This past April we visited the Cook Islands, spending our first 2 nights in Rarotonga before heading to Aitutaki for 5 nights and then back again to Rarotonga for the final 7 nights which is when we stayed at Aito Apartments.
Before finalizing our decisions about where to stay, I studied reviews, did hours of research and worried for months as I did not want to make a bad choice and be disappointed. We are not 'high maintenance' travelers but I did want to ensure we got the best bang for our buck and Aito Apartments over-delivered in that regard. I completely agree with previous reviews - the units are spacious, comfortable and absolutely spotless and of the 3 places we stayed, Aito was definitely our favorite. (For the record, the other places we stayed were ranked #1 and #12 in the Cooks and while we were very happy with those choices, we also paid a significant amount more for both).
What was our favorite part about Aito Apartments? Most definitely Jean-Marc, Mere and Tutu (their dog)! We joked that we'd like to take them all home as souvenirs of our trip but honestly, their warmth, humour & hospitality is our favorite memory of our trip to the Cook Islands. We miss them!
