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

Me and my partner arrived in rarotonga late at night/early hours of the morning, Nikao beach bungalows is literally a 2minute drive from the airport and directly across the road from the 24hr service station. First thing waking up the next morning to an amazing sunrise on the deck looking out and the beach literally as your front lawn -... 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...

The Nikao Bungalows were truly amazing , nice and clean, tidy and very comfortable with amazing water views. It was so handy to everything. 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. The suite was clean and met all our needs. We would certainly stay there again. I would like to say to the couple who did not... More

Stayed here for two weeks. Had a great stay! Location was the key. We really liked being able to see both the sunrise and sunset from the bungalow each day. We also liked that the Oasis market and the video rental store across the street. in addition, shopping and dining were close, as town was about a five minute scooter... More

Just came back from 10 days @ the Nikao Beach Bungalows. It was a great holiday. What an awesome veiw to wake up to every morning. Got used to the planes coming in which did not annoy us at all. The place was clean and tidy and I thought to be well above average accommodation. Handy to town and resturants.... More
