Just back from our third stay at Magic Reef Bungalows. In May for the last three years, we have spent a week relaxing at the beautiful bungalows. Can't bet the relaxing outdoor bath or reading on the beach front with the sound of the waves lulling you into an afternoon snooze. The location is perfect for us - close to...

We stayed for five days in the 'Absolute Beachfront' bungalow and absolutely loved in. The Kiwi owners, Simon and Angela, are lovely and couldn't do enough to make us happy. They even went so far as introducing us to some personal friends in order to help us out. The location is ideal. Right on the beach with an unobstructed view...

Our bungalow was tidy, well-equipped and had a lovely sunset...

My Twin sister has just visited me from the UK and I booked a 5 night break at the Magic Reef Bungalows as a treat for her. What a wonderful time we have had, the accomodation was spotless, very well equiped and was done in a authentic Polynesian style which was cozy and full of charm. The grounds and gardens...

Thank you to Simon and Angela for your amazing hospitality! The accommodation lived up to the pics and the reviews. My newly acquired husband and I had a wonderful honeymoon listening to the waves crash on the reef, being woken by the birds, looking up into the coconut trees whilst having a bath or shower and being cared for by...

The property is located on the west side of the island where you get to view the sunsets. The Kiwi owners will try to make your stay as comfortable as possible, in fact the bed was very comfortable. Our Polynesian style bungalows are the perfect size for a couple and we had our teenager with us so they brought in...

My Wife and I just returned from 11 days on Rarotonga and 4 days in Auckland. We stayed at Magic Reef and we were so happy we did. Everything was more or less perfect. No problems whatsoever. If you really want to be "off the radar" then Raro and especially Magic Reef is the place to escape to. They have...
