Too far out and you really need a car.

Too far out and you really need transport. No tv but that didnt really bother me. Not really a nice beach. Hotels dont supply shampoo or cond or soap. Lovely welcome from Ana.

Terrific budget property

The service was great and the view was amazing.From the hotel transfer on arrival (unexpected and very welcome!) through our entire stay, to the super-late checkout, we couldn't have asked for more.

Pros: beautiful sunset views, nice (if small) pool, comfortable room with kitchenette.

5/5 Excellent

Real Island feel hotel

Simple but efficient rooms matching Aitutaki's peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. Location, away from another tourist accomodations fills the place with the sounds of animals, birds, jumping fish and falling coconuts. An ideal place for anyone who would like to escape big cities' pollution, noise, stress, business etc. Lovely and very well mannered cat named Tiger provides a special treat for an animal lovers. Staff is very smiley and happy to assist in any enquiry e.g hiring scooter, booking a tour, dinner or taking you anywhere you need to go in their car (this is for a small charge). Swimming pool is located about 3 metres away from the rooms. Each room has a large porch with the chairs and a table where you can relax looking at the Blue Lagoon and small islands at the end of it. Laid back, beautiful, friendly. Paradise for the stress relief seekers.

Pros: Very friendly and helpful staff. Lovely hotel cat. Beautiful location about 20 metres away from the swimmable part of the Blue Lagoon. Swimming pool.

Cons: Personal microwave would be nice.

Location: Excellent location for a variety of the Blue Lagoon Tours - boats take off 20 m away. 25 min. walk or 5 min scooter trip to the town centre.
