Fun and good food adventure

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 19 Feb 2022via mobile
We stayed at the islander for 1 night. Have no expectations and you will have a fun time.

It is not a resort with a swimming beach and it is next to large petroleum tanks but you can sit on the deck above the water and look out on a gorgeous view.

The staff are so friendly and you really get a sense of the island vibe.

Food was nice.. we walked to the Saturday morning Market in the morning and had fun looking around.

The Hula bar had a dj.. it rocked until 11.30pm.. just join in and have their fish bowl cocktails and enjoy the music.

    The hotel staff are friendly and accommodating. The location is a few minutes away from the airport and the town, it's also right on the beachfront.

    The HULA Bar is a comfortable drinking spot nestled 1 minute within the hotel compound.

    Great place to visit.

    Very nice and friendly staff. Well like many, we checked out of our hotel and needed a place to store our luggage while waiting for the 11pm flight home to LAX. They were great, they provide locked luggage storage for $5nzd a piece. We left our luggage and headed to Muri beach for a few last hours of beach time. When we got back, they offered us shower services for $10nzd per person.

    After showering, they let you stay in the bar/patio/dining area while you wait for your flight so long as you purchase food or drink. We ordered 2 mock tails and waited for our flight, the patio had a wonderful breeze and we caught our last Cook Island sunset until we return.

    These guys are very professional and situated perfectly as they are across the street from the airport. Literally a 1-2 minute walk.

    Booked this particular hotel for its location more than anything else. Got met at the airport by a driver, which I was very grateful for, had quite a lot of baggage. Check in was very quick and easy. Room was massive, two single and on double bed. Happy Hour offers were good. All in all my stay was good.

    This hotel is ok I guess if you want to stay across from the airport for a flight at an unusual time. Our flight was at midnight, so we stayed here for the last night. If I had to do it over again though, I would have just booked an extra night at the nicer hotel we were staying at, since as we found out nothing is more than 30 min from the airport.

    On the positive side, the room was clean (though very small), and of course a restaurant is attached.

    On the less than positive side, the rooms are very loud. We asked for a quiet room, but were told there were no quiet rooms. Our room only had 1 towel, and wash cloth, despite the room was booked for 2 people, and the room had very little lighting. Plus you can hear everything that goes on in the hallway outside the rooms (all rooms are on one hall). Parking is very limited.

    Room tip: There are no quiet rooms, but rooms 10-12 appear to be at the end of the hallway away from the front desk, so they may be quieter.
