All the bungalows are exactly the same, they are priced differently based on their proximity to the beach. The bungalows are very generous in size with super king bed. Young couple who were operating the bungalows are friendly and helpful. They had a great range of gear, free to borrow, such as kayaks and snorkeling gear.

Spent a week at this chalet and it is very close to all the amenities you could want, food, shops, attractions, rentals. Irene & her staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. It is clean, my chalet was to the rear so I had no view of the ocean, but it is less than 50 yards to the beach. the only shortcoming was the lack of air-con, which in the current humidity was needed.

We stayed a week in this bungalow style accomodation which is exceptionally well located close to local eateries, attractions, hire places etc. it has a homey feel and whilst not shiny new is very much in keeping with the island atmosphere. You can self cater. Also a delightful friendly hostess. Recommended

There are a limited number of bungalows in the hideaway on a small plot. We had bungalow 2 bear the small pool with a grear view on the reef. We could see the sunrise from our bed. The setup of the bungalow was great. Behind the bed on one side a kitchen And on the other side the bathroom. Expect some dogs near your bungalow. The staff is friendly and offered us a great coconut at our arrival! Unfortunately no breakfast was served. No filtered water was available but we have found one bottled water in our fridge. Watersport material widely available The hideaway does not have complimentary transport to and from the hotel.

We stayed at the Muri Beach Hideaway for 2-nights in late-Apr (NZ$216/night). The Hideaway, located on a fairly narrow lot stretching from the beach to the island perimeter highway, consisted of 5 thatched-roof cabins, 3 clustered around the pool and 2 near the back. All appeared to have a similar layout, the only difference being that the front cabins had at least partial ocean views and those at the back were in a garden setting. Our cabin, one of the ones at the back, was fronted by a large covered deck and faced a small lawn area & thick hedge of banana trees (with fruit ripe for the picking) and other shrubs and a lily pad-covered creek. The cabin was rustic, basic & comfortable. The bedroom, with its peaked basket-weave roof, was large & spacious, furnished with a king bed & side tables, a kitchen table & 2 chairs, 2 lounging chairs & a low table, a closet for hanging clothes and some built-in shelves; no AC, but a strong ceiling fan & a standing fan, & a flat-screen TV (only 1 local channel that was almost impossible to see, so I'm not sure why they bothered). As well as a side window, the entire front of the cabin was windows, giving the room a room a light feel despite the pervasive wood decor. To one side at the back was a full kitchen (micro-wave, stove top, full refrigerator), to the other the bathroom. As a note, the tap water was not drinkable, but we filled our water bottles at a tap outside the community police station a short walk away. The hideaway had a small but nice pool & large wood deck with loungers that faced the beach, a fairly narrow stretch of brown sand that looked good for swimming/snorkeling (it was too windy & rainy for us to try it). There was complementary snorkelling equipment as well as sun screen & mosquito repellent (there were a few bugs, but no real problem). Roratonga is thankfully still a fairly undeveloped island; other than the capital, the rest of the island is dotted with a few tiny towns – Muri Beach is one of them. We could walk to all of its conveniences (which weren't many) – a few restaurants featuring burgers, pizza or Asian food, & 3 small convenience stores (think pop, beer & wine – not much in the way of fresh produce, and nothing to throw on the BBQ – if there was one). The best option for eating was the night market – devoted entirely to food – both the selection & prices were excellent, and throw in a bit of island culture to seal the deal. The manager was helpful – he arranged airport transportation ($20 pp), cut down coconuts, & nicely offered to store a bag for us while we were visiting other islands. Overall, a nice, comfortable, rustic experience – don't stay here if you are looking for luxury, but it was a pleasant introduction to the island pace for us.
