We had such a wonderful time at the Avana Apartments. There is so much fun stuff to do in Rarotonga, but we happily spent most of our time at the apartments: lounging by the pool, dozing on the loungers, tropical fish-watching off the jetty in front of our apartment, gobbling delicious local food (in particular the fresh tuna caught by...

I've just had a week at Avana with my family. It included my wife and me our daughters and their husbands and our grandchildren. What a great place to relax. The pool, the coconuts to open and drink from and eat, the kayaks to explore in, the coconut palms for the kids to climb, the fish off the jetty, the...

We booked a studio room without aircon and felt with the ceiling fan and windows open we had a nice airy room with a great view over the lagoon from the balcony which was decked out with some traditional sun loungers and table and chairs for our convenience. The mozzy coils provided ensured we could sit outside at dawn and...

This facility was everything we needed. Pool was a must and was well maintained. Free use of kayaks but with limited range of life jackets, BBQ x2 and friendly staff. If the office was closed on your arrival there was a clearly understood sign on your apartment. Very easy to mix and converse with your neighbours or remain separate. If...

Hi Andrew and families, thank you that you celebrate the 60th birthday with us. Toddlers and young kids, the parents really need on guard specially if there is swimming pool and open sea. Yes, our place is the pantry of the local people here in Rarotonga known for fishing, collecting shell, sea urchins etc. Meitaki maata :)

wonderful spot, close to Muri and not to far from the main centre of town. All the apartments are close to the water with great views up the harbour and over to the island. Great BBQ area that was used by all the guests but was always clean and with gas. Desiree and her staff were amazing. Desiree made a...

A large group of us (10 kids and 8 adults) stayed at Avana Waterfront Apartments a week or so ago for 10 nights. We stayed in 4 x 2-bed units and a studio. We all really enjoyed our stay and would go back in a heartbeat... The pool was perfect for the kids, they spent hours (literally) splashing around and...

Excellent spot right on the beach. On site swimming pool is fantastic. The apartments are very well laid out and have pretty much all that you need. A couple of them have older bathrooms which could maybe do with a revamp, but not complaining really. Was a great place to stay, Desiree the manager is fabulous and can't do enough...

Loved our stay at Avana Apartments. Desiree was really helpful with advice on things to do and also arranging rental car etc. This is a very peaceful beachfront place, comfortable and also has a lovely pool. Use of kayaks was appreciated. Roberta.

This was our 3rd visit to Rarotonga and our first stay here. We enjoyed feeding the myriad of tropical fish on the pier, wasn't really suitable for swimming in the sea but the pool was great and having the option of an air conditioner was a real treat (something we did on our last night). There are lots of trees...
