If you're looking for a place to get away from the rest of the world, Aitutaki is it. Beach was great, rooms were decent, on-site restaurant was good. Needs on site bar. Bring ear plugs, roosters noisy.

We stayed in one of the older bungalows which meant we had to walk along the beach whenever we needed to leave the resort, go to breakfast, etc. I think it would be nice if there was a path that meant you could avoid the beach if needed as our bungalow ended up covered in sand by the last night!...

We recently stayed in a Lagoon view villa for six nights and found it very relaxing. The open air restaurant was in a great position and the meals were all very nice. My husband caught fish on a charter boat which delivered some of the fish to the restaurant where the chef cooked it beautifully for our dinner that night.... More

Shower could be cleaner. Restaurant menu limited, same 'specials' every day, fish of the day was always tuna. Restaurant doesn't appear to be able to cope with all guests, some were turned away if they hadn't booked. Beer was out of date. No lighting from restaurant to rooms, so quite difficult walking back in the dark. No courtesy bus from... More

The Tamanu is perfectly situated on Aitutaki's west shore. The breakfast was outstanding, the rooms very nice. We stayed in the older section of the hotel which offerred full kitchens. It was good value, albeit a beach walk away from the restaurant and front desk. The grounds are very pretty and the staff helpful and pleasant. I would stay in... More

We absolutely loved Tamanu Beach. We arrived late due to a cancelled flight from Sydney, and we're greeted by friendly staff and plates of sandwiches as the restaurant had closed. Beautifully located bungalows, well appointed and clean. Highest recommendation is that we would go back again.

Wonderful big Villas, nice sunsets and the whole complex was clean and so very quiet! The tropical breafast was huge, certainly didn't need anything more. We had such a lovely stay, thanks Tamanu.....

We were in the older area, it was still beautiful and well kept grounds, the pool here was amazing and better than in the newer area. The balconies on each unit are amazing, air con is perfect, nice wee kitchen area, great beds, the only let down for us was the bathroom - it was disgusting mainly the shower needing... More

Loved every minute of our stay at Tamanu - staff were friendly and helpful. Our accommodation was comfy and so close to the beach. Staff helped us with the hire of a motor bike and transfers to and from the airport, they were also were very helpful with advice about different tours. If you want Wifi you have to buy... More

Aitutaki was one of the most beautiful places we have ever visited. Tamanu was a great place to stay. Best location on the island, on the prettiest beach!! You can walk to Pacific resort next door, walk to cafes and markets... We rented bikes one day and cruised around and we rented scooters another day. The staff were extremely helpful... More
