We stayed for five nights in a lagoon front bungalow. Fabulous situation and best value waterfront accommodation in Rarotonga. Property has been under new management for past 3 years by Manager Sonny who has improved the property immensely since I last saw it 5 years ago. Close walking distance to restaurants and bars but quiet and away from noise of... More

This was our home for two weeks on our island get away and we could not have loved it more. Situated on Muri Lagoon, it is on the tranquil side. There is the lagoon with it's view and wildlife but no beach. So there are no random people wandering in front of your hut. If you want to lay out... More

Beside the lagoon with a terrace and garden. Good views of the tidal flows in the shallow lagoon and birdlife. Canoes provided free to explore the islands at the opposite side. Basic accommodation although comfortable. No facilities but some basic cafes locally. Regular bus service from outside hotel and bike hire nearby. Wifi is available but connection is difficult and...

Lovely property with beautiful views towards the motus. Clean room, centrally located for restaurants and bars. Sonny was great and his Dad drove us to the airport. He was a real hoot. Thanks for a great stay Sonny.

Stayed here for 3 nights in bungalow 1 where we had an amazing sunrise each morning, the bungalow was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. The owner Sonny picked us up at the airport, Sonny was very helpful and friendly throughout our stay and took us to the airport at the end of our stay. Highly recommend Aroko bungalows.... More

We stayed in bungalow 6 which gave us the best view of the lagoon from our bed (king-sized) and the deck. We explored all the little islands out front and found that snorkeling behind the 3rd island to the right was amazing. The water was crystal clear and there was a lot to see. Bring good water shoes - don't... More

My parter and I stayed in one of the front bungalows overlooking the lagoon. The view was breathtaking. The room was simple but suited our needs. The only thing I would recomment is to remember to take Shampoo & Conditioner (They dont have any) and lots to read (there is no TV or Free Wifi) Other than that, sit back,... More

we absolutely adored it, and if we go back to rarotonga we will stay here again; one aspect is it doesn't have that noisy busy vibe, and instead this place has a relaxed and private vibe. we loved it :)

We stayed here two nights & found the staff to be very friendly but mostly we were left to our own. Our room was decent size with a double sized bed so might be a bit small for larger people. The bed was comfortable enough. The bathroom is very small with little room to move. All in all, the bungalow... More
