“EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY, FRIENDLY HELPFUL STAFF”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2010

If you're after a budget provider then Rino's is one of the best! Friendly staff, very helpful, and clean rooms right on the lagoon. They also hire motorbieks and cars, if anything goes wrong with your vehicle they will replcae it no questions asked.
While they aren't on the best location on the island (Akitua is better), they are very central, and it IS extremely beautiful. Use Rino's as a base and travel around teh island from there. They will arrange transfers and recommend/arrange activities also.

I recommend Rino's for the traveller that doesn't want luxury or to be waited on hand-and-foot, but who wants clean accomodation in a fantastic location to use as a base whole they experience the island.

Aitutaki is one of the most beautiful places in the world, so enjoy!

Great place to stay. Myself and my partner stayed there for a weekend away from rarotonga. tourist often ask us in Rarotonga where we go to get away from things? That would be aitutaki. Rinos was everything you needed and none of anything you dont need. A place to keep your bags and lay your head at night. Secure and friendly owners. They also have there owns rentals and pick ups and drop offs to the air post. Laundry facilities aswell. Our room was only $80 per night and it could sleep 4. 1x double bed and 2x single. we didnt opt for the air cond room as we were used to the heat or raro so it wasnt that bad but they do have them. would/ and do recommend this place to anyone.

Rino's was our chosen accommodation to spend time away from the frantic pace/lifestyle my sister and I lead in Rarotonga. Perfect choice to an all round holiday. Took an extended weekend - departed on Saturday morning - returned home to Rarotonga on Tuesday afternnon. From the moment we were greeted at Aitutaki by Rino himself - a beaming smile and a cheery "Welcome Home" we knew we were among family and friends. Rino upgraded us to bechfront upon arrival - stunning setting, and a spacious clean, comfortable, fully self-contained unit. A full sized fridge/freezer in each unit to keep all our food/drinks frozen and chilled. Our air con 4wd was cleaned, ready and waiting by Allan. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and staff. Daily room cleaning and change of all linen. Met several other guests while lazing on Rinos beachfront - ironically all English people who have returned or are first time visitors to this special spot in the S. Pacific. The property was extremely quiet, safe, well managed, immaculate surroundings. Nice tranquil beach - but shallow for swimming. Very convenient to local stores, town, banks, takeaways, restaurants. Still we had our hire vehicle, and took a private lagoon cruise to the lagoon destinations we are attracted to. Not far to drive home too after an enjoyable night out at Tupuna's cafe, Blue Nun & Fishing Club. Thanks Rino, Allan, Ngatere and staff. We'll be back for some more R & R this time next year. Kia Manuia.
