We stayed here in a "Lagoon View" room in June 2008 and I must say that we were most impressed ! We were part of a wedding party of about 30 people so this gave us the ability to compare thier accommodations and compare to ours. Everyone made the comment that for the price we payed, ours was far superior - and we humbly had to agree!
Muri is the nicest place to stay in raro but as a result the prices are generally the highest on the island. But dont dispair Muri beach resort is much more reasonable than most others , with most rooms freshly renovated too.
The location is a little far from town but rental cars and scooters are easy to hire, and you really only need to venture into town for the Saturday markets or some food supplies. *hint Take frozen meat and snack foods if you can, as food is generally twice the price as in NZ here. example: 1.5L Coke $3.80 , bread $4.50.
There is a gas station/store just at the end of the driveway and also a 5 min walk up the road is the "deli-licious cafe" with $4 coffees and reasonably priced internet access.
Paul and Jane are excellent hosts, and the staff in general were all very friendly - which is hard to find these days!
We WILL return and stay here again. Lovely place to stay, and even nicer country :-)
