Stayed here with my wife for 10 days in April. Plenty of room, fans are good. Roosters noisy but that's to be expected. Close to "town" and shops for preparing your own food - a bonus. Near to the best fish shop on the island, beautiful fresh swordfish, tuna, wahoo and mahimahi every day.

We were booked in here by a local because they clearly knew this was a great place to stay. We arrived at 2am and even at that time of night, the first impressions were fantastic. The bungalow was wonderfully clean and tidy. Alby came by the next day and introduced himself and filled us in. He was a wealth of... More

The location is great; close to the airport and 24hour service station across the road. The lagoon is a few metres from your balcony. I would... More

We plannen to stay two nights in the Paradise Inn. This 'hidden gem' actualy turned out to be a horrible dirty and dusty hostel for 125 dollars a night. Therefore we left and searched for another place. At Nikoa Beachbungalows we fit a very warm welcome and above that a private beachhouse which has got EVERYTHING you ever whished for... More

Peace and tranquillity on your own private beach. Sorry Welshbird1971 - you couldn't have missed the mark more if you tried. From day one of arrival to my sad day of departure 20 nights later, I couldn't have asked for anything more. For the budget-minded this place is a truly great find. You could pay a lot more for a...

Close to town , 24hour petrol station across the road . 2 minute drive to the resorts where all our friends were staying. I couldnt have asked for a better place to stay. Very Very quiet... More

I've stayed in alot of places on Raro and this really isn't that flash. I thought we'd be further from the airport, but it was right across the road. The accomodation was abit tired ...broken things and the odd cockroach (the garden furniture fell apart while we were there!) The lagoon was really grubby too, which is a shame as... More

This was a fabulous place to stay, the convenience of town the oasis across the road, the beautiful beach, the warm climate and the fresh food. My hubby and I had a great time.
