Wonderful place to to stayPosted Jan 10, 2015
Cons: Nothing needs improving
Location: Perfectly located near good swimming and snorkeling spots, quiet yet convenient location
Couldn't have stayed at a nicer place on the island, staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend Sea change villas to anyone heading to the Cook Islands

Very stylish comfortable villaPosted Nov 18, 2013
We had more than we needed here, heaps of room, very nice place. Aside from the very persistant rooster waking us early we loved it here. Would have been only improved if there was a bar onsite!

Fastastic Villas, Fantastic Island.Posted May 25, 2013
Location: Great Location. Recommend a scooter or car hire to have the flexability to get around the whole island and to restaurants.
Fantastic Villas, Best on the island. Great location. John. Nina and the team were really lovely and helpful. Had such a relaxing time and Cook islands is probably the best South Pacific Island we have been to. Loved it and will be back without a doubt.

Fantastic Sea Change Villas!Posted Mar 6, 2013
Pros: The villa and the view are fantastic!
Location: The view is fantastic and very exclusive.
The location is second to none. The facilities are fantastic and the staff are very friendly and efficient. The welcome pickup was so quick we were on our way in minutes with champagne in less time than it takes to get into a car! The view from villa 2 (of 3) is superb. Brilliant and well done!

Highly recommended secluded locationPosted Jan 28, 2013 on Hotels
Rather than criticize the hotel I'd like to generally explain that it seems like hotels on small tropical islands simply don't have the upkeep standards of those in more populated areas. What does that mean? Mostly that things aren't perfect. We really enjoyed the hotel and there are probably none or few others on Rarotonga as nice as the Sea Changes. The location was good, the people were nice, and the overall experience is one that we would happily re-live. Expect that places like this may have things in the rooms that need to be fixed, or simply don't work. Stuff on the island is not luxury. It is a small, rather poor place and they do the best they can. Rental cars are in poor condition, and little is what I would describe as 5 star luxury. While things might be rough around the edges, the island is great. Lovely beaches, relaxing winds, and warm weather. Food is good and nothing is too expensive. Though stuff closes quite early. Going back to the Sea Changes I want to point out a few nitpicks. Some lights in the room did not work. The in-room safe was useless and have instructions that did not apply to it. Some of the ocean gear there for the guests was in less than good condition, but that was really it for complaints. Those who are used to European or American luxury will find it to be charming, relaxing, but rustic. Those who want a low-key romantic getaway and have no problems with some "character" will love the Sea Changes and the island.
