Amazing views! I stayed for 3 nights in a beach bungalow, and had a great time. During the daytime the sun was shining, and at night the sky was smiling. The room I stayed in was very clean and had a lot of atmosphere. The doors and windows have screens and blinds. So, I didn't need air conditioning all my... More

A brilliant location on the lagoon, with sun lounges and water sports equipment (including canoes) at the ready. Our garden studio was lovely, from the hammock on the deck to the clean and well appointed room. We ate at the restaurant and the food was delicious. The show on Thursday night was also a highlight. The staff were friendly and... More

We stayed for 4 nights in Beachfront Bungalow, excellent - roomy, quiet and all the flowers on arrival made it seem even more magical. As opposed to another review, we didn't mind the cat who adopted us made it feel more like home. We had been in Raratonga for 6 days before & it was great to unwind more at... More

We were disappointed that the bar by the pool was never in operation. Also that the happy hour was only once a week, on the Saturday evening, held in the reception area. It was very annoying having rugby on the TV screen, especially when young local boys came in, yelling at the screen.............................. The food was excellent and the staff... More

So we're all amped and ready to catch some Cook Island rays, and it rains and blows a gale for the whole time we are there bar half an afternoon. So we read and walked and ate. Great food, although having cats annoy you in the open air restaurant is bad when you have cat allergies. Lizards on ceilings, land... More

Really enjoyed my stay despite being quite unwell the whole time. Staff were happy and willing to book day trips and arrange pick ups etc. Rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable and the staff helpful and friendly. Fellow visitors were delightful and friendly, great shared facilities and equipment - kayaks to snorkels and the beach and lagoon an absolute delight.... More

Temanu Beach Resort was an awsome place to stay. The rooms were clean, comfortable and well serviced. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The lagoon at your doorstep is just amazing and the snorkelling is a must. Temanu Beach has a real Cook Island vibe even down to the wake up call by the roosters :)I truly do... More

Excellent spacious bungalow and very friendly staff made this a memorable trip. Will go back for more for sure. Staff were very helpful arranging everything from scooter hire to restaurant bookings to lagoon snorkelling and fishing cruises. Remember to take good earplugs unless you like the 4:00am wake-up call from the local roosters. This is a Cook Island phenomena though... More
