Just returned from 11 nights in ocean front unit 5 at this gorgeous property. The layout and design of the units is perfect. Views from very comfortable king-sized bed directly out to stunning beach and distant reef. Large private deck with adequate outdoor furnishings. Loved the spacious bathroom with twin basins, sep toilet and large shower - plus a private...

We recently spent a week at the Little Poly, everything was perfect from the moment we arrived late at night, to be met with a lovely warm welcome, right through to the day we left. All the staff, from the gardener, through the domestic staff, the waiting on staff and the hotel management went out of their way to ensure...

We didn't know much about the Cook Islands so had never really considered Rarotonga as a holiday destination - but it wasn't until a random deal popped up on the Luxury Escapes app for The Little Polynesian (or The Little Poly - as it's known to the locals) that we even considered it. For the past 10 years we've always...

My wife surprised me with this vacation, and we both ended up surprised (we are in our early 50's)! We have never had such a wonderful experience. We were looking for a place that was warm, beautiful beaches, and quiet. We got that and more. I feel what made this vacation so blessed was not only the resort, but the...

My husband and I stayed at the Little Polynesian Resort last week on vacation and could not have had a better experience. Any request we had was cheerfully met and we were given a room upgrade--beach front! The entire staff was wonderful and accommodating. The owner was on site frequently, also. The chef made outstanding meals. We will definitely be...

A small hotel with 10 beautiful bungalows on the lagoon. What is perhaps most remarkable is the willingness of the staff to accommodate all your wishes. Anyway some drawbacks. Bungalows are close from one another and you and you can hear what's happening next door. There is a small river next which brings a lot of mud when it is...

Simply one of the best resorts we have stayed in. Our flight was delayed so they rang our driver to enquire what was happening so we were confident we had picked a great resort. There are only 14 rooms, 10 of which are overlooking the lagoon, at one of the prettiest outlooks on the island. We stayed in room 10...

We were meant to travel with our mother but she was unable to travel at the last minute due to health reasons.

From the moment we arrived from check in to check out, we received awesome service. From the manager to the reception staff and house keeping. We were shown around our Beach Bungalow which was professional and left to settle in. Wow what a location and such a lovely and clean bungalow.

“Beachfront preferable. Garden rooms very adequate and pleasant, but smaller. They have microwaves which ocean front don't have.”
