When looking for a destination for my honeymoon, I was looking for a place that had all the luxury of some of the world's best hotels without any of the usual pretntiousness...In Little Poly that's exactly what I found. The team here, particularly Adam and Billie were amazing and quickly made us feel at home. The location is excellent with... More

The Little Polynesian Resort, or Little Polly as it's more widely known by locals, is an amazing place to stay, relax and unwind in the Cook Islands. If you want white sand, crystal clear aqua waters then this is the place for you. If you can spare the extra money book a beach bungalow that is modern, neat, stylish and... More

We have recently spent 5 days at Little Poly and everything was perfect there. This resort is everything you could wish for and more. Perfect location, beautiful grounds, very friendly staff and excellent customer service. The no kids policy is a blessing and perfect for couples who just want a nice relaxing holiday without screaming kids running around. We felt... More

Kia orana I am extremely sorry you felt our staff was cold and looked down on you. We have several people arrive for dinner in shorts (as you are correct, we are a tropical island) and it is not normally a problem.

We stayed for 10 nights and it was fantastic. The location is romantically ideal, right on the beach with great snorkeling. The staff were fabulous...many thanks Mereana, Lidiane, Billie, Marilyn, Ta'i, Vicki, Romana and everyone else! The food was great, we loved the breakfasts and dinners. The bungalows are fantastic and kept wonderfully clean every day. Absolutely no hesitation in... More

After taking us in on a last minute walk-in (luckily there was availability) due to a major disappointment at booking a (unrenovated and dilapidated) beachfront villa at Crown beach, the staff at Little Poly showed us nothing but complete friendliness and professionalism. The rooms are simply elegant, with everything you need for a private and romantic holiday. We were so... More

We have just returned from the most wonderful stay at "Little Poly". This is the place to stay when you want to get away from it all, loose the crowds and relax. We arrived in the early hours (1.30am) and were greeted by the beautiful Billie with a welcoming smile and warm heart. 5 days later we left for Aitutaki... More

Just had 8 days of rest and relaxation at the Little Poly. Outstanding setting overlooking the lagoon, friendly and helpful staff, beautiful island with everything you need. The only drawbacks were the unserviceability of the in-room internet, and the quality of the food could be improved.
