The restaurant dinner menu in general was possibly the lowlight of the stay at the resort. Perhaps were just not fancy enough. Buffet cooked breakfast was great though.

Great staff, fabulous location, stunning villa. It’s not cheap, but great for a wonderfully relaxing Cook Islands holiday. Restaurant food good for breakfast and great for dinner. Private catering in the villa for a family lunch for 11 people was excellent.
