Excellent Raro escape.
Small hotel but by far one of if not the best spots to be on Raro. Updated bathrooms are awesome. Staff is amazing you should stop reviewing and book it. You do have to pay for WiFi but it is strong.

A wonderful little gem on Rarotonga. The entire staff was very friendly, starting from the warm welcome (at 7am) all the way to departure. The food was outstanding. A perfect place to relax! Complimentary kayaks, paddle boards, fins, masks and snorkels.

Will Definitely Return
Cannot describe the feeling of waking up with a view of the ocean right in front! The Little Polynesian has beautiful rooms and outstanding service in a peaceful setting. We found the snorkeling right in front of the hotel to be the best we experienced in Raro.

Top Five in the world!
Absolutely fantastic, period. We've stayed at many luxury resorts around the world, but this has been one of the best hotels I've ever been to. From the amazing location, the great service, very nice people, as well as the rooms themselves, this is probably the best value for the price I've ever had. If you are going to the Cook Islands, this is the hotel you want to stay at regardless of expense.
