They have a policy to upgrade all guests to the next room tier if availability allows, which was the case. The 2 bed beachfront villa offered well equipped good sized accommodation. Air conditioning throughout the unit. Choice on the Buffet breakfast was sparse but the cooked a la carte breakfast was good and included in the room rate. We ate...

From our pick up at the airport to the sad moment of leaving again, everything was wonderful. The staff were more like friends and always very helpful. Our courtyard villa was a private haven. The grounds pool, and restaurant were all beautifully kept. We particularly enjoyed the evening entertainment at the Oceans.

My husband and I decided on Rarotonga as a wedding destination, partly from our experiences in the past and partly from peer pressure - in the end it was the best day of our lives and we couldn't have asked for better service. After a bit of research we decided that the crown beach resort would be the perfect wedding...

My husband and I had stayed in Aitutaki for 4 nights, prior to returning to Rarotonga, but the Crown Resort did not compare. We had paid the extra money for a Beachfront Villa, sadly both Villa 1 and ours (Villa 2) have no direct view of the beach because there was a 4ft high barricade positioned in front.
