Airport Motel - Tiare Village
Reviewed 21 August 2017

Very friendly host! She was very accommodating when one of our group was down to check out a day earlier than they were meant to and allowed them to stay in the room anyway! She even allowed us a late check out of 5pm so we could go to the markets and really enjoy our last day on the island! Our room was clean and pool and gardens are well maintained. Really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

Our room was awful, dirty sheets were on the bed and a smelly blanket was provided probably never washed. The room had a number of lizards running around the place when we arrived. We didn't even attempt to use the kitchen as we saw numerous centipedes crawling in the kitchen.

Kia Orana Emma, Thank you for your comments. Pity.. you could have personally come to me of your concern and I would have sort immediately.. Guests comfort is important.. obviously you prefer the open forum. Your comment is not so, at all. Centipedes? Emma, google "centipedes" and you will know what you are saying again is false.. Kitchen being a mess.. well unfortunately not all guests clean up after themselves even with the notices right above the kitchen sink. Oh not to to mention the state you left the room in.. but this is about your review.. Enjoy the rest of your trip.. Adrienne

Great host and accomodation. Pool was always well maintained and our room was nice and big. Nice and close to the main centre and Airport.
Not the big resort kind of guy so this small simple get away was perfect!

Don't know how those good reviews occurred, the suites by the pool may be nice, the garden with fruits and the gardener were nice, but the privates in the front house, seriously are not "rooms" at all. Divided by the walls of some kind of thin boards that doesn't go all the way to the top, you will have half fans and half windows with other rooms, cause it used to be one big room, and you can hear sounds from other rooms and bathroom quite clearly. And another tiny "room" next to the receiption just like sleeping at the counter, you can even hear the owner typing. The owner is very strict, doesn't allow people to store luggage after check out. Almost 1 hour before my check out, I was approached by the owner knocking at the door of the public bathroom in the middle of taking a shower, to make sure I will pack my backpack on time, not leave the bag to walk around, and even offered to send me a taxi, that was very rude. No atomonspher, only saw 3 people when staying. And you can hear 1 or 2 very loud sound of the plane flying by in the middle of night. The motel is in the middle of nowhere, over 1.5 km to the bus station or shopping complex or beach, not on the outer circle that a bus would pass. You can find much nicer privates of similar price, more conveniently located and closer to the beach, like Aremango, or on the beach like Rarotanga Backpacks, privates and dorms. Most flights arrive/depart in the middle of night but you don't have to stay close to the airport like this one, as the farest place will be 20 something minutes, and they all offer pick-ups of similar price or even free.

I spent five nights at the Tiare Village Motel. I had a big room just for me. Everything were clean and quiet. Adrienne is very friendly and helpful. The Motel is very close to the airport and town. I will definitely come back.
