallops in coconut crepes but the crepes were more like barely cooked pasta sheets and my wife's were inedible. We managed to get at half price thanks to the ladies at reception. $32 for something so bad is not good and hopefully some retraining will take place.Also had issues with the washing machine ( doesn't spin water out fully and the dryer had barely any heat after half an hour. Thankfully the lovely ladies in the laundry took my washing dried it in their drier folded it and sent it back to our room. LEGENDS. Reported prob to reception and they were aware of the prob. Our room villa 18 was nice but the bathroom is looking really tired. Wi-Fi is expensive to purchase at reception $45for 1 gig when you can buy 3 gig from blue sky for $30. Would we go back? Possibly.

We recently celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at Crown Beach. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of villa 24 with its own private pool. All staff were very welcoming friendly and accommodating from reception, Oceans activities, house keeping, security. We really appreciated the surprise of champagne being left in the villa in acknowledging our anniversary. The beach and facilities were perfect for a relaxing holiday and nice to be on the west of the island to enjoy no wind and beautiful sunsets. Oceans restaurant and bar were perfect for us - next visit we will try Flambe. We will definitely be back and would recommend to anyone planning to visit Rarotonga.

Crown beach resort Absolutly loved it didnt wana leave all the staff an locals wer so helpfull an fab spesh rose for the love an smiles evry morning...flambe has amazing food wuld definitly go silence f the lamb again will have a nice CHIANTI with it next time😆

Great place by the sea for sunset cocktails. Right on the beach so you can just walk along the beach from your accom. Food is also available and they have an island night buffet but we missed this. Great place for a drink while watching the sun set.

A great location good and the staff were awesome. Really friendly and helpful. Gardens beutiful and a great layout. However resort a bit tired. Shower water almost impossible to control. Breakfast pretty average and often cold and coffee machine out of action.

Very Friendly staff, Good service, Very Average food. Island night buffet had to wait a bit for the food running 45 minutes late meant to have dinner at 6 didn't end up having till 6:45. Not good if you have a night flight!

We enjoyed the Crown apart from we had no hot water first night and they told us it would be fixed next day. 9am following night they moved us but not until we kicked up a fuss. So we were disappointed with this service. Breakfast was nothing to rave about and even ran out of maple syrup . The ladys reply when asked was sorry ran out and you cant always get what u want. However it was a nice quite resort but i think u could get better.

This is a nice resort that has great sunset views and a little beach of its own . The rooms are big in the villa with kitchenette provided with all basic things to make your own meals . They have very helpful staff which tries to make your stay comfortable . They do need to change their mattresses which are too soft as have been for usage over the years . The travellers must ensure their flights timings and check out timings of the resort have gap that the management seeks for late stay upto $ 300.00 ! The fans make noise even at slow speed and seems like some one drumming through the night when there is silence all around !

we arrived end of may beginning of june on arrival we were greeted with a cocktail and friendly smiles easy book in all explained really very well.lovely gentleman helped with our luggage and welcomed us into our beachfront villa.villa layed out really nicely having everything we needed including small but welcome pool outside .a few steps and we were in the water on the beach.beautiful oceans restaurant very helpful friendly staff!!! must not forget the cat (cy)if we get the chance in the future would love to come back again.recommend to anyone
