Martriki was good, comfortable and have stoves and sink in room, quiet but bathrooms and even the private showers were outside. Tracey and Trevor were very helpful. But Auitaki is good for family and couples. Easy access to the best spot on the beach which it was great for snorkelling.

Umm.. Well not really but an incredible experience none the less. This was our first stop on a 13 month tour of the South Pacific. It was also our favorite one. We also made it our last one on our way back to California. Trevor and Tracey do an excellent job managing Matriki. Managed by the strong but silent Ted... More

Staying at Matriki is a very affordable way of experiencing the ultimate paradise! All the huts (except the Garden Hut) are positioned right on the beach!! Why pay the big $$$ and stay further back from the view over the Aitutaki reef? With the cheap price though, you do get the basics. We stayed in the Tree Hut which was... More

The huts are simple and sufficient, and delightful for that. No running potable water inside, but access at the palm tree outside, and no heat in the showers. But clean, simple and so relaxed. The real sparkle about this place is the hosts - Tracy and Trevor are superb. From airport pickup on you feel lucky to be with them.... More

A very pleasant place, on a beautiful beach surrounded by the best lagoon in the world ! The units are small, but functional. Trevor and Tracey are very nice, cheerful and careful about our well being. Trevor proposes boat trip to the small islands around, and Tracey cooks delicious meals ! Captain Ted is also very pleasant, quiet... a nice... More

Trevor picked me and my wife up at the airport, and gave us a brief (but thorough) tour of the town as we bought groceries. The room was nicely sized (we stayed in the Garden Unit, which has its own bathroom) and had a nice kitchen area with sink, gas stove, toaster, water heater, and mini-fridge. Very relaxing place to... More

Hi Thanks for the review. We are most happy to show you around the island, and usually on the first day it is nice to get a little bit of a guided tour so when you venture out later you sought of know where things are. The beach is pretty special here, nestled away hidden from everyone its like your... More

I’ve been meaning to write this review for months now, but Matriki Beach huts was amazing! I stayed for 5 nights in September 2014 and wish I had stayed longer!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Matriki without writing a novel! Not only is it an affordable slice of an otherwise expensive destination, it is also the best slice! Close to everything, lovely charming hut accommodation, amusing critters, cats, chickens, hermit crabs galore, and a perfect groomed beach which has world class snorkeling right out of your door, not...
