We never checked in due to covid and when asked for a refund we where advised there was no cases of covid in the cook islands. Our airfares and transfers where refunded in full with no questions asked. I suggest the hotel do the same as we will not be going to this hotel should we decided to rebook the cook islands at a later date

Due to low occupancy rate because of Covid -19 the resort didn’t offer all services which sucked for the few of us that were stuck there. They also did not offer a credit for a lot of unused accommodation that did not get used because we had to leave early.
