Crown Beach Resort & Spa

Rarotonga is a place without any world class hotel and to find the four best places to stay was quite a challenge. When looking at the highest rates and best reviews Crown Beach Resort & Spa came up as one of of the choices and I was excited to see how good it could be.

I arrived early in the hotel where they gave me a drink before being escorted to the room. I stayed in a standard villa, but it was far from the standards I’m used to in the worlds best hotels. There is destinations in the world without truly great hotels and Rarotonga seems to be one of them.

Internet is charged 3 NZD pr. 10 MB, but this is standard in Rarotonga and there is nothing to do about it.

The service level was in general fine. The staff was friendly and food OK. Some Tripadvisor reviews said it was unforgettable for them, but for me it was one of the most forgettable hotels.

Overall it can be a good choice for many, but based on my four experiences in Rarotonga there definitely is better options.

My opinion: Good experience.
