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)

Second time staying here. Spa on site, newly installed pool, steps away from lovely beach with great snorkeling, picture perfect view from balcony, small supermarket across the road very handy for drinks, villa well equipped and comfortable.

Moana Sands is always a good choice if you want 2 bathrooms and bedrooms. Always clean, staff are friendly. Location is beachfront with good snorkeling and across the road from a good size store. It is a true apartment with heat pumps. A good choice although a bit more expensive this time than in March.

Booking was confused. We were given an apartment 1 bath instead of 2. The host would not believe us when we said booking was wrong and we had to find papers to prove it. Unfortunately, they had no villas for 2 nights so we had to make do. Otherwise both places were great.

Fab apartment stay
In February 2018 we stayed in Apt 602. A 2 bedroom 1 bathroom upstairs beachfront apartment. Good swimming right in front of the property. The grounds and beach were raked daily. Free kayaks to explore the lagoon Located opposite is Wigmores store that had all our daily needs and a burger joint attached. cafe called Coco Latte in the same complex as Moana Sands (unfortunately closed the week we were there for annual holidays) the good local ‘Vaima’ restaurant is a 3 minute walk up the road or beach Petra in reception was very helpful and knowledgeable and checked us in efficiently The apartment was clean, comfortable and spacious. Insect screens on all the windows and doors meant we could have natural ventilation, the airconditioning the couple of times we used it was efficient Fully equipped kitchen means you can cook if you want. French press for your morning coffee. Instant coffee tea milk juice and fruit supplied to get you started As with all Rarotongan accommodation there is no free wi if but reception sell a variety of Blue Sky vouchers, the strength in the rooms was ok but much stronger out the front. You can use these hotspots all round the island The only slight negative is that there is no entry way as such to dry off when you come in from the beach so remember to leave some towels at the door Highly recommended would stay here again

I stayed in one of the two 1 bedroom studios which are side by side on the ground floor. The only downside was the telephone didn't work and you could hear every sound including footsteps from the 2 bedroom villa above. I was moved to a top floor 2 bedroom villa after 3 nights and finally got a decent sleep for my final 3 nights. But workmen arrived to work in villa below and for 2 days there was noise of banging and drills Although the villa was new looking the bottom drawer in kitchen that held pots and pans couldn't be opened. I accessed it by taking out the drawer above. The electric jug's lid didn't open so you had to fill it from the spout. There was food stuck to some of the cooking utensils and cutlery. Two empty coke bottles under the sofa which I discovered when looking for the missing TV remote control. DVD player didn't work. Sheet on bed terribly stained. Squashed tomato and nuts on balcony floor. And someone's underpants were on shelf in the studio. Nice new bath and beach towels. Staff very friendly. Eventually got a replacement remote control and DVD player. Location excellent. Supermarket across road, nice beachfront. Good for families.
