We had our wedding beside the pool at the Little Poly in November. I just want to thank Heiarii for organising the perfect day for myself and my husband. Everything was absolutely amazing!

We were after a peaceful and relaxing break from city life and certainly found it.

The staff are all great, attentive & happy to bring you a cocktail on the beach! The food was good (you don't go to the Cook Islands for the food!). The location & beach, the best we could see on the island. A lot of the other beaches had seaweed, foam, or a rocky outlook/beach. We'll be back. Thanks again... More

As far as rarotonga is concerned this is the best service ive had on the island. I dined at the restaurant with my family and the waiter was so kind. He learnt 2 members of our groups name and kept refering to them by there name which was cool. The food here is average . For example we ordered brushetta... More

The location is one of the best on the island, the beach is so private and perfectly manicured (it was raked daily). Every staff member was so friendly and each request was always dealt with a smile.

We were booked into a garden room (number 14), in which you could hear a constant hum from some generator or something near the kitchen and the comings and goings and deliveries etc at reception which is right next door. Plus the ringing of the reception phone. We coped with all that until all hell broke loose at around 8pm... More
