Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa Reviews

The Good:

- The location is on the best part of the lagoon on Aitutaki - O'tou Beach. The water here is fabulously clear, there is no excess seaweed and there's several motus (small islands) to explore.

- They provide free snorkel and beach gear, including canoes and paddles.

The bad:

- The service is haphazard; you can never get the same answer twice out of the staff, and they seem to never talk to one another;

- The bathrooms are tiny! For such an expensive resort I expect more than to be showering in a tiny tin box with a flimsy curtain; its definitely not a 5 star shower in the slightest

- The general structure of the room is poor and needs updating; they had old TVs and insects were able to come through the screens and door jams quite easily!

- The on site main restaurant where breakfast is served was very poor; I asked for a well done steak and it came out bloody.

- They don't have any restaurants that serve local food; they only have one 'local' performance night where they put on a show and cook food in the traditional manner. this was quite expensive.

- The location: I know I put this in both the good and bad, but people should be aware the resort is located on a little 'island' off the main island. It is no more than 15-20 metres across but there is no bridge, just this barge that brings you across. Its very quaint at first, but it means you really can't stay out late or you have to ring a bell and wait for a staff member to wake up to bring you back across.
