The Magic reef bungalows were absolutely amazing. The staff were awesome and ever so helpful, the facilities were efficient and very clean. We especially loved the outdoor feel of the bath and shower. The location was ideal, close to the airport and yummy restaurants. Bonus that we were able to swim/snorkel just off the beach. The weather was always so beautiful on this side of the island as well. This made our trip that much more enjoyable. I highly recommend this place and look forward to staying again in the future!

Beautiful peaceful setting

Posted 27-Jun-2017 on Wotif
Pros: All as above.
Cons: I needed to use an eye cover to sleep because of the light coming in through the curtains - from overnight outside lighting. Block out curtains would
Location: Fantastic location - right on the beach, restraurants within walking distance, lots of snorkelling opportunities fairly close by.
This is a lovely resort with only 9 bungalows, all with a view of the sea. It was peaceful, private and quiet, just what we needed! is close to many other amenities. Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. The bungalow was very comfortable, large king size bed with beautiful carvings and private outdoor shower and bath, which we really enjoyed. The gardens are beautifully laid out and maintained.

Bungalows by the Beach

Posted 07-Jun-2017
Pros: The adults only rule ensures a quiet atmosphere whether on the beach, in the pool or just relaxing on your verandah
Location: Close to several good quality restaurants. Bus stops at the front making transport convenient. Within walking distance to marine park for snorkelling,
Great accommodation so close to the ocean. No effort is required to relax, just stroll down the garden path to the beach - pristine sand, comfortable chairs of various styles to relax in and enjoy the scenery, read a book or take a nap. Great swimming pool, short stroll to many great restaurants. The bungalows are comfortable and spacious and the outside shower and bath were a wonderful indulgence. Great staff who are happy to assist in any way possible. Excellent complimentary first day breakfast in accordance with local culture. The perfect place to relax.

Wonderful

Posted 16-May-2017
Pros: Nice Location, clean rooms, competent staff and wonderful beach
Cons: Its tough to get away from insects in the tropics, but the only issue I noticed were small ants, but if you kept clean and tidy they were no issues.
Location: Beach, snorkeling, restaurants and pubs, Kite Surfing, Hiking
We came to Magic Reef for our Honeymoon. Form the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, Angela and Simon, Amy all of the Magic Reef Crew made us feel welcome, comfortable and entertained. The bungalows were clean and modern, they have everything we needed for self-catering, the outdoor shower was great. The amenities were always working and in good order. We felt like we had the place to ourselves, even though it was completely sold out. Magic Reef is located in a great spot, perfect for sunsets. Close to so many restaurants and bars, you just need to explore a little. They have everything you need or want, and are available whenever you need them. Service was awesome and highly recommend it to anyone.

Wonderful place to stay

Posted 05-Apr-2017
Very nice bungalow with many amenities - the kitchenette had a coffee press, coffee, tea and kettle. There were full sized bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body wash in the outdoor shower, which I loved, so no need to bring your own. Snorkel gear and water shoes are available free for use, and bicycles and scooters can be rented on the premises. Beautiful sunsets on the west-facing beach and really cool tide pools at low tide. The owners are very nice and accommodating. We loved our stay in the beautiful Cook Islands!

Individual island themed bungalows

Posted 21-Mar-2017
Pros: Everything
Magic Reef bungalows was everything we hoped for during our stay in Rarotonga. Situated on the west side of the island, with pristine white sand , good swimming and beautiful sunsets. The in-ground pool is the perfect place to cool down and is well maintained and spotlessly clean. The individual bungalows allow privacy and quiet with an island flavour. The private out door shower was a nice surprise and the air conditioning made our stay comfortable. The staff at Magic Reef are extremely helpful and flexible. They also transported us to places on the island free of charge when required. We were also able to hire scooters and bicycles on-site for our own adventures! I will definitely be back to stay and highly recommend this accommodation to other travellers.

The Magic Reef was such a great find for us...we were ending a long trip in the Cook Islands for some R&R and the Magic Reef was The perfect spot. I can't say enough about the owners and their team- they are wonderful; so welcoming and accommodating, you feel well taken care of! We will definitely return and would highly recommend MR to couples looking for a South Pacific vacation.
