As far as rarotonga is concerned this is the best service ive had on the island. I dined at the restaurant with my family and the waiter was so kind. He learnt 2 members of our groups name and kept refering to them by there name which was cool. The food here is average . For example we ordered brushetta... More

Amazing place, words can not truly explain the most wonderful time we had at the Little Poly. Arriving late at night to be met by Vani with a huge smile started our escape off magically. Beachfront villa and awoke the first morning to the most beautiful place on earth ... Coconut trees swaying in the breeze and a brilliant blue... More

The location is one of the best on the island, the beach is so private and perfectly manicured (it was raked daily). Every staff member was so friendly and each request was always dealt with a smile. We had a beachfront villa - those 7-10 are the best and we were lucky enough to score '10', it is right at... More

We were booked into a garden room (number 14), in which you could hear a constant hum from some generator or something near the kitchen and the comings and goings and deliveries etc at reception which is right next door. Plus the ringing of the reception phone. We coped with all that until all hell broke loose at around 8pm... More

We chose a holiday in the Cook Islands as we needed a relaxing pause. Little Poly was the perfect place for this. As a small resort it has a personal intimate feel with the staff going out of their way to make your stay special. Our on the beach room was spacious and airy, very comfortable bed, generous house keeping... More

We've just returned from a wonderful 10 days at The Little Polynesian at Titikaveka beach, Rarotonga. We stayed in one of the beach front bungalows and the rooms can't be faulted - lovely seating area at the front overlooking the stunning beach, massive and super-comfortable bed, small kitchenette (read: Fridge), TV, DVD player, daybed, walk in rain shower and small...

We booked a Garden Unit ten weeks out from our holiday. On advice from others who had stayed and trip advisor reviews we booked at the Little Polynesian over Sanctuary - particularly as the Garden Unit's had private spas. We were disappointed on arrival to be told that all the spa's at the resort had been replaced with gardens due... More

Little Poly was fabulous! We stayed in a beachside bure and woke every morning to see the ocean from bed. The bure was very comfortable and the outside shower and spa bath was a dream. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. You wont be disappointed.

I have been to Cook Islands on a couple occasions now and I hands down loved staying at Little Polynesian Resort. The location of the rooms are stunning. Right on the absolute most beautiful beach with snorkeling on the entire island. Some reviews discussed the rooms needing a little updating. I can see their points. But I will definitely take...
