Awesome time, beautiful rooms. All the staff were friendly and always willing to help. Hayley, Wedding Co-Ordinator, made our Eloping, stress-free and perfect. Prices were very reasonable. We will be back.

We enjoyed our second visit to Rarotonga and chose this hotel after spending most of our time at Muri Beach during our first stay. Muri Beach outside the hotel is spectacular with gorgeous swimming but the hotel does not just rest on that laurel.

With only thirty rooms the hotel is boutique and one of the most luxurious in Rarotonga. Every member of staff was knowledgeable, friendly and went above their duty.

Below is a list of stand out points which will see us return:

1. Small, boutique and luxurious
It was a pleasure walking around the hotel without tourist masses or children. We loved the easy access to snorkelling equipment, boards and kayaks (no signing in for equipment - you can just use it and return it). We noticed and appreciated the boutique luxury compared to the busy and much larger Pacific Resort next door.

2. The best happy hour on Muri
We tried every happy hour on Muri and this hotel was the best. One of our favourite holiday memories was enjoying Jonie's Snickers cocktails on the beach. No other hotel came close. Cocktails are $12NZD during happy hour.

3. Fabulous location for snorkelling and swimming and a good variety of dining options close by. Many other hotels on Rarotonga, whilst beautiful, are isolated in terms of dining options outside the hotel. Muri Beach Club hotel is within a great eating precinct - Mexican, Asian, Sailing Club, bakeries and delicatessens are all close by.

4. The extras we did not expect but enjoyed:
-Free computer with Internet to check emails at reception.
-A super helpful receptionist who booked all our tours and transfers easily.
-Three choices of hot breakfast options which changed daily as well as cold options. The liver was a surprise but quite delicious one morning!
-The manager's cocktail party on Tuesday night which was a great way to meet fellow guests and the management team.
-A special snorkelling excursion to the best snorkelling spot we saw on the island ( west of the Fruits of Rarotonga). This was a definite highlight of our trip.

Thank you Muri Beach Club Hotel. You are worth every dollar and we will be back.

Although we didn't actually stay at this hotel we really wished we had. We have just recently spent 5 days in Rarotonga for our 20th wedding anniversary and we got a cheap deal at Club Raro. After visiting Muri beach hotel we ended up spending nearly all of our time there instead. The beach is amazing and we loved lounging on the loungers on the beach of this adult only hotel. The staff were very friendly, the pool amazing, spotlessly clean and the food was great. We also went to the polynesian buffet night which was great fun!! If we go to Rarotonga again we will save up the extra money and stay here instead.

We would definitely stay here again, anyone staying here must try the snickers cocktail made by Jone in the bar. Our room was beach front with an awesome view of the lagoon, comfortable bed, great shower and loved that our room was serviced daily with clean towels etc.

As a guest at Muri Beach Club Resort for a friends wedding, I really enjoyed my stay for the 6 nights we were there! Staff were very friendly and welcoming. And Joni's cocktails were AMAZING along with his smile! With the short walk from beach to pool was great! I will be back sometime soon.

We had a wonderful stay at Muri Beach Club Hotel! We stayed for six nights and did not want to leave at the end! Great location at Muri Beach - we're so glad we decided to stay at Muri, as it's a really nice location and lots of restaurants etc nearby. The staff at MBCH were very friendly, and we especially loved Joni! Great happy hour cocktails - we enjoyed trying the cocktails of the day.

The breakfast buffet was good - plenty of fresh fruit and loved the lemon bread. We ate at the restaurant a few times, including the Valentine's Day special dinner menu, which was lovely.

Our room was a standard room and was very spacious with two big beds. The air con was good, and it was nice to return to our room to cool off during the hot part of the day.

Kayaks, snorkels, flippers and paddle boards are all available for free at the resort, and all were in good condition. We even took the resort dog for a paddle!

Excellent resort right on Muri lagoon. We were a honeymooning couple and were treated with with the wonderful hospitality of staff all the way through - our room was upgraded to beach view, received complimentary champagne on arrival, received a 60 mins complimentary couples massage and complimentary picnic on the beach. The rooms are clean and the facilities (pool, restaurant, bar etc) are great. Most of all, the staff were very pleasant and accommodating which made our stay one to remember. Highly recommended.
