Just got back from an unforgettable honeymoon week at the amazing Magic Reef Bungalows. We stayed in bungalow #1 and it was literally magic. It was private, closest to the beach and the best for whale watching. We saw whales a few times whilst just sitting there having our afternoon beers. Other perks to Magic Reef: - Lovely, down to...

This was our second stay at Magic Reef and it confirmed the wonderful impression we had on our first stay. The resort is small, but the bungalows are big and you can easily spend a day inside (yes it does rain in paradise) without getting cabin fever. The garden is pristine, they even have a small swimming pool, which comes...

Now that I'm home I'm still so lazy. Magic Reef was so relaxing. Our bungalow #1 was right on the beach , 28 paces form the water. The view was amazing , nothing but coral and blue ocean as far as the eye could see. Everything we needed was nearby, good food , scooter rental ,places to snorkel and kayak...

Rarotonga is the most beautiful and most relaxing place I've ever been. The Magic Reef bungalows were absolutely perfect. The attention to detail is apparent from the beachy bungalow décor, to the impeccable landscaping. We traveled around the whole island a few times, but always wanted to spend the most time sitting in the lounge chairs or beach bean bags...

We loved Magic Reef - lovely bungalows with room and comfort, without being over the top. Great people - Nancy at reception went out of her way to help and had great ideas for places to eat etc. We came here on recommendation of a friend who is a travel agent and was living on the island - she rated...

We were so happy to have stayed at Magic Reef! We couldn't have asked for anything more - from airport transfers to everything in between. We loved the room and watched the sunset from the hammock or the deckchairs every night. The fruit breakfast we had was some of the best fruit we've had. The host and staff made us...
