My two adult kids and I stayed at The Little Poly for ten nights to celebrate my 50th Birthday and I can't fault this beautiful resort. The location is ideal, a hop, skip and a jump to Maire Nui Botanical Gardens and a short walk to Charlie's Cafe. The snorkelling is amazing

Our first time in the Cook Islands, and a long way from the UK. But such a beautiful holiday. So peaceful. Great accommodation, with showers in the bathroom and in the high-walled garden. The staff are professional, yet warm, welcoming and helpful. The food is wonderful, beach

At the Little Polynesian resort reality really matches the imagined scenes. Swaying plam trees, coconuts strewn along the beach, calm lagoon, distant sound of waves breaking over the edge reef, warmish water (way too cold for my aussie sensitivities however), tropical showers

Kia Orana Shannon. Thank you for your question. The outdoor baths at Little Polynesian Resort have been phased out. However the stunning infinity pool and lagoon are still there of course. We trust this suits and please let us know should you have any further queries. Little Polynesian Resort

Kia Orana Thank you for your question. A taxi from the airport to Little Polynesian Resort will be around NZD$50.00. Of course this is just an estimate as it will depend on the company used. Transfers can also be arranged through the resort itself. We hope this helps and have a lovely day. Meitaki Ma'ata (thank you) Little Polynesian Resort

Kia Orana Sgmay. Thank you for your reply. If you have booked from the 29th of May and arrive on the 29th at 1:30am, you would indeed need to book the night of the 28th for your room to be available. The standard check in time is 2:00pm, so that would be a considerable wait. This can be booked direct with the reservations team at Pacific Resort Rarotonga. We hope this helps and we look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful Cook Islands in May!

Comparative with NZ and Australia so not really that cheap. The markets are great for fresh fruit etc much better than at the shops. Great place to visit.

"They are all great rooms"
"Beachfront Apartments 5 & 6 are closest to the Reception Area and Restaurant so can be noisy during breakfast and Dinner hours"
"Eastern end for protection from wind"
"Get a beachfront room"
"Definitely worth paying extra for the Beachfront Bungalows, they are divine!"
