We have visited Raro a number of times in different resorts, we will be back to Aroa. Room was good, beach was great, friendly welcoming hosts who treated you as individuals. The resort is an excellent size where one may join in all activities or get on your own for a little peace and relaxation. Just shoot the rooster !

We were made to feel very welcome upon arrival. We managed to get a great package which included Aroa's amazing fruit breakfasts and lots of great activities to do. We were in a perfect location and just steps away from the beach. We also really enjoyed utilising their stand up paddle boards, snorkeling gear and library swap. The nighttime entertainment...

Aro'a Beachside Inn combines an incredible setting with a great atmosphere that far and away beats your typical island resort. Staff and so friendly and service is so personal, but everything you need is right there. No downsides at all to this wonderful accommodation. They were also extremely helpful to us when we lost something while out swimming, and full... More

Aroa Beachside Inn is a really special place. It is intimate, yet there are always people around if you want some company. It also has the best beach bar with awesome cocktails and you can walk right up off the beach and order a beverage at any time of the day. Unlike big resorts you are also likely to run... More

Waking up with a view of the ocean was amazing. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the snorkeling in the lagoon right on the doorstep is some of the best on the island. The shipwreck hut is probably one of the best bars I've ever been to, right on the beach with fantastic sunsets and cocktails. Perfect relaxing... More

My husband I stayed at Aro'a Beachside Inn for 8 days from 01/01/15 to 09/01/15. It's a small hotel with only 16 rooms or so but very cozy. Its about 15minutes by bus to the town. We had a beachfront room on the second floor the view from where was absolutely stunning! Room is quite large, there is a kitchen... More

Aro'a have a lovely setting with a beach and great snorkeling and lovely grounds. We found the rooms clean but rather uncomfortable because there was no air conditioning only a ceiling fan (which is not on their website nor did our online travel agent know this) and the bed. The bed felt like it was two mattresses on top of... More

Kia Orana. Thanks for your review. I am so sorry that you thought the room was uncomfortable, it was a real shame that you didn't mention anything during your stay. If you had said something while you were here, then we possibly could have done something about it. Unfortunately we cannot fix things if we don't know. In respect to... More

Owners were friendly and helpful. Staff were very knowledgeable about the island and the activities that were available. Best place ever. Can't go wrong sitting at the beachside bar watching the sunset.

The Aro'a Beachside is a great Little hotel on a beautiful Island. Located right on the beach it is perfect for water sport or just relaxing at the bar. The accommodation is basic but sufficient our room didn't have AC and it was the Deluxe double. It did have everything we needed including a fantastic sea view, bath room, roof... More
