It's hard being back home after spending the last 8 days in sunny Rarotonga. We had Villa 6 (2 bedroom Beachfront Villa with private pool). Beautiful views of the sunset. Friendly staff. Awesome service. Loved the banter with Madonna and the staff at Oceans, Ngametua, the ladies at the Front Desk, and of course Cy 🐈 and Barbie 🐕. Loved...

This was our sixth visit to Crown Beach Resort. We absolutely love staying here, Our Happy Place, and being on the West of the Island the sunsets are amazing. Since our last visit in November, staff morale was low and the resort did not have a good vibe but now that a change has been made it was so great...

Crown Beach is the best place ever. This was the 1st time we had been to Rarotonga. The staff, food & location couldn't be faulted. We stayed in a 1 bedroom villa. March is not a busy time so the Resort was quiet. We made the most out of the activities the Resort offered & spent a bit of time...

Rarotonga is the secret gem of the South Pacific, and the Crown Beach has to be one of the best resorts on the Island. It is perfectly located, has great facilities and best of all a wonderful, friendly staff. We stayed in one of the 1 BR villas that was clean, plenty large enough and centrally located. You can't go...

This holiday to Rarotonga in general and the Crown Beach Resort in general would be a highlight of my travels.

We stayed at Crown the last week of March on the first leg of our honeymoon. The resort is beautiful with well kept gardens and a nice beach perfect for watching the sunset. We were consistently impressed with the quality of the food, we ate breakfast each morning at Oceans and the homemade yogurt was delicious. The staff is always...
