We stayed at Little Poly this past May for 11 nights, during our stay we got married on the beach front. We are so glad that we chose the Little Poly for our wedding - for us it was perfect. We stayed in a beach front room and although it was more expensive it was well worth it. All of...

Drop dead gorgeous setting, but avoid like the plague and you won’t be left feeling like we did; well ripped off. I have politely asked for an email address, so that I could candidly put my concerns to management. Sadly, but also rudely, those requests remain unanswered. I hope you have the time to read this review, because if you...

We have stayed at a number of luxury beach resorts, mostly in Thailand. Little Polynesian disappointed. The expected “warm” welcome just did not happen. We were handed a drink and taken to our overbeach villa but given no information about the island. The manager did not introduce himself, and neither did any of the other staff, during our 4 day...

We were so pleased with the ambiance, setting and service at this small hotel. We had a beautiful room on the beach and were very relieved to have such lovely accommodations. We had been on a sailboat for 3 weeks and this was such place to unwind. We ate dinner, breakfast and lunch there and why not? All the meals...

My wife & I stayed at the Little Poly for four nights as part of our round the world honeymoon trip last month and everything about our stay there was perfect. The service was incredible from the moment we arrived to the moment we got to the airport to jet off to our next destination. Upon arrival we were met...

Just returned from a fantastic week at the Little Poly. My husband and I enjoyed total relaxation in the most beautiful bungalow with the beach at our doorstep. The staff were extremely helpful, the food was excellent with the restaurant overlooking the pool and beach. You can walk for miles on the beach and snorkel right outside your door. What...

We had the pleasure of having our dream wedding at the Little Poly in May and what a special place it is! Ovaia, Heiarii, Sam and the rest of the team made our stay a memorable one. The beach ares are absolutely amazing! Gorgeous views of the lagoon and complete luxury inside. The outside bath was wonderful to relax in...

We have just returned from a wonderful 11 nights at the Little Poly. Really attentive staff. Nice bar and restaurant, fantastic beach and great location close to Muri, but just far enough away. We ate a lot of meals at the Little Poly and enjoyed them. Hidden Spirit Gardens and cafe very close for another option which we also enjoyed...

There are many resorts around Rarotonga competing for the tourist dollar but this place is well worth a try. We got an excellent rate as a walk in and compared to the other rooms and bungalows we looked at this place was what we were after. Right on the beach, great views, pleasant service and good breakfast included. The rooms...

“Beachfront preferable. Garden rooms very adequate and pleasant, but smaller. They have microwaves which ocean front don't have.”

“the bungalows on the beach are a dream, they open out onto a private white sandy beach, with a beautiful lagoon where it is safe to swim.”

“I'd recommend choosing villas 7, 8, 9 or 10 - they're furthest from the main reception area and main road.”
