We stayed in one of the beachfront villa's. Superb view and the villa was very clean and well kept. The spa bath is an added bonus after a long day out and about exploring. The friendly staff were always ready to help when needed, even went the extra mile to accommodate our late checkout. The resort is well maintained and...

We stayed in the two bedroom garden view room with another couple for 4 nights. Once they left we moved to another resort further around the island. This was very much a family resort with quite a few children running around - Unfortunatly we are not big fans of children. Although the kids were good even the sound of happy...

We recently spent a week at MBR, with many family and friends, to celebrate our wedding. The self contained villas are great for families with kids, giving you the option to whip something up for the kids if there tummy's haven't figured out the time difference.

Self-serviced rooms, with most if not all amenities. Great kitchen in the 2 b/room units and shared BBQ facilities. Newly refurbished, clean and ideal location, right on Muri Beach. We stayed in the 2 bedroom, fully air conditioned unit. Take your own DVDs as TV in the Cooks is not very reliable, nor the internet which can be expensive. Take...

We visited Rarotonga in April 2011 and we stayed at three different places. Muri Beach Resort was beautiful and affordable - located on the best beach in Rarotonga! The rooms were spacious and clean and the resort had a beautiful pool and eating area. The resort is small, quiet and secluded so you can truely relax and unwind.

The only place to stay in Rarotonga is the beauiful, Muri Beach Resort. Nestled on the lagoon and absolute beach frontage these small group of cabins are an outstanding choice. If you desire peace and quiet with a dash of Pacific Island friendly socializing then Muri Beach Resort is for you. They welcome kids, couples and singles. With a brand...
