My husband and I stayed in room 201, a beach front bungalow for 4 nights. Overall a good choice but for the price paid, one would expect showers to provide a constant supply of warm water, not just a minute at a time, then completely cold, and the flyscreens on the front ranch-sliders were broken and tatty. We had no problems with mosquito's but, they wouldn't have been adequate. We arrived on the island at 6.30pm so booked ahead for a table at the bbq night- disappointing at $48 pp. The menu stated fresh fruit salad and icecream, and having just arrived we were looking forward to sampling some fresh tropical fruit but instead were served tinned fruit salad- looked like Watties! However, we thoroughly enjoyed the bowl of fresh mangoes supplied in our room. Renting a scooter was fun and enabled a good look around the island. Swimming off Samade was great, but the meal wasn't. Koru serves good coffee and the lagoon trip with Puna from Aitutaki Adentures was the highlight of our visit- the lunch made by his wife was some the best food we ate on the island. Snorkelling was also good off the marine research place.
