We stayed at Inanobeach for 3 nights as part of a packaged deal. Both Aitutaki and Inaobeach was not what we expected.
We were disappointed as we thought we would have a bungalow that was over the water, but the bungalow was a garden bungalow. I did not notice any bungalows that were over the water.
Our host was like my grandmother, we felt that there was little privacy. The bathroom and kitchen facilities are very ordinary. The shower is so strong it nearly blows you out the shower.
What annoyed us the most was when we asked about laundry services. We showed our host a very small bag of underwear and socks and said it is $12 per load. We thought this was quite expensive. She said that we need to leave it by the front door and she would take it when our beds were made. We did say that we had more laundry than what was in the bag but were about to go on a tour and would put it out later.
When we returned from our tour we noticed the bag had gone from inside our room and she had washed them ! she still insisted that we needed to pay for the service, although I made it clear that we had not put them out by the door or agreed to them being washed.
We were quite upset about this and feel that perhaps it was a bit of a money grab. We feel there is better accommodation services elsewhere and would not recommend Inanobeach to future travelers.
