Slice of paradise

Posted 30-Nov-2016
Pros: Very good location
Cons: The couches in living area not that comfortable if you wanted to lounge around under the fan. Upgrade the cooking utensils, the plastic melts.
Location: Very good location and ticked all boxes for nearby activities and places to eat
Very good location right in Muri beach with good places to eat, entertain and shop at within walking distance. The kayaks and snorkels are heaps of fun with the lagoon right at your door step. The lagoon villa had everything you need. Make sure you go to the Muri night market for some kai while your there. Totally recommend Manea Beach Villas for price, comfort, and a relaxing stay and would book there again.

Great service!

Posted 09-Nov-2016
Pros: Great location and set up allows you to be independent and relax and enjoy your stay
Location: Manea has its own pool, kayaks, snorkelling gear and is right on the lagoon. It is also 5 minutes walk from Muri town and all the activities there.
The staff at Manea made us feel very welcome throughout our stay. Simple things like bringing us freshly cut bananas to going out of their way and waking up at 3.30am and driving us to the airport when our shuttle didn't show up and driving us back again when our flight was cancelled. I couldn't recommend them more!

It was a pleasure to host you, and I'm so pleased you enjoyed yourselves despite the hair-raising flight cancellation. The up side was another beautiful day in Paradise!. Hope to see you again. Kia manuia, Fern-manger

Beautiful lagoon views!

Just like the photos. Beautiful lagoon views. Great pool area. The staff are friendly and the villas are equipped with all you need. Access to kayaks and snorkelling gear there's always something to do.

Well equipped kitchen. Great location.

Posted 09-Oct-2016
Location: All you need couple of minutes walk away. Rental cars etc. Groceries, restaurants, snorkelling. Bach style living.
Decor bit tired. Aircon stuck on 18 and only in one room. Couches sagging and dirty. Reception only manned for couple hours from 2pm when usually out. Basic cleaning done but needs several days cleaning. Cleaner and lawn guy friendly and helpful. BBQ but filthy. Good size for families. Nice pool by lovely lagoon.

Kia orana. Thanks for your feedback. You stayed during a change of management at Manea Beach Villas, so we weren't fully on our game.I'm sorry about that.The office is now manned regularly every weekday morning. We are also available even when it's closed. We're just a phone call, and 5 minutes drive away. The staff are working hard to spruce the property up and I'm sure if you visit again one day you'll see the changes. Thanks for staying at Manea. Kia manuia, Fern

Comfy uncrowded resort

Posted 14-Sep-2016
Pros: See above.
Cons: Can't think of anything. The lovely memories of a slice of loveliness persist.
Location: Canoeing, snorkelling, diving, glass bottom boat, bike riding.
Nothing equals a quiet relaxing resort that encompasses the flavour of the local people and their environment. This villa has all that. The staff are very pleasant and always willing to help out without being in your face. This is the sort of resort that I happily recommend to others.

Thanks so much for the lovely review. We are proud of Manea. We also think it's a "little gem" in the beautiful Cook Islands. I hope we see you again one day. Kia manuia

Lots of utensils in cupboards but truly a waste.. Two containers spray for insects but unable to use.. Same with toilet spray full but not able to use..Put those in rubbish as seemed they were just there for show???,,, Clean...and tidy rooms...

Excellent accomodation in the heart of muri beach

Posted 06-Jul-2016
Stayed July 2016 in a garden view room. Room was 10/10 nice and clean and a great space for the price. Handy location central to everything but still allowed for some privacy and quiet time. Great pool and access to the beach. Lovely helpful staff. Highly recommended.
