If you have traveled far, like most people have , to get to Cook Islands , then you will be a bit disappointed if you end up here . The rooms, if you get the beach-front view are ok , but very basic. The beach in front of the hotel is really horrible though. There's no restaurants within walking distance.... More

We are six rather well traveled friends who recently chose to stay at Rino's Bungalows. From the first few minutes we knew it was a great choice as Narteria showed us over our beachfront rooms overlooking the lagoon. Large balconies complete with daybeds to drift off on whilst watching the waves crashing on the reef in the distance. Completely relaxing!... More

Clean spacious rooms next to the lagoon. Nice wooden deck (although no privacy from neighbouring room). Reasonable facilities in the room but decor is dated and fairly basic. The small site means no additional facilities, so it is more guest house than hotel. Helpful, friendly staff.

We stayed there a night with my partner in March 2014 and had an amazing experience. The motel is really clean, located right on the beach and very close to the township. The staff has been fantastic, really helpful. I would highly recommend to stay in this adorable motel!

Lovely people who run this place, second visit as part of a group kite-surfing. Everyone is helpful, the beach is lovely to watch the sun go down and the place is very quietly efficient (within the context of the South-Pacific). Rooms are spacious and fine, and the meals are superb. Looking forward to August this year..

We have booked via an agency and Rino's was the cheapest option we could get. We have been very positive surprised when we arrived. We have had a huge bungalow (good for 4, we are just 2). Everything was clean and you get room service every day if you want to. We got a basket with tropical fruits to welcome... More

I didn't choose Rino's but was booked in through my job. However, no complaints!! I was surprised they serviced my room daily as I wasn't expecting it. Rino is very helpful and cheerful- nothing is too much to ask. Ask him for advice on anything. I stayed in Room 5 and think it's possibly the best room (after the honeymoon... More

Where do I start... My family and I stayed at Rino's for two weeks but changed our flights to leave two days early because of the discomfort of staying somewhere that made us feel unwelcomed. Firstly the staff were rude, generally unwilling to help and tried to overcharge us for certain services that were already included and paid for. The... More

We booked Rino's on short notice for a long weekend (3 days/3 nights) to celebrate my husband's birthday. Rino's surprised us with an upgrade to the beachfront unit and a huge delicious birthday cake on behalf of their staff. The room was spacious, the bed extraordinary comfortable and the staff extremely friendly and helpful with sorting out dive trip and... More
