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...

This being my 10th visit to Rarotonga I think its fair to say I have experienced a good representation of what is available on the island , from large high profile resorts ( The Rarotongan) through...

Just returned from our 3rd visit to Magic Reef, and again we were not disappointed. As always the staff were amazing, rooms cleaned on a regular basis. Nancy the receptionist always smiling and friendly. And as usual Simon and Angela were more than willing to do what they can to make the holiday live up to all your expectations. If...

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...

We stayed at Magic Reef last year and enjoyed it so much that we just had to return! We only stayed for three nights this time as we spent the majority of our time on Aitutaki but there is just something about this wonderful place. The bungalows are well spaced and very private and all have a sea view. The...

We love this place. Only 9 bungalows, all with a view of the sea and the waves crashing on the reef. It's a quiet retreat. No kids so the pool is quiet and inviting.

We stayed at Magic Reef for 9 nights and loved it. Nothing was too much trouble for Nancy, Angela, and Simon. We highly recommend ordering one of the platters....delicious! The location is on the "warmer" & calmer side of the island, so we thought anyway. The bungalows are very comfortable and well equipped. The outdoor shower was lovely. The welcome...
