Super comfy bed, huge shower, continental breakfast included
Was a little noisy with people checking in and out at odd hours
Breakfast perfectly satisfactory. Location perfect for us (we have stayed at Moana Sands twice before and knew what to expect). Great to have kayaks and snorkling gear available, as well as clothes washing facilities.
The location on the lagoon was perfect. The breakfast was sufficient which included fresh fruit and good muesli. All the staff were very friendly and very helpful. The room was spacious and the bed very comfortable. There was lots of snorkelling equipment in good order to use. The bus stopped just across the road and there was a car and bike hire place 5 mins walk away.
My only suggestion would be to have some mattresses on the sun loungers to improve the comfort for lounging all day :)
complimentary continental breakfast. fresh bananas available all day. Fantastic lagoon views from all the rooms. Free snorkling equipment (some of which needs updating!) The most amazing snorkling right off the beach!!!! Very handy location to other beaches, restaurants, activites etc. They have a bookshelf where you can donate or borrow books. Good shuttle service to/from airport
-I returned my broken mask to reception, only to find it had been put back outside for use, still broken -Moana advised us to hire our scooter from Avis but be aware that it must be returned before 3pm saturday, they arent open on a sunday nor do they pick up the scooter from the hotel i.e. generally inconvenient!!
Hotel is in a great location right on the beach and not far from shops. It has a great restaurant attached and is not far from other great eating spots including the night markets.
With a stay at Moana Sands Beachfront Hotel in Rarotonga (Tapere of Titikaveka), you'll be a 3-minute drive from Muri Beach and 9 minutes from Aroa Beach. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, dry cleaning/laundry services, and luggage storage. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
