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

We spent four days at the Little Polynesian and just loved the place. The staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much for them. They helped book all the tours we wanted to go on, and on our return from these would ask us about how our day was. The lagoon is amazing the best one on the island.... More

Fantastic staff everyone was so friendly and made us feel very welcome on the island. The views were astounding and tropical breakfast was also served with huge smiles. Ate dinner two nights the fish and choclate desert where to die for and waitress Billie was the perfect hostess. Waiting for a chance to go back again. Zahra

We spent a week at the Little Polynesian and just loved the room - the view onto the lagoon was amazing - we were fortunate to see some humpback whales one afternoon. The service was great and any problems/advice we wanted was catered for. Enjoyed the continental breakfasts with lovely fresh fruit which was included with our stay. Dinners were... More

A boutique resort, with 10 bungalows, a great beach and close to Muri beach. Nice and warm people. Very good cuisine and wonderful location even just for a dinner.

We stayed at the Little Poly for 7 nights (which ended up being 9 nights, thanks to the chilean volcano) in June. We actually checked out some other resorts while we were there and the Little Poly is the best on the island - would stay there again absolutely (in fact, we're planning on it). We were delighted to see... More

We actually only went to the restaurant since we have friends who live close by in Titikaveka. The restaurant has great food and terrific ambience since the location is so beautiful and the whole resort is so intimate and well-appointed, a human-scale sense of luxury. This part of Rarotonga - Titikaveka - is on a really magnificent stretch of coast... More
