    Fantastic beach side location. Really friendly and helpful owners. We loved our little bungalow on the beach.

    Unfortunately the weather wasn't all that good so we didn't get quite the holiday we expected. However it was a great place to read books and eat the beautiful fish we caught

    beachfront bungalow. I'm not sure I would have been as happy in the others. Staff/owners couldn't be better. The guy that picked us up from Airport at 1 am was the best introduction to the Cook Islands you could get. The Waterline/front just up the beach is outstanding. People ask if I would go there again, I say not as a tourist, but I could live there.

    Weather, managed 3 rain days out of six. Value questionable compared with some Asian destinations, but then again, I loved the Cook Islands.

    We loved everything about Magic Reef Bungalow's. They were the perfect location for our long awaited honeymoon. Very private and romantic yet you still felt like you were very well looked after at all times. The staff were amazing, including the owners Angela and Simon who you felt like you had known for years. The bungalow we stayed in was immaculate and very well equipped. It was so authentic and we absolutely loved the outdoor bath and shower - so cool to be able to sit in the bath with a glass of wine and stare up at the night sky. We also loved our little deck area and spent a lot of time sitting out there reading our books and soaking up the view of the waves crashing against the reef. This place definitely deserves it's name "Magic Reef" - we can't wait to return one day and we will be recommending it to everyone we know. Love Love Love this place!!!! :)

    Nothing at all, we only wished we could have stayed for longer!!!

    We stayed in a beachfront unit. Bathroom facilities were lovely. Used the pool when the tide was out. We had no noise disturbance which was wonderful (be aware at roosters crying at Aitutaki) Fresh fruit in the fridge on arrival was lovely.

    You can't really swim out from the beach, especially when the tide is out.

    Fruit platter for breakfast on arrival, plus other breakfast food. The owner greeted us, she was really nice and friendly. All the other staff was very friendly and helpful. Great to have a transfer to the airport included too.

    Having to leave!

    All the little details in the room to make you feel at home give Magic Reef Bungalows an extra special feeling. It's luxury with a laid back beach style. Gorgeous carved wooden furniture and huge outdoor bathrooms with sunken baths, kitchenettes fitted with all you'll ever need. Great location right on the beach and next to the Waterline restaurant and bar!

    That I only stayed one day!!

    Magic Reef provided comfort and privacy in a beautiful location. With only nine bungalows you almost feel you have the place to yourself, but Angela, Simon and Grace are still on-hand to provide advice or have a chat, if you want it. While the beach out the front isn't the best for swimming or snorkeling there is a lovely pool and it encourages you to see the rest of the island where there are better locations for these activities. The bungalow itself was very comfortable and I really liked the external shower and bath. I just wish we could have stayed longer.

    Under new management: very welcoming, very helpful couple. The villas are superb: airy, spacious, tastefully decorated and come with cooking-facilities and an luxurious outdoor-shower and bath. Very good value and extraordinarily nice hosts.

    A really relaxing stay. Great pool, beautiful bungalow with a very cool bathroom, the staff were excellent and so helpful after a mix-up on the booking.com price quoted. The resort was finished and maintained to a high standard and the room was well equipped. Very handy for access to the town & airport. Nearby grocery store.

    Aforementioned price mix up ! Not sure if that happened at the booking.com end or the Bungalow end... but a mutually acceptable resolution was found ! :) The beach is not great for swimming.

    We liked it all!! Grace and her staff are absolutely amazing! They were super quick to take care of all of our needs, sometimes before we knew what was needed!! The staff was very friendly & most polite! The bungalows are nicely furnished & supplied. The location is great! This is our third trip to this island and we definitely will come back! Definately stay at the same place!!!

    There is absolutely NOTHING not to like!!

    What a relaxing, romantic and breathtaking place to stay. I could not have asked for anything more, it went beyond my expectations and met all our needs. The other guests were spectacular-I feel we've made friends for life. This is a well run facility-from the cleaning & office staff to the owners which genuinely care about everyone! Thank you for an amazing time.

    The fact I had to leave:-(

    Great staff. Very helpful. Beautiful setting.

    Very nice bungalows but a little rundown with some rusty fixtures. No dresser in otherwise large bungalow. Listing says direct access to beach but neglects to say it is unsuitable for swimming.

    I stayed only 1 night and the bungalow was superb! Very comfortable, very clean. Superfriendly staff.

    The beach here is rocky so not really nice area for swimming.

    Great location, excellent accommodation, with cooking facilities.Everything was clean staff and new owners were excellent.This place was pretty much perfect.

    Only a couple of small gripes.wasn't a swimming beach but didn't have to go to far for a swim. I used the pool. Step down to outdoor shower was too large. Owner is addressing this problem.One suggestion take your own food to Rarotonga as it is very expensive as most kiwis do.

    Everything! The bungalows are gorgeous, loved the outdoor bathroom. The sunsets are magic and Grace the Manager is super helpful.

    Not a swimming beach but you don't have to walk far to find a nice deep spot :-)

    We were both very impressed with the facilities and layout of the bungalows. The bungalows were serviced every two days and the staff were extremely helpful. We could not have asked for anything more. Much better then a resort.

    There was nothing we didn't like.

    Fabulous place to stay. Very clean, ocean view from every bungalow. Lovely breakfast delivered, or make your own in the kitchenette . Waterline restaurant is just a 2 minute walk along the beach, or small shop to get supplies down the road. No children under 12, so really quiet and relaxing..except the roosters , but they are part of the Island adventure and are all over the Island. Bus stop outside bungalows or car , scooter rentals up the road.

    Nothing really, would like more information available on whats happening around the Island each night, would be helpful.
