I was there a few years back, travelling solo. I found the bungalows to be clean, spacious, with a small kitchenette, and friendly staff. The environment is beautiful with star fruit trees around and nice beaches. From the guests to the staff, everyone was friendly and kind. If you are looking for an affordable stay, I would recommend Aroko. It is not luxurious but it will do for a lovely stay in Rarotonga - it was for me.

Nana and her staff at the Aroko Bungalows were very kind to us. Though the bungalows wouldn't be considered a high end property, they were pleasant, clean, and well located. The views from the beach cottages were wonderful. They don't look over a sandy beach, they do look over Muri lagoon. The large deck available for all guest has a set of stairs that leads right in to the lagoon. All of the bungalows have two beds, a kitchenette, standard bathroom, and a private patio. All guests have access to a washer & dryer and the gardens. The location couldn't be better. We would definitely stay there again. Thanks Nana!

Aroko Bungalows is located in Muri Lagoon, just a short 3 min walk from Muri Beach - one of the best locations on Rarotonga. The bungalows are pretty basic, but priced at only $110 a night which I thought was good value, with a 10% discount for stays of 7 nights or longer. By comparison, the Pacific Resort down the road was a minimum of $500 a night (although very luxurious of course). Aroko Bungalows was a great way of staying in a fabulous area at a very economical price, and is close to the Flame Tree Restaurant, dairy store, Sails Restaurant and Pacific Resort and its restaurant and bar facilites.

The rooms were a little run down, and the bathroom in particular could do with a bit of work. However the garden was well maintained (with bananas growing just outside). One of the only downsides for us was that there are a few roosters and chickens around, although there is also on much of the island, they run around wild. But it was a little noisy in the morning with the roosters crowing, so you will need to be able to put up with this if you stay here.

The bungalows have little kitchenettes which are well equipped with all the basics, and a little balcony outside each one, looking towards the lagoon. Overall a nice cheap little place to stay - basic but good.
