The rooms are a little tired, however it is in a great location and the staff were extremely friendly. Food from the restaurant was only average, however next door at the sister resort the food was outstanding. Bed was way to soft!

Perhaps getting a little tired but still very comfortable and very reasonably priced by comparison with its immediate neighbours, Meridian & Pacific resorts.Strangely,if you feel like a cold one with your lunch, the bar and restaurant don;t open until 3.00pm

Loved everything about our stay. Pool is sheltered from on shore breezes. All the staff friendly and very helpful. Margaret, the shuttle driver makes you feel welcome from the moment you arrive at the airport. The cocktails are tops and became a daily occurrence for all of us.

Having visited the island several times, I believe Muri is the place to stay and MBR represents great value in the heart of the area. Less than 2 minutes walk from activities and a shop at the end of the driveway, it is a perfect place to escape. Friendly staff and clean, spacious villas make it an easy holiday. November...

We stayed at Muri Beach Resort following 5 days on Aitutaki. The location is fantastic being in walking distance of a number of other resorts, restaurants, the fantastic LBV Bakery and the night markets. The resort was very quiet and the room was very nice with a view directly on to the lagoon. We only ate at the restaurant once...

This resort unit cost us $400 a night. Was not good value for the money. Two single ladies, one bedroom, other single bed put in the small lounge.

Just came home yesterday from Muri Beach Resort. Travelled with a group of 17, using 8 different villas and we were impressed! Such a great location and the service was fantastic.

Beautiful sea view room with about 5 steps to the sea, and a couple of close islands to swim or kayak to. The food could do with quite some improvement and the wine list is average. The staff are fabulous!
