Angela met us when we arrived and showed us the bungalow, there was a beautiful platter of tropical fruit waiting for us, plus teas/coffee and even breakfast for the next morning. The bungalows were very clean, with a...

We had a fantastic stay at the Magic Reef bungalows and just can’t say enough about the customer service provided by owners Angela and Simon and their staff. They went above and beyond every day to make sure we were happy and comfortable. The bungalows are spacious and nicely decorated each with a private deck. We loved their beach; very...

This is our third stay at Magic Reef, so that fact alone speaks for itself. When you arrive at Rarotonga airport the owners, Simon and Angela will personally meet you and transfer you to Magic Reef in an air-conditioned van. And take you back to meet your plane at the end of your stay. A fantastic fruit platter of mango,...

Just had the most amazing 2 weeks staying at Magic Reef Bungalows. Spotlessly clean, beautiful gardens and unique pool.

This is the place to go if you are looking...

we honeymooned there and this was the perfect place to do it. Staff were great and so helpful. The small touches made the difference from the hibiscus flowers placed around the bungalow to the personalised welcome and info sheet. It was so much fun exploring the different elements in the room from the carvings on the bed posts, the furniture,...

We had a fantastic few days at Magic Reef. It is in a great location with direct access to the beach to view the stunning sunsets. There are only 9 Bungalows so it is really quiet and peaceful.
