We have recently returned from Rarotonga and overall had a great holiday. We didn't stay at this resort but went to the cafe to take advantage of the advertised 'poolside' dining. the prices that we were charged for our drinks were higher than those on the menu and when I queried this the man looking after the cafe became quite...

Luxurious and restful hotel. Perfect location right on the beach and wonderful staff made our holiday doubly enjoyable. Highly recommended. We will return.

We stayed with a large family group - 19 of us - in August 2011 for ten days. We had actually stayed here before and booked this place again as we had loved the BBQ area on our previous visit and found this a great place to gather for a large group. The individual units allowed all of us to...

My wife and I stayed here for a week in late September, thinking Fiji would be too clogged with school-holidaying families. We chose wisely. Picked up from the airport in the wee hours of the morning by Margaret in her taxi van, she not only carried our bags but checked us into our unit! Arose next morning to step out...

This is a nice self catering hotel located towards the end of Muri Beach. The rooms are very adequate and have all you need to prepare breakfast & basic meals. We stayed in a large open plan style room that could accommodate up to 5 guests, perfect for a family. The property itself is nice and the pool area is...

Our holiday was so good we are already planning to return. It was great having a self servicing villa with the option of cooking at home or going to one of the many restaurants nearby. Lots of extras added to our enjoyment such as Toby the very friendly gardener "help yourself to the bananas hanging by the pool", kayaks, snorkelling...

We loved it here - the apartments were clean, light, private and well equipped, the gardens are beautiful and the lagoon setting is too. We like to be independent and we could come and go as we liked but the staff were helpful if we did need to ask for anything.

Staff were so friendly and helpful-nothing was too much trouble for them. Rooms very comfortable/spacious/clean. Am definitely planning to return to rarotonga and would not go past Muri Beach Resort for accommodation.

The resort was very comfortable and the villa was quite spacious with a separate seating area which we found we used a lot. It was nice to have a lounge area to sit in when we watched TV some evenings instead of having to lie on the bed. We chose the daily service option with breakfast included which I would...
