We stayed here after staying in Aitutaki, and it was a great change of pace. The Villas are beautiful, comfortable, and relaxing, while in the center of Muri beach with great access to food and activities. The beds are incredibly luxurious! The air conditioning works very well! The complementary breakfasts arrived on time and were more than enough to eat...

We stayed for 6 nights in April 2017. The location is beautiful and the facilities are excellent.

From our reception at the airport to our wave goodbye, our stay at Te Vakaroa was first class. The accommodation was luxurious, clean, and enchanting in every way.

We stayed five nights at Te Vakaroa Villas after a week in New Zealand. This was our first trip to the Cook Islands, so we did not know what to expect for lodging.
