My wife and I stayed a week at the Little Polynesian for the first leg of our Honeymoon to the Cook Islands. We had a great experience, and are happy we made the choice to stay there. The location and beachfront are absolutely spectacular. Particularly great, in our opinion, was that it is not right next door to any other... More

We just got back from our honeymoon stay at the Little Poly. It was our first time to Rarotonga and the Little Poly exceeded our expectation. We were warmly welcomed and the staff were always ready to help book anything we needed from car hire to day tours. The rooms were clean and the view....well just...spectacular! The buffet breakfast offered... More

We stayed for a week at the Little Poly, as the locals call it. We had a beach "are" (bungalow) that was only 20 feet or so from the water's edge. Each bungalow was separated by a wooden partition from the next one and there are coconut trees between the bungalow and the beach. Houskeeping came every day but you... More

We stayed for a week at Little Poly. It was our first time to the Cook Islands. It was just what we expected and what we were looking for. We actually never left Little Poly during our week stay. It is very low key and situated on a beautiful beach. The beachfront room was excellent. The restaurant was also very... More

We too were very dissapointed in Little Polynesia. The location is fantastic and the no kids policy is a blessing for couples wanting a romantic getaway. The Are rooms are absolute beachfont but they were poorly serviced, amentities were not working and they provided little privacy. Staff were mostly friendly but the kitchen and cleaning staff were inconsiderate and noisy... More

My wife and I stayed at the Little Polynesian at the end of a nearly 3 week holiday in the Cooks (Raratonga and Aitutaki). We found that we had saved the best for last. Best hotel, best location, best food, best snorkling by far (much better off the beach than Aitutaki or Muri). We prefer this southern section of Rartonga... More

This place was so underwhelming, we left Rarotonga and ended our honeymoon with a foul taste in our mouths. We stayed for two nights in the Overbeach Are. By the time our first night was over, we couldn't wait to leave this place. The high price tag should come with a high level of customer service, and decent amenities but... More
