Muri Beach Club Hotel is situated right on Muri lagoon. The location of this hotel is absolutely perfect. The hotel offers free use of kayaks, paddle boards & snorkel equipment (most others charge per hour).
The hotel itself was a little run down and the food at the restaurant was overpriced and disappointing. Overall we enjoyed our stay as we spent most of our time at the beach, however it would be nice to see this hotel lift it's game.
Almost every meal we had at the restaurant was bland and overcooked. Not to mention too expensive.
We also found some of the staff to be quite rude. I waited over 5 minutes at the bar with 4 staff members in view and not one of them came over to take my order. Sometimes it felt like we were being a nuisance. In saying that, there were some really helpful, friendly and accommodating staff members too.
At about 2am one morning, we heard our locked door handle to our room shaking. We both went back to sleep but about 10 minutes later we were awoken again to our door slamming. Very strange. At about 4am our airconditioner jammed up and started making an extremely loud noise. We turned it off and tried to go back to sleep. Needless to say we both had a very unsettled and restless night.
There were always ants running around on the bed, bathroom sink and benches in the room.
Scooter hire is more expensive from the hotel than Avis which is just up the road at the Pacific Resort. The scooters available from Avis are much newer too.
After paying a lot of money to say at a nice resort, you expect clean rooms, security & friendly staff. Unfortunately we were a little disappointed with Muri Beach Club, however we would return to the Cook Islands - it is a beautiful place.
