Beachfront villa was nice enough, spacious. Staff were mostly friendly and helpful. Massage was great. Maintenance and cleaning good enough. Cultural night fun but buffet not a patch on the Edgewater’s last June. Resort very overpriced for the standard. Apart from the Villa that housed us well, overall it was disappointing. We cancelled the 2nd part of our holiday and booked in elsewhere. Food and breakfast very average (bacon once in 7 days). Bland and limited variety. Cooking not cheffing. Pool okay. Dirty sun beds need re-painting and too few. Beach not very usable. Simple to fix as they have done at other nearby resorts. Rocks/coral & foliage need clearing and sand raked. 3 sun beds only for use on beach and always taken so nothing to sit on. It is supposed to be a beach resort. Can’t understand why they didn’t sort all this during lockdown, ready for opening up.

This is our third stay at the Crown Beach resort and spa. Our initial suite we were taken too was by far below the standard we had come to associate with the Crown Beach resort. The initial suite we were given was not suitable for guests. The pool was full of insects, the garden was unkept and the bathroom and toilet were still unclean. When flushing the toilet the water was black. There was also an Ant problem with large ants outside and inside the suite. Contacting the front desk and asking for another room as we advised about the shortcomings of the room. Instead of offering another suite suitable, they sent the maintenance crew to try and rectify the room. Upon arrival, the maintenance team advised they will speak to the reception area as the room was not ready for guests. This took over 2 hours to complete. on 18th Feb, we were placed in forced quarantine. For 3 days we were left with no clean linen, no laundry services or any other services which we pay for. upon exit, our refund was undercalculated with the amount received being far smaller than what we paid. While isolating, the GM tried to placate our stay with a gift of cheap wine and a magazine for attractions to visit on the island.... WE WERE ISOLATING which was insensitive and frankly an insult. Overpriced for what you get in terms of quality and service provided. The ONLY saving grace was the hand-full of staff that have remained from previous stays. Very disappointed guests.

Property and service was great, food poor. My wife and I have been going to Rarotonga for the last ten years and the food on the Island has been steadily improving. Unfortunately the food at the Crown is still where it was 10 years ago.

So when we stayed here 5 Years ago it was a beautiful well Maintained resort, we ordered the Courtyard Pool Suite again and I was less than impressed with how run down these have got, including the gardens and also the general upkeep of maintenance in the Suite itself, it is so tired. For the price you pay to stay in these suites is out the gate. Also I coul never use the guest laundry after informing reception to let me know when it would be available, resort washing of towels ect. was always being done, ended up hand washing our clothes in the suite. Positive was the Bar & Restaurant staff they were awesome. This resort needs some work.
