Great place to stay. Close to beach and in the heart of muri. Had everything we needed and was very clean, had all amenities (cooking, washing) and staff were very friendly and helpful. Private outdoor areas were fantastic and just a minute stroll down to the beach. It far exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend it to people... More

A cute, clean bungalow with two seating areas (front and back of the bungalow) and all of the amenities that you need. Although Dorothy and Ivor weren't there, Raylene and Wiremu welcomed us with a wealth of information and insider knowledge. They were the perfect hosts with delicious tropical smoothies to boot. A quick walk down the path to Muri... More

It was our fourth time that we had spent a wonderful holiday at Dorothy's Bungalows. We like those Bungalows for a number of reasons: first, they are very nice, fairly new, very quiet, and peaceful. They are less than a stone throw away from one of Rarotonga’s most beautiful beaches and yet nicely protected from the winds that sometimes occur... More

We recently stayed at Muri Beach for a few nights. Dorothy's bungalows is perfectly situated within walking distance to town and the beach. If you want to snorkel, going further south is better, but the lagoon just outside is great for swimming and not bad for snorkeling. The bungalow was clean and very comfortable to stay in. Would definitely recommend... More

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.
