You could not ask for nicer owners Harry and Pauline Napa. When I thought I needed a charger for my razor, Harry took me all over Avarua trying to find one. The staff did a excellent job of daily cleaning, making the beds, and bringing clean towels each day. This was my third stay at the Kiikii Motel while with...

I stayed at the Kiikii Motel for three weeks with Global Volunteers and had an unforgettable experience. The motel could use an update because it has a 1970s feel. There are some maintenance issues but the staff is incredible and they do everything they can to make the rooms liveable. There are a few insects and geckos, but on a...

4* overall on value! We booked one night (you have to have somewhere booked to get into the country!) and ended up staying 10 nights. We paid 60% of what we would pay elsewhere for less space, no pool but a coat of paint. Personally I would rather spend the money on good food and trips and our kids couldn't...

We had booked 5 nights but not suitable. Altho cheap & we were "upgraded" as the only ones there, didn't need dirty stained linen & units lacking maintenance. "Crashed" for 1 night only - we got impression from other locals that owners not interested in upkeep. They were fixing plumbing problems in some units. Lovely location & has a lot...

I stayed at the Kiikii for three weeks in February of 2013. I was with Global Volunteers. The Kiikii feels like it was the height of luxury in the late 1970s, but hasn't been changed all that much since. However, it has the cheapest prices of any place on Raro. I was in Room 21 and it was heaven -...

I spent 3 weeks at KiiKii, it was one of few places I could rent for under a month which had cooking facilities and being off peak season I paid $40 a night for 2 , to me the staff and management shared one fault that I could see and that was being human, I actually enjoyed Paulines straight up...

Stayed during winter 2010 - our very first holiday in tropical Rarotonga! Kiikii Motel's location wasnt on a swimmable beach but booked a redecorated front oceanview room 9 months earlier. On arrival at night were given a room (in need of doing up) overlooking the garden and pool!...strange we thought as the oceanview one was vacant...missed out on all the...

There was an excellent range of accommodation available - from very cheap and okay, to quite lovely: prices varied accordingly, so something for everyone. Bus can be flagged straight outside: clockwise or anticlockwise! best snorkelling was off Edgewater Resort, or the Rarotongan: both of which have no problem with you busing there and walking through to their beaches. We ate...

The first unit we were shown to by a lovely receptionist seemed to have an ant problem and exposed wiring in the loungeroom. It also had four single beds when we ordered a double and was in need of a good clean. We asked to move rooms. We only got to move after talking to a very rude woman (the...

I wouldn't under normal circumstances have stayed at KiiKii Motel, but I would have missed out greatly.I stayed here for 2 weeks (Oct 2012) with Global Volunteers. My room (22, possibly the best in motel) was spotlessly clean and looked directly out on the ocean, so I was lulled to sleep every night with the sound of the surf, 100...
