We stayed at the Villa Rarotonga just over the Christmas break and would definitely stay again. Only minutes walk from Black Rock a beautiful and picturesque swimming location. The hospitality by our host, Rangi made our holiday close to perfect. A very modern and private location within a 10min drive to town and minutes away from the airport. I know alot of people stay in Muri on their holiday but I would not hesitate to say that the water especially around Black Rock is too beautiful.
