Amazing setting but no privacy in beachfront room
Posted Jun 5, 2016
We had a beachfront room, upstairs with a beautiful view of the lagoon and only a few steps to the water. The room was very comfortable, huge bed, nice sitting areas and kitchen. However, and really my only complaint, was the lack of privacy from the balconies. We had an end room, set back a little and as our friends were next door it wasn't such a problem BUT any guests on their balcony can see straight into the rooms next door - directly onto the bed. The only way to get privacy is to keep the curtains shut - thereby shutting out the view. Could easily be fixed with a screen or pot plant. Probably not a problem in garden rooms but you don't get the view. The staff are amazing, friendly and helpful - the breakfast very good and the beach hut with all the toys & comfy bean chairs at waters edge is what an island holiday should be. Loved the restaurant in the sand (the selling point for me) - food & service, both excellent. We will definitely return to Raro and stay at Pacific Resort - loved the Polynesian style.
