We have visited Raro 5 times and this is the best accom we have ever encountered. The bungalows are extremely well equipped. Vast bed, lots of sitting options, bath and two shower options (rain head and wand head). All the little bits and pieces (toiletries, coffee and tea options etc). All the fittings are of highest quality (no plastic deckchairs... More

My husband and I stayed at the Magic Reef Bungalows for 10 blissful days to celebrate 10 years of marriage from May 28 through June 7 of 2014 and the whole trip overall was just amazing. We're from California, have four kids, and lead a very good but busy life. The staff at Magic Reef Bungalows is so helpful and... More

The bungalows are beautifully presented and spotlessly clean and the tropical gardens and pool are gorgeous. Great location, very central but also quiet and relaxing. Weather was overcast and drizzly most days but the sea was warm, the cocktails delicious and the friendliness of our hosts outstanding. We felt as if we were visiting friends and that nothing was a... More

The resort has very friendly hosts and we enjoyed their hospitality.unfortunately we had chosen a week for our holiday that was rather wet so we spent much more time in our bungalow than I would have liked. Everything at Magic Reef is very wellness cared for and the communal area at the edge of the beach is a delight to... More

Gorgeous, personal, friendly boutique accommodation right on the beach. Great in every way. Lots of swaying palm trees, beautiful sunsets, very good restaurants close by, very friendly owners and staff, outdoor (mostly covered) bathrooms (!) which we both loved. Very easy to access other parts of the island.

Young couple.We stayed for a few days at magic reef and there is nothing we can complain about! The location on the island is perfect: town 10min driving, on the good side of the island for sunsets ( and less wind!!), beautiful beach in front with a jetty very close (good spot for fishing;)). Also good spot for snorkeling 5... More

We booked a last minute trip to Rarotonga and stayed at Magic Reef with our 15 year old son. This was our first time to The Cook islands (we usually holiday in Fiji) and have to say it exceeded our expectations. Both of us have worked in the hospitality industry for 30+ years and managing large hotels/resorts overseas as well... More

What sets Magic Reef apart is the owners and staff. Angie and Simon are really friendly, helpful and passionate. They care about the environment and want to make your stay special. There are 9 bungalows and they are all well maintained and attractive. There is a pool to swim in as the beach is a bit shallow for swimming. The... More

I stayed in these sensational bungalows with friends for a week for a wedding that was also held on the beach in front of the bungalows. I cannot emphasise enough how amazing this place is. It's beautiful, relaxed and the owners (Angela and Simon) were helpful beyond belief. The bungalows themselves have everything you could need and are a home... More
