We loved staying here. The room was really tidy and serviced daily. The staff were wonderful - they organised a scooter, snorkel gear, and a boat trip, all with a smile! The meals were really nice, and the Island night was very entertaining. It is located on a beautiful beach, perfect for swimming and walking out onto the sandbar. Snorkelling...

Manager Tania and her team provided the best service, meals fantastic and entertainment great. Value best on the island. Rooms were adequate, restaurant ideally situated right on the waters edge. See you next year.

Had the pleasure of staying here in April 2017. Staff are great, nothing to much trouble, and very friendly. Cottages are comfy, no TV, but that is good as who needs bad news when you are in paradise! Just metres from the beach, great swimming and beautiful sunsets. Highly recommend .

I spent a lot of time weighing up the options of staying lagoon side or reef side and am so glad I chose Aitutaki Village. Whilst further away than the rest of the resorts and villages, we hired a scooter which allowed us to explore the rest of the island/atoll and the lagoon side was definitely better. I overheard numerous...

The main lounge, restaurant and bar, and the hotel's reclining chairs are literally on the edge of one of the world's most beautiful blue lagoons - one step and you are in the water. The view is fantastic. Just behind there are about a dozen bungalows of very recent construction, extremely comfortable and in perfect conditions. The restaurant is excellent...

We had a wonderful 5 night stay at this property. Elaine was exceptional and took excellent care of us. This property is right on the lagoon and is the perfect location to take a dip, kayak or just lounge around. The upgraded room was good but it does not have a TV. There is an in-house library to borrow a...

Loved the Bungalow we were in. They were very clean and the bed was cozy. Meals at the restaurant by the water were enjoyable. Spent our days swimming, snorkelling and going on long walks. The staff organised our snorkelling trip to One Foot Island and it was a great day. The blue as blue water, marine life and snorkelling was...

I was happy to see the rooms stayed the same but some upgrades to the property were nice to see. Everyone working there is wonderful and very accommodating. One thing I noticed when going over my receipts when we arrived on Raro was we did not receive the invitation to go on one of the charters that was included in...

The staff were all great. We loved riding on the back of the truck from the airport. The room was nice, not fancy, but nice enough. You would not want to spend much time in the room, the scenery is just amazing! The beach is stunning, no need for a pool when you have a beach like that. We enjoyed...

Incredible. Breathtaking weather & beach & people With more words it really doesn't say anymore than the first grouping. The trip & there was an adventure in itself. But once on a moped the island was all yours to explore Heaven. Was just that. One Foot Island needs more exploring. Must return. ❤️❤️❤️
