My partner and I could not have found a more perfect and suitable accomodation to spend our 6 nights in the beautiful Rarotonga. The Vila we had was more then perfect for what we needed to relax by the sandy White beaches. Rachel, John, Fred and Loving made my partner and I feel like we were right at home from... More

My wife and have been to Makayla 5 times now and feel it is part of our family home. What makes Makayla different is the way people are treated and that comes from a lovely couple called Rachel and John; supported by their team of Lovey and Fred. Nothing is too much trouble, from picking you up at whatever hour... More

After researching through many reviews online for a place to stay on Rarotonga we found a gem. My partner and I stayed in the 2 bedroom Villa which was perfect. Rachel from the moment we arrived took us though a brief introduction to the island and some great tips which we really appreciated. Most days we relaxed on the beach... More

We have just returned home from a wonderful 11 nights at Makayla Palms. This was our 6th trip to Rarotonga and our 2nd time at Makayla Palms. In our last review, two years ago, we praised Makayla Palms and we were not disappointed this time. It is still a top class accommodation in Rarotonga owned and run by a great... More

Makayla Palms has everything you need to fully enjoy the Beautiful Island of Rarotonga. John and Rachel have successfully created a place where the essence of Rarotonga is felt and seen throughout Makayla Palms. The Villas and the grounds are so well maintained, hand on heart you will find it so hard to leave as we did. With the Beautiful... More

Perfect accommodation - clean, modern with everything that you need. Our 9th trip to Rarotonga but first time to Makayla Palms - we will certainly be back. Best snorkelling beach on the island. Rachel and John are perfect hosts.

For us, Rarotonga is our second home and so is Makayla Palms. We have a another family in the islands and they are Rachel, John, Fred and Lovie and their beautiful girls. Why, because they care so much about the people who stay with them and to make their experience special. Rachel and John wil do what they can to... More

The villa was spacious and comfortable.It was very private and quiet. It felt like a home away from home as Rachel and John made sure that we were enthusiastically welcomed to start with. The existing pantry was a bonus which lets visitors have the basic needs for the first day until they are oriented. Titikaveka Beach is sandy with clear... More

My partner and I have just returned from a lovely first trip to Rarotonga, made all the better by our stay at Makayla Palms. John and Rachel went out of their way to accommodate us - we ended up staying in 2 villas for our stay, but that was no problem as they were both great. The villas were immaculate,... More

After trawling through loads of different types of accommodation on Rarotonga, my husband and I decided to look at villas so we could enjoy a home from home, rather than just a generic hotel bedroom. We came across the glowing reviews for Makayla Palms and were lucky enough to secure a reservation. We arrived feeling very frazzled and very tired,... More
