Just returned from Aro’a last week. We should have stayed longer. Geraldine and Steve were the ultimate hosts and offered a wealth of information about the Island. The rooms were very comfortable and we loved being right on the beach. The snorkeling couldn’t have been better!

My boyfriend proposed to me at this beachside hotel and it was spectacular. The staff at the Shipwreck Hut (their attached bar/grill) was so friendly and helped him pull it off. They were honestly like family after 2 nights and i highly recommend this accommodation.
