We had 5 nights in a 2 brm villa (upstairs) and were very impressed with the spacious layout, tasteful decor and large covered verandah with a daybed overlooking the pool area and beach. Full kitchen (including blender), laundry facilities etc. Beautiful lush gardens. Complimentary pickup from airport with fresh flower leis by very friendly helpful Chad. On first evening after...

Kia orana and thank you for your review. I am very pleased you had a nice stay with us and I apologise that you didn't find the towels under the vanity in all bathrooms. We appreciate it can be warm and we always provide extra towels. I will make sure the staff are informed and show all guests the towel...

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...

Te Vakaroa Villas have yet again impressed us. This is a stunning property and we especially love the new pool upgrade and the glorious new sun-beds around the pool, this is truly a luxurious place to visit and unwind.

We spent 5 nights with a couple of friends in a 2 bedroom villa. From the moment we woke up on our first morning we were just in complete relax mode, the complimentary breakfast of delicious croissants and fruits - and delicious cook island coffee just really set us up for a fantastic time.

Kia orana Thank you for your review, we are always pleased to hear from our valued guests and appreciate all feedback. We have worked hard to make the property feel like an Oasis once you come through the front gate. Guests are always surprised to see the variety of tropical plants and hidden fish ponds around the garden, we try...

After being hugely disappointed with the first villa I had booked further up the road, we were fortunate to find availability at Te Vakaroa Villas.

The service from the management and staff was excellent. Very helpful The rooms was very spacious, modern, very clean. Very nice shops/cafés very near by. The burger bar across the road is very good Just wish the pool was heated as was a bit too cold to swim.

Kia Orana and thank you for your review. I would love to heat the pool somehow but it is difficult due to the high cost of gas and the lack of area for a solar system. We have a large gas heated Jacuzzi to provide an area to sit and enjoy the view while having a drink which is a...

We stayed for a week and thought that the villas were well furnished and well equipped, so we're not disappointed in that respect. We had a downstairs apartment and one drawback was that while their was a small lawn in front of us and good views of the ocean, other guests would set themselves up around the pool virtually outside...
