We arrived at 7:00 A.M., after an all night flight from L.A., and the manager, Teina, graciously offered us an early check-in. He greeted us with a hug and " Welcome Home", which was exactly what we needed at that moment. The place immediately felt like home and Teina could not have been nicer. He helped us any way that...

Paradise Inn is a nice place to stay on this relaxing island. If you are arriving at the time when the bus operates, you can take bus (4 NZD) directly to Paradise Inn as one of the bus-stops is right in front, otherwise the taxi is 20 NZD. It is located at the edge of the city, offering enough privacy,...

The Paradise Inn has quickly become my home away from home. I have had a wonderful stay and greatly enjoyed this hotel. The building has a lot of character and features fantastic common rooms opening up onto a large deck overlooking the beach (fully equipped with tables, umbrellas, chairs, a hammock, and a beautiful view of the sunset each evening!)....

We stayed at Paradise Inn overnight before flying out to Auitutaki. Despite arriving at 1am, we were given a wam welcome, and Teina was extremely helpful the following morning. The property, though basic, was beautifully clean and well presented. The history of the building as an old dance hall was fascinating, and the communal area with the honesty system worked...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Paradise Inn, Rarotonga is the perfect place for travelers looking for value for money. We have 16 serviced units nestled in a peaceful location between the mountains and the sea, yet only a few minutes walk to downtown Avarua. The terrace, bar and lounge have breathtaking lagoon and ocean views and are yours for relaxing, whale watching, meeting people or enjoying a meal al fresco. A beach before the reef offers our visitors the prospect of sunbathing, a stroll along the beach, low tide reef walking and spotting starfish, coral and the small colourful reef fish that populate the lagoon. As the sun sets, enjoy a sundowner on the terrace with a drink from the last "Honesty Bar" in the South Pacific where cocktails and tall tales are the order of the evening. ... more   less
