We spent 9 days in the two bedroom bungalow with our 7 year old and 1 year old. The first thing I noticed was how nice, fresh and clean it was. There were gorgeous flowers awaiting our arrival. It is also SO close to the beach - like 100m - plus a 2 minute walk to the shop and night... More

Dorothy's really is a home away from home. It's modern, clean and has all the facilities you need (cooking, washing machine etc). Fantastic value for money. A short walk to the beach and in the heart of Muri - in close proximity to shops with food and a pharmacy etc. Lovely outlook with beautiful gardens. Transfers available to/from the airport....

We had a great two week stay at Dorothy's Bungalows. Our two bedroom accommodation was spacious with a kitchen, air conditioning and the added bonus of a washer and dryer. The grounds are beautiful and it is a short walk to the beach. It is located in the middle of Muri with the night market, a great bakery and resorts... More

Great place to stay. Close to beach and in the heart of muri. Had everything we needed and was very clean, had all amenities (cooking, washing) and staff were very friendly and helpful. Private outdoor areas were fantastic and just a minute stroll down to the beach. It far exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend it to people... More

A cute, clean bungalow with two seating areas (front and back of the bungalow) and all of the amenities that you need. Although Dorothy and Ivor weren't there, Raylene and Wiremu welcomed us with a wealth of information and insider knowledge. They were the perfect hosts with delicious tropical smoothies to boot. A quick walk down the path to Muri... More

It was our fourth time that we had spent a wonderful holiday at Dorothy's Bungalows. We like those Bungalows for a number of reasons: first, they are very nice, fairly new, very quiet, and peaceful. They are less than a stone throw away from one of Rarotonga’s most beautiful beaches and yet nicely protected from the winds that sometimes occur... More

We recently stayed at Muri Beach for a few nights. Dorothy's bungalows is perfectly situated within walking distance to town and the beach. If you want to snorkel, going further south is better, but the lagoon just outside is great for swimming and not bad for snorkeling. The bungalow was clean and very comfortable to stay in. Would definitely recommend... More

We enjoyed an 8 night stay back at Dorothys. As mentioned in previous review it met all our needs although we did spend more time on other parts of the Island for swimming and snorkelling where the water was clearer. Its a great property and close to Muri night markets, restaurants and cafes. Was lovely to catch up with Maureen... More

“Coco tots .com for children hire gear from bedding cots to ride on bikes great service. All the bungalows at Dorothys are great we stayed in unit 3 great shower pressure thogh did take a while for water to drain after a shower but no biggy. Family members stayed in all the other units and were all extremely pleased all are connected in pairs but gardens have privacy from each front patio area. Go to Muri Beach Club for a massage 5 mins up road /or along the beach fantastic. Pasific Resort next door. TE VARA NUI dinner and show a must 7mins slow walking away. Treasure Chest across road great and local dairy shop 2 mins same prices as supermarket. If you want meat go to prime foods behind foodlands in town best place and really nice choices.”
