Our group of five enjoyed staying at the 3bedroomed chalet overlooking the little river. Watching the crabs, chickens and local dogs was entertaining. At first it seemed to be too rustic and the arrival breakfast was not adequate enough to feed 2 teenage boys and three adults, as there was everything but bread. We discovered later that the shop at...

We booked the 3 bedroom beach front villa for our family of five and stayed 11 nights. The location is absolutely breath taking however access to the beach area is obstructed by large boulders. I realise these have been placed there to stop erosion. However it is dangerous especially for the elderly and young children to gain access to the...

We booked this accommodation for a significant family birthday celebration. After the recommendation from our travel agent and also through reviewing trip advisor we decided to proceed with the booking. We wanted something that had the option of self catering, slept 5 adults comfortably, beach access, a pool and was based at Muri Beach. It seemed to tick all those...

Certainly the 3-bedroom beachfront villa was perfectly located for a Rarotonga stay for a family with young adults. Staff and management were helpful and friendly, and the facilities just fine. Despite a week of strong wind blowing directly into our front door we didnt let it stop us getting around and enjoying more sheltered spots - it would be just...

We stayed in Villa six and it was great. Pefect location, great value. A wee skip over the rocks and you are on the beach or swimming...actually a point to be made here is that there are no steps to the beach you have to walk over a couple of big rocks, which was no issue for us, but would...

We booked the garden house and two of the one bedroom villas for a week for our extended family celebration. What a huge success it was for us all, ranging in ages from 24 to 60 and made extra special by Maryanne and her happy team! The location is great as they are almost at the end of the famous...

Don't stay in the garden villa! the other villas are much more like what you would expect a holiday place to be. We'd heard great things about how relaxing Raro was and had been told about Muri, so we felt we had booked the right place. However, the Garden Villa is in need of serious refurbishment, and has a pretty...

“The lagoon view villas have better chairs in the living room, and I think the wind helps cool them down a little more than the others.”
  • TV was pretty comical. Very old school, but there's only one channel and it's pretty bad
  • Comfy chairs. The non-lagoon view rooms have other wicker chairs (not as comfy as these deep one
  • Spacious kitchen with everything I needed
  • Ceiling fan really helped keep the air fresh and cool
  • View out to the lagoon from living room
  • Bed is 2 twin beds pushed together. Not uncomfortable but not the best I've slept in either.
