My husband and I had our honeymoon at Magic Reef for 6 nights, and it was everything anyone could dream of for a honeymoon. Our absolute beachfront bungalow was perfect in every way. The view of the beach and lagoon was stunning. The outdoor bath and shower was lovely. And the pool, beachfront and bbq were immaculately maintained. Simon and... More

Here you can enjoy the perfect sunset from the terrace of your bungalow. Comfortable lounge chairs on the beach and fine sandy beach and the lagoon. In the Polynesian furnished bungalow you can see the star sky directly from the private bath. With many nice restaurants within walking distance, you can not get a better and relaxing holiday. I can... More

We spent four nights at Magic Reef earlier this month and I would not hesitate to recommend Magic Reef bungalows to anyone. Angela met us when we arrived and showed us the bungalow, there was a beautiful platter of tropical fruit waiting for us, plus teas/coffee and even breakfast for the next morning. The bungalows were very clean, with a... More

We had a fantastic stay at the Magic Reef bungalows and just can’t say enough about the customer service provided by owners Angela and Simon and their staff. They went above and beyond every day to make sure we were happy and comfortable. The bungalows are spacious and nicely decorated each with a private deck. We loved their beach; very... More

This is our third stay at Magic Reef, so that fact alone speaks for itself. When you arrive at Rarotonga airport the owners, Simon and Angela will personally meet you and transfer you to Magic Reef in an air-conditioned van. And take you back to meet your plane at the end of your stay. A fantastic fruit platter of mango,... More

Just had the most amazing 2 weeks staying at Magic Reef Bungalows. Spotlessly clean, beautiful gardens and unique pool. Angela and Simon are the perfect hosts and couldn't have been more helpful, from restaurant recommendations to best places to snorkel (and lots more). Not to forget the most amazing sunsets! This is the place to go if you are looking... More

we honeymooned there and this was the perfect place to do it. Staff were great and so helpful. The small touches made the difference from the hibiscus flowers placed around the bungalow to the personalised welcome and info sheet. It was so much fun exploring the different elements in the room from the carvings on the bed posts, the furniture,... More

My partner and I were looking for a relaxing quiet getaway before we started our seasons in the south pacific... Magic Reef was it! Right from the start, polite and friendly emails, to great staff always working extremely hard maintaining the beautiful grounds. The owners were away during our stay; however, they left the place in good hands with a... More
