    Second time in Rarotonga, but first time at Tiare Village. Whaea Adrienne, who is the property manager was also an AMAZING hostess. Her and her husband were very welcoming upon arrival. The whole atmosphere had a GREAT sense of relaxation and true holiday experience. I loved how town was also in walking distance if you wanted to take a nice sunny walk. I recommend this village to stay at but also anywhere on the island. Ngā mihi nui rawa ki a koutou te iwi o Rarotonga, ki a Whaea Adrienne hoki

    We were welcomed with a smile, greetings and a gift of a gardenia necklace by one of Tiare Village staff at the airport. Unfortunately Jetstar forgot our luggage in NZ and Adrienne gave us a lift into town the next day to purchase clothes and what we needed for our stay in Raro. She is very informative and accommodating The room was simple, tidy and had screens on the windows, to keep any unwanted guess out 😁 For the price we paid what got so much out of our stay. It was so relaxing 💃🌴🍹☝️

    Adrienne is super hospitable, making us feel at home and going out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. The room was basic but comfortable and the property offered us affordable accommodation so we still had plenty to us for activities and attractions.

    Near back side of airport, long walk from airport entrance, needs taxi to/from airport 15NZD one way if you have baggage or its night as there are no street lights. >700m from bus stop on ring road. No laundry facilities on site, towel extra charge, limited hours available staff on site. Internet charged extra and is very expensive.A local SIM might be better value. Room spacious and clean, kitchen and fridge available. Lady who runs place looked busy and rushed and not really to give info.

    Worse experience in Rarotonga - no bus, dark road to walks and expensive taxi - really bad bed - The sounds of the plane is really hard plus the sound of the chickens so is really hard to sleep - you share the fan with the other room - you can smell everything from the kitchen - the person working in the place is SUPER RUDE. - full of mosquitos No recomiendo este lugar. La cama es muy incomoda, es extremadamente ruidoso, difícil acceso, mosquitosy personal extremadamente grosero.
