Great place with nice clean and tidy bungalow accommodation. Two for one cocktail happy hour at the Aqua bar was good fun - though for the love of god could someone make them change the mix tape - (If I hear "Island Nights" by Dragon one more time, I swear....) This was out first trip to Rarotonga and this place... More

We were met at the airport by Margaret who was very informative about the island even at silly o clock in the morning. We were staying here to go to a wedding at Muri Beach Club. We chose Muri Beach Resort because we liked the idea of being self contained and able to cook if we chose to.Our unit was... More

The restaurant service and food was great, very personalized. Its a small resort so very quiet and private which we enjoyed. Special thanks to the Resort driver Margaret who saved us when our...

We (myself, husband and 7 year old Son) stayed at the Muri Beach Resort in July 2016. We have been to Rarotonga 3 times and each time in a different resort. We think MBR is the nicest of the three. Great location on Muri Beach, central enough to feel part of the Muri Beach things going on, i.e kayaking, restaurants... More

The rooms are a little tired, however it is in a great location and the staff were extremely friendly. Food from the restaurant was only average, however next door at the sister resort the food was outstanding. Bed was way to soft!

Perhaps getting a little tired but still very comfortable and very reasonably priced by comparison with its immediate neighbours, Meridian & Pacific resorts.Strangely,if you feel like a cold one with your lunch, the bar and restaurant don;t open until 3.00pm

Loved everything about our stay. Pool is sheltered from on shore breezes. All the staff friendly and very helpful. Margaret, the shuttle driver makes you feel welcome from the moment you arrive at the airport. The cocktails are tops and became a daily occurrence for all of us.

Having visited the island several times, I believe Muri is the place to stay and MBR represents great value in the heart of the area. Less than 2 minutes walk from activities and a shop at the end of the driveway, it is a perfect place to escape. Friendly staff and clean, spacious villas make it an easy holiday. November... More
