While we were there we checked out some of the other resorts but found the Sanctuary was by far the best. It has great swimming and snorkelling, good accommodation and if younger family come there is always The Rarotongan side. Even the friends staying at the S. (they have also stayed at the C.) said they thought the same.
"We are very privileged to be able to stay on such a beautiful island, and the reason we go is the lovely laid back pace (Raro time) which helps us to relax.
"So team, we will be back and we have lots of friends wanting to come back with us. Will be in touch."
