Kiikii is a cheap, self catering option to stay on Rarotonga island. Agree with many other commentators that the place is dated, my room looking like it had been stuck in a time warp since 1977. Rocky beachfront and away from main areas of the island so you will need to have own transport or the hourly bus service to get to towns, attractions and sandy beaches. Staff were polite and able to assist with me any queries and help organise transport.
My biggest gripe (and not the fault of the hotel) is that the location is right under the flight path of the bigger jets who often fly in at night. Being used to a city with a night flight ban I was startled in the night by jet engines roaring overhead around 2.30am, only to then be woken again an hour later by arriving guests dragging their suitcases on the gravel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The KiiKii Inn & Suites is locally owned and operated, lending it an intimate, comfortable feel. The KiiKii is not a five-star foreign-owned resort, which gives the place its unique charm. It’s laid-back and local, and a great place to meet people. The KiiKii Inn & Suites front yard offers one of the island’s best, most consistent breaks for surfing – and the hotel’s got an outdoor shower and a pool for post surf-session recuperating. The KiKii Inn & Suites has a range rooms and prices that can accommodate students and budget travelers, but it also offers deluxe waterfront rooms from which you can watch whales breach during winter and outrigger paddling teams racing through the water throughout the year. Whether you’re backpacking on a budget or looking for a safe, family-friendly environment, you won’t be disappointed with KiiKii Inn & Suites Rarotonga. ... more less
