Clean, humble and cosy self-contained cabins with a beautiful view out to sea on the western shore of Aitutaki. Our bed was really comfortable, breakfast was simple but ample (fruits, cereals, bread, sometimes pancakes) and the place has a really friendly vibe. There's a beach bar that serves lovely evening meals...a great place to sit around and chat with fellow...

We booked here months in advance paying around $140 a night through a UK site, which included airport pickup and breakfast, things that were both extra with other companies. We wanted a beach front location and private bathrooms and I'll be honest, we were on a budget and this was the best value by far, our only other option was...

Made reservations based on their info on the internet. Informed on arrival that contrary to web site the restaurant/ bar only open 5 days a week (web site still indicates 7 days a week) for a few hours a night (recent web site seems to indicate the restaurant/bar is "closed"). No options nearby for meals except Puffys which is open...

The bungalow was right on the beach with a glorious view. It was comfortable and clean. No AC, but the ceiling fan kept it livable in the very hot Aitutaki weather. The staff were wonderful. The breakfast was mostly delicious fresh fruit, toast and juice, and pancakes on some days.

Accommodation run down and oberused. Not worth the money. The beach isn't good for swimming or snorkeling. We tried to have dinner at the beach bar/restaurant but the staff tried to overcharge us and when we mentioned the price is wrong the lady got rude and impolite

We spent 3 weeks at Paradise Cove and loved every minute of it. The bungalows are basic and clean but their beachfront location overlooking the stunning lagoon will make you feel like a VIP. The view from the deck is magical, whether sipping a coffee in the morning or admiring the Milky Way (no streetlights!) at night. The staff were...

We stayed in their seaside cottages 4 nights. Cottage was basic, with small kitchen, clean. Just wished they would upgrade bathroom. We started and ended our day on balcony with lagoon view. No TV in cottage, so we could really relax. Breakfast included, staff very nice.

I have noticed several low ratings for this property so thought I would leave a review to let people know our experience of a truly wonderful stay. Certainly you shouldn't expect 5 star accommodation - you aren't paying anywhere near 5 star prices! (Seriously - some of the flash accommodation is 5 times more expensive.) But the value for money...

Location is great and it is inexpensive. Dirty, fan did not work, rooms are very small and beach bar looks like shanty town. Met at airport and on arrival it was explained that we should not drink the tap water but there was no drinkable water supplied. Persuaded reluctant staff to take us to shop just before it closed where...

Our basic beach cabin among the palm trees on a fantastic beach, watching great sunsets from our balcony would cost 2 or 3 times more elsewhere on the island so erratic shower and lack of nearby filtered water were all part of our first 'island experience' - we loved it. Friendly helpful staff, free transfers from airport in an interesting...
