We arrived early and after they had a chance for housekeeping to clean the villa, we were let in early. We had booked a garden villa for one night and were very happy when we were upgraded to a beach front villa (probably because we were only there one night and there happened to be a free beach front villa)....

Stayed in villa 4 (beachfront) A Complimentary upgrade from garden which was very much appreciated.. Had lovely unobstructed views right from our balcony & so close to the water. Staff were all lovely.. Breakfast was good. Only negative point (to be picky) Pool area needs to be more private from diners at the restaurant.. Transfers to & from the airport... More

We were upgraded to an ocean room, what a treat to walk from your veranda onto the beach. The room was large, with loads of positive features. The staff was extremely helpful, especially Titika and Marilyn. Enjoyed daily breakfast there, with an enormous fruit platter and very special view over the pool and ocean. Loved sitting on the veranda every... More

We got a Living Social voucher and extended our stay to a week at a discounted rate. Stayed in an Over Beach Bungalow and it was well worth it! Size was perfect for two, distance from others was reasonable with privacy fences between the decks. It was such a treat to go to sleep and wake up to the sounds... More

My adult daughter and I spent four nights at the Little Polynesian . It was a real treat for us to stay at such a lovely resort. We had a tiny hitch early on but this was very quickly, efficiently and personally handled by the manager Sam, to our satisfaction. The room highlights would be the comfortable beds, air conditioning... More

We loved our stay at Little Poly. The transfers from the airport were quick and simple. After arriving quite late, they opened the kitchen to deliver a fruit platter and sandwich. Excellent effort we thought. We were lucky enough to have an ocean view room, and while they aren't cheap they are fairly good value (for the Cooks). One of... More

Our first trip to Rarotonga was one memories are made off. Initially we booked a garden view villa because of excessive cost for the ocean view room. To our surprise we were upgraded to the ocean view room upon arrival. From your bedroom to the beach within a minute what more do you want. Staff are very friendly. Sadly the... More

Had lunch and dinner at Little Poly last year (2013) and decided we should stay here when we visit Raro next so we did and it was a right decision. Staff was so friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble for them :-) We stayed in a beachfront villa and paradise was right on our doorstep! Definitely recommend it!

This was our first trip to Rarotonga, initially we had somewhere else in mind to stay but our travel agent put Little Poly on the table and strongly recommended we stay there. That was the pro tip of the year for us. What a beautiful place to spend 6 nights. No loud drunken groups at the bar or kids running... More
