“Fantastic setting”
Reviewed 5 May 2012

Just had 8 days of rest and relaxation at the Little Poly. Outstanding setting overlooking the lagoon, friendly and helpful staff, beautiful island with everything you need. The only drawbacks were the unserviceability of the in-room internet, and the quality of the food could be improved.

Room Tip: On beach rooms are a must - step off the deck onto the sand!

Kia orana. Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our resort. I am happy to advise you we have a new Food and Beverage Manager who is introducing innovative recipes to our menu. The IT man is at present working at getting wifi up and running in the rooms which he assures us will happen in the next couple of days.

On Feb 28 we got married at Little Poly. It was our dream to marry on a tropical beach and this was perfect! When we arrived we discussed all our wishes for the most beautiful day of our life. Everything went as planned. The sun was shining, the beach was decorated with an arch way and torches and it all looked so romantic. As it was just the two of us it was a very intimate ceremony with a stunning view on the lagoon. The photographer did an excellent job. Our weddings pics are sooo beautiful!
Everything that already has been written by the people who rated this hotel as excellent is true. We read a large number of reviews before our trip and we can only agree with the others. We really recommend this hotel for a wedding or honeymoon. Someday we’ll return to the Cook Islands for our anniversary …
We also want to thank the staff for making our dream come true. IT WAS FANTASTIC!

Room Tip: Beach Are 2 is perfectly located! Very close to the beach and still very private. We really recommen...

Just returned from 5 nights at Little Polynesian (April 2012!)- and as another reviewer noted, the images on their website do not do this place justice. The beach bungalows are exceptional and they have thought of everything - including private open air jacuzzi tub out the back to soak and watch the stars.

They have kayaks to use and the beach is pure paradise - didn't see any other tourists using it, so it feels totally private - and with the breakers 200 meters out, you don't have to navigate any surf to dip right into the tropical marine aquarium just steps from your door. We didn't snorkel until our final day, and I wish we had done this sooner as the water was littered with beautiful marine creatures like blue starfish, parrotfish, angelfish, corals - all of that and so much more! If you can break away from LIttle Poly, you can trek across the island on a trail - with amazing tropical foliage, few bugs and most importantly - no predators!

My partner and I are gay, and we were a bit concerned about visiting the Cook Islands as they have anti-gay laws on the books (7 years in jail! Not cute!), but the islanders were friendly and accommodating as could be and the exceptional staff at Little Poly put us right at ease. Huge shout out to the wonderful and charming Billie at the front desk who was especially helpful and always smiling. She even loaned us her moped when ours was incapacitated!

Room Tip: The beach bungalows are right on the water and come with a fridge and coffee/tea making facilities...

Thank you so much for taking time out to write such a lovely review for us. You are right we are the perfect paradise for everyone. We have had many gay couples which also loved the privacy of the resort and the friendliness of the staff so I am glad you put that out there. Ka kite ano (see you again)

We have just come back from a 5 night stay at The Little Poly and cannot recommend it highly enough. The accommodation is amazing - we stayed in an over beach bungalow. It was extremely clean and well maintained and the pictures on the Little Poly's own website do not do it justice. The staff were very friendly and nothing was ever too much trouble for them - they bent over backwards to help wherever they could and really made our stay perfect in every way! Thanks to Alex, Mareana, Billie, Augustine and Vicki - you guys rock! Five nights was way too short - We will definitely be back! Mel & Evan x

My partner and I had 5 nights here at the end of March and it was absolutely fantastic. The hotel is lovely, very clean and quiet, and the staff were some of the nicest and most helpful people i have ever come across in all my travels.

Rarotonga is a real tropial paradise and we will definitely be back. When we go back, we will definitely stay at The Little Polynesian.

Room Tip: If possible, get a beachfront Are.
