  • 6.0.Good

    Spacious room with basic facilities, all I expected for the price. But simple maintenance was poor, hadn't checked electrical appliances working before I arrived, various lights not working. Right at the beach, but users should note this is definitely not accessible for anyone with a physical disability, need footwear that will grip slippery rocks. A great budget spot for the physically mobile.

    The Kii Kii Inn & Suites was a reasonably priced motel with great proximity to town. Very friendly courteous staff and comfortable room. Great shower and so happy there was luver windows throughout. Lovely to have a pool on site for a morning dip before heading out to explore. Very basic amenities but everything you possibly could need - who stays in their room all day when you are in paradise? This place felt safe and the staff were very accommodating when I asked for extra towels and accommodation for one extra night. Very close to the road you could barely hear the cars [not much traffic in Raro to be honest] and other guests were very respectful and quiet. I would recommend this place because I felt welcome and safe.

    Great place for a good price

    Really good place. Lots of room good amenities. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Very easy-going. Only thing is there were some bugs and mice. But when you’re in paradise you shouldn’t be worried too much about your room.

    "Punching above its weight"

    Nice little place for the 1st built motel in Rarotonga (according to location bio)! Even though it's a bit old (aren't we all getting that way) the staff made up of "slick, "modern" design. Located right on the foreshore protected the reef, we could sit on our verandah and watch the whales swim by. In fact they put on a show on 5 of our 8 days between 3:30pm and 4:30pm, which was perfect with wine time.! Each unit is equipped with a kitchen and crockery, so you can budget your stay with regards to "eating out" at the numerous food locations. Best value, if you like markets more than silver service, are the night markets with a cornucopia of food stalls. The staff we so helpful in fact when we mentioned that one of the hot plate weren't working, within 1 hour the staff members arrived to fix it. Maybe that was just luck? Then, when I mentioned the tap in the bathroom was leaking, withing 1 hour, staff members arrived to replace both taps! Maybe coincidence? finally on the 4th day (at 5pm) I mentioned that the large sliding door on our verandah was a bit hard to open, the next morning at 10:30am, staff arrived to replace the rollers on the door and allow it to slide easily. Why the delay this time? "Had to go into town and wait for the shop to open to get the new rollers"!.. 3rd time proves it!!.. they really try to please IF YOU LET THEM KNOW! They are not mind readers and if you don't mention a problem our need something, they can't help. ..and all with a smile

    Best Stay Ever.....Happy family.....Happy Trip.

    Our stay at the Kii Kii was amazing. My family really enjoyed it. The hotel was spacious and had everything to cater for us. The staff here are so warm and welcoming. I have been to Rarotonga a few times and this was the first time that staff have gone above and beyond. Hayley at reception is amazing. She found us a car with just one phone call. Managed to get 6 fresh flower head leis made in a short amount of time, that were at a bargain price. All the staff there are so helpful and made our trip one to remember. The facilities are awesome. The area is good location, not too far to town. The rooms are huge with enough space to move around. Great place to stay, would definitely come back again. Keep up the awesomeness Kii Kii

    Dated and not very well maintained...

    It's a petty - what their father build had a vision, but now the next generation seems just to try to keep it as it was. 1967 is a long time ago and it not enough to use a bit of paint to keep the stuff together. I guess without investing some money this place will be run down soon and no one will book accommodation. There is a lot of competition and a new resort just gets build down the road. We were in the "newer" building on the second floor, which was already better than the rest. Still ants infested and the kitchen cupboard eaten up by wood worms. But otherwise clean - every day new linen and towels.
