Had a fantastic stay for 10 days mid June. Bungalows are fantastic and have every thing you need.We enjoyed swimming every day but the snorkeling in the lagoon was pretty ordinarily as there is Alge every were. Wadding in the water every day was fun and the team at Aroko,s are all friendly.

Great location, 6 min walk to town, exactly as described. Backs directly onto Muri lagoon. Bungalows are a great size with a deck to enjoy the evenings. Fully self contained. Sonny is very easy to deal with, and conveniently provides airport transfers for NZ$15 pp each way. Highly recommend for travelers looking to spend less on accommodation. Would definitely stay...

We had one of the two waterfront bungalows, but it was very basic and not very well equipped. The staff were nice, but there MUST be better places on Rarotonga. It's sort of good being close to the night market, but there are way better beaches on the island.

This was our home for two weeks on our island get away and we could not have loved it more. Situated on Muri Lagoon, it is on the tranquil side. There is the lagoon with it's view and wildlife but no beach. So there are no random people wandering in front of your hut. If you want to lay out...

Stayed here for 3 nights in bungalow 1 where we had an amazing sunrise each morning, the bungalow was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. The owner Sonny picked us up at the airport, Sonny was very helpful and friendly throughout our stay and took us to the airport at the end of our stay. Highly recommend Aroko bungalows....
