This is a hard review as I'd really class it at 3.5 stars I'll start the review by saying we had the most enjoyable time in Rarotonga and the owners and staff of Magic were wonderful in helping us enjoy it. We initially stayed on this side of the island due to it being child free, quite and beautiful sunsets....

These bungalows are right on the on the water with a brilliant view from every bungalow. We were staying in a beachfront bungalow with a magnificent view. Each bungalow has a kitchen, fridge, TV and DVD (you won't need it...trust me). The best part was the outside shower and bath. That was a massive selling point. The complex includes a...

This property is on the west side of the island - which is perfect to watch the subset. Comfortable self contained bangalows, and very relaxing vibe all around - since there are no restaurants or bars in the property it's always very peaceful. It's close enough to anything you need - nearby restaurants, bars, shops. Make sure to hire one...

Loved it so much last year that we returned but this time stayed 10 days and was not disappointed at all. It was so relaxing and having the use of the scooters was a big bonus. Nothing was a bother for Nancy, so friendly and helpful. It is perfect in every way and we are already planning visit number 3....

We had 7 lovely nights here in unit 6, which had a lagoon view and was very clean and well equipped. Nancy was very helpful, friendly and laid back and she booked meals and outings for us. We hired a scooter from Magic Reef for the whole 7 days, which made exploring and shopping very easy and the traffic was...

We were in room #1 about 30 metres from high tide. The view was second to none. The sun sets on the West coast of Rarotonga are absolutely beautiful.

My wife and I just returned from a fifteen night stay at the Magic Reef bungalows in Rarotonga. It was our first trip to the South Pacific and our experience could not have been better. The property is small (nine total bungalows) and it has a fabulous beach, beautiful landscaping and large cozy and well equipped bungalows. Each bungalow faces...

Very clean, grounds beautiful and well-tended. Angela and Simon are knowledgeable, helpful and go out of their way to make you feel like true guests, not customers. Nancy, the manager, is awesome. Very comfortable, fairly private. Maid service every other day. Beautiful outdoor shower and bath area with lovely lighting. Coffee press, with good coffee provided. Internet available for purchase,...

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Magic Reef after a week at another resort on the island followed by 4 nights in Aitutaki and it was a relaxing end to a great holiday. Magic Reef is perfectly situated right on the beach and the sunsets are spectacular. The architecture of the villas has a Balinese flavour to it...
