My son and I pre-booked our stay and arranged to be picked up from the airport. From there is was disaster. We were left stranded at the airport late at night with no transport to the motel. They forgot to pick us up!!! We stayed in this motel for 5 nights even though we were booked in for 3 weeks.... More

The KiiKii Motel is such a wonderful place. It doesn't look like much from the road but it was absolutely a great little place to call home. The staff was so caring and sweet. Steven at the front and Marty the house keeper bent over backwards to make everyone feel totally at home - because it was our home. The... More

I booked for a week to take advantage of the discount price of $40 per night. I was a bit apprehensive but it suited me well. Spacious,with my own kitchen, dining and bedroom. Yes it was very tired, probably hasnt been renovated since the 70's but it had everything I wanted and I thought it was very good value. I... More

We stayed in Rarotonga for two weeks, one week here at KiiKii and the other on the south side. We enjoyed our stay on the island, very beautiful place and friendly locals. We stayed here at Kiikii Motel in 2008 and it has very noticeably deteriorated due to little to no maintenance and up-keep. When we arrived we saw the... More

So if you are on a budget and don't mind no A/C, Kii Kii is for you! Ocean front means you sleep to sounds of the surf (but no beach - good ones not far away). Awaken to roosters...each room has mini-kitchen facilities. There is a small pool and lots of lounge chairs. Owners and staff are very nice and... More

My friends and I stayed at the Kiikii for a week. We loved it! No its not 4 or 5 star but if your wanting to save some cash on shopping then go for it. Made some friends while there and the owners gave us a real great discount for our next visit. Can't wait!

You could not ask for nicer owners Harry and Pauline Napa. When I thought I needed a charger for my razor, Harry took me all over Avarua trying to find one. The staff did a excellent job of daily cleaning, making the beds, and bringing clean towels each day. This was my third stay at the Kiikii Motel while with... More

I stayed at the Kiikii Motel for three weeks with Global Volunteers and had an unforgettable experience. The motel could use an update because it has a 1970s feel. There are some maintenance issues but the staff is incredible and they do everything they can to make the rooms liveable. There are a few insects and geckos, but on a... More

4* overall on value! We booked one night (you have to have somewhere booked to get into the country!) and ended up staying 10 nights. We paid 60% of what we would pay elsewhere for less space, no pool but a coat of paint. Personally I would rather spend the money on good food and trips and our kids couldn't... More
