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. ❤️❤️❤️

Spent five days at this resort and really enjoyed our stay. The positive things are the staff are really amazing and went out of their way to help out. The young lady that picked us up was very informative and the young lady who runs it was 10 out of 10. Nothing was a problem even when we were in...

We stayed elsewhere but came here for paddle boarding, dinner and dessert on several occasions. Relaxing atmosphere, gorgeous views of the lagoon and sunset and lovely food. Cocktails and dessert were also great! *Note we traveled in Nov 2015 but left it a little late to write our review*

At the small family-owned Aitutaki Village, you will be treated like you are one of the family. With just a few cabins - 10 or 12 I think, the staff knows your names and works hard to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The property is located on the opposite side of the island from most of the resorts (but...

Food in the Cook Islands can be pretty hit-and-miss. Here the food is generally consistent and a pretty good standard. Particular dishes are great every time. Some others are only ok, but nothing that you'd call terrible. (unlike other places on the islands in the near vicinity). Staff are friendly and location can't be beaten. If you're in Aitutaki, do...
