Muri Beach Resort is awesome. Felt incredibly relaxed the whole time we were there. The staff are so friendly and accomodating. The only thing I will say is I think the bathroom needs a little bit of a renovation. I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend to others. Will be back

Great place with nice clean and tidy bungalow accommodation.

We (myself, husband and 7 year old Son) stayed at the Muri Beach Resort in July 2016. We have been to Rarotonga 3 times and each time in a different resort. We think MBR is the nicest of the three.
