Unhappy Happy Hour !!!
Great resort lovely large rooms, we only had 2 negatives and no 1 was happy hour at the birdcage, they have thet sourest lady there each nite who makes you feel you are a total nuisance to her, no eye contact, and then finally, what do you want!!! We spoke to other guests who all agreed, we went to another happy hour in another resort most nite to avoid this unhappy happy hour, and the 2nd which is very minor when you are there 10 nites and have to listen to the same tape from the restaurant every day when you are vy the pool and as was in our case from our room a change would be nice... That said otherwise very nice quiet resort..

Amazing place
Stayed here 6 nights in room 8 two bedroom apartment and was fantastic. Could sit and just watch the sea and as to the sunsets brilliant. Has 2 pools which are great to relax in with perhaps a cocktail or two.

Accommodation was excellent, restaurant top class, beach setting great (saw 2 whales), general area attractive and the pool was tempting.Staff were very helpful and we found a range of things to do.This was our second stay which tells a story..

Very enjoyable and wonderful service
We very much enjoyed our 2 night stay at Sunset Resort in February, 2018. We like smaller resorts and this was perfect for us. We found the service outstanding and the food very good. We loved the fact that the resort allowed us to use reef shoes and mask/snorkel at no charge. The bus stop is just at the end of the road leading into the resort, so it's very convenient. We were able to walk to a nearby restaurant one night. We'd definitely return here if we find ourselves in the Rarotonga again.

Beautiful Gardens
Very comfortable rooms with quiet A/C. Beautiful pools and gardens. The breakfast was okay but little change in variety offered during our ten day stay. Easy to access bus to tour island or venture out for the day. Close to restaurants and a fabulous bakery across the road, very handy for lunches.
