However simple an event you are planning on an island you've never visited before, relying on internet reviews to make your choice of wedding package and honeymoon location has got to be something of a risk; how relieved we were to find those reviews weren't exaggerating. From the moment we were met at the airport by owner, Simon placing leis...

We spent 12 days at Magic Reef for a time of rest and relaxation. We are an elderly couple and I needed some time out after a busy period at home. It was perfect.

The most beautifully set thatched roofed bungalows you'll find in Rarotonga - the gardens are luscious with an exquisite view of the ocean and reef. Relax in bean bags and loungers beside the pool or sea. Stroll along the beach to a couple of excellent restaurants and bars, hire a car locally or use the Magic Reef scooters and bikes...

We stayed for 8 nights in May 2015 as a couple – on a relaxing holiday. We have been to Raro a few times now so this was just about having some relaxation in the sun rather than site seeing. We thought this place was fabulous (and when we return to Raro again this is the only place we will...

This was our second trip to Rarotonga and we have stayed in lots of rental homes and Resorts. Magic Reef has raised the bar and is the best place we have experienced so far.
