The Little Polynesian is a small hotel and restaurant on the south coast of Rarotonga. It had rained all morning so we walked from our hotel to the Little Polynesian for lunch. It was quiet,- we were the only people having lunch. We ordered a beef-burger with chips,- huge and delicious and bruschetta with tomato, cheese, garlic and pesto on sourdough bread,- tasty and just the right size. We liked it so much we booked for dinner that night. We were shown to a lovely table on it's own under a canopy of palm trees which felt special. We ordered a bottle of white wine, the roast chicken with spinach and rice and the lamb shank with potato rosti,- both were delicious and we really enjoyed our lunch and dinner at the Little Polynesian.

We can't wait to go back. We stayed in both Aitutaki and Rarotonga, and for the peaceful solitude we preferred Aitutaki. But on Rarotonga, there is no better place to stay. We saw all of the beaches on Raro and spoke to a lot of the locals and all agree that they have the best beach on the island. The food at the restaurant is really great, you can go there for lunch or dinner even if you don't stay there. Our last night they upgraded us to a beachfront bungalow which was amazing and would be so worth the money. Our only complaint was that the curtains/blinds in all of the properties don't block out the light very well and if you're a light sleeper this can cause an issue. But the staff is wonderful, and everything about this little intimate gem is just perfect. We'll definitely be back

Room Tip: Beachfront bungalows are well worth the money. The garden units are also great and you still get to stay in this stunning resort.

We enjoyed our Silver Wedding Anniversary at the little Poly this month very much. The small boutique nature of the hotel and the super friendly and efficient staff made this a cosy and excellent stop on our journey round some of the islands. We were treated like friends and felt very pampered every day. Every detail was thought of. The room we had was newly refurbished and beautifully laid out. We lived waking up to a view of the beach seemingly at our feet. The outside shower and spa bath an absolute treat. The restaurant menu was varied and thoughtful and the food was of a very high standard. The layout is superb, with a view across the lit up infinity pool towards the beach and coral lagoon. A big Thank You to all the staff for making our special holiday and anniversary dinner so special. All in all - aA little piece of paradise! :)

Room Tip: They are all on the beach, so not a problem.

We were in Rarotonga for 6 nights at the Little Polynesia, unfortunately the wind meant swimming and water-sports weren't much fun on this side of the island. It died down on our very last day. The beach was lovely and the facilities very nice. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful
