Reviewed September 6, 2011

We stayed here recently for 8 days and thoroughly recommend!!!
The hotel is very clean, excellent service and good security too.
We were upgraded to a beachfront view room ( internet special) and it was wonderful being able to look out over the lagoon.
A fresh tropical fruit drink on arrival and free massages each...Nice
The large pool area is very sheltered and each day we would enjoy happy hour here (cocktails for me). We liked the food here after a few disappointing experiences elsewhere. Grill night and pub night are VERY good value for money!! And good food.
The breakfasts provided for the guests each morning are just perfect.Always fresh fruits ( we had pawpaws )
I found all the staff great and very helpful and we would not hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: Book via the internet and get the specials offered.

We had a pleasant stay at the Muri Beach Club Hotel. It is a small, sleepy resort on the south side of the island. The front desk people were the best. They went above the call of duty to help us out. Making dinner reservations for us, opening the gift shop after hours so we could get some snacks, getting the car rental place to rent us a car even after they were closed for the day. Kudos to them. On the downside, the breakfast that was included with the price of the room was not that good. Watery orange juice, egg surprise (when it was even there) the same yogurt and fruit every day. The restaurant was poorly decorated and uninviting. Besides the breakfast, we rarely saw anyone eating there through out the day. The "Bar" consisted of about 6 wooden chairs facing away from the beach. The only thing going for the place was the view - why not exploit it? There was no drink service around the sparse guests at the pool. No complaints about the room. It was nice, clean and a great shower. Nice but not spectacular. If you are looking for a place to just sleep at night, this is an ok place. If you expect to spend most of your time at the hotel go elsewhere.

Location is excellent. Stayed in a beachfront room which certainly has the view but if you plan to sit on your balcony and enjoy the sun don't choose beachfront room, my recommendation would be choose pool view room upstairs - also you will miss the strong trade-wind that we experienced 7 out of our 8 day stay. If you experience the wind you definitely need to get in the kayak and paddle to the island across the water, the temperature lifts by many degrees and it totally misses the wind. Wish we discovered that earlier than we did. Definitely hire your motorbike from resort - the price is the same. Recommend Muri Beach Club Happy Hour.

Great lunches and service at Fishing Club not far from the Resort towards town, definitely had everything this NZ couple was looking for without pricey price-tags attached.

TV in Resort room was v.v.poor - a continuing rolling picture. Free 24/7 internet was down for 5 days and it wasn't till our second to last day I was offered use of the office internet. And meals at resort left a lot to be desired, however breakfast was adequate.

Would I stay at this resort again, probably not.
Did we have a great holiday, absolutely yes we did.

Room Tip: If you want full sun most of the day book upstairs pool facing room

We found the Muri Beach Club Hotel excellent. We stayed for a week in a Beachfront Room and thoroughly enjoyed it.
The room was spacious and comfortable; the housekeepers did a great job each day. The bathroom was big too, and there was a space for wet togs which was great.
The service was outstanding; every single member of staff was unfailingly polite and helpful. They seemed genuinely interested in how our day had been and were always cheerful.
Probably the best asset for the place is it's location. We woke up to a stunning view of the lagoon each day. We used the hotel's kayaks often; we thought they looked like the best on the beach because they were the only ones with proper back support.
As a couple, we found the hotel's adults-only policy wonderful. The hotel was very peaceful and children are even not allowed in the restaurant, so the quiet remains unbroken. We really appreciated this; it made a big difference to our enjoyment of the place.

We chose the Muri Beach Club Hotel partly because of its adults only policy, and also because we were told it was on the best beach on the island. We were certainly not disappointed – in fact, I would have to say you would be hard pressed to find a more perfect location on Rarotonga. The hotel is situated right on the shores of beautiful Muri Beach, directly opposite one of the tiny uninhabited motus which dot the lagoon, making for stunning views.
We received a warm welcome when we arrived, with the receptionist taking the time to show us around our room and explaining the facilities on offer. Throughout our whole stay we found all staff to be friendly and helpful and never had any issues. There are times when service may not be as prompt as you might expect at home, but you just accept that is island time, and just relax and enjoy the laid back atmosphere.
The restaurant was fresh and modern, but a little pricey and the food was fairly average for what you pay. In general we discovered the best restaurants on the island tended to be those not attached to resorts or hotels. Sails restaurant just a bit further down on Muri Beach is fantastic, and well worth spending a little extra. Miro’s Diner by the entrance to the driveway to the Muri Beach Club Hotel is a small, rather unassuming local café, but produced some of the nicest and most reasonably priced food we had during our stay – a great option for lunch.
The complimentary tropical breakfast each morning was great though, with a selection of tropical fruits, toast and spreads, cereals, and juice, tea and filtered coffee. The cocktails were also excellent – just $10 over happy hour (4-6pm).
The free use of kayaks and snorkel gear was fantastic, as it made it so easy to explore the lagoon and motus. It is true that there are better places to snorkel around the island, but we still saw heaps of different brightly-coloured fish in this part of the lagoon, as well as puffer fish and cornet fish. The lagoon is also shallower and sandier here than in other parts, making it excellent for swimming.
It was handy being able to hire scooters directly from the hotel, without having to go into town to queue to get a license from the Police Station. This is definitely the easiest and cheapest way to get around the island.
The pool looked lovely although we didn’t actually use it, preferring to swim in the lagoon. The rooms are also very modern and clean, but we would definitely recommend staying in a beachfront room if you can, as the views are beautiful, and you also get a nice sea breeze through your room, which helps keep the mossies at bay.
Loved every minute of our stay here – would definitely return.
