We have been long term annual visitors to the Little Poly. Before writing this review I went back to look at other reviews to see what others had to say. I was pleased to see the number of things that others had said that I totally agreed with. We always stay in a Beach bungalow and normally in the exact... More

We had an amazing Honeymoon at Little Poly, Friendly and helpful staff. Our room was amazing. All we could ask for for our special post wedding holiday!! We had a dinner on the beach set up by the Staff with an amazing sunset. Snorkeling just our front was also a highlight!

We recently stayed at Little Poly with time split between a garden villa and a beachfront villa. Interestingly, we liked both of them for different reasons - so it's really a matter of what you like. After 4 nights beach front in Aitutaki, we had already just had plenty of ocean view. What we liked about the garden villa was... More

Enjoyed our time at the Little Poly. Staff were very friendly. on the other side of the island from the main town so transport is a necessity. Food was ok, cocktails are good. Wifi is a bit expensive but i understand thats just how it is on the island. We didint get any wifi service in our room though and... More

This would have to be the most perfect spot on the island. I didn't stay, we just visited for an afternoon lunch and drink and what a treat. The lunch was a seafood sizzling plate with lovely wine and more than perfect view. The service was attentive and friendly, offering us the use of the pool. The resort is quiet... More

We stayed here awhile ago now however I still compare alot of our holiday spots to this place, which is why I feel the need to leave a review. The poolside breakfasts are a perfect start to the day, Billie was a welcomed smile every morning. Love the location, being beachfront means you can literally have breakfast and take a... More

I have travelled to many spectacular beaches throughout the world & am very biased towards beaches in North Queensland but am now willing to take a back seat to Titikaveka Beach which is pure paradise - white sands, crystal clear water & sheer serenity. In my opinion Little Poly has the prime spot on the island and even though Muri... More
