“Just wow, that is all.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014 via mobile

My wife and I stayed here for four nights on route back to New Zealand from Aitutaki, as part of our honeymoon. The club is beautifully maintained, the staff really make this place special and couldn't do enough for you. I'd highly recommend the spa which we indulged in for a couple of treatments all in all just perfect. Good food too, just make sure you have some powerful insect repellant as the restaurant is right on the beach. Thank you Muri Beach club for making our stay so special. Will be back for sure.

We stayed here for 7 nights in November for our first wedding anniversary.
Firstly I have to say we loved the place! The staff are what lift this place to a truly fantastic resort. They all go out of there way to make your stay enjoyable, especially Bina who is a absolute gem!! Reception was great with helping organise anything we wanted to do too. We thought the food at the restaurant was fantastic but there is other options down the road. We thought Sails Restaurant was awesome too.
Only a couple of negatives, sheets and towels are tired and need replacing. And standard of rental motorbikes is below par. Yes I understand that these are from another hire company but they are there for your guests to hire exclusively and this should be of a high standard like the rest of the hotel.
Anyway, we will be back again this year, look forward to seeing all the staff again.
Thanks again Muri BC,
Adam & Frea

This review is long overdue but we got married at Muri Beach Club Hotel in Oct 2013. We have stayed in Rarotonga before at other resorts but picked this hotel as our destination as they definitely have the best spot on the island! Perfect white sand and outlook over the lagoon.

The hotel is quite pricey but this is mainly due to location I would say. Very clean and tidy, nice restaurant and pool. Lots of loungers on the beach, free snorkel gear and snorkelling tours which I would highly recommend. Cheap/easy scooter and car hire as well.

The hotel has fantastic all inclusive wedding packages and they organise absolutely everything for you. I especially liked that the wedding package we chose included a buffet and drinks package which was charged by the hour per person ( all you can drink! ) instead of by the bottle so there are no surprises afterwards!

There are so many add-ons that you can chose from, they have every base covered for you! eg: flowers ( which were amazing! ) , make up, photographer, band, DJ just to name a few....

Liana the Manager/ Wedding Co-ordinator at the hotel goes above and beyond to make sure your day is perfect. She had every small detail worked out so all we had to do was relax and enjoy ourselves... absolutely no stress!

The rest of the staff are all so friendly and fun. All our wedding guests commented on how they really added to the atmosphere and overall experience.

Making a special mention to Daena and Jone who were the favourites!

Our friends and family really enjoyed their stay here as well we couldn't have asked for a better wedding and family holiday combined! The Cook Islands really turned on the charm with amazing weather so it was picture perfect.

Thanks Muri Beach Club Hotel!

My wife and I stayed here last July. We had a fine unit right on the beautiful lagoon - great view.
The staff at the hotel were very obliging and friendly. The room was clean and well equipped.
Just having one computer with slow internet was a bit painful.
The hotel had a terrific pool and easy access to kayaks, snorkeling gear etc. The food in the restaurant was a bit disappointing, except for the special islands menu night. We tended to eat at small restaurants along the road. Breakfast was quite forgettable.
Overall, not too shabby but not quite the level of the images in the glossy brochures. More expensive than it deserved.

Hotel was overall a little tired but it's location made up for it.

You won't find a nicer spot to stay on Rarotonga. Muri Lagoon and it's little islands are stunning. Great access to the other bars and restaurants along the beach. The Hotel is becoming a little dated but is very clean and tidy. Breakfasts were really nice. Better spots for cocktails and dinner down the beach. Loved it and would stay again.

Room Tip: Get an upstairs room with a balcony overlooking the lagoon.

This hotel has a great location and plenty of good points and a few areas to work on. We had a short stay but can give some review points.

Breakfast was included and had a good range of food for a tropical breakfast, and nice coffee.

The location on Muri beach is great! Lots of activities and other places to visit on the doorstep. No problem with dogs.

The pool area was quiet except for some noisy device in the corner (fan or pump or something next to the kitchen) and no kids was a bonus for a couples break.

The room was OK, good balcony, bathroom and excellent airconditioning however I did think the bedding and linen were past their best.

I would stay here again but it is quite expensive compared to other resorts in asia/pacific, but the Cook Islands are expensive for accommodation in general.

I hope this review is constructive and doesn't get an essay style reply from management like some other reviews. I would prefer they put their efforts into making improvements instead of explaining why things are the way they are.

Room Tip: beachfront would be good

My partner and I stayed at the muri beach club in late December 2013. First impressions of the resort was great! We walked into our room and were amazed at our beachfront view of the beautiful lagoon! We could sit on our balcony and watch the fish jumping around in the water!
The beachfront location on the lagoon is one of the best on the island as the lagoon is great to swim and explore on canoes or paddle boards! The resort also offers free canoes and snorkelling gear to use in the lagoon which is very convenient!
The complimentary breakfast was great! Good variety of choices and delicious fruit from the island! We also enjoyed the beach BBQ held at the hotel! Beautiful salads and the fish was amazing which was enjoyed on the beachfront!
The staff were lovely and always there to assist with what ever we needed!
The muri beach club is defiantly a relaxing getaway as you can spend your days relaxing by the beach or pool without being disturbed! We will defiantly choose the muri beach club to stay on our next trip to Rarotonga!! Loved it!!
