Went there the 3rd time with my family last year. I wont go back again. They do not spend any money on the accommodation. The attitude is awful and the locals are telling the tourists they do not want them there although they are happy to take their money. I will not go back again. There many many beautiful tropical islands from NZ to visit so please do your homework before you travel. Their pricing includes breakfast which is very average, the beds are so bad, unbelievable. I hired scooters though their office, which we ended up paying 2 or 3 times more then first told. Very disappointing.

I booked this property through booking.com for a trip in April. They took full payment for the booking before the agreed time on booking.com. I then cancelled the booking within the free cancellation period . However the property never refunded my money. They've ignored all my emails and phone calls to date.

I emailed Paradise Cove on 11 March, that they had charged my credit card on 05 March, without my authority . I had made the reservation thru Booking.com and the booking terms was that the full payment was due on 22 APR. Paradise Cove advised they accidentally charged my card for the full stay of 3nts. Kept chasing them via emails and they advised that they were sorry and "we have till the 23rd March for us to return the full funds." After this, I since cancelled my booking. It is now 26 March, some 21 days after Paradise Cove without my authority charged my card. I still have no refund back ! I have not received a response from my recent emails.

First, it wasn't a cove as I would define a cove. Just a long white sand beach in each direction. The staff was friendly and helpful. The huts on the beach are about the size of a cruise ship cabin, up on stilts, with a minimalist kitchen thrown in. Tight to say the least. The kitchen was sparingly equipped, 2 of everything, 2 forks, 2 plates, 2 knives, etc. One pot, one pan. Cooking was a challenge. Guess that is part of the adventure of going to far away places. The reef is about ¾ mile out off the deck of the hut. Watching and listening to the roar of the pounding surf was very relaxing. The 2nd evening, when we went to take a shower there was no hot water. Burrr. We were on the edge of a cyclone, the wind was so strong it kept blowing out the the flame in the tankless water heater. We rented a car directly from Paradise Cove. They also had scooters for hire. This was great no pages of paper work. No hassle of the pickup and return. Breakfast was included, delivered to your door each morning, fresh picked fruit, tree ripened straight to your plate. So good. The grounds were well maintained. Each morning someone was out raking leaves and debris from the day before. Grocery shopping was a challenge with only one big store that didn't have a good selection. Minimal vegetables and no fruit. Took a couple days, we found a few stores in the outback that had stuff we couldn't find at the big store. Aitutaki is a small island with everything located on the western side, eastern side was the picturesque lagoon side, with hardly anything along that side.

The beach is gorgeous and the photos make this resort look extremely inviting. Inside, the beach-front rooms on stilts are rather small, not much room for anything apart from the bed and a small well-stocked Kitchenette. The bathroom was fine apart from a smell of drains which was rather off-putting. Plenty of hot water. It could all do with a bit of a refurb to do the position justice. To be fair our visit coincided with a huge storm so we had to spend more time in the room that normal. When the sun shines none of this matters that much. On the plus side the staff is charming and helpful, daily fruit and breakfasts great, delivered to the door, and scooters, bikes and a car all available onsite to rent. Plus a nice new gift shop just opened. If you have the money I would perhaps go a bit more upmarket but if you’re on a budget this is a good place to stay tho’ far from restaurants without transport (their cafe/bar is closed contrary to Lonely Planet listing info).
