      Beautiful place with a fantastic atmosphere. Small & personal - everyone felt like they were friends. The couple owning Aro'a Beachside Inn and ALL their staff members were SO friendly. We felt completely at home and special. All the other residents there felt like friends. Couldn't have asked for more.

      I loved my stay at Aroa Beachside Inn - from the late evening airport pickup and drop off right to my front door, the great layout of my villa including a separate area for suitcases and clothes hanging, excellent shower water pressure, well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, good lighting, warm welcome from Steve and Geraldine at breakfast the next morning including Steves guide to activities, where to go & eat out, what to see etc, the bus stop right at the entrance, gorgeous Stephanie making pina coladas at the bar right on the beach, the stunning sunsets and of course Dexter, the resident golden retriever!

      What a lovely spot this is. Right on the beach, sunsets at night and wonderful staff who really look after you. We wanted somewhere to relax and unwind and this is the perfect place to do it. Our room was very clean and had everything we needed. Serviced every day by the friendly staff. Breakfast in the morning was just right with local fruits, a nice warm muffin and help yourself to toast and toppings - all on the beach or up at the Shipwreck Bar (don't miss omelettes on Sunday morning, something very different). Loved how Steve explained everything we needed to know about the Aro'a Inn and also things to do on the island. His suggestions were very helpful, especially about watching the planes land which we did twice LOL. Steve is also an excellent singer who performed on the BBQ night when we were there but I believe he also does accompany artists on other nights. We went to all the musical evenings and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and beautiful sunsets. You have to try one of the cocktails with are served in a glass jar which suits the shipwreck theme of the bar. You can't miss the BBQ night, the food is great and good social "get together". All staff were happy to help you in what ever way they could with bookings for restaurants or shows or just with some further advice. Steve and Geraldine even stood and waved goodbye as we left. A nice touch and a little thing but much appreciated. We cant finish this review without also thanking Stephanie for all her help, support and humour. She is a real credit to the Inn and when Steve and Geraldine had to go away for a couple of days she looked after us all as if we were family. She is always smiling, makes you feel special and takes time to talk to you. Thank you Steve, Geraldine, Stephanie and all the other staff for making our time on Rarotonga peaceful and relaxing. We will certainly stay with you again when we return.
