“what more could you possibly want”
Reviewed August 7, 2009

Fabulous!! We have just returned from a month at Paradise Cove. This property has everything - beach location, swimming, friendly helpful staff and value for money. Certainly the pick of the bunch, including the resorts!! What more do you need when you are in Heaven on Earth. A big Meitaki(thnak you) to Emmi, Ron, Mamma K and Kau.

Just back from 5 nights at Paradise Cove Aitutaki. Stayed in hut 5, basic, clean room with ensuite and cooking facilities. $100 NZ per night - very good compared with other options. Right on beach, no great snorkeling but a lovely relaxing spot for a chill out. Staff (Ron & Emi) were very friendly. Only place to stay on Aitutaki !!

We arrived at Paradise Cove to a warm welcome and happy smiles. The bright and clean bungalows overlook a stretch of pristinely turkoise beach. Day and night you hear the palms sway gently in the breeze and the distant surf rolling onto the coral reef.
Good news is also that the local rooster ( they do have a reputation on Aitutaki) is not too boisterous at all.
You will have everything you need for a perfectly peaceful tropical hide away including comfortable beds and a hot shower after a day's snorkelling and swimming.
Thanks to Emii, Mii, Ron & Tai we had a lovely stay, got loads of local info and assistance when ever needed. We can't wait to go back to this magical place.

We arrived, family friends and babies with so much to ensure we were self sufficient - we won't do that again. The team at Paradise Cove followed through with the pre arrangements for celebrations and get to gethers that enabled us to enjoy our own playground at Paradise Cove. We didn't need to go to other restaurants. We had taken up meat but really the fishing trips enabled us to eat the most amazing fresh fish. The team at Paradise Cove managed a BBQ for us and as for the Island night - the traditional meal and concert - that was amazing Thanks to all the staff for the excellent service provided that has meant all 17 of us have the most amazing memories of a special place. Yes Paradise Cove has the best beach on the island - a huge salt water pool 24 hours a day.
The whole experience was excellent value for the costs for our bures (right on the beach) and the functions -We will return to meet this wonderful team again.

Cosy bungalows, great beach view, very nice & quite place - perfect for honeymooners!
The service was very good, every day fresh fruits for breakfast, lovely arranged with flowers. Very nice and friendly staff.
You definitely need a scooter or a bike to be flexible.
The ants or cockroaches visiting your bungalow in the night or when you leave some food on the table are not that annoying as the mosquitos - don't forget your repellent and don't forget to close your doors.

We only stayed the one night cause we landed in Aitutaki about 7.00pm at night and really didn't see much, but the room was a match box!!!!
The setting was beautiful, but in the morning, was a total different story, you will need to be there to believe it. No roof on our shack as mentioned earlier. This place needs a new face lift.
Nothing like the web site shows.
Dug out swimming area in the lagoon, but great place for snorkelling.
Great place, just needs to be upgraded and given a bit of life, cause right from the road, you can see the tied look of the property, I was told the photos of the beach bunglows on the web are more than 10 years old.
I will return to Aitutaki, and hopefully stay here, when it is upgraded.
Great staff though, Ron was a total bomb who helped us, the young lady on the desk was a bit of a tight knot, who did not want to care at all.
To Ron, good luck in your upgrade and hope to see you soon, 2010.
