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

Perfect location in the beach. An excellent option to enjoy Cook Islands. Very friendly staff and excellent environment. Almost perfect, but there´s no free Wifi, a very importan issue to improve in my opinion.

Excellent location with friendly staff. Our over beach villa was spacious and lovely. The view was spectacular. However, we had room 5 right next to the pool area, so not ideal. Also, I did think we could have had clean sheets once in our 7 night stay. The food was what definitely let this place down for us. I would... More

We thought we had booked a luxury holiday. In Rarotonga we expected a 5 star rating to equate to a 4 star elsewhere and would have been content with this or even a 3 star standard but that was not to be. First of all the good points, the location is beautiful, the gardens are well kept and the staff... More

Arguably Little Polynesian has one of the best locations on Muri Lagoon. There are ten beach front Ares and four garden view. We were a liitle apprehensive about our visit given some comments on the presentation off the resort. We enjoyed our stay, we were in unit 10 and this was nicely maintained with some lovely Polynesian touches. The units... More
