    Comfortable & convenient stay in Avarua, Raratonga

    Our one-night stay was very comfortable. Our downstairs room was spacious and we had exclusive use of the bathroom. The communal lounge area was also very comfortable. Thibault met us at the airport and was very helpful with information and checking in. The staff were friendly. Breakfast was excellent. We had a very nice lunch at the Lazy Trout restaurant attached to the hotel. The hotel is located less than10 minutes walk from the bus stop at Cook's Corner and other areas, such as the markets and Trader Jack's were also within walking distance. We were also transferred back to the airport next day.
