We stayed two nights in Oct 2014 - we chose the resort because Muri Beach is the best beach Raro has to offer. The resort was just what you would expect from a resort with that many stars - good food, nice rooms, excellent pool and high prices. The room had air conditioning and a TV – the programming was...

We stayed only 2 nights as we had a specific purpose in mind to chose various locations for an important event later this year. You need to put things in perspective. Rarotonga is a small, largely unspoilt island where you can appreciate it's beauty and very friendly locals. There are no huge international hotel chains, there are no international retail...

We stayed at the Pacific Resort Rarotonga over the Christmas New Year period 2014-2015 for 10 nights and have to admit we were pleasantly surprised. We stayed in a family room, although very basic, it was comfortable. The resort grounds were magnificent, very well maintained, the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was good, getting the cooked breakfast upgrade...

Nice hotel, amazing staff which are super friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this place. It's located right on Muri lagoon with free use of snorkel and kayaking gear. Happy with there complimentary breakfast. The pool wasn't great but used the other hotels pool just up from there. Got a car and went exploring. Best way way to see Rarotonga. Overall...

We stayed at The Pacific Resort for 5 nights after a week at The Rarotongan Resort. ( see my other reviews)... The two resorts are very different so it was a welcome change to come to the more tropical garden style of the Pacific. The standard was certainly higher than that at The Rarotongan especially the restaurants, general service and...

I travelled to Rarotonga with my sister and niece to do a reconnaissance mission to find a wedding venue and we stayed at the Pacific Resort. It was a quick trip; 4 nights and we stayed in the premium garden suite by the pool (beachfront was booked out). If you were to compare the accommodation of the Pacific Resort to...

After reading so many positive reviews prehaps our expectations were too high but we were so disappointed in our recent stay. With a very early morning flight arrival, and a young baby, we decided to book our room from the day prior to our arrival to ensure we would have the room available upon our arrival at the hotel. This...

We stayed at the Pacific resort in November 2014. The kids club is awesome and kept our 8 yr old busy and happy. We upgraded to a room by the beach & it was perfect. Thanks to the kids club for help creating a wonderful family experience.

Good family based resort. Food was okay and staff were mostly helpful and friendly. Note that the beach can be very windy and exposed in some weather so we could only spend limited time there even thou it was beautiful. Lagoon and outlying islands were awesome.

We were checked into a room that smelt of mould very badly. We were eventually moved to another room that was nicer. This is not a resort, just a hotel with a lagoon in front, minimal facilities, way too overpriced, and not of 4.5 star quality. Wi-fi was very expensive and non-existent in the room.
