    • Upgraded and staff super friendly

      I absolutely love this place. Elyn was really helpful. They upgraded my fianc and I to a two bedroom apartment. The added bread, fruit and milk a nice touch. Elyn and her staff also sang me happy birthday and gave me a cake for my birthday. I love that these apartments are close to Muri but away from all the hustle. There is a full fridge and washing machine and a lovely pool. I will be back. Thank you again for the lovely stay

    • Fantastic setting, but our trip was marred but deteriorating apartments

      Reviewed 06 April 2019

      We love Avana, have been here 7/8 times previously,but noted a steady decline. They are trying to update which is great, and have done a fantastic job with the pool area, but we had poor weather and a couple of terrific storms which led to a couple of nights bailing out our leaking rooms :( First night it poured in from just around the windows, the second the roof !! We lost water pressure and then totally for a while. When it came back it was brown ! These things happen I believe after bad storms Elyn the new manager is very helpful and is great. We also had a wedding party in (which is no fault of Avana) Who were particularly horrible, noisy and rude and monopolized the jetty with fishing of all things, which obviously did not allow for any other guest to snorkel or use the jetty, even after asking nicely. We were very kindly moved to another apartment further away from them. We love Avana for its quiet and stunning location, and they are trying to improve/update the rooms but a new roof is definitely needed on apartment 1.But sadly this trip everything seemed against us, and too many negatives have led us to seriously rethink returning again.

    • Great place to stay in Rarotonga

      Reviewed 16 October 2018

      We lived in Rarotonga for a couple of years some time ago and this was the fifth time that I have returned. Avana Waterfront Apartments were clear frontrunners compared with the other places in which we have stayed (including some of the major resorts). There were four of us on the trip. My wife and I had a single room and our daughter and son in-law had the room next door. Both rooms were clean and very well kitted out for our stay. The view from the balcony was wonderful and, as there are a limited number of rooms and therefore guests, there was a strong feeling of space and easy access to all amenities throughout our 8 day stay. Take a kayak to Muri beach, have brunch and explore the empty beaches on neighbouring islands on the way back. Our host, Elyn, is especially worthy of mention. She couldn't have been more efficient, friendly or helpful. She was backed up in her role with high quality, friendly staff. I will definitely try to stay here again on another trip to Rarotonga. My only regret in writing this review is that it may become harder to book a place.

    • Fabulous family holiday destination

      Reviewed 16 October 2018

      We were looking for accomodation for a 4 generational extended family of 12 members. Avant Waterfron Apartments more than met requirements and expectations. We had two three bedroomed apartments. These and a bathroom upstairs and downstairs and the master bedroom had magnificent views. The apartments had spacious living areas, were very clean, and serviced every second day. The staff were incredibly hard working, friendly and helpful. The location is perfect - private but close to Muri and the attractions there. There were kayaks and snorkelling gear readily available, and the pool was beautifully maintained. The BBQ area was used most nights. Every member of our group had a wonderful time, there was something for everybody. We swam, snorkelled, kayaked, walked, ate, mountain biked, went on a lagoon cruise, had a diving experience and fished, catching yellow finned tuna. The jetty was a great magnet and a place to watch and feed the fish. All in all, we can't recommend it enough.

    • Great place for a family holiday

      Reviewed 16 September 2018

      These apartments are a great option for a self-contained holiday in Rarotonga. The Apartments are well kitted out, although our one (apt 2) only had solar hot water which was no good on 2 days that were very cloudy and raining. Our friend's apartments all had solar plus gas heating and plenty of hot water. The snorkeling and fishing from the jetty are good - although you can not eat the fish caught inside the reef due to toxins - so all catch and release. Still plenty of fun for the kids however. The best snorkeling we felt was where you swim with the Turtles. The kids spent heaps of time in the pool also. The staff were great - very helpful. They service your apartment every 3 days which seems about right. We brought most of meat, cereals, snack food etc from NZ with us which was good as some stuff is very expensive in Rarotonga - other items are fine. Other activities we did were whale watching, fishing with Marlin Queen, swam with the turtles, lots of snorkling and walked across the island via the 'Needle'. Overall the Apartments are really good and a nice place to stay - recommended!
