Recent guest reviews

To attend a wedding in Rarotonga we booked a villa at the was fantastic! The villa had three bedrooms (one with a toilet and hand basin), 2 full bathrooms with amazing showers, laundry, a full kitchen and lounge - ample room for the three couples and one child staying in the villa. One of the bedrooms was on a mezzanine floor and had a four-poster bed with views of the beach! Continental breakfast was included and served in the restaurant. The resort also provided beach towels, kayaks, snorkels etc and has a kids club and swimming pool. The 'happy hour' each day in the bar was wonderful! The resort extends from the road to the beach and is beautifully landscaped with amazing plants and flowers. Across the road from the resort are a few shops, internet and hair salon. Staff at the resort are friendly and helpful. Definitely a place we would return to.

The staff here were so friendly and went out of their way to help ! Happy hour as always was "island time " happy hour and lots of fun . Food great and our Villa was perfect ! Highly recommend going for a spa treatment, it was pure luxury and girls just gorgeous. Would def go back .

Great laid back, relaxing resort. The most fantastic staff/service you could ask for. From check in with Apii to departure the whole service throughout our stay was top service. Barefoot bar staff, Bianca, Franco, Anal & the rest of the team just give you the most wonderful service, couldn't have asked for anything better. We will most definitely be returning. Missing Happy hour already and the arm weather!! :)

This was our second holiday to the Pacific Resort and we wouldn't stay anywhere else. Rarotonga feels like a second home to us and the staff at the Pacific like family! Thank you Bianca and the rest of the family for making our stay so welcoming & relaxing we loved it even more second time around! Bianca you made us laugh every night with your beautiful humour and lovely self! You and your Pacific family have a way of making your guests become family and made it hard to leave after our stay. We are planning our next trip already hope to see you all very soon. Sean, Ebony & Cooper x x

This isn't a high end hotel and as such way exceeded our expectations - spacious room(lovely flowers dotted around when we arrived) which was newly refurbished. Gardens lovely and right on the beach. Watersports available free of charge. Breakfast good - cooked items etc but continental perfectly good with plenty of choice and good coffee. Dinner also good and nice beach bar. Friendly service and shuttle service available (you need to pay but reasonable). Good location with bus stopping outside etc. Not super stylish but tropical style and very comfortable. More food/dining options would have been good. Close to other restaurant options but limited.

Lovely laid back atmosphere. I must commend the wonderful staff. In the restaurant Bianca, one of the best Maitre D's I have seen, leads a warm and efficient team. By the time we left we felt as though we had new friends. Gloria, Franco and Amal a special mention. Now the reception team were exceptional also. We received a warm welcome on arrival and throughout our visit. We were fortunate to be able to move to a lagoon villa for the last couple of nights and this was enormously appreciated. The location of Muri beach by the lagoon was stunning. I have been to Fiji, Noumea and Vanuatu but I think Rarotonga offers so much. White sands and turquoise sea on the main island, easy to get around independently. Ability to hire a car at the hotel if needed or scooter. Night market next door and a a modern cafe/art gallery and museum and exhibition of Rarotonga's history has great coffee, cabinet food and beautiful artwork, bought two "one off" Kay George silk scarves. Just loved it.

Pacific Resort is a beautiful and very relaxing resort with very friendly and helpful staff that were more than welcoming to us in our weeks stay at the Pacific. The staff at the Barefoot Bar and Restaurant, such lovely people, Franco & Anal especially kept us entertained and well hydrated thank you. We had an awesome lagoon cruise captained by Apii and his lovely co-pilot with beautiful snorkelling. We did not have any kids with us but it was great to see the kids enjoying the activities and enjoying the lagoon. Such a tranquil beautiful place to enjoy beautiful sunrises whilst having breakfast in the golden sand. Thank you to all staff that make our holiday great.

Nice resort on Muri beach- beautiful sunrises, cocktails from Sandbar, overlooking the lagoon. Kayaks and reef shoes are provided to explore the lagoon. Gardens are impressive, staff are nice and helpful. Small resort so doesn't feel crowded. Room (we stayed in standard room) was quite dark because of the luscious gardens around, feels very private because of all the vegetation though so we liked it. Meals were ok, standard resort prices. Location is great- bang in the middle of everything, a minute walk to night markets too. Thanks Team:)

We arrived mid afternoon and were greeted at the airport by the driver of the hotel shuttle with a bottle of cold water and a flower garland. Check-in at the hotel was easy and fairly quick and we were shown to our room by one of the staff. We had a beachfront room for three of us (2 adults and 1 child) and it was perfect. A little worn but clean and comfortable. We had a TV, fridge, safe, hairdryer - all the usual amenities. The bathroom was huge with a large walk-in shower and there was always plenty of hot water. There were beanbags on our patio which overlooked the sea and just in front of the patio were sunbeds that we used most of the time. Breakfast was included in the price of our room and was more than adequate - there was always bread for toast, some pastries, cereal, fruit juice and fruit plus some cold meats etc. I did see a menu for cooked breakfasts at extra cost but we were not offered this option. Lunch at the restaurant was good, not too badly priced and portions were large. Dinner was expensive when compared to eating in the food market (literally a minute from the hotel) but the hotel restaurant is a beautiful place to sit, have a meal with drinks and relax - we were never rushed. All the water-sports seemed to be included in our room price, we checked out snorkeling equipment, beach shoes, kayaks and all we had to do was sign them in and out - brilliant. All in all we all had a fantastic few days staying here doing nothing but relaxing.

The Pacific Resort was a great place to stay as an extended family. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The accomodation was good and facilities were excellent.The hotel is right on the lagoon set in beautiful gardens. The local village and market is only 5mins walk away.
