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 approach and found it refreshing to not have any pretence.
If you give respect you receive it.
I read of the many niggling complaints which could be fixed with 2 minutes on the end of the pool net and it was only pine needles which were on the pool floor not a radio active substance.
Mary the live in caretaker- manager was warm and is a great person and the 3 women who serviced the rooms were all gems, if I wanted to be in club med and not get the feeling of the cook's and if I was only staying for a week not 2 months perhaps KiiKii wouldn't be on my top 10 but for a safe base which had places to sit and watch the ocean it was a 9/10..also the room was 60sqm, yeah all the comments of it not being brand new etc etc may be true but remember the land is leasehold there and when the term of lease is nearing expiration perhaps less maintenance is carried out ,I was in the cook Islands and glad not to be around 2 faced tip seeking workers which I endured in resorts in other parts of the Pacific and Asia,cheers Pauline and Mary for being Emi's and my extended family while I was in your beautiful country,Kevin.
