Our apartment had an awful smell and we looked around for several days trying to find it to no avail, until a friend was standing in the ranch slider and saw a dead crab stuck in the groove! Once that was removed the apartment met all our requirements. Kitchen was adequately stocked with pots, pans and utensils. No view to speak of but we hardly spent anytime in it so that was ok. Be prepared to clean up after yourself as housekeeping only services it every three days, again which was fine with us. Fresh towels are supplied everyday. All in all the room met our expectations based on budget paid. We all found the food to be excellent and would recommend this resort to the budget conscious family visitor.

Everything about this resort, in a beautiful location, is stunning and it delivers on every level. We stayed 5 nights in a premium bungalow, and everything from the welcome on arrival to the outlook of the restaurants, the room, facilities, the food and the customer service is excellent. The view from the bungalow was stunning, we spent a lot of time on our deck, in our private hammock and on our deckchairs on the beach looking at the fabulous view, and swimming and snorkeling meters from our bungalow. Shelley pays a lot of attention to the little details that make great customer service, including the sarong for women and sun hat for men, daily newsletter and the nightly treat and this resort deserves its five star rating. The food is excellent, service quick and friendly, gardens beautiful and the staff lead by Shelley are friendly and efficient. It is a peaceful, beautiful and quiet spot with fabulous views and the perfect place to relax and wind down, and a great location to explore the rest of the island if you want.There is another resort, on the lagoon, where we stayed in an over water bungalow for 2 nights and it failed to deliver great customer service or value for money. You can easily bike to the other resort to see the view, but the view you have from this resort is beautiful and combined with a lagoon cruise, it is heaven on earth. We read all the reviews of the resorts before deciding where to stay and agree that this is the place to stay on Aitutaki. Fantastic!

Great people but highly overpriced considering how tired the resort was. The food was satisfactory at best. Over $500 per night and had to pay an extra $55 per head just to go back an fourth from their private island (40 metres) to the mainland on their own small boat. Room was good but not great. Staff were very friendly. I'd visit again but they'd need to either upgrade their offerings or decrease the tarif.

Quiet getaway. Each room has a private pool, as well as secluded access to the beach on the lagoon, with canoes. The villa is a delightful, open, airy design with lots of window. Staff are lovely, friendly and will arrange anything that's possible on the island for their guests.
