Sunset Resort

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My wife has a walker and has some limited mobility. This place was great - she was able to head down to the beautiful waterfront and we enjoyed many a sunset on the deck there. We met very friendly Kiwis there. A great place to unwind. Internet, as it is across the island, is very limited and very expensive. If you are an American, this is quite different. Only 2 TV stations - like going back in a time warp! Even so, you're there to unwind. And Rarotonga is the place to do it. I was forced to unplug - and I am glad I did!! Also, the sign was down due to a storm earlier in the week. If you are go soon, look for a sign to their sister property - the Anchroage restaurant. Staff were very friendly and all of them knew me by name.
