PARADISE FOUND. What a lovely place. Absolutely everything we had hoped for. The location was just magnificent. Our hosts - Steve, Geraldine, Anna, Stephanie and Alone - were as kind, fun, gracious and helpful as could be. Sitting on the front deck, watching the pounding surf, was incomparable. The Shipwreck music and snacks - and a beer or two - rounded out perfection. Stay there - you'll not be disappointed!

NOT YOUR ORDINARY ACCOMMODATION. Yes, clean comfortable rooms in excellent repair. Yes, amazing location and views second to none. Yes, awesome beach and snorkelling location Yes, on-site pub style dining with really good food. But Wait... that can be found elsewhere too!!.... what absolutely made the stay amazing were the hands on owners and their incredible assistants. From the onset of our stay to our day we had to say goodbye, Steve, Geraldine, Anna, Priest, Stephanie and Alone. They have to be the greatest hosts ever. We are a family of Canadians that can tell you honestly THAT group of people MADE our visit so memorable. Don't think twice about staying at the Aro'a Beachside Inn.

IDYLLIC LOCATION. Aro'a Beachside Inn more than ticked all the boxes for our three night stay this past week. Hosts Geraldine and Steve were so welcoming and informative about where and what to do on Raro. In fact all the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly - a big thanks. Rooms are beachside, modern, light & airy and all face west for sunset. The Shipwreck Bar located on the beach has a laid back feel with live music on Tuesdays and Thursdays with surprise singers. Lovely fresh food on the menu with a yummy list of cocktails! We will definitely go back and stay here if we are lucky enough to find ourselves in that part of the South Pacific. Thanks again to Geraldine & Steve for contributing to such an enjoyable & relaxing break.

I LOVED THIS PLACE. Steve & Geraldine have created a little oasis here. Stunning location facing west (for gorgeous sunsets) with well appointed, fan cooled, comfortable fales (loved the ocean beachfront fales). Its adults only so its calm and peaceful and just a wonderful place to unwind. Dexter can also help with that (the dog). The cute Shipwreck Hut bar with all its wonderful bric-a-brac is the perfect spot for some good simple food and a sundowner. It shuts at 9pm to non-residents (from memory) so you wont be disturbed late hours. Just a short walk up the road is a scooter & bike hire place. Dive shop also close by. Thank you to Steve, Geraldine, Anna and all the amazing staff for looking after me so well.

FABULOUS! This was our second stay at this resort and first time since Steve & Geraldine took over. Suited us perfectly. We travelled with my elderly parents, who were well catered for. The beach is just divine, great swimming at all tides. The breakfasts were delicious and filling. Bar meals good value and great if feeling lazy and do not want to go out. Staff are awesome, every one of them friendly and helpful. Steve & Geraldine just lovely. Love the Shipwreck Bar and really enjoyed the live music. A small resort with a great atmosphere and enjoyed chatting with other guests at the bar. We stayed in Beachside units which were very comfortable and just loved the deck and the views. All helped by a week of perfect weather. Would not stay anywhere else.
