My husband and I recently spent six nights at the Muri Beach Club Hotel and had a fantastic trip. From the moment we arrived we were well looked after and this continued throughout our trip.
We arrived at 6 in the morning and were told they would get our room ready as soon as they could. After a quick nap by the pool and a trip into town, our room was ready.
Our room was beautiful. We had a beachfront room and the view from our balcony of the beach and lagoon was spectacular. The room was clean and very spacious, with a nice big bed.
We were very impressed with the pool. It was clean, a good size and very attractive. The hotel was very quiet during out visit so we usually had the pool to ourselves.
On our first night we took advantage of the Happy Hour and enjoyed some very nice cocktails on the beach. Our servers were very helpful and friendly. Every time we saw them in the hotel after this, they said hello and addressed us by our name and asked us how we were. We also had a lovely dinner. The menu consisted of a nice range, including some local choices. The servings were big sizes and reasonably priced.
The breakfast was also very good. There was a good selection of hot and cold food. There was also a nice selection of fresh fruit.
The staff were all very friendly during our stay. They were all very helpful and quick to respond to our needs. They helped us book tours, hire scooters, find restaurants and book transfers. The free snorkeling equipment and canoes was also great.
The location of the hotel seemed to us to be the best on the island. We drove around the island and stopped at various places. And Muri Beach and the lagoon are by far the prettiest on the island and have the best swimming. And the hotel is right in the middle of this. There are also restaurants and small stores within walking distance.
During our stay the hotel had their Christmas party (the week we were there was their quietest around the time) and the restaurant was unavailable that night. To compensate us for this, the hotel gave us a $50 dinner voucher each plus a free drink each at a restaurant down the beach. They also arranged for a bus to take us there. We were very impressed with this. The staff are certainly entitled to a Christmas party and we just happened to be there during this time. We thought this was going above and beyond what we expected.
Our trip was fantastic and the Muri Beach Hotel made our stay even better. If we do come back to the Cook Islands we will definitely stay here again.
