I really don't want to write anything good as I'd prefer the world didn't know about this amazing place! I had tried to book 7 nights but they had a wedding party there (all arranged by Paradise Cove) and they'd booked the whole resort. When we arrived most of the party were leaving that day and they were all in absolute awe of the place and gave us the run-down of how fantastic Paradise Cove was....and they weren't wrong! Our Beachfront Bungalow was just that!!.....on the beach and just a few steps to the edge of the lagoon. The water was amazing for swimming and snorkelling but most of the other resorts along the beach only had 'ankle deep' water as Junior (aka Tere), the owner, had cleared the area infront of Paradise Cove for this very purpose. The bungalow was 'no frills' but clean and functional (with a great shower!!) and perfect for a beachside holiday, (after all...it's only for sleeping in!!...if you want a room with all mod cons, then pay the extra $300 per night at one of the bigger resorts!!). Our deck had been built around an existing coconut palm so always a good idea to look upwards every now and again! Hire a scooter on site and, after taking a tiki-tour around the island head to The Boatshed, with amazing views of the lagoon, for snacks or a meal. There's dine-in or takeaway restaurant serving fish, burgers etc just 2 mins along the beach and several supermarkets close by. (If you like a wine or a beer, best to buy before you get to Aitutaki as some supermarkets can (understandably) be quite exensive). This is the ultimate getaway holiday if you just need time to relax and re-charge your batteries. If there's something you need, just ask and if they've got it, Paradise Cove will supply! LOVE LOVE LOVE!! Thanks Paradise Cove!!...you were AMAZING!!
