We were undecided on whether we should visit Aitutaki, what a wonderful place. Rino picked us up at the airport with flowers lei's, smelled so good..... the view, paradise .... the most relaxing place ever. Not too much happening on the island, we ended up renting a car from Rino and driving around the island. Found little artist shops, had...

Absolutely loved our stay. Rino is wonderful and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was a good one. All the staff are beyond helpful. The beach the motel is situated on is breathtaking too. I would recommend this place to any traveller. Loved our stay.

It is hard to find the ideal place to stay on Aitutaki. At the lagoon end ( Ootu ), it is very scenic, but also very windy at this time of year ( June / July ), and there are no grocery shops. We looked at Paradise Cove and Tamanu Beach, they are more sheltered but they are also quite...

Good stay there! The location is okay but it's better to rent a scooter and explore the island. There is no beach and not the best place to swim in the water. The family are friendly but a little bit unorganized so sometimes they forget some staff like bookings or pickups from the airport But it's good value for money

You cant go wrong staying on the beach at Aitutaki. Rinos is closer to the town than most places, but they also run the largest car/scooter rental place in town... which is a necessity for sightseeing. The place is comfortable- probably at the 2 to 3 star range but clean and tidy. Small kitchenette and fridge, and a deck with...

We booked here for 5 nights and were greeted at the airport by Rino. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the views from the balcony of the beach and sunsets was spectacular, even got to watch the whales passing by from our balcony. The Owners and Staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and always ready for a chat or to...
