Family of 3 with a 3 yr old. Thoroughly enjoyed our 4 days at the Rapopo Resort. The restaurant and reception staff were very helpful and responsive to any request we made. The food was lovely and we asked a couple of times for sandwiches or snacks for our 3 yr old and this was no trouble. The resort is as eco friendly as possible and supports the local community with a daily free shuttle to the town marketplace where there is an abundance of local produce and craft. The room was clean and air conditioned, and good size. Small fridge and tea and coffee making facilities. There is an aviary with colorful birds that are free to come and go. The pool area is lovely and clean and relaxing for all, with a swim up bar or juice shop as our 3yr old called it (although this wasn't open when we were there) with in the pool stools. The grounds are lush and green and the beach perfect for the kids to play at with clear water that we took our 3yr out in with goggles and saw so many fish. I saw photos of the Resort set up for weddings and it looks amazing it would be the perfect spot for it. Rabaul-Kokopo Dive is located in the Resort and they have a lot of activities on for the whole family. We can highly recommend the Dolphin feeding, this isn't actually feeding the dolphins but going out in the boat to the area the dolphins feed at and getting in the water and swimming with them. For those that are interested the tour to the WWII tunnels is so interesting and we did this with the 3yr old and he loved having the torch and leading the way. The trek to the volcano is a must. We went to the base with the 3yr old and the hot springs but they do trek all the way up and in the volcano but I wouldn't recommend it for the small kids as it is a bit treacherous. The employees of Rabaul-Kokopo Dive were fantastic and so so knowledgeable well worth booking in with them, we plan to take more of their activities when we return next. My suggestions for those with kids, take torches and when you go to dinner at night you will hear the frogs and you can go spotting them while waiting for your food, take mosquito repellent, the Resort does do the fogging but there are sand flies also, but not too bad. Take goggles and snorkels and a pool noodle, our 3yr snorkeled with us out on the reef with his life jacket on, goggles and holding on to a pool noodle and putting his face in the water, he loved it and was in there for around 30min and would have stayed longer, you can do this off the beach at the Resort too. Take sand toys. There are supermarkets not too far away if you have a car. This really is a great place to stay, how many Resorts have an owner walking around talking to guests each day checking in that everything is alright with your stay and chatting about anything you are interested in. Also, before leaving the resort to fly out, ask the reception staff to make sure your flight is on time, it is a definite to do as you would rather be waiting at the resort then the airport and flights can be delayed or cancelled.

The Resort is absolutely beautiful and amazing. The scenic view is breath taking, you have the pool and beach right at your door step with a lot of fun activities to get up to during the day. Got Matupit Island to the far NW, especially in the evening when the shade creeps in, somehow everything big looks somewhat small, silent & calm. Such a relaxing place to put your mind at ease. Food is local with a twist of foreignity cuisine, definitely nothing the buds would detest. But my and the highlight that made my stay home away from home was the workers.. They truly get out of their way to make your stay welcoming and as comfortable as possible. They got big hearts and those great warm smiles always there with an extending hand to guide. My sincere gratitude to them as it was my first ever solo trip to a new place but for some unknown reason I just felt at ease. Bad part of it all was my trip was too short but very memorable. I would recommend he resort the 'it' ideal spot to anyone and everyone who visits Rabaul or planning a getaway. Make Rapopo your first stop destination weather riding solo, with friends or your whole family. Thankyou Darryl and team, you make my vaca worth while. Lavinia Leme.

Went to eat lunch in the middle of a work day, and it was the best, most fresh food I have had in East New Britain. The view was stunning, and we are already planning to return before we are done in Kokopo.

Breathtaking views, go a room overlooking the pool,the suites are very roomy, no mod cons here, but there is something wrong if your inside not outside. Wait staff do leave you alone , fine line between being attentive or not. Management friendly ! Clean and when asked will do their best to keep you accommodated. Cheers Rapopo !
