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 spent 12 days at Magic Reef for a time of rest and relaxation. We are an elderly couple and I needed some time out after a busy period at home. It was perfect. Angela and Simon are wonderful hosts, with a warm welcome on arrival, and helpful in every way during our stay. The location and grounds are beautiful,... More

The most beautifully set thatched roofed bungalows you'll find in Rarotonga - the gardens are luscious with an exquisite view of the ocean and reef. Relax in bean bags and loungers beside the pool or sea. Stroll along the beach to a couple of excellent restaurants and bars, hire a car locally or use the Magic Reef scooters and bikes... More

We stayed for 8 nights in May 2015 as a couple – on a relaxing holiday. We have been to Raro a few times now so this was just about having some relaxation in the sun rather than site seeing. We thought this place was fabulous (and when we return to Raro again this is the only place we will... More

This was our second trip to Rarotonga and we have stayed in lots of rental homes and Resorts. Magic Reef has raised the bar and is the best place we have experienced so far. We will definitely book here again. The island bungalows are unique, luxurious, plenty of room, and very well equipped with quality fixtures. The outdoor bathroom was... More

Well what can we say it was a "Proper Job" to stay here, we loved it. Island bungalows well equipped, with plenty of space and a fantastic view, smashing swimming pool. Loved going to sleep with the sound of the ocean, brilliant. Lovely well kept gardens, use of BBQ an added bonus. Simon and Ange very helpful and friendly, enjoyed... More
