Fantastic close to the beach and the water is really clean and flowing with outdoor shower. The resort is long overdue for a renovation. :-) Very basic standards, Not value for money unfortunately.

Modern and clean accommodation w/ air conditioning

Pros: Everything had a modern feel. From the room's decor and aircon/fan, to the cars and scooters. Infinity pool was great. Rupe the manager was awesome.
Cons: It's very expensive to ring Aitutaki from Sydney so more email contacts on the website would be good. Broom and dustpan for each room?
Location: Koru Cafe is a must and just down the road. This is also near where the cruises launch. Both are a bit far to walk. Boat shed bar and grill was good.
The Kuru Club is clean, modern accommodation near Aitutaki airport. It's positioned near the runway but there is no excessive airplane noise. The room itself has nice decor with everything included in a hotel room barring a full kitchen. While my wife and I were in Aitutaki it was very hot, so the air conditioning and ceiling fan was definitely needed. Also, swimming in the infinity pool and looking out into the lagoon was a magical experience. The manager, Rupe, was very helpful and took us to an island night and picked us up when there was no transport available. And transport is needed due to the slightly isolated location of the property. If there's one thing I'd recommend during the holiday season is pre-book cars and/or scooters way ahead of time. While this is not budget accommodation, it has a high end feel for a mid range price. From what I've read previously, they have definitely listened to comments and are still making ongoing improvements. Aside from a hiccup with airport pickup we've had no problems at Kuru Club. On our next trip back to Aitutaki we'll be coming back here.

Modern, clean and friendly staff.

A great place to stay. Ultra helpful staff. New hotel, with a bright open and airy feel. Not sure what other people were expecting, it's aitutaki not New York! Would definitely stay there again.

Pros: It was close to the airport
Cons: Just about everything could be improved.
Location: Check out Aitutaki, it is a great location to stay
Kuru Club's website boasts many things, but delivers on very little. There is no check-in facility at the motel/hotel, poor communication between staff, there was no hot water for the first 36 hours of our stay, no towel rails in the bathroom, missing fittings, security windows that did not lock and limited instructions for most facilities. We only saw a staff member at the units on our last day there, not seeing anyone apart from when we got our key for our room for the first 2 days. When we tried to contact them by phone, our calls went unanswered and there was no message system. The rooms were advertised with wifi, that didn't work and we had no one to talk to about it!! And that went for everything we found wrong, and we listed about 30 different things wrong with the room alone. Oh, and the sheet on the bed had a stain on it!! This place is very new, but not up to standard by a long chalk.
