We stayed at the Reef Motel because of its proximity to a wedding venue we were checking out. It also is close proximity to the airport. We were very happy with the accommodation. Unfortunately the weather wasnt the best but we felt safe in our room whilst the wind blew and it poured with rain!!!
The staff were friendly
The fact we had asked in advance to be picked up from airport and nobody came...we had to find our own way at 2am... linen wasn't changed until the day we left...,we were there for 7 days
Didn’t have any so I wouldn’t know
The taxi driver ripping me off
Good location for the airport if you’re stopping over for a couple of nights but not the best place for long stay in Raro. Big room, well equipped, large bathroom. Short walk from the Blackrock Beach (less than 1 min).
Basic finish and expensive for the standard offered. Staff never on site so all communication done by email. Not much around apart from beautiful beach. Shower only suitable for short people (below 175cm).
We had a beachfront villa, lovely sea views and private beach..bus stop at gate, established gardens.
Washing machine pretty old and dated, only 1 for all the units to share. Rooms pretty basic, with AirConditioning unit above the bed being old, disconnected, so not working .
With a stay at The Reef Motel in Rarotonga (Arorangi), you'll be a 4-minute walk from Black Rock and a 2-minute drive from National Stadium. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
