Stayed here for 2 nights. Not over the top luxury accommodation but nice location and very friendly and helpful staff. Clean and tidy and functional. Enjoyed sipping cocktails watching the sunset. Restaurant is ok - food ok - location is great along the water's edge

Aitutaki is one of those islands that is not so commercialised and not as known as say Fiji or Bali, so when we booked paradise cove we didn't expect a five star resort. However, our every need is met by our stay in a beach bungalow in paradise cove. What we loved was the fact that we had decent kitchen...

Our family of 10 stayed at Paradise Cove and loved it. The rooms are very basic but look out over the lagoon and are right on the beach with a great swimming spot just a few footsteps away. Enjoyed spotting whales from our deck and the stunning sunsets, we were even lucky to have an amazing lightening display one night...

We stayed at the Paradise Cove for three nights and had a good experience. Our beach front bungalow had beautiful views of the lagoon, but the room itself was a little run down. The room was on the smaller end in terms of size and could definitely use some remodeling. However, in terms of price you won't probably find better...

Great little spot, the rooms were clean and the staff really hospitable and friendly. A little disappointed to be told we couldn't swim in the lagoon adjacent the Lodges as there was a "pollution" issue. (they were up grading the sewerage during my stay) :-( I stayed 2 weeks and over all had a pleasant stay. If you want something...

Thank you for your comments and our apologies for the pollution problem during your stay. After putting an eco trench sewage system in place the pollution problem have since been cleared by the health department when water test results came back with good reults. We hope you will be able to return sometime in the future we can offer you...

Spent 5 nights here late August. Beachfront lodge location has fabulous views over the outer lagoon. The lodge itself has the basics, bathroom has shower, toilet, sink - functional, but showing it's age. Kitchen had 2 hotplates, toaster and kettle and bar fridge. No microwave though. Brought our own tea, milk etc as not supplied. Bed comfortable and ceiling fan...

This place has real character! We were picked up from the airport by a delightful van that had seen better days but was absolutely perfect to set the scene of the laid back ways of Aitutaki. We ventured only a couple of kilometers down the road to our accommodation and were checked in promptly and briefed as a group as...

We weren't expecting The Ritz and would say that the reviews we read prior were pretty darn accurate. Great location, run down bungalows, not the nicest staff....Breakfast was the same every morning and not very good. It has potential to be a great place, but until they decide to put some effort into it we would recommend staying elsewhere. Seemed...

Friendly airport welcome and transfer, unit right on the waterfront, basic but had everything we needed, an arrival selection of tea, coffee, sugar and milk would have been great as there was nothing available or open when we arrived so suggest you bring some with you. The bed and pillows were amazingly comfortable 😀 Staff were super friendly, sorry about...
