We spent an incredible week at the Magic Reef Bungalows. The bungalows are so beautiful and well equipped. The outdoor bathroom is really cool and the kitchen has a cooktop so we made our own breakfast each morning! The beach is lovely, you can swim in a little section that is free from the reef and there are a few...

We spent 1 magic week in an absolute beachfront bungalow. Extremely well appointed and fell on to the beach each day or 20m to the lovely pool. Service second to none and a real feature was the number of great restaurants within 15 min walk.

My wife and I stayed at Magic Reef in the Ocean front bungalow for 12 nights for our honeymoon. Our front porch was about 50 ft from the water. The customer service was 5 star from day 1. Angela and Simon the owners would go out of their way to make sure we were happy at all times. If you...

From the time we were greeted at the airport until we returned to the airport 2 days later (much too short of a stay), we felt very welcomed by Angie and Simon. As new owners, both have some great expectations regarding Magic Reef and I have no doubt that when we return, they will be well on their way to...

When you have thoroughly exhausted your search for the best accommodations in Rarotonga reach for the "top shelf" and the Magic Reef. The nine unique exquisitely built and furnished bungalows surrounded by meticulously cared for grounds offer quiet, private settings with a view of the reef, the ocean and the setting sun. The magic of that week spent at the...

The Magic Reef Bungalows are nothing short of excellent. They are impeccably maintained and beautifully presented. We have travelling to the Rarotonga yearly since 2006 and this the best accommodation we have stayed in. The owners Angela and Simon are above and beyond. Grace and the rest of the team are all extremely friendly and very helpful as well. Grace...

Under new management: very welcoming, very helpful couple. The villas are superb: airy, spacious, tastefully decorated and come with cooking-facilities and an luxurious outdoor-shower and bath. Very good value and extraordinarily nice hosts.

Somewhat recently returned from a fantastic three day stay at Magic Reef via the (one and only) Sunday night flight from LAX. This is an immaculately kept oceanfront property with nine separate spacious bungalows containing beautiful carved wood four poster beds, kitchenettes and outdoor showers (with both rainwater and pressurized heads) and sunken tubs. I was enjoying Unit No. 5...

We arrived in the middle of the night to be greeting with fresh flower lays and a smiling driver. When sun rose the next day we realised we were in a magic place. Our beachfront bungalow was spotless, private and surounded by beautiful palm trees. Angela is your host here, she just cannot do enough for you. There are two...
