Accomodation: Rarotonga is a beautiful place, but you have to be careful on which side of the island you stay on because the East side there is minimal wind but on the West Side it is known for windy weather. There are many hotels to choose from depending on what you want eg: Free parking and free breakfast, Pool, etc. So i would be staying at the Avana waterfront apartments which has a rating of 9.2 out of 10, it also includes a swimming pool, free parking, airport shuttle, beachfront location and family rooms. this is all the things that i would need to sell this accommodation to me so this is where i would stay. This comes to a price of $2463 for 7 nights and 5 people

You wake up, walk onto your balcony and welcome to the beach. it includes free parking and breakfast and ratings are around 8 out of 10 and above. Its good for you if you are looking for a relaxing beach holiday.
