I stayed at the Paradise Inn for 3 nights in November 2014. I had a split level room with the bedroom on the upper level. The room had everything I needed with a little kitchen, shower/loo and plenty of shelf and hanging space. Everyone is very friendly and in the evening it was a delight to meet fellow residents on...

I stayed here during the weekend and was disappointed to find that there were no restaurants or stores open nearby (there was also no one at reception to ask for suggestions of where to go). Ended up subsisting on peanut butter and bread from the small shop next door. Noise level at night is very high with lots of loud... More

We stayed here 20 years ago and it still hasn't lost it's charm. We rented the family room and had plenty of space for the 3 of us. The weather was wet and cold so we did lots of cooking in the room. Very convenient location for shopping, the dance competition and other Constitution week events. Don't let the lack... More

I came as a walk in looking for a cheap quiet room. It was just what I needed. The room was clean and serviced everyday (except Sunday). Paid only $77 a night as a walk in. Unfortunately there was only one tv channel. The shower was good. There are a few Mosquitos, but was supplied insect coils.

I stayed here for 2 weeks when my husband and I relocated to Rarotonga for his job. Tua helped me figure out where to buy fresh fish, Aliti the cleaning lady helped us when we had ants in our room (it's the tropics, what do you expect?! We never saw cockroaches though) and we were even upgraded to the honeymoon... More

Paradise Inn has a lot of potential. It's a beautiful old building, with a wonderful terrace. The common area is very spacious and comfortable. It's also just minutes away from the heart of the capital town of Avarua (not that there is much to do or see there, but still..) and lies right on a pretty beach (which is not... More

We stayed for one night in this charming two level accommodation as our flight to Aitutaki was the next day. Paradise Inn is located at the north side of the island at the outskirt of Avarua - the capital. I was expecting this to be a minus but unless you are staying in one of the resorts you need some...
