We felt at home instantly. Adrienne was AMAZING!!! She was extremely helpful and nothing was ever too big for her. She went above and beyond for us and we felt so comfortable we didn't want to leave!! Tiare village is a beautiful place. We stayed in the pool side units and they were immaculate and spacious. The lounge area is...

The worst place one could stay. We were not informed that we had to stay in the bus. When we arrived she denied and said she made it clear when we booked. She charged a 2percent on credit card without informing us. The showers were cold. The beds were dirty and had bed bugs. We asked if we could have...

Namaste From the very first emails we exchanged - I found Adrienne to be very efficient and helpful :). Everything turned out just as she had said it would. We opted for a poolside room, private, self contained and clean. Everyone we met through our stay was friendly and the atmosphere was convivial and suitable for families, or those wanting...

When we arrived, we had a free upgrade because our room was full.. Room was very nice.. Own bathroom & kitchen.. Only thing was FREEZING cold showers.. Hadnt read any other reviews on this, so...

I do not understand some of the other reviews that say this place is dirty and the management is unfriendly. Adrienne was absolutely brilliant. Our flight arrived 1.5 hours late but she waited for us. She checked us in then took us around town and showed us the best places to go and advised us of what to do, I...

I had one of the poolside rooms for a few days. It had a great little kitchen, bathroom & shower, etc which were totally adequate for budget accommodation. Yes, there are roosters nearby and barking dogs in the distance, just like everywhere else in Raro. And yes, the Raro airport is about 1km away but the jets only interrupted my...

The first part of our stay we booked a pool unit, which was really nice and huge. The own kitchen is a pro if you travel on a shoestring. The second part we stayed in the main house, which was not that cozy. The kitchen was o.k., but not that well assorted and clean than the one in the pool...

We stayed 8 nights at one of the bungalows by the pool and had no trouble with any of the other guests staying in the bungalows. We ended up becoming quite good friends with them. Yes there are roosters which may crow at odd hours, but there are roosters all over the island. After the first night, my partner slept...

Ok, so we spent two and a half months travelling in the Cooks, and this, by far, was the worst place we stayed. And we are not "sensetives"- we stay in budget places, happy on a matress on the floor if the hostess is nice. But Tiare Village... Here´s why you should stay away: Firstly for keeping your health in...

Tiarevillage, Manager at Airport Motel - Tiare Village, responded to this review

Kia Orana It appears from your other reviews staying in Vietnam, Bondi , Tiare Village, Wellington Backpackers you seem to have encountered similar situations. I must say though your review for Tiare Village is not only untrue but borders on a “little dramatic” don’t ya think! And looking at your previous reviews I would be sceptical about those also. Maybe...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
AIRPORT MOTEL-Tiare Village is nestled in the secluded wooded hills of Rarotonga, approx 2.5 kilometres from AVARUA, the main town on the inland road, north side of the island. We are conveniently situated 1.5 kilometres from the airport, shopping centre, banks, market, nightlife, the Cross Island Walk and the beach in Nikao. We have a reputation with travellers and tourists alike, as being a friendly, clean and comfortable establishment. Fresh fruit (pawpaw, passion fruit, coconut, bread fruit, bananas, mangos, avocados, guavas and chillies) can be picked fresh from the trees in our garden when in season. We like to introduce each of our new guests hopefully to make one feel more comfortable. It can be lonely travelling on your own. You can chose to join the other guests Or you can read a book and admire the peaceful tropical surroundings and relax. ... more   less
