A week at Magic Reef really lived up to expectation, snorkelling off the beach, whale watching from the beachfront viewing platform, swimming in the pirate ship pool, watching the sun set each day - simply beautiful. Gill, Jayne and staff were available to answer all of our questions. Being able to hire an electric car on site made getting around the island easy.

We are regular travellers to Rarotonga and have stayed in a variety of accomodation. We were so impressed with Magic Reef Bungalows last year that we booked the same accomodation for this year. The absolute beach front is exactly that, and our deck sat on the beach with many a relaxing hour spent watching surf breaking on the reef and just beyond the passing whales. Well furnished bungalow serviced unobtrusively by friendly staff every second day. Managers office more than happy to provide advice and help, and owner on-site most days and more than happy to have a chat. Great swimming pool and newly developed onsite parking available.

I would highly recommend Magic Reef to anyone! Trust the staff! Jane and Gill are absolutely amazing, friendly and have so much knowledge for things to do around the island! A warm welcome of a fruit platter followed by excellent service. An absolute paradise retreat! Clean, quiet, peaceful, and full of resources to use at your own leisure. ( I highly recommend beauty therapist, she’s amazing!!! ) The staff are so laid back and yet deliver quality and flexible service nothing was to much of an ask... a pleasure to stay at Magic Reef and we shell sea you again!!

We stayed for 9 nights. Our bungalow was second back from the beach. Upon arriving at 3am we were annoyed as we expected a king size bed and 2 single beds - as noted on ALL the booking sites. Instead there was a king size bed and a very dodgy looking sofa bed which angled down and one could feel the metal bars under the mattress. Over the next 2 days, the accom rectified this, firstly bringing in 1 single bed and then another single bed when we explained our situation. Some breakfast staples were supplied for our first morning and were most adequate. We enjoyed the privacy of the bungalow, the deck lounges and view of the beach. The pool was clean and larger than the pictures online depict. Usually we were the only ones in the pool or on the lounges at the beach. It often felt like we had the property all to ourselves. There were a couple of minor nuances. Keeping in mind the bungalow sleeps up to 4 people. There were only 2 teaspoons, 2 tablespoons, 2 mugs and 2 dining chairs. We were also annoyed on our second last day when staff expected us to move to a bungalow set further back in order to accommodate new guests arriving who had requested a beachfront bungalow. We had no idea that we had actually been upgraded to a beachfront bungalow in the first place as all bungalows have ocean views. This was very disappointing but we managed to sort it out and stay put. Overall, we loved our stay here. The location is excellent. We would be happy to stay here again.

An absolute wonderful experience! Owner Lawrence and manger Gillian were very welcoming and accommodating. Resident cat “The Captain” was adorable! The grounds were immaculate and bungalows outstanding — topped off with the outdoor shower and views to die for. We stayed two nights in late April and wish it could’ve been longer prior to heading off to Aitutaki. Thank you for your hospitality! Kevin and Adrienne
