My friends and I visited just before Christmas to spend some time together. The room was right on the beach, with a little deck, table and chairs and had everything we needed for our stay. Beds were comfy, accommodation was clean, located close to a handy wee shop. The hostess was super friendly and helpful; everything was PERFECT was a... More

We stayed at the sunrise beach bungalows just before Christmas for a get together it was gorgeous!!! The beach on your doorstep shops nearby and everything you need to stay self contained if you want. I would highly recommend staying here it is not a resort it is real and really beiatiful!!!

This was our first visit to the Cook Islands and we didn't know what to expect. Caryn was of great help and made sure our first days went perfectly smoothly (airport pick-up, motorbike rentals, Muri tikitour), overall a great introduction to Rarotonga. We booked the waterfront bungalow and enjoyed the peaceful setting. Don't expect a 5 star resort but the... More

This is our second stay at Sunrise in the past 4 months. Everything was great. Caryn was at the airport waiting when we arrived at 6:30 AM. Our oceanfront room was ready and she let us check in early at no extra cost. Caryn had organized a car rental for us and took us down to the office when they... More

Sunrise bungalows are superbly located, close to the beautiful Murri beach and convenient to the main township of Avarua. Absolute waterfront bungalows are available and if you're lucky you might have whales frolic playfully right out in front of you. The bungalows are spotlessly clean and well equipped for a holiday stay. Caryn the hostess is absolutely wonderful, offering plenty... More

What a great place to stay the best location and the best price. Watching the whales while breakfasting on the front porch was one of the highlights of our stay. We were so well looked after even though we made an error with the time line change and had not booked for our first night Caryn had realised our error... More

Nice location (close to the prettiest lagoon in the island at Muri beach, though adding a scooter/bike hire is really recommended). Seaview bungalows will let you watch the sunrise every morning from your bed, and you will hear the sound of the waves all night long (personally I love it). Caryn is a lovely host. Arranged our first 2 nights... More

If you make a reservation here, it is very unlikely that the room you book will be available when you arrive. I have stayed twice, both times my room of choice was unavailable. Both times I was picked up from the airport between 30-60 mins late. I booked directly through the hotel website each time. Apparently the booking site does... More
