ROMANTIC RESTORATIVE HOLIDAY. Little Polynesian Resort went above & beyond to make our stay absolutely divine. The staff were so beautiful & friendly always smiling & making us feel so special. The food was amazing & so fresh. The Beach Bungalows wrapped us up in a cocoon of romantic days & nights right on the beach we could step straight into the crystal blue water to swim, snorkel, paddle board & kayak. We loved our 5 days in paradise.


JUST BRILLIANT. This is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a fantastic location, brilliant view, and spectacular service. Nestled right on the beach at the southern end of the island - you can only describe the location as idyllic. The villas are very private and are in complete taste with their setting. Really enjoyed the fact there were no children in the resort. But what really made the Little Poly for us was the staff. We stayed for 5 nights and could not have been made to feel more special, or part of the family, particularly by Juita, Leilani, and Suzi. I won't continue to rave on but I think the best thing to say is if we were to return to the CI I would not consider staying anywhere else.


PARADISE. We stayed at Little Polynesian Resort Rarotonga for 4 nights in December 2016. I can't really fault anything. They have the best customer service ever, amazing food and a stunning view. I would definitely stay at this resort again!


ABSOLUTELY EXQUISITE. Just returned from 11 nights in ocean front unit 5 at this gorgeous property. The layout and design of the units is perfect. Views from very comfortable king-sized bed directly out to stunning beach and distant reef. Large private deck with adequate outdoor furnishings. Loved the spacious bathroom with twin basins, sep toilet and large shower - plus a private outdoor garden with shower. (A small clothes line in this area with pegs supplied a thoughtful touch.) We found the menu and and meals fantastic and very professionally presented. Seafood chowder was the best ever! Service gracious and charming. Ample drinking water supplied free of charge. The friendly staff without exception displayed caring and personal attention and anticipated our every need. The standard of housekeeping was faultless. The pool and surrounding area is appealing and the crystal clear waters of the seemingly "private" expansive Titikaveka beach offers great snorkelling opportunities. Our entire experience was far beyond our expectations and we appreciated the peace and quiet with ADULTS ONLY policy at this delightful exclusive boutique hotel. Just can't wait to return again next year!


BLESSED. My wife surprised me with this vacation, and we both ended up surprised (we are in our early 50's)! We have never had such a wonderful experience. We were looking for a place that was warm, beautiful beaches, and quiet. We got that and more. I feel what made this vacation so blessed was not only the resort, but the people who worked there, and all of those we met. It restored our faith that there are still some good people on this Earth. We are already in the process of what it will take to return back next year, same time, same bungalow. There are not enough words!
