The entire experience here was such a disappointment. The food was terrible, the cocktails were poorly made and watered down, the rooms were not clean and poorly serviced. Examples include not changing the bed sheets during a 6 night stay - it's a beach resort, so the beds will naturally get some sand in them! The air conditioner was broken... More

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry your group did not enjoy your stay at our resort. It is rare we receive torrential rain and it is hard being positive in these conditions. As pointed out to your group we have two types of options the first being self-service which means you do not receive room service and you... More

I would recomemend this place for only its location. I didnt expect to have cockroaches in my room, a dirty toilet ( very dirty ), the TV wouldnt work properly, a leaky roof, not to mention dirty sheets. I wont be staying here again.. The staff were very nice if that counts..

The location was fantastic.The staff were great. Best value buy far in Muri Beach. We looked at a few other properties and definitely made the right choice. We stayed in room 6, it was spotless clean and very roomy. Thank you Toby for the coconuts.! We will be back.

We visited as a family for my sister's birthday celebrations and had a wonderful time. We asked for extra beds to be placed in the room as there were three of us from a blended family. Nothing was too much trouble for the friendly and helpful staff. We found the room to be well appointed clean and comfortable with a... More

Stayed at the Muri Beach Resort for 8 nights at the beginning of March. Arrived about 9.30 at night but thought it strange that everything was shut including the facilities at the hotel. After settling in to a pleasant room (number 9), we were greeted by a family of cockroaches coming up from behind the fridge to the worktop. There... More

I had never been to Rarotonga so booked based on other reviews and was not disappointed. This is a small resort with well equipped rooms, a great pool and restaurant and bar. One of the best things was that it belongs to the most beautiful resort next door (Nautilus) which you can use all their facilities and charge back to... More

Stayed at this resort last week. We had a lagoon view bungalow which was very nice and a nice big unit. This is not a 5 star resort but then it does not have a 5 star price tag. The good thing about it is that it is the sister hotel to the newly built Nautilus next door so you... More

A beautiful setting on the lagoon. Peaceful, no children. We were welcomed with local cocktails and delicious canapés. The Polynesian night was excellent , both food and entertainment. My husband was looking forward to being taken by the hotel manager snorkelling but was beaten by the weather. We knew it was the rainy season but didn't quite imagine that it... More

Spent 2 weeks here fall of 2014. From the moment they picked me up at the airport to the moment they all waved goodbye I felt as you were part of a family. The room was adequate, nothing special but clean and well stocked. The grounds were clean as was the pool. Wifi is available for a cost. Kayaks, SUP... More
