“Our wedding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2012

We arranged to have our wedding on the beach outside the Muri Beach Club Hotel in October 2012, Liana the Manager of the Muri Beach Club Hotel helped us arrange this. She went out of her way to help us with all aspects of our big day, and given that we did not have an official wedding planner she sort of stepped into the role to make sure our day would be perfect - which it was. Liana arranged the Photographer, the arch on the beach, some seating, horderves and drinks at the restaurant, and our wedding cake.

We had arranged drinks and horderves made by the Hotel for our guests while we had our photo's taken, we had a small platter of the horderves brought to us and they were delicious!!

We did have a few issues with our celebrant (that we arranged) not showing up, and when he did he had the incorrect paperwork (wrong name on it!) Liana went out of her way to ensure he corrected this while we were away on our honeymoon, she did not have to do this, but she took it on her own to arrange for the celebrant to come back with the correct paperwork when we came back from our honeymoon in Aitutaki, in short we 'officially' signed our marriage papers in the Hotel reception with Liana as our witness. We really owe a lot of thanks to her.

Our wedding cake was made by the hotel restaurant also - it was the most amazing tasting chocolate cake!!

When we came back from our honeymoon we stayed at the hotel in a beach front room, I must say the rooms are awesome, very quiet, and the staff were amazing and very friendly - Freddy is awesome!!

We really loved our stay at the Muri Beach Club Hotel and our wedding was the most amazing day!! We totally reccommend this Hotel for both weddings and to stay at!! it is awesome and the staff amazing!

Thanks heaps!!

Nicole and Pete

Room Tip: Beachfront is amazing - the views of the lagoon are to die for!

Rooms were great, clean, tidy , with a great view. staff were fantastic and didn't seem like anything was a problem. Food was good, service was good. 8 of us in total went on a friends 40 th birthday, would love to go back. Restaurants around it close by we're fantastic as well as. Couldn't really say a bad thing about the place other than it needs a little pool refurb but was more than useable.

We stayed here for the first time in 2011 and loved everything about our visit. The staff were outstanding, very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. We returned in 2012 and are planning a third visit in a couple of years. The main reason we initially chose Muri Beach Club Hotel was the fact that it catered for 18 years and over only. This really made the stay a fabulous one and was one of the reasons we chose to return to the MBCH on our second visit to Rarotonga. We would certainly recommend a sojourn at Muri Beach Club Hotel.

Room Tip: 1st floor rooms away from the beach and pool are more private.

Despite the fact that our printer did not want to print our vouchers, Carmaggon 2 would be in effect and 103 degree weather would wilt/kill many plants while we were gone, somehow we managed to complete this trip with a smile on our faces. The only issue was a loud A/C unit the first night, but Avi, the maintenance man took care of that with a smile on his face. Actually, every employee at the Muri Beach Club Hotel was friendly. I had read about dengue fever in May and overbought mosquito repellant..... hope the kids like mosquito repellant for Christmas! Mosquitoes were mainly an issue when we went to the big dance show next door. Scooter rentals from Darnell right out front of the hotel made touring fun and easy. Shelly at Fruits of Rarotonga pointed out the best snorkeling spot and made a great burger, assisted by Ava, her young niece/helper. My wife climbed with Pa, and said it was the highlight of the trip for her. I loved the fishing dogs right out front of our beachfront room. We took a couple complimentary kayaks out in the morning and followed two dogs swimmin towards the motu. One went to see what the humans had left behind on the motu, while the other stayed in the shallow water and ran after fish. It was sheer joy, being a dog lover. I understand youtube has videos of "rarotonga fishing dogs". Check them out. Overall, a wonderful trip. Muri Beach Club has a great rib night. The Flame Tree restaurant next door has a great seafood platter. We met a kiwil resident, Susie, who suggested the Moana Sands as her favorite on the island. We went there and the steak was terrible. One last note; Leigh is a singer at the Muri Beach Club. She is an islander. We are music nuts, and we both thought there was a CD of Nora Jones playing when we first entered. Leigh plays keyboard and sings magnifcently. Check her out.

Room Tip: beach front was our selection and we would recommend it.

We have recently returned from our Wedding at the Muri Beach Club. The Wedding itself was everything I wanted and more, the ceremony was beautiful, as where the people involved..such as the Photographer and the celebrant. We are very laid back and this suited us perfectly, you basically pay your package and everything was arranged for us. The room was decorated and matched exactly to the color scheme, and the evening meal went down a treat with our 40 guest's. This was our second visit to Muri Beach club, and will defiantly not be the last. Thank you Liana for organizing our perfect day. Vicky & christo Kovachev (300612)

Stayed a week for some R and R after a hard year. Recommend a beach front room. Staff were great. Beach was great. Pool was good but could so with a bit of maintenance for the missing tiles, starting to become a bit obvious. Polynesian Night is definitely worth going to, although food at the hotel was a little disappointing. Menu never changed and limited options. Recommend a walk up and down the beach for other places to eat of a night. Overall definite recommend this hotel, beach front room, weeks scooter / car hire and other hotels and restaurants for dinner. Thumbs up.

We stayed 8 nights here in August 2012.

Our first impressions were bright, clean, friendly and these never changed. The hotel its self has far bigger guest areas than you would expect for a place with just 30 rooms so you could always find a sun lounger by the pool or on the beach. Our upstairs room was light, spotlessly clean and airy. Aircon was available and very quiet, TV was there for wet days and the only thing better would have been a beach front unit (They look perfect!)

The location is just perfect, the beach in front is large because of the shape, it looks directly across the lagoon towards on of the small islands in the lagoon area. There are small restaurants everywhere, lots of beach and places to walk and of course the local bus service is just out on the street every 1/2 hour or so. An amazing setting, just like a postcard!

The staff were lovely, helpfull and fun. The food was excellent and breakfast was huge. Try the cocktails by the pool, they will knock your socks off.

Whilst we were there there was a wedding in the upstairs function room that doubles as a guest lounge at other times. Lucky couple is all I could say!

Try the Health Spa, the massages were fantastic and my lovely lady loved the facial too.

I only gave it 4 out of 5 because of the slack stuff that seems to happen in all hotels in the pacific islands (well, others I know corroborate this). The polynesian "we will get round to it" attitude means that stuff never gets done or done on time. just niggly stuff.

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs room unless you have a beachfront unit. The downstairs rooms open out onto littl...
