This resort unit cost us $400 a night. Was not good value for the money. Two single ladies, one bedroom, other single bed put in the small lounge. Had to shift sofa and coffee table each night to allow easy entry to bed. No telephone, no safe, no view of sea although we could see it when we stepped out...

Just came home yesterday from Muri Beach Resort. Travelled with a group of 17, using 8 different villas and we were impressed! Such a great location and the service was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and I felt the staff went above and beyond to help us celebrate a birthday for one of our party. It was great being...

Beautiful sea view room with about 5 steps to the sea, and a couple of close islands to swim or kayak to. The food could do with quite some improvement and the wine list is average. The staff are fabulous!

Muri Beach is definately the best location on Rarotonga, and the Muri Beach Resort great placce to stay. I stayed with my parents for a week over christmas. The villas are basic but clean and comfy, and theres a great pool and dining area. But the highlight is the location. Situated right on the lagoon you can use the resorts...

I stayed at Muri Beach Resort for a couple of nights. A small resort right on the Muri Beach - that allows the use of non motorised water sports for free. Yes - perfect for me. My villa was nicely air conditioned with ceiling fan, and my room had cooking facilities, and with the corner shop 2 minute walk away,...

What an amazing place to stay! Staff were all so friendly and helpful. The room was perfect for us, even had a little kitchen so we could store cold food and drinks, and we could have cooked if we wanted. The bathroom was so clean and there was even a spa bath! Facilities were all so clean and tidy. There...

The garden villa provided everything we needed to be self sufficient, plus secluded outdoor loungers and table and chairs if you wanted time to relax on your own. Close to the Aqua Bar and the pool. The resort provided paddle boards and kayaks, snorkels, masks and reef shoes. Breakfast was part of the deal and was at the neighbouring resort...

Good location, that's about it...much nicer places to stay close by for cheaper. The place is Eco-friendly which basically means they don't have to clean it. The bathroom needed a good scrub with jif, and the rooms themselves have dirty linen and curtains. The bar was hardly ever open...I would stay at Muri Beachclub next time.
