We had a very pleasant stay at Aroko. Our unit had every facility we needed. Our bed was comfortable, and kitchen and bathroom facilities well maintained. The linen and towels were changed and the unit cleaned to a good standard frequently. The manager Sonny was friendly and helpful, and looked after all our needs. The gardener was also friendly and...

We were in Rarotonga for a wedding, and rocked up here after our previous booked accommodation was a let down. The owner set to work & had our room ready in an hour, and could not do enough for us. The room was more than accommodating, suitable for our stay, clean and comfortable, decent size shower room, family fridge and... More

Great private accommodation within budget. Perfect location situated overlooking the Muri Lagoon, only minutes away from the sandy Muri Beach, and many great restaurants within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again.

Thankyou Sonny for a wonderful stay. These Bungalows are comfy, super clean & in the most amazing spot in Muri Beach. The people are so friendly - it's like a different world - where kindness & happiness prevails. We will definitely be back to this beautiful place, nowhere else I'd rather spend my next holiday - which can't come soon... More

We were more then happy with our room, service, the scenery etc. I have done resorts before but these self contained bungalows are the best way to go saved so much money cooking for ourselves rather than eating out all the time. Lots of baby(triggers, puffers, angels and so much more) fish in the lagoon right in front of you.... More

We stayed at aroko bungalows in march 2014 for 4 nights. We were content with our bungalow, it was clean and quiet. Staff was friendly. We had a bungalow right on the waterfrony, for which the price was reasonable. Swimming is not very good at this part of muribeach, but we liked the view we had of the motus on... More

We couldn't have asked for more. Aroko bungalows have the location, the comforts and the proprietor to make your stay a truly magical one. We spent ten relaxing days, exclaiming at our view every morning over coffee on the balcony, before exploring all the wonderful things the island has to offer from our well equipped little bungalow home. We noticed... More

Thank you Sonny and family for your very friendly service. We enjoyed beautiful lagoon view and peaceful environment. Simple and clean accommodation with well equipped kitchen. Good value for money. So convenient place to access to Muri local market, shops, restaurants and cafes yet the bungalows are located in very quiet setting. We went with family friends and stayed bungalows... More

Aroko is a good option if you want to stay in the Cook Islands on a budget. The bungalows come with a fully equipped kitchen so you can self-cater. If you do want dine out, be aware that the restaurants close very early, usually before 9pm. There is a communal sun deck for guests' use, as well as kayaks and... More

Great location, very clean and comfortable accomodation. Sonny and family so helpful and friendly. Loved waking up to the views of the lagoon and breakfasting on the deck. Great to have beach towels supplied and use of snorkelling gear. Made great use of the BBQ area that was very clean.
