10/10 Exceptional

Great place to stay right on the beach. The hosts are lovely and will go out of their way to help!! Breakfast included was the best as eating out can be a bit difficult on Aitutaki.

A nice place to stay - friendly and helpful owners
Rino's is a nice, relaxing place to stay. It was good to be able to self cater. The owners are friendly and very helpful (as are the other staff) and you almost felt you were part of the family. For example, when I was let down by one company at very short notice they organised another lagoon tour for me. Having the use of a washing machine was great. A suggestion: a bedside light and a wardrobe/rail to hang your clothes would have been good.

Nice friendly people.
We had a great time. Fishing off the beach out the back. When we got there mentioned wanting a fishing charter and had Mike from Black Pearl fishing at our door making arrangements the next day. Hire scooters and vehicles at yor door. The motel is near the shops. The people made us very welcome and we just had a great time.

2/10 Poor

Motel, Null Romantik
Zimmer mit Gartenblick ist Trash: laut (direkt an der Straße), hell(keine Verdunkelung an Fenster zu Straße und Haupthaus), kein Licht am Bett, alte Möbel. Dusche jedoch neu und warmes Wasser. Upgrade-Zimmer unverhältnismäßig teuer. Sorry, Rino (netter Herr mit starkem Frauenteam), aber kein Ort, um einen runden Geburtstag zu begehen. Besser gleich mehr ausgeben und zu Ootu-Beach gehen.
