Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The only good thing about this place is the location. The bungalows are old, and it felt like they could fall apart any minute. The same goes for the veranda/balcony. The toilets looked like they had never been cleand, and the maintanence was next to nothing both indoor and outdoor. When we wanted to use the sunbeds on the beach or on the balcony, and they said no, that was the it!! We left the property after 1 night, when we should have stayed 5.

What a dump! Lovely location but this place needs investment. Badly maintained units: chatting to other guests it wasn’t just ours, with cracked floors, baked in dirt in the loo and shower, broken lights and fittings, no WiFi Hotspot, cafe only open two evenings a week (advertised as three), early breakfast before check out missed on last day, and missed return to the airport less than an hour before our flight. A local cafe even laughed when we said where we were staying. A great shame as this place has great potential, just not anytime soon.

We have stayed in varying kinds of accommodation and always make the most of wherever we stay but this place is really something else! Beautiful location but the lodges were not just basic, they are dated, tired and in part dangerous. The toilet and shower cubicle are in need of a good scrub, understatement. The broken light and floor tile need replaced, especially the tile which slightly cut my foot. The cooking facilities need to be looked at, if you offer them make sure they are fit for purpose, not even a knife to chop anything! The restaurant opens when it feels like it, not even the three nights it advertises. Not good when the next nearest eatery is at least 15 minutes walk. Forget staying in touch with the rest of the world as the Vodafone hotspot never worked at all, engineer was due allegedly every day but failed to arrive. The Filipino couple working there are extremely helpful even stepping in to do the airport transfer on the back of his bike when the Manager failed to arrive. Not a journey I would like to do again with a heavy backpack! Avoid as there are many more places to stay that offer better accommodation including Airbnb for similar prices.

My overall experience here wasn’t good. The receptionist was unfriendly and we didn’t feel welcome. I say this, in comparison to our accommodation on Rarotonga, which was the exact opposite. Apart from the beautiful location, the accommodation was testing: The very old fridge leaked onto the cracked tile floor. When I spoke with the receptionist, she suggested I try turning it down. I asked her if she would look at the problem and fix it. The air conditioner didn’t work. The toaster was broken. The shower taps wouldn’t turn off. The toilet cistern ran the who time. Food and beverages were available for one night out of three. The food was good and the bar staff pleasant. Compared to two other lots of accommodation on Rarotonga, I found this was not good value for money and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone else.

Excellent value for money, huts right on the beach. Beautiful sunsets from your balcony. Whilst the huts are basic they were perfect for us. Amazing hosts, great breakfast provided. Would absolutely stay here again.

The accommodation is right on the waterfront and the hosts were absolutely lovely. I seriously enjoyed my time here. Best not to come here expecting the hilton but come and soak up the beautiful location and people, and you will love the place.

Not the best place to stay it is really budget accommodation for a budget price. We had no Hot water our whole stay. cracked and Broken Tiles nails stuck out in kitchen cupboard nails stuck up on the verandah. when you walked around the whole building moved. unfortunately, we had bad weather on our stay and with all the windows and doors shut the curtains blew in the wind floors got wet also our bed did too. the beach location is beautiful I felt they really didn't care about the place sadly. Because of the price they know they are always going to be people that book in would i have paid extra to get somewhere better the Answer is yes

I loved my stay at Paradise Cove! The location was absolutely perfect, the room was cute , clean and had a very "island" feel to it. Also not to mention the bungalows are literally on the beach, just a few steps away from the water! I loved it! The staff were very welcoming and looked after me well during my stay. I'll definitely be back!! :)

Best value for money... chalets on the beach... can't wait to stay again! Fantastic views. Smaller facility to help capture laid back island style. I could have stayed for ever. Yummy dinner, fantastic air conditioner lol

Have stayed at Paradise Cove two times on my paddling trips to Aitutaki. The front office, accommodation, and resto/bar staff are ALWAYS so incredibly hospitable and friendly. We feel like family staying here. Maine and TK are amazing. The location cannot be beat, the bungalows are in the absolute best place, and with the opening of the bar/resto two days per week- WOW- makes it even more amazing! TK was the most gracious host for us with getting a DJ one night so we could dance the night away, and the restaurant meals made it convenient for dinner and dancing right on site. The WIFI packages to buy work great, coverage obviously gets better the closer you are to the router up front, but no issues really in my room. Breakfasts are put in your mini fridges the afternoon before, which is great to be able to have access to the food when you like. Breakfasts are loaded up with fresh fruits, bread for toasting, butter, jams, cereal, and milk, juice, and water are in the fridge. Daily cleaning is fantastic, thank you ladies :) Fishing is so fun in the lagoon, and access to the local phone to make local calls as needed is great. TK even took us out on his boat one day to explore Heaven and One Foot- STUNNING!! MAHALO TK! There are a few things that could be tended to to make the experience 5 star for our group: Upgrading the mini fridges whose doors are falling off, and tending to the hot plates and AC units in some bungalows in need of fixing. All bungalows pay the same amount to stay, but some do not have working AC, which was a bit disappointing for some of our group who needed it. Sometimes the water goes out, which is fine, but maybe give guests contact numbers for who to call if the office is closed and there is no water. The only other thing (which this accommodation has no control over) is that the neighboring property burns their rubbish every morning and every evening on the beach, which blows straight into the bungalows. Some of us have allergies and sinus conditions, so that was very rough for some of us and we would have to leave the property during these times. We absolutely adore this accommodation and can't wait to return!!! We love Paradise Cove!
