Magic Reef Bungalows are great! The biggest advantage is nice staff: Nancy is always ready to help and Angela (the owner) has great energy and she truly cares about the guests (thanks for the voucher :P). The resort looks great and is well taken care of. The beach seems much nicer than Muri one (more authentic and private). Villas are... More

If you are going to stay anywhere in Raro, Magic Reef is the place to stay. Angela and Simon are the most amazing hosts you could ever ask for. Anything you need, Angela and Nancy were right there making it happen. Very quiet beach front, only 9 bungalows, no kids and the most magical sunsets you will ever witness. We... More

What an amazing place to stay. We read all the good reviews before we went so figured it was going to be good and we definitely weren't disappointed. We had an absolute beachfront bungalow which was amazing. The bungalows are very unique, clean and spacious. Really designed for couples however we took our two teenage sons with us as our... More

Spent a week here in May 2015 and we enjoyed it so much, we've booked to go again this year. So relaxing it felt like we were at a private Bach. Only 9 bungalows so max of 18 people including the owners. Beautiful outdoor pool that we only ever saw with two people in it at a time, and not... More

We loved Magic Reef! We stayed here for 15 nights in December and I can’t speak highly enough of this place from the beautiful gardens, fantastic swimming pool and gorgeous bungalows. I especially love this side of the island - it’s less windy and the sunsets are spectacular. Angela and Simon were great hosts and always there for advice or... More

I went there with my partner for our first trip away as a couple. We got upgraded to a beachfront which was amazing, although from when we walked around, I'm sure any of the bungalows would have a great view. Angela & Simon were super helpful. Our plane landed at 7am so Simon dropped us at the markets. They showed... More

Although there isnt snorkeling right in front of... More

Had a wonderful time. Nancy, Ange and Simon relaxed but knowledgeable and helpful. They directed us to the best snorkelling, art galleries, shops etc and booked all our meals. Beautiful bungalows, pool and gardens. Internet on Rorotonga pretty bad.

We stayed in the beachfront bungalow for our honeymoon. Amazing views and sunsets. The room was great with and outdoor shower and tub adding to the experience. Simon (owner) had some great local tips and ensured we enjoyed our stay. Nancy (host) ensured we had reservations for dinner each night at some terrific restaurants. Snorkel gear (free) and mopeds were... More
