This property fronts the beach and no doubt the rooms on the beach are the best. It stands somewhere between good and excellent and the people tip it into the excellent category.All staff have a smile.No doubt the ' island way' must have its challenges when you do the service.But here you do feel that rooms are cleaned well and...

Stayed here for almost 1 week in October with my wife. Based on Tripadvisor we expect a lot....it was even better than expected. The villas are perfect (we stayed in a beach view villa; great views!) with a huge veranda to relax on. Breakfast is simple but very good and service by staff is amazing. There is a relaxed vibe...

There's much that is lovely about Etu Moana. Don't feel you have to get a villa right on the beach as all the villas have a view - some are just set back further, they all face the sea and are staggered outwards in a large V. I thought the ones in the middle near the pool were ideal. We...

We went here as the last stop on a three week tour of the cooks islands and Pacific islands and what a great way to finish. The resort is small, quiet and subtly romantic with only 8 bungalows. They are furnished to a very high standard, clean, well equipped kitchen, lovely outdoor showers, all have views of the sea/beach and...

This is an excellent property with helpful staff and nice location. We met many friendly and chatty Australians and Americans who love it enough to make it their second home for part of the year. That said, it's NOT a 4-5 star property and anyone used to that level of amenities or facilities will be sorely disappointed. It's stratospheric trip...

We stayed at Etu Moana for four nights and had a very nice stay. The bungalows are a decent size with a small kitchen and large bathroom.
