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

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..
