Don't arrive on a Sunday - no one around to look after you. The rest of the time the staff were very accommodating and helpful. Left some food in the unit and came back an hour later to find it covered in ants. The bathroom door. did not close properly. The property is being upgraded but will take some time,... More

Thanks heaps to Sam and the team who looked after my family throughout our week long stay. We all enjoyed the beach and pool right on our door step, we were spoilt. It was close to town and easy to get from and to the airport. We appreciated the allowance for an early morning check in upon arrival. Sam we... More

This is a hidden gem...the pictures don't do it justice! It's right on the beach, has amazing views, a refurbished pool, clean and spacious rooms, and the staff is friendly and accommodating! It's also cheaper than almost all other places on the island, and is close to town and the night market by Muri beach. Great place to stay!!

We stayed at Kiikii overnight. Owners organised airport transfers which was appreciated. They drove us to get dinner as it was late at night and offered a lift into town the next day. Rooms was basic but very clean. They are working hard to improve rooms and I'm sure the hotel will be great when completed. Staff were very friendly.

Just an over night stay here as our plane got in very late. They forgot to pick us up from the airport which was frustrating but an easy fix. The room was clean but very basic, no hot water at all so none of us could shower, the toilet system had to be manually filled so we could flush it.... More

The Kiikii Motel situated in Upper Tupapa is the most relaxing place to be on Rarotonga. The fresh breeze from the beach is amazingly fresh. The swimming pool is incredibly large and soothing.
