We enjoyed an 8 night stay back at Dorothys. As mentioned in previous review it met all our needs although we did spend more time on other parts of the Island for swimming and snorkelling where the water was clearer. Its a great property and close to Muri night markets, restaurants and cafes. Was lovely to catch up with Maureen... More

For someone not looking for an expensive resort this is the place for you. These bungalows are unpretentious and are for those who enjoy self-service accommodation. While they don't have a beach frontage it is a very short walk to the sea. They are very well placed close to a general store for most of your food requirements, lovely restaurants,... More

We had 9 nights here very close to the beach, the units are well appointed clean and tidy. The welcome we had when we arrived was great and our arrival was at midnight. Ivor and the crew Bill and Maureen look after everyone very well and nothing is too much trouble.

Nice location. Two minute work to Muri Lagoon. Good size bungalows, well equipped. Kitchen had everything we needed. Comfortable bed, quite during the night. We loved the restaurant Rickshaw for dinner. Lots of restaurant's close to Dorothy's.

We stayed here for 11 nights - fantastic location in Muri, just 2 minutes walk along a track and you are on the beach! Comfortable bedroom and living accommodation with outside seating areas, one of which is covered, ideal for those occasional monsoon rainfalls! There is a safe and washing machine and good sized fridge freezer. The lagoon is perfect... More

We had a marvelous stay in this 2 bedroom bungalow. Everything we needed was there. The bedrooms had air conditioning but the only thing that stopped me putting a higher rating was no air con in the main living area. There were fans though. This was a great place for our all female family who attended a wedding in Rarotonga.... More
