This is a MUST. Nothing else compares!!
I had a magical time at this accommodation and having the pool almost to myself was awesome!!! Everything was perfect ❤
True paradise and will DEFINITELY return when we come back to Rarotonga!!!
The Crystal Blue Lagoon Villas are new, clean and in a perfect location at Muri beach. Each villa has 2 bedrooms with ensuites and air conditioning, a two piece bath with laundry on the main level, high end appliances and a beautiful balcony view of the lagoon and pool. The manager Robyn is very friendly, so accommodating and a good source of information. Robyn provides you with a breakfast hamper and fruit on the first day that is so welcoming. Thank you Robyn and staff. Her staff is friendly and helpful. The villas were so clean, the grounds were well groomed and the pool was well looked after. Restaurants are all within walking distance. The island bus goes past the villa. There are glass bottom boat adventures near by that takes you to snorkel and return to an island for a bbq lunch and entertainment. There is a night food market close by with many ethnic vendors to choose from. What a beautiful South Pacific dream vacation that the four of us enjoyed.
We stayed here for 14 nights in Jan. The villa's do not disappoint. They are very clean and have everything you need. Robyn and her team do a fantastic job. When we arrived the ceiling fan downstairs had broken but Robyn had a freestanding one ready for us. The bedrooms have, and need, air conditioning so that you get a good nights sleep on those very humid nights. The pool area was never busy, in fact most of the time we had it to ourselves. Nothing was too much trouble for Robyn and her team. We had a couple of issues but these were sorted out promptly with no fuss. We ate quite regularly at the Muri food market as we found the food there was of a very good quality. We also had a take away from Vili's burgers which I would also recommend. For some fine dining I would recommend the Tamarind House or you can walk along the beach to find somewhere to eat or just stay at the villa and BBQ. The Raro Buggy tours which operate out of the Muri Beach Hotel were really good fun too. My husband and teenage son also enjoyed going out on sea scooters. As well as snorkeling there is also kayaking, paddle boarding and kite surfing in the lagoon too. There are a couple of places that offer night paddle boarding which looked great. You can do as much or as little as you like. We wanted a nice relaxing holiday and that is what we had. Fabulous.
We stayed here recently with our two teenager daughters and loved our villa. We were greeted with a beautiful food hamper and found the premises to be immaculately clean with state of the art appliances. The air conditioning in the upstairs bedrooms made all the difference.The beach front pool and views are magnificent. Nothing was too much trouble for Robyn who was our host and made us feel welcome. We would highly recommend the villas.
Stunning location right on the beach. Beautifully appointed spacious villas - everything you could need and kept wonderfully clean by the friendly and discrete cleaning staff. Lovely hospitality from Robyn, the property manager, who left hampers and treats and popped by to chat and share her knowledge of the island.
Truely one of the best places I have ever stayed, almost don't want to share as afraid it will be fully booked next time I want to go :)
The villas are in a great location, close to a few cafes, restaurants and the night market. Another highlight is the daily singing and laughing as the next door lagoon cruise trip sets of and returns.
Can't wait to go back.
This is an amazing place. The pool is the place to spend all day, although the deck on the waterfront was a close second.
We were a group of 8 adults and took two units (one at the front, and one at back) for a week over New Year.
Units are very modern, clean, well appointed and comfortable. Superbly equipped kitchen. Close to everything else along Muri beach.
Robyn and her team will make you feel welcome, and were helpful dealing with any queries, without being obtrusive.
You won't want to leave. Highly recommended.
We stayed here for 4 nights as our first leg of the honeymoon, and the experience at these villas was probably the highlight of our vacation. We opted for the early and late check-ins because we flew in so early on a Sunday, and it was well worth the extra costs. The villas themselves are wonderfully adorned, really really modern and clean with beautiful views of the Muri Lagoon (we had the beachfront villa). Robyn was super helpful and nice, great resource for us first timers. I would highly highly recommend a place like this if you're not into the resort experience. This felt much more private and like a home away from home!
