The resort is good. It is a popular one in the local area. It is quite expensive at 3k per night. The price-performance ratio is average. Although it has the best beaches and lagoons on the main island, it is still incomparable with the outlying islands. It is good to stay for one night and experience it. OK.

The staff of the Little Polynesian were great. They were all gracious and hospitable and truly made the stay. The manager even drove us to their sister resort for a spa treatment! The restaurant produced delicious, high quality meals. The pool was small but beautiful. We appreciated the complimentary snorkel equipment. The rooms were adequate and we appreciated having Nespresso coffee available.

We purchased this holiday via Luxury Escapes and really couldn't complain. The resort is stunning, tranquil and relaxing. There are only 10 beachfront bungalows and 4 garden studios. We stayed in bungalow number 3, just a few steps from the beach. The view of the lagoon was spectacular and utilities perfect. There is a little kitchenette with a Nespresso machine, milk frother, sink, even a full set of cutlery, wine opener, chopping board and gear for snorkelling ready in the wardrobe. The bathroom is spacious and bright but we would welcome to have a tub there. The staff in the restaurant was attentive, especially around dinner time and they made our time wonderful. Chef Pai prepared a wonderful meal for us and the pork belly was unforgettable!!! We want to thank especially Chantelle, the lovely lady manager in charge. She is truly a kind person with a great heart. Chantelle is so friendly, professional, and caring and we could see that the comfort of guests is her priority. We were only a little bit disappointed by Laggon because there was nothing to see under the water due to the decline in coral reef health.

Most beautiful relaxing holiday my self and wife have enjoyed at a resort ! I honestly don’t know where to start, Thank you Chantel and all staff from the moment we checked in everything was amazing, the service crew were amazing, Jiatu, Waqa, Florence, Tom and all the rest :). And of course we can’t forget about our AMAZING chefs, the food here was so delicious and all FRESH produce, breakfast lunch and dinner even dessert, honestly the most delicious seafood chowder I have ever had. The rooms are exceptionally clean and the house-keeping was amazing also thank you Raj for always making sure everything was up to standard with our room. The whole resort is a very nice and clean area always kept up with maintenance, very nice and peaceful with the resort being an adults only. Again a very big thank you to all staff and management you have all been amazing and we hope to one day in the near future see you all again.

The Little Polynesian is an incredible place to stay. It is on the best side of the island for swimming and snorkeling. The rooms open out to the sea so you can snorkel from your room. The restaurant is wonderful. I had some dietary requirements and these were no issue at all. We ate at the restaurant most nights - why go anywhere else with a menu like that. The rooms are spacious and the bed is really comfortable. We will be back!!!!

My wife and I have just returned from our Cook Islands holiday. We chose the Little Polynesian to stay at on Raro and do not regret the choice - it was excellent. The resort is very boutique. In some ways I would describe it as a collection of beachfront huts (and a couple of garden rooms) with a restaurant and pool. It doesn't have a big reception or common area (other than the restaurant), and is adults only. The room was exactly what you would want. Facing directly onto the beach with a good area for swimming out the front. The restaurant was consistently very good and the chef did an amazing job of working around my wifes dietary needs (dairy and gluten free). This even went as far as preparing a seperate little dish for her each morning (without us asking) as part of included breakfast given she couldnt eat the pastries (i did though - and they were good!). The staff were also excellent and I would like to thank them for looking after us whilst we were there. Its pretty well located on the island within easy reach of the Muri beach area (we had a car - 5 mins up the road), but seperate enough to enjoy its own peace and quiet..

We recently stayed at Little Polynesian while visiting Raratonga . We had a beautiful garden studio room which was equipped with all the amenities that you need . The resort was breathtakingly beautiful with it’s gorgeous gardens and it’s blue pool that stood out behind the giant coconut trees . Chantelle and Greg were very welcoming and always had a warm greeting from the minute we arrived . We felt so welcomed by all the staff . The breakfasts were ample with daily fresh fruits pastry’s and hot beverages . Miri was delightful and we looked forward to see her smiling face each time we dined . Our rooms were kept cleaned and refreshed daily . All in all we had the best time at Little Polynesian and would highly recommend it to anyone. Thank you Mik and Grace
