We spent 3 weeks at Paradise Cove and loved every minute of it. The bungalows are basic and clean but their beachfront location overlooking the stunning lagoon will make you feel like a VIP. The view from the deck is magical, whether sipping a coffee in the morning or admiring the Milky Way (no streetlights!) at night. The staff were...

We stayed in their seaside cottages 4 nights. Cottage was basic, with small kitchen, clean. Just wished they would upgrade bathroom. We started and ended our day on balcony with lagoon view. No TV in cottage, so we could really relax. Breakfast included, staff very nice.

I have noticed several low ratings for this property so thought I would leave a review to let people know our experience of a truly wonderful stay. Certainly you shouldn't expect 5 star accommodation - you aren't paying anywhere near 5 star prices! (Seriously - some of the flash accommodation is 5 times more expensive.) But the value for money...

Location is great and it is inexpensive. Dirty, fan did not work, rooms are very small and beach bar looks like shanty town. Met at airport and on arrival it was explained that we should not drink the tap water but there was no drinkable water supplied. Persuaded reluctant staff to take us to shop just before it closed where...

Our basic beach cabin among the palm trees on a fantastic beach, watching great sunsets from our balcony would cost 2 or 3 times more elsewhere on the island so erratic shower and lack of nearby filtered water were all part of our first 'island experience' - we loved it. Friendly helpful staff, free transfers from airport in an interesting...

Positive - it is right on the beach. Staff that picked us up unfriendly. Breakfast cereal old, stale. Rooms basic & dirty. I had bought my own pillow - my friends slept on towels. My friends advised reception that their shower tray was blocked, nothing done & worms were coming up from the drain. Towels, kitchen items dirty. Last day,...

This lodge is really just a step above camping. NO air conditioning. No constant hot water for shower. NO TV, Kitchenette had dirty dishes and very tiny and ill equiped to cook in. NO place to store your valuables as safes are very small and can be carried out of room. No management on site and lack of staff to...

The pictures are deceptive, the booking.com review of 8.5 is totally wrong and incorrect, this is a place where food is uncertain as during my stay - the cook had undergone surgery hence the restaurant was closed, the rooms are not well maintained, heaps of mosquitoes around, non-aircon room but lucky if your fan is working - friendly people but...

4 of us stayed at Paradise Cove - basic bungalows on the beach / nothing fancy - there was a nice breakfast of fruits, toast, cereal, juice, tea & coffee which was very nice on the beach. Some nights they have an evening meal prepared on the beach - very good food and large portions. There are several choices. If...

Always stay here when we visit Aitutaki, once or twice a year! Get one of the front cottages, 10 metres from the water, some of the best sunsets you will ever see!! Breakfast filling, don't miss the coconut pancakes when freshly cooked! Staff great! Paradise!!!!!
