Great friendly place on lovely beach
Loved our stay @ Aroa in all respects. Room on the beach great & our front balcony amazing for watching the water at any time of day. Shipwreck hut bar provided a good spot for breakfast & dinner every day. Steve playing his tunes for ur on 2 nights was a fun bonus. Thanks to all for all arrangements & in fact everything. See you again we hope.

8/10 Very good

The beach bar menu was limited in selection of food. The TV in room did not work properly. 3 channels of snow. Even if it did work it was tiny and 6 feet above the floor. Lounge chairs in unit very uncomfortable. All units came with built in alarms. The roosters crowed from dawn to dusk. Five stars plus for the staff, grounds and location.

The friendly smaller nature of the property and the personal service that comes with that - quite apart from its stunning location right on the Aroa lagoon

10/10 Exceptional

Spent 2 weeks in Rarotonga and the week at Aroa beachside was the highlight hard to summarise as so much to commend, the snorkelling just outside the resort was great, watching the whales breach at breakfast unforgettable, the room was spacious clean and comfy. The hosts Steve and Geraldine and their staff so helpful and informative, the music nights the best on the island and can Steve sing AWSOME...highly recommend. Will be going back.☺️👍☺️

Location was beautiful, right on the beach, on the sheltered side of the island. Accommodation was spacious and well appointed. All units faced the beachfront. Added bonus was the Shipwreck Inn where breakfast was served and at 5pm, drinks and dinner were available also. Friendly and helpful staff as well. Great stay!
