This is a very economical, convenient, and friendly place to stay in Avarua. It is not fancy and is even getting on in years but is an excellent choice for a basic hotel. It is right on the beach and the location is within easy walking distance of a number of cafes and restaurants as well as the centre of... More

Big, split level recreation room at the end of the building with lounges, tv, books & games. Excellent view from rec area. Can walk into Avarua in... More

Sure, it's simple, no hightech, no fancy furniture - it's not a Hilton! BUT for people who are still adventurers inside, who have outgrown youth hostels but don't want generic hotel chains, it IS paradise. So friendly, so laid-back, the building is an old South Pacific dance hall, lots of history and charm, I even saw humpback whales pass before... More

Stayed there for only one night thankfully, as we had an early flight the next day. Otherwise we would definitely have sought alternative accommodation. No one at reception as it was a Sunday, but that was ok as it was clear which room we were to have. No air conditioning, and only a rickety ceiling fan and an electric fan.... More

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.
