We had booked 5 nights but not suitable. Altho cheap & we were "upgraded" as the only ones there, didn't need dirty stained linen & units lacking maintenance. "Crashed" for 1 night only - we got impression from other locals that owners not interested in upkeep. They were fixing plumbing problems in some units. Lovely location & has a lot... More

I stayed at the Kiikii for three weeks in February of 2013. I was with Global Volunteers. The Kiikii feels like it was the height of luxury in the late 1970s, but hasn't been changed all that much since. However, it has the cheapest prices of any place on Raro. I was in Room 21 and it was heaven -... More

I spent 3 weeks at KiiKii, it was one of few places I could rent for under a month which had cooking facilities and being off peak season I paid $40 a night for 2 , to me the staff and management shared one fault that I could see and that was being human, I actually enjoyed Paulines straight up...

On arrival at night were given a room (in need of doing up) overlooking the garden and pool!...strange we thought as the oceanview one was vacant...missed out on all the... More

There was an excellent range of accommodation available - from very cheap and okay, to quite lovely: prices varied accordingly, so something for everyone. Bus can be flagged straight outside: clockwise or anticlockwise! best snorkelling was off Edgewater Resort, or the Rarotongan: both of which have no problem with you busing there and walking through to their beaches. We ate... More

The first unit we were shown to by a lovely receptionist seemed to have an ant problem and exposed wiring in the loungeroom. It also had four single beds when we ordered a double and was in need of a good clean. We asked to move rooms. We only got to move after talking to a very rude woman (the... More

I wouldn't under normal circumstances have stayed at KiiKii Motel, but I would have missed out greatly.I stayed here for 2 weeks (Oct 2012) with Global Volunteers. My room (22, possibly the best in motel) was spotlessly clean and looked directly out on the ocean, so I was lulled to sleep every night with the sound of the surf, 100... More

we booked this motel the night before we were leaving to Rarotonga and they were so accommodating. The room was spacious and it was great value for money. We really loved staying here and recommend it for anyone on a budget!!

Among a group of 9 amateur radio operators (plus 3 others) who based ourselves at KiiKii in October 2011 for a ham radio contest, we were welcomed like family, accomodated unhesitatingly (even with all our antenna contraptions which were set up on the beach) and, as a result, thoroughly enjoyed our time on Rarotonga. Shopping locally for breakfasts & snack... More
