You cant go wrong staying on the beach at Aitutaki. Rinos is closer to the town than most places, but they also run the largest car/scooter rental place in town... which is a necessity for sightseeing. The place is comfortable- probably at the 2 to 3 star range but clean and tidy. Small kitchenette and fridge, and a deck with... More

We booked here for 5 nights and were greeted at the airport by Rino. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the views from the balcony of the beach and sunsets was spectacular, even got to watch the whales passing by from our balcony. The Owners and Staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and always ready for a chat or to... More

I made a reservation for this place on July 20th through a 3rd party site (expedia), on July 26th I wrote them an email to wonder about airport transfers. To my surprise on July 27th I get an email telling me that they are fully booked. According to the 3rd party site it was the hotel's fault since they didn't... More

Again, booked in there for work. This time I had the upstairs unit 2. My colleague was next door. I could hear his every move and this may be disconcerting if the neighbours are complete strangers. The room was comfy with view of the lagoon and the spectacular sunsets. There is a mini fridge, cook top and adequate cooking utensils.... More

We're a family of 3 and first time to Aitutaki where we stayed for 2 nights. Airport transfers part of package deal at Rino's as was breakfast. All staff very friendly and approachable. Garden view apartment basic and very clean. Didn't expect a stove top so that was a bonus. Rented a car from across the road which was convenient,... More

Arrived and the staff were all very kind and made us feel very much at home. Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Right opposite was Rino's car/van rental which was convenient, because it is a bit of a walk to town. The breakfast was very light, as in white bread without spread and some fruit (because the supply from Raro... More

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
