5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I was here with a girlfriend a year ago and I absolutely loved it. The Villas are indeed basic, but who needs more, you do not come here to spend time indoors. I loved the outdoor deck infront of the villa, and spent many happy mornings there talking to Sonny, he brought me exotic fruit for my breakfast every day.... More

Only came across Manea after another booking fell through for our final night in the Cooks and all I can say is Thank God! Rachel who runs it is awesome. Nothing was too much trouble. To be honest I wasn't expecting much after reading previous reviews so was pleasantly surprised to find the Beachfront 3 bedroom Villa was fabulous. Gorgeous... More

Manea Beach Villa's are the perfect place to stay if you are on a budget and not looking for luxury accommodation. We stayed in the riverside villa and it was very basic but was comfortable and had everything we needed. It was in a nice location away from the main road but still close to restaurants and bars. The beach... More

Great place if you want to disconnect totally as the Telecom Hotspot wifi does not really work and TV reception in villa 4 was random. The lagoon out front is clear but has a lot of sea slugs and green weed which is a sign of pollution. Very relaxing if that's what you want.

Many thanks for taking the time to comment upon your stay with us. Manea Beach Villas is a step away from technology and so is the Cook Islands. It oozes relaxation especially with being on Beautiful Muri Lagoon - with nearly your own private beach. Unfortunately television is erratic all over the island, and the WIFI HOTSPOT is best received,... More

We travelled with our extended family and we're looking for a three bedroom villa with a pool and by the beach. While the property met those criteria unfortunately the www promotional photos over state the true condition of the complex. The pool area and the pool itself is in need of major maintenance. A building that appears to have once... More

Manea Beach Villas is a 3 Star, quaint beachfront fully self serviced accommodation - being beachfront it does mean it is open to the elements of nature and unrestricted view of the Lagoon and more. Manea Beach Villas has recently changed management and we really appreciate your comments We are fully aware of the upgrade needed. This is in process........ More

A wonderful location in Rarotonga for a family holiday. We have just returned from 3 weeks of relaxation and family fun times. Such a quiet peaceful location with easy access to the Muri Lagoon and all that the Muri area has to offer. Lovely pool over looking the lagoon, kayaking and snorkelling. Excellent deck for outdoor dining and entertaining. Our... More

Our class of 2009 came here and rented out one of the little houses and stayed for the weekend. We had loads of fun in this peaceful environment. We enjoyed midnight swims in the pool and our stay was an amazing experience. This place is awesome and such a cute house! Money worth spent.

We have just spent 9 nights here and it was a perfect spot at Muri. Easy access from the pool down to the beach... In fact you can gaze at the lagoon from the pool... The one bedroom villa was clean and had everything we needed. They put a rollaway bed in the lounge for our 6 year old which... More
