What a lovely place! We stayed at RBB for 3 nights from 20-23 September. The bungalows are just wonderful. Our bungalow was a beachfront one - which was large, well appointed, and very clean and tidy. The units all seem to be quite new and very well maintained. The bed was superbly comfortable and the bathroom nice and spacious, with a large towel rack (which is important when swimming a lot!). We had a large deck with an unbeatable view, with comfortable chairs for lounging. The restaurant at the resort next door has lovely food, and the staff there were much more friendly than at other places we tried on the island.
We really enjoyed swimming out front from RBB - like taking a warm bath! The swimming is nice at this spot, in that the water is deep enough (unlike other places we tried in the Cook Islands) and the sand is very clean and sandy, rather than being stony.
We enjoyed a walk to the North on the beach, to Fruits of Rarotonga - which reportedly has excellent snorkelling. But we actually only swam out the front of the bungalows. The bungalows each have kayaks and snorkelling gear is provided. I must admit, we didn't raise enough energy to move from our deck and into the kayaks at any stage - but aim to do that next time.
Because YES YES YES! We will be back! This is a magic slice of paradise and a wonderful place to stay.
