It is the best location on the island. The facilities needs an update but this is negated by the friendly helpful staff and location to the lagoon. Must use Bishop Tours to the islands for they pick you up right on the beach. Breakfast can use more local fruit and better choices of healthy options. Then beach chairs need updating... More

Although we only stayed here for 2 nights, we really enjoyed the spacious villas and prime location (right next to the Ootu Beach, our favourite on the island). The staff were also very helpful in arranging transport to/from the airport and restaurants. A special thanks to Luvy for everything, let us know if you ever visit Melbourne again :)

My husband and I have just returned from four nights at Aitutaki Village located in the most idealic setting. This village has 12 villas set on the lagoon. If you go during the first week of August, you will enjoy the constitution celebrations with all the villages competing with dances, drumming, floats etc. You meet and mingle with the locals...

From arrival to departure the experience was such that we're looking forward to our next visit. While relatively basic the villas are well presented, very well serviced, close to beach and restaurant, and the bed comfortable. The beachfront restaurant serves excellent food and the service and aspect was enough to make you order that extra bottle. Location is great for... More

The staff at this accommodation were fantasic, the dinning was 5 star. The location was close to the airport but not close to town. The rooms had no TV. We travelled in their windy season so it was very noisy at night. A resort style hotel may have sheltered us from the wind.

This place has some of the best tuna we ate on the island. Cooked to perfection, we enjoyed their delicious cocktails and sandwiches, overlooking beautiful O'otu beach. A wonderful place with friendly people to enjoy some superb local food

This place is amazing. The food, the location and most of all the staff. So polite, so courteous and caring to your every need. Great location, beach is small but right on the water and more space just down the beach. Miss them all will be back soon

Wow, what can I say? From the moment we landed at Aitutaki to the end of our stay, this hotel was fantastic. Bungalow room was very clean. Great place to stay if you like snorkelling. You can snorkel in the lagoon next to the hotel. Breakfast and dinner was lovely, very friendly staff. Reception organised our snorkelling tour with Bishops.... More
