My wife and I just returned from our honeymoon and we spent seven nights at Little Poly. Firstly the staff were all very friendly and helpful, the food was excellent and the room (we originally booked the garden room and got upgraded to the beach villa) was amazing. We didn't want to leave and couldn't speak more highly of our... More

My new husband and I spent 11 days at the little poly for our honeymoon and it was the best decision we ever made, not only is the hotel beautiful but the staff are friendly, helpful, professional and always up for a chat. The beach is amazing with great snorkling (the equipment is free to borrow from the resort) and... More

We landed in heaven here. Infinity pool, overlooking crystal clear turquoise water. Palm trees, coral beaches, turtles....just visit the Cook Islands!! Outside and inside showers, private beach - sunset with gin and tonic on the beach. Five days here was perfect and we loved the road - one around the island with a Clockwise and Anti Clockwise bus! The staff... More

We’ve just returned from our first trip, but definitely not our last, to the Cook Islands. We chose to stay at the Little Polynesian Resort based on previous Trip Adviser reviews, and were not disappointed. Sam and his team were fantastic. Our beachfront bungalow provided a beautiful coconut tree framed view of the crystal clear lagoon and reef which surrounds... More

We were drawn to the "boutique" beach bungalows (adults only) that over-looked a most romantic an protected lagoon and our expectations --we were NOT disappointed! Whether looking out over the blue azure waters of the lagoon from our bed or relaxing on the private outside daybed was just a heavenly way to 'unwind' as we listened to the waves break... More

Our destination wedding started with the perfect check in, the most astounding rooms & friendly service. This place is classy without being too posh & poncy. We were a party of 5, yet were treated like we were part of the Little Poly Whanau. If you are lucky enough to experience this place, you have truly lived.

So we'll start with Sam. He is the cornerstone of this wonderful resort. An incredibly generous hotel manager, with a fantastic team, a wealth of experience running hotels in Sydney, Hawaii & around the world and a wonderful knowledge of his island and its people.

Just amazing, we enjoyed every moment in our beach front bungalow! The rooms were just fantastic, loved the outdoor bath and shower. The beach front location was amazing. Facilities aside, what made this place amazing was the staff. From house keeping, to the resturant/bar staff and front office! A few quick emails and I had motor scooters, transfers and tours...

Our stay at The Little Poly truly could not have been better. The beachfront bungalows, "Are," were absolutely fantastic and the views from the resort are just gorgeous. The food at Little Poly's restaurant was great for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We dined at other places around the island, as well, but it was nice to have great food right... More
