Kiikii Inn & Suites

Reviewed 20 November 2017

The place is nice & clean. The staff were very helpful & let us extend our stay as our flight was late. Beware of the taxis at the airport. This guy promised to pick us up to drop us at the airport but didn't turn up. Luckly a local gave us a ride. The room was very big and spacious. We enjoyed our stay there.

The staff was super friendly and very helpful! We loved that when we arrived very early in the morning that we could check- inn right away (small fee) and they also offer great deals for a late check-out too! It's older yes, but the rooms are very spacious, clean and have everything you need and the price is right :) They also have usb sticks with movies and series to use for free. They have different options for wifi but its payable..
Go there if you need something good for a reasonable price!

Kia Orana Tri90,

Many thanks for such a honest review. We are budget accommodation but we have been updating the premises for a while now so next time that you come it's going to be even better!

Many thanks for recommending our hotel to everyone and we look forward to have you here again soon.

An absolute horrible hotel - or hostel if you will. Even though its relative cheap compared to the extremely overpriced island, Rarotonga, the hostel is equipped with the oldest furniture I have ever seen to this price. You don't feel clean or comfortable at this place. I have seriously stayed in the cheapest hostels in other parts of the world which offered a WAY higher standard.

Kia Orana Jeppe,

We are very sorry to hear that you had such a bad experience staying with us. The Kiikii Inn & Suites is the oldest private hotel on the island. We have been renovating the whole premises since last year. All the rooms are freshly painted, most of our beds are brand new and our kitchenware/linen as well. We are working hard on bringing it up to standard without loosing our budget pricing which, as you said, is the best deal on the island so far.

We do have Housekeeping service (we have 5 staff in our Housekeeping department) that service the rooms every day. We also just got a set of brand new showers and toilets that are waiting to be installed plus new furniture coming by boat from New Zealand.

We apologize if you felt that your stay with us wasn't worth it. We hope that, if you give us a chance again, you'll find many surprises and improvements around.

We wish you the best, Kia Manuia! (good luck)

We only stayed one night (after a late night flight) and were so glad to leave. Room was damp, musty and mouldy. The ceiling tiles were drooping off the ceiling due to the level of moisture. The walls and all surfaces were damp to touch from condensation.

We didn't look at rest of facilities as we left quickly next morning to next accommodation.

Room Tip: Stay elsewhere

Kia Orana Gen_V18,

Thanks for leaving a review for us. We need to double check that you reviewed the right accommodation? None of our rooms have ceiling tiles... and none of our rooms are moldy. In fact, all our rooms are just painted and repaired... We will appreciate if you can tell us in which room did you stay and also your arrival date so we can track down your booking, if you stayed with us at all?

Meitaki Ma'ata for your clarification on this.

We got a bargain when booking at Kiikii. We were looking for new accommodation as we weren't happy with the place we had, got online and booked it. We went straight to pay in person and when we arrived there were no rooms available but they gave us the bungalow for the same price :) We loved our bungalow at Muri a vai. We had beautiful views of the ocean and the bungalow was always cool due to the sea breeze. There's beach access and every now and then you may catch the locals having rugby training lol The bungalows are serviced every 2nd day and the staff are very helpful.

Meitaki Ma'ata, thank you very much Heni for such a lovely review. We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay at our Muriavai Bungalows. For next time don't hesitate to email us or jump online to book. It is a very nice spot, private, beach front and located in a quiet area as well, in Arorangi district, absolutely perfect for a recharging holiday!

Have a nice day and we hope to see you here again soon!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The KiiKii Inn & Suites is locally owned and operated, lending it an intimate, comfortable feel. The KiiKii is not a five-star foreign-owned resort, which gives the place its unique charm. It’s laid-back and local, and a great place to meet people. The KiiKii Inn & Suites front yard offers one of the island’s best, most consistent breaks for surfing – and the hotel’s got an outdoor shower and a pool for post surf-session recuperating. ​ The KiKii Inn & Suites has a range rooms and prices that can accommodate students and budget travelers, but it also offers deluxe waterfront rooms from which you can watch whales breach during winter and outrigger paddling teams racing through the water throughout the year. Whether you’re backpacking on a budget or looking for a safe, family-friendly environment, you won’t be disappointed with KiiKii Inn & Suites Rarotonga. ... more   less
