5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great place to stay on Aitutaki.
Friendly hosts picked us up from airport & showed us to our beachfront bungalow. Well equipped, pretty room with wonderful porch looking over the lagoon. Outdoor shower was also lovely. Hosts made sure we had everything we needed. Only stayed 2 nights & would stay longer next time.

My bad experience
Inside my room, ants on my bed,got many mosquito bites though having put on mosquito repellent. Flies in the bathroom. No Customer service. Calling a taxi, they will charge you NZ$0.50 per minute. Worst of all, Larni is only nice to white people. On the day when I did my Safari snorkeling cruise, they advised me to pick me up at the accommodation,but Larni told me to walk all the way down the road.My last day there I asked her to store my luggage and she just told me to leave mine on office sofa myself and the next minute when a couple of white people walked in to store their luggages, she served them nicely and put theirs in the storage place. Walking out of there angrily with my bag, I went to Pacific resort Aitutaki. There I received paramount customer service and they helped me storing my luggage for the day for free and dropped me off to the airport. Shape contrast! Warning:if you are not white and don't want to be discriminated, don't stay there!

Best little secret in Aitutaki.
We had the best time at Ranginuis retreat. The managers were so very helpful. They went that extra mile to make our stay super enjoyable. They gave us lots of good tips and helped us negotiate experiences around the island and lagoon excursions.
View up the lagoon
Sunset across the water.
