Perfection! Highly recommended! Surely the most beautiful architectural design-stunning beachfront villas overlooking an infinity pool. Perfectly located for sheltered water sports, restaurants, convenience store, car rental. Staff impeccable and genuinely lovely.

This small resort was top notch!!! My husband, myself and another couple stayed for 5 nights and it was fantastic. Beautiful villas and gardens, great service and right on Muri Beach. We would highly recommend staying here. We will definitely return!

Everything about staying at Te Vakaroa was 5 star. The apartment was absolutely wonderful. The staff were friendly and the layout of the apartments meant you had great privacy and there was plenty of room. The design of the place was perfect for two couples to share.

Thank you very much for your encouraging review. I am amazed how popular our new daybed pods are beside the pool and it looks like I will have to buy some more. We are always trying to improve the property and make it more enjoyable for our guests and getting positive feedback makes it all worthwhile. Thanks again Nick Reeves

This was our first visit to The Cook Islands and we could not have been more pleased with our stay at Te Vakaroa Villas. The friendliness of the staff and attention to detail were incredible.

We came to Rarotonga for a relaxing 10 days in the sun. Night one was loud music until 12:30am after a long flight which ended in us calling the police. Night two was an All Blacks rugby game which the police wouldn't even attend. Night three a party. The owner would not take responsibility at all, actually telling us it...

Thank you for review. The unfortunate aspect of this negativity is that it was all due to a few selfish people operating a bar without any regard for the law or the people in the surrounding area. The bar is neither a sports bar or a nightclub. It is a very small area on the deck of Sails Restaurant which...
