Alan, the owner, and Lisa, the manager, as well as their entire staff, took excellent care of our group of 12. It was a much more pleasant experience compared to staying in a detached hotel. The beach right outside our door was stunning, the food was fantastic, and the music and atmosphere at Aro'a were amazing.

I had a fantastic time staying in Raratonga for a week. The atmosphere and live music most nights were absolutely enjoyable. The beach was amazing, and the staff went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. The best part was being able to start each day by watching the whales play outside the reef.

To be honest, the beds are a bit firm and the rooms are a bit worn out, and sometimes we had to remind the staff for beach towels or toilet paper... but let's focus on the positive things that Al, Lisa, and the amazing team are already addressing. This place is not like those generic and soulless resorts that you can find anywhere in the world. It has a cozy size with only 12 rooms, and it's located right on the beach (I mean, right on the beach!). We discovered the best snorkeling spot in Raro, which happens to be in the marine reserve just outside our doorstep. We even saw whales multiple times a day! The staff was incredibly accommodating and we had a blast. There were 12 of us and we felt completely at home. We definitely plan on coming back!

I really enjoyed the friendly greeting upon arrival at the airport. The resort itself is lovely, small, and has a fantastic bar and restaurant right on the beach. The rooms were spacious, clean, and very comfortable. The beach itself was beautiful and perfect for both leisurely walks and swimming. I definitely plan on returning in the future.

The hospitality here is excellent and the entertainment at the Shipwreck Bar is absolutely fantastic. They offer a diverse range of live performances, making it a wonderful spot to mingle with fellow travelers and locals. In terms of weather, this beach is located on the sheltered side of the island, making it perfect for swimming.
