Very beautiful location, well presented villas, charming staff and owners. Excellent pool and beach area which is ideal for watching the amazing sunsets. We used the bungalow as a base to explore the island with a hire car. There are a few restaurants and bars in walking distance and town is only a short drive or bus ride away.

We loved our stay here. The accommodation was excellent and the staff (especially Nancy) and owners all very friendly, helpful and keen to get to know you. As it is on the west side of the island it is ideal for sunsets although the reef there is not as good for snorkelling as other parts of the island - however...

Absolutely loved our stay! Bungalows were beautiful - clean, good size, had everything you need. On the beach, nice and quiet and relaxed. Nancy and Angela were super helpful and friendly. Highly recommend getting the platter, a bottle of wine and enjoying the amazing west coast sunsets. Can't wait to come back!!

My hubby and I stayed at Magic Reef Bungalow during our honeymoon in Rarotonga. It's a beautiful place and the owners Simon and Angela, are very helpful and friendly. The true gem at the place is Nancy, who recommended and helped book the best places to visit. If we ever needed anything, she was always happy to help and made...

We choose Magic Reef Bungalows for several combined factors. It wasn't a hotel complex resort, it was on the sunset side of the island, on the beach and it was adults only bookings.

Two incredible weeks of pure magic. Thanks to my wife Ingrid she picked Magic Reef bungalows after reading others comments on Tripadvisor and they certainly didn't disappoint.

My daughter and I just spent the most amazing week at the Magic Reef Bungalows in Rarotonga, Cook Islands. The owners, Simon and Angela treat their guests more like friends than paying guests, and Nancy, who mans reception is an absolute gem......nothing is too much trouble for any of them. They were all willing to pass on helpful advice and...

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...
