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...

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...

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.

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...

This place is a really well organised small scale resort on one of the best beaches in Raro. The staff are very friendly and professional. Rooms are well equiped and private although our TV had no channels and the outdoor spa bath had leaves in it. We stayed in a Garden Bungalow which was nice but bear in mind you...
