Air polution
The bungalow was fine but smoke from neighbors burn piles Spoiled the good clean pacific air. Burning damp leaves and rubbish in smoldering piles seems to be common on all the islands we visited from French Polynesia to the Cooks. Travel brochures never Show this.anyone with respiratory ailments should be made aware of this. I will not be able to go back there due to my asthma.

Great little hotel
We only stayed one night at the Aro'a Beachside and it wasn't long enough! We got in early and were able to arrange early check in and late check out, which was perfect for the flights we were coming in and leaving on. The room was perfectly comfortable, and had a nice basket of fruit waiting for us along with the magnificent view. The staff ("the girls") were all really helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay there again.

Good3.0 / 5
Dec 2014, You stayed where ?
The stay was to attend a family gathering, in the picture online the room appeared much larger, as in much larger. The room had a TV which never worked, two beds squished together which was a shock to me and my twenty something daughter rather than separate rooms, and that was a " what ? " right there. The other person would have to vacate the room whenever you went to the loo, otherwise majorly pongy. Would suit others maybe, wasn't really our cuppa tea so to speak, on the up side, breakfast every morning was great 8/10 on that one. Cleanliness 7/10, wasn't to bad. People (hosts / staff) always had a smile a story and a laugh to share and the gardens 9/10. I would stay there again, different room this time, remembering its the quiet side of the island, if your a party animal its not really your scene, you'd be better at one of the bigger resorts.You definitely need transport to get yourself around, scooters or car rentals are fairly cheap bout 30 bucks or something a day, and the bus stopped outside the camp gate. Overall for us about 7/10.
