Our ideal accommodation. Great location - handy to night food markets which offer generous helpings of really good fresh food for about NZ$15.00, lagoon cruises, restaurants, shops etc. It is off the main road, so is quiet and right by the lagoon and beautiful white sand beaches. Our lagoon view 1 bedroom villa was comfortable, relaxed, clean, private, sunny and... More

Fantastic idyllic setting right on lagoon front. 3 bedroom villa has beautiful views with great rustic charm. 2 steps from deck into crystal clear lagoon with great snorkelling at your doorstep. 3 bedroom villa gave plenty of room for family of 5 to spread out and enjoy some space. Staff were fantastically friendly and Rachael made you feel welcome from... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the villas. They are in the process of being improved as they had reportedly been a little run down before - progress so far is good. They are clean and comfortable with good facilities for self catering. Rachel, the manager, was very helpful and has a wealth of knowledge about the area. The location,... More

We had the beachfront three bedroom villa and friends had a 1 bedroom unit. Both were tidy and the three bedroom villa gave us heaps of room to spread out (with balconies on both level. This is a true beach front property with nothing but a few rocks between the balcony and the water. We virtually had the pool and... More

Five of us booked in to Villa 8 and 3 bedroom villa with 2 bathrooms and a full kitchen. For a budget conscious family this was the perfect option. Beds were very comfortable. The upstairs bathroom had no ventilation or window so tended to get steamed up. The women who serviced our villa each day were friendly, as was Sonny... More

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

This hotel is in the perfect area in Rarotonga, Muri Beach is the place to be. Very close to activities, restaurants, Bars etc. We had the river view cottage, each room was very good size, large beds and one room had AC. Was surprised to see food for us to use in fridge e.g. milk, cereal, butter, jam etc. Apart... 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.

maneabeachvillas, Manager at Manea Beach Villas, responded to this review

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
