Just to clarify maggie100, there was a fire at our sister resort in Aitutaki some weeks ago, which damaged the Beach Bar and some adjacent buildings. The repairs are well underway and the resort is operating as normal.

I believe it was around $8-10 for beer, $10-12 for a glass of wine and $16 for drinks ($12 during happy hour).
