Many hotels on Rarotonga do not accept children under 16 years of age. At The Black Pearl at Puaikura we recognise that travelling with children can be rewarding for the whole family through shared experiences.
We accept well behaved children under the age of 12 years. For the enjoyment of other guests we ask that children be supervised by a responsible adult at all times. We do not have a Kids Club – if that is what you are looking for there are other hotels that will better suit your needs. Our Cabana Rooms are exclusively for adults. If you are travelling with children please reserve a Garden view or Pool view room.
A1 Meitaki Award 2016
The Team at The Black Pearl is thrilled to be a recipient of an A1 Meitaki Award in 2016. Cook Islands Tourism Corporation presents these awards acknowledging excellent customer service. The winners are determined by nominations from guests who felt they had an exceptional experience. Thank you to those guests of The Black Pearl who took the time to nominate us - we are truly humbled.
Flights at strange times
Flights to and from Rarotonga can be at unsociable hours – very early morning or very late at night.
Our check in time is 2pm and our check out time is 10am. If you require access to your room outside of these times, early check in (from 6am) or late check out (to 6pm) is charged at $95 subject to availability. In the busier months of May to November early check-in/check -out may not be available due to high occupancy. To guarantee immediate access to your room or late use of your room, you will need to book an additional night’s accommodation.
Please check your flight dates and times carefully, particularly if you are flying Jetstar from Australia/New Zealand or Air New Zealand from Los Angeles. You will cross the International Dateline if travelling from Australia and New Zealand to Rarotonga – arriving the day before you left. Flights from Los Angeles typically arrive early in the morning.
We are happy to arrange return airport transfers for you at a cost of $50 per person. This includes being met on arrival, a traditional fresh flower ei greeting, luggage assistance, plus transportation. For arrivals outside office hours the driver will take you straight to your room.
When making your reservation please let us know your arrival and departure flights/dates and times so we can check we have the correct accommodation booked for you and we ask that you let us know whether you would like transfers arranged.
