We've just had 18 relaxing days at Magic Reef Bungalows. This was our fourth holiday in beautiful Rarotonga and our second stay at Magic Reef. We stayed in a garden bungalow but still had a view of the sea. The gardens are beautiful and all bungalows private with balconies and comfortable loungers. There isn't one thing we could fault, down... More

We've just had a week in Rarotonga staying at the best accommodation you could wish for. Our host Ang and her team made sure our stay was memorable and stress free. We had a beachfront bungalow which exceeded expectations. I found the sound of the surf on the reef at night helped me sleep although my wife needed earplugs....not a... More

My husband and I never go to the same place twice. However our last stay at the magic reef two years ago was so lovely we just had to do it again. New owners and a few new excellent additions of fabulous hot, endless, high pressure hot water and glam outdoor seating had certainly made our stay more comfortable. However,... More

Before we came, I exchanged several emails with Angela and Simon, and they were very quick to respond, which was great. Magic Reef is a quiet private place, with only 8 huts available, a beautifully maintained garden, and no kids on the property. There is no bar or restaurant on site, either, which means no groups of outsiders hang out... More

My wife and I have just returned from a magic week at Magic Reef. This was our 3rd trip to Rarotonga and 2nd stay at Magic Reef. I’m pleased to report that the high standards we experienced on our first visit were exceeded. You just can’t go past this place for location, the relaxed feel and of course, the sunsets.... More

My husband and I went to Rarotonga for our wedding anniversary so wanted to stay somewhere that was more for couples, beachfront, reasonably priced and small (as opposed to a large resort/hotel). After looking at their website and reading all the reviews here on Trip Advisor, we made up our minds to try Magic Reef. We were not disappointed!! When... More

The beachfront bungalow was located metres off the beach. The bungalow has a real rustic look and feel but is also stunning! The bungalows have a fully equipped kitchen and fridge - bonus fruit platter on arrival - YUM There is a TV, no channels, but DVDs available at the front desk for those rainy evenings.

However simple an event you are planning on an island you've never visited before, relying on internet reviews to make your choice of wedding package and honeymoon location has got to be something of a risk; how relieved we were to find those reviews weren't exaggerating. From the moment we were met at the airport by owner, Simon placing leis... More

When you visit a place the second time, you always wonder if it will live up to the same expectations. Well Magic reef has done that and more yet again Angela, Simon and their staff are as helpful as ever. The Bungalows are clean, tidy , serviced regularly, and are off exceptional high standard. We arrived on a Sunday all... More
