Muri Beach Club Hotel
Ranked #4 of 5 Hotels in Muri
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 July 2011

We found the Muri Beach Club Hotel excellent. We stayed for a week in a Beachfront Room and thoroughly enjoyed it.
The room was spacious and comfortable; the housekeepers did a great job each day. The bathroom was big too, and there was a space for wet togs which was great.
The service was outstanding; every single member of staff was unfailingly polite and helpful. They seemed genuinely interested in how our day had been and were always cheerful.
Probably the best asset for the place is it's location. We woke up to a stunning view of the lagoon each day. We used the hotel's kayaks often; we thought they looked like the best on the beach because they were the only ones with proper back support.
As a couple, we found the hotel's adults-only policy wonderful. The hotel was very peaceful and children are even not allowed in the restaurant, so the quiet remains unbroken. We really appreciated this; it made a big difference to our enjoyment of the place.

We chose the Muri Beach Club Hotel partly because of its adults only policy, and also because we were told it was on the best beach on the island. We were certainly not disappointed – in fact, I would have to say you would be hard pressed to find a more perfect location on Rarotonga. The hotel is situated right on the shores of beautiful Muri Beach, directly opposite one of the tiny uninhabited motus which dot the lagoon, making for stunning views.
We received a warm welcome when we arrived, with the receptionist taking the time to show us around our room and explaining the facilities on offer. Throughout our whole stay we found all staff to be friendly and helpful and never had any issues. There are times when service may not be as prompt as you might expect at home, but you just accept that is island time, and just relax and enjoy the laid back atmosphere.
The restaurant was fresh and modern, but a little pricey and the food was fairly average for what you pay. In general we discovered the best restaurants on the island tended to be those not attached to resorts or hotels. Sails restaurant just a bit further down on Muri Beach is fantastic, and well worth spending a little extra. Miro’s Diner by the entrance to the driveway to the Muri Beach Club Hotel is a small, rather unassuming local café, but produced some of the nicest and most reasonably priced food we had during our stay – a great option for lunch.
The complimentary tropical breakfast each morning was great though, with a selection of tropical fruits, toast and spreads, cereals, and juice, tea and filtered coffee. The cocktails were also excellent – just $10 over happy hour (4-6pm).
The free use of kayaks and snorkel gear was fantastic, as it made it so easy to explore the lagoon and motus. It is true that there are better places to snorkel around the island, but we still saw heaps of different brightly-coloured fish in this part of the lagoon, as well as puffer fish and cornet fish. The lagoon is also shallower and sandier here than in other parts, making it excellent for swimming.
It was handy being able to hire scooters directly from the hotel, without having to go into town to queue to get a license from the Police Station. This is definitely the easiest and cheapest way to get around the island.
The pool looked lovely although we didn’t actually use it, preferring to swim in the lagoon. The rooms are also very modern and clean, but we would definitely recommend staying in a beachfront room if you can, as the views are beautiful, and you also get a nice sea breeze through your room, which helps keep the mossies at bay.
Loved every minute of our stay here – would definitely return.

A brilliant beachfront location to stay in. This part of Raratonga seems to get alot more sun than otherparts ( for more of the day). Also seems to get less rain than the more northerly parts. The lagoon is fantastic and includes a number of small islands that you can wade to during the slack tide. The snorkling is good with lots of small fish to see and you can use kyacks and paddle boats. There are plenty of loungers to relax on right on the beach and also around the pool area. The resort provides an excellent standard of accomodation (we had a garden room). The barman "Bina" makes the most delicious cocktails and there is a happy "hour" from 4pm to 6pm.(Island time). They also provide complimentary roasted coconut to nibble on. Mmmmhhh! The hotel facilities include a large swiming pool, restaurant, outdoor chess (didn't use) and shop. All staff were very friendly and professional. Great to have the scooters available for use during our stay.
Some areas they could improve on are:
1. Greater variety in the alla carte menu.
2. Better quality and selection of snorkling gear and better hygiene of this.
3. They should install extractor fans in the bathrooms (which include the toilet).
4. They need softer pillows for the beds.
5. Better musicians with music that you can dance to.
Overall we enjoyed ourselves immensely and would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

My sister and I went over there with nothing but relaxation in mind. Hence we decided the over 18 resort would suit us. We had been told by others to keep expectations of accomodation in Raro low, so we were so pleasantly suprised on arrival. The grounds are spacious, well kept and beautiful. We only had a garden room, but even that was luxurious. The pool was huge and clean, and the range of facilities were excellent. The location is right on Muri beach and the restaurant was decent enough so you wouldn't even have to leave if you couldn't be bothered! Staff were also friendly, prompt and polite. Without hesitation, I would recommend to all!!

Room Tip: All rooms are great

This hotel is simply great. A beautiful, well-located venue open to over 18 year olds. Fantastic views, friendly, efficient staff. A wonderful location for our honeymoon. Great beachfront views , romantic yet within walking distance to other hotels and restaurants:).We enjoyed a bottle of bubbly, gift basket and a room upgrade with letting the hotel know that this was our honeymoon trip.

Room Tip: Bring marriage certificate to qualify for perks.
