“Idyllic destination with perfect accommodation for our family reunion”
Reviewed 16 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

Coral sands was a perfect choice of accommodation for our extended family reunion consisting of 4 individual families, totalling 16 guests from 2 generations (youngest 16- oldest 60). The 4 x 1 bedroom apartments suited the parents of the group whilst the the 2 x 3 bedrooms were perfect for the cousins. The apartments were clean (the actual appartments were not cleaned daily but towels etc were changed as required), well maintained and equipped for self catering, and the BBQ area was fantastic for family dinners after a very rewarding fishing trip. The hosts Bob and Karen were extremely helpful in transfers to and from the airport and flexible with check in and check out based on the times of our flights from Sydney, they were also a wealth of local knowledge, tips and advice. The property is beach front, but can't be seen from individual apartments, you can swim snorkel and kayak however there are much better areas for these activities further round the Island. There is a convenience store within 2 mins walk and larger supermarkets a little further away there are also a few nice restaurants and bars for sunset drinks in walking distance . Our group hired a minibus, car and scooters for transportation at very minimal prices but there is a local bus service that goes both ways around Rarotonga that will get you to and from other places of interest.

Relaxed journey through customs meet two bright cheerful people Bob and Karen even though it was 1.45am
We drove to a place known on the Island as The Whitehouse (part of Coralsands on the same residence of the owners)
Our family stayed in the very private self contained holiday apartment with use of the swimming pool - snorkelling gear or a lazy time in deckchairs by the pool also use of the BBQ discovered BBQ bananas YUM :)
Only a short walk to the beach absolutely beautiful and booked kids in for scuba diving while down there
With help from Bob and Karen we felt we saw everything and some there hospitality was amazing and left Rarotonga with two new friends

Thankyou to Bob and Karen Hamilton for having us for my nieces wedding. The house was perfect in everyway. Everything we needed and your local knowledge on things to see and do was excellent.

“Coral Sands apartments Arorangi Rarotonga Cook Islands”
Reviewed 5 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

person found this review helpful

Myself my wife our adult downs syndrome son and a female family friend stayed in a three bedroom two bathroom self catering apartment for seven days 13th to 20th june. Bob and Karen were most helpful for all our requests. We were met at the airport by Bob and delivered back to the airport at the end of our stay. They also arranged a rental car at very reasonable rates which was delivered to and picked up from the apartments. The apartment was very clean and well appointed with cooking facilities.Location was excellent right on the beach and within walking distance to restaurants. The lagoon was about 50 meters from apartments bordered by a coral sand beach OK for swimming snorkeling etc but reef shoes a must as a lot of coral in lagoon. During our stay we had the good fortune to witness the first visit of a cruise ship tendering passengers through a small gap in the reef to the new jetty on the islands west side.Would recommend the Kikau Hut restaurant a short drive or if you are energetic a slightly longer walk away for an excellent evening meal. overall coral sands is a great place to stay also has one bedroom apartments and a nice pool. Son enjoyed the DVD library

“A Little Paradise in the Sun”
Reviewed 13 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

people found this review helpful

If you are planning a trip to Rarotonga look no further than the Coral Sands. We stayed here for just under 4 weeks in May/June 2013 and we were so glad we chose the Coral Sands over the many other properties we had looked at. Myself and my fiancé have travelled extensively and have stayed in many 4 and 5 star accommodations and the standard at the Coral Sands is well up there. Everything necessary is provided for self catering including an unexpected welcome breakfast pack including local seasonal fruit. The accommodation is perfectly clean, both towels and bedding changed regularly. The BBQ on premises is excellent for cooking, especially the local fish. In addition to the modern well furnished apartments the location is excellent, steps away from the beach where you are guaranteed a beautiful sunset every evening. There is free use of kayaks and snorkelling equipment so no need to bring your own. Five minutes walk away there is a very reasonably priced scooter/car rental shop.(Scooter is the way to go in Raro)
Bob and Karen were amazing hosts and went out of their way to help and give advice. Late pick up and drop off was a super service and very much appreciated. When we go back to Raro we will definitely stay here again and we will highly recommend this little paradise to all our friends and family.
