Lovely property in a great position, friendly helpful staff too. It would have been great to have a broom so we could sweep the sand up that found it’s way inside and our unit was only cleaned once in 8nights so we ran short of towels and had sand all through on the tiles even though we tried to keep it out. A refillable water container in the room would have been handy so we didn’t have to buy plastic bottles to refill at the water station. Otherwise a super stay! Thanks heaps :)

Exceeded expectations
Great location (across from large grocery store & gas station that are open 24x7. Units are large with all items one would need for a comfortable family holiday. Nice pool and beach is steps away with free water toys (kayaks, snorkeling equipment, water shoes). Breakfast at Coco Latte (attached to hotel) was very good. Service was nice as was the hotel spa. Internet access across the island is a challenge but managed to get a decent signal in the hotel as there is a Hotspot close by. Rental car agency (go cook islands) across the street so you don't have to rely on the bus (stops right at the hotel)

Comfortable villas in amazing location right on the beach. Super friendly staff that goes way and beyond. Very convenient supermarket across the road. My only quibbles are that the rooms are a bit dated and also no restaurant onsite although there is a little cafe which is open for breakfast and light lunch only.
