There was beer and softdrink available and a cooked breakfast every day if you wanted it. the rooms were serviced every day...

'The island of Kiritimati is definitely not "walkable", you will need a vehicle to travel around the island. There are no public transport nor taxi around the island so I was extremely thankful to have found Capital Cook Hotel that offers the island tour. My friend and I did a day trip to Kiritimati from Fiji, the hotel owner along...

We loved our vacation at Captain Cook Hotel. The accommodations were rustic but clean and right on the ocean. The staff were so friendly and even arranged for a rental car for our stay. We loved visiting the bathing lagoon, driving around the island and meeting the local people. Meals were served at a single table so we got to...

My room was actually a bungalow by the sea with the waves breaking just metres from my back door. The staff were friendly and homely. I stayed from Jan 1st to Jan 9th having all 3 meals there.

The hotel except the twin old wing has now 7-8 modern bungalows in a lovely surrounding. The beach is not attractive though because of the waves and the corals. The bungalows are spacious and face the sea. (too close) . The food is boring .Only...lobster! Is probably the best hotel in Christmas Island (Kiritimati) with lovely and helpful staff ....

“Get a bungalow on the beach, but beware that the sound of the pounding surf all night takes a bit of getting used too if you are coming from a quite mountain home I did. Also, have the staff show you how to run the hot shower, works great once you figure out that you have to open a butterfly valve...”
