Aremango is handily located in the middle of Muri and only a short walk from the waterfront. With the staff away when I arrived, there was a note of welcome directing me to my room. Staff were friendly and relaxed and the fellow guests, a mix of couples and singles, were a delight to sit and chat with. My only... More

I stayed 5 nights here with my friend. The location is excellent, the Muri beach is close by with it's white sandy beaches and turquoise water. Good place to snorkel too. The room was spacious, staff friendly and many shops and restaurants are close by. Big kitchen and clean rooms and bathrooms.

Myself and my partner have just come back from Rarotonga and booked the Aremango Guest Cottage in Muri Lagoon for our time there. The location is fantastic being only 50m walk to the Muri Lagoon and surrounded by loads of shops and amenities. The cottage was clean well laid out and welcoming and the manager Brendon was awesome being both... More

I stayed at the Aremango Guesthouse for a week in Feb 2014 and the outside temperature climbed to 31 or 32 degrees each day.With no air-conditioning the rooms do get hot. However for value for money the place can't be beaten in my view. The rooms are spacious, there is a TV room with a decent sized modern TV, the... More

This place has such potential but sadly I cannot recommend it as the rooms were like a sauna. It was very difficult to sleep and I would say it was lucky to drop below 35c at night in the room and 45c during the day. They should charge an extra $5 a night and provide air con, then I would... More

We needed a base of operations between our hotel checkout at 10 am and our midnight flight. Aremango was a good choice for us, as it was reasonably priced. We found it to be clean and friendly, with more than adequate facilities, a good-sized bedroom, and a kitchen where we could refrigerate our lunch while we took off on a... More

Aremango guesthouse is the last left backpacker accommodation on Muri beach, but it's beautiful! There are 10 rooms with comfy beds and some of them have an outside area with an outdoor shower. The kitchen is really big and ridiculously well equipped (espresso machine!), 2 fridge with space for each room and a beautiful patio for the paradise meals. It's... More

I very much enjoyed my stay at Aremango's. It was pretty easy to get there from the airport as the Manager arranged the shuttle in advance. I was welcomed by the owner, who was super nice and gave me a good introduction into what to do and where to go. As a long time traveller he exactly knows about the... More
