We stayed at Aroko Bungalows #1. The bungalow itself is very basic but is clean and provides everything you need. The location is great, not too busy and within walking distance of some great spots. I would have rated this 5 stars based on location and value for money but am deducting one point as the bungalow we stayed in... More

We stayed at Aroko Bungalows, #2 with a lagoon view. Watching the sunrise each morning between the motus, having breakfast on our deck. Priceless. The bungalows were a perfect match for our simple needs; an amazing view, bed, bathroom, kitchenette and very clean. We were close to restaurants and markets, for those cozy stay in evenings. Sonny and his staff... More

The bungalow is pretty basic, but has everything you need. Nice patio deck with chair. Security screen. Bed might be tight for two people. Small kitchen and bathroom area. Bed was comfy for one and good water pressure in the shower. On the northern edge of Muri. The hotel is located right at a bus stop. I would use the... More

My daughter & I stayed at Aroko bungalows recently to attend my son's wedding nearby. Sonny was our friendly host who picked us up & dropped us back to the airport. Both Sonny & his staff are extremely friendly & the grounds are exceptionally clean. Our bungalow was right on the lagoon so we had beautiful sunrises each morning we... More

We stayed in Arokos for 2 weeks during April-May. Our bungalow was upgraded to lagoon view which was fantastic as we woke up every morning to the beautiful Muri Lagoon. Sonny was very helpful through out our stay and was kind enough to let us stay in our bungalow for one extra day free of charge as our flight wasn't... More

I would give this a 5, but then there would be people that just didn't agree and wouldn't listen. The bungalows are NOT fancy. They are not those 5 star bungalows hanging out over the water that you see in the movies. But they give you privacy, flexibility, a great location, AND won't break your budget. We hung out on...

Whilst these bungalows are close to Muri beach, they arent on Muri beach per se. Rather, they are on the lagoon itself, with the 'beach' around 5 minutes walk away. The bungalows open out onto expansive decking, which is designed to cover up the slightly marshy area due to the tidal nature of the lagoon. So if you expect the... More

We stayed for a week earlier this year and loved it here. We were in bungalow four with great views and really enjoyed the peace and quiet. Sonny was friendly, but we didn't interact as much as some, but that was fine as we were happy doing our own thing. The accomodation is fairly basic, but if you want more... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for three nights at the Aroko Bungalows based on the high reviews on Tripadvisor. Getting to the bungalows was not a problem, as we rented a car, so we cannot speak about the airport transfer. Given the rave reviews about Sonny by others here, I'm pretty sure he never knew who we were. We would... More
