The room was spacious and the beds comfortable. I found the pillows a little firm though. This resort has two swimming pools, both away from the water's edge so protected if it's windy. Great little pool bar with awesome cocktails. The staff are lovely and friendly and the restaurant on the grounds provided beautiful meals. Would defiantly go back again.
This resort is a bit of a hidden gem - in fact I almost don't want to advertise how great it is so we can keep it for ourselves! The main points are: beautifully kept, modern, clean rooms, lovely gardens kept to a high standard, two inviting pools, great restaurant and cocktail bar, beachfront, peaceful, child-free. The staff are exceptional. We had a poolside room and it was everything we needed - very comfortable king bed, spacious room with plenty of storage ( I like to unpack) and a well appointed kitchen if you felt like using it. (we didn't). Not far from the main centre and the bus stops right outside. We made use of the airport transfers and they were right on time, very helpful and efficient. We will definitely be back. Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing holiday.
This is our 4th time staying at Sunset and will be back for a 5th. Manager's and staff are so friendly and helpful. The resort is beautifully kept. Gardens are a credit to them. Rooms are very comfortable and has everything you would need. Having two pools are a bonus. Love the happy hour at the Birdcage. Great Cocktails. Hope to be back soon.
What a beautiful place, even through the rain it was absolutely breathtaking. Staff were so kind, knowledgeable and helpful. Watched the whales cruise along the reef from the shore with a coffee in the morning and a yummy cocktail in the evening. The room was beautifully presented, the beds and linen really comfy. Well stoked with teas and coffee and bathroom supplies. Cleaned daily. Grounds wonderfully kept, sand racked in the morning daily. Very calm soothing environment.
We had a 2 bedroom bungalow on beachside and it was awesome. Hosts Kevin & Kath are excellent and they keep the place and garens looking great. Very experienced operators ex NZ. Birdcage Happy Hour bar pools side is nice for a late arvo drink. Breakfast included at Anchorage restaurant next door. We also found the restaurant very good for casual dining.
Absolutely loved our stay at Sunset Resort…will be back again. Such friendly staff and surroundings are fantastic. Room and housekeeping everyday amazing. Miss being there. Thank you so much for making our holiday special. Craig and Jo
Our first trip overseas after Covid was brilliant. From winter to tropical summer, travel easy from NZ, the resort spruce and refreshed after two years of Covid, the staff competent and very friendly, the accommodation generous and clean, the gardens well-tended and tasteful, the pools refreshing, the restaurant welcoming and menu excellent, the beach and sunsets nourishing for the soul. The perfect holiday which encouraged us to enjoy being rather than constantly doing.
I celebrated my 40th birthday in Cook Islands with a friend for 8 nights at Sunset Resort and loved my time there. Airport pick up was a breeze. Rooms were spacious and comfortable with an outside balcony. Wifi worked well on most of the resort. Delicious fruit for breakfast, restaurant was good. 2 swimming pools right by a nice beach outside. Fresh towels were provided. Friendly staff who helped arrange sightseeing. Gardens kept immaculate with lots of flowers. Bus stop right outside the accommodation made it very convenient. Perfect place for a relaxing holiday, would definitely recommend it.
My wife and I have just completed a 7 night stay at Sunset Resort. This place is perfect for a quiet relaxing break. It's much more laid back than the bigger resorts with kids and bars that are open all day. There are a number of poolside areas where you can choose the mingle with other guests or find some quiet space to yourselves. Or there are loungers and hammocks on the beach. The location of this resort on the NW of the island offers calmer conditions. There are a couple of roosters on the Resort but everyone has those. We weren't bothered by them at all in the garden rooms around the main pool. WIFI vouchers are best bought at receptions and reception is generally good but there are "blind spots". The staff are fantastic and keen to make you stay a memorable one. Snorkelling is OK strain off the resort but better further around the island next to the Rarotongan Resort. For those looking for a friendly, quiet, relaxing holiday; you won't do better than this.…
This was my Husband and I's first trip to Rarotonga. I could not recommend Sunset Resort enough!! The staff are so lovely and friendly and so helpful, they make you feel so special! We had a blast and will definitely be coming back!!
