Great location and rooms had plenty of space. Bed very comfortable. Some of the staff were a little grumpy, eg when asked for extra towels (one each when I have long hair is not enough ) it was I was asking for the impossible. Staff took our towels for washing while we were having breakfast out on the deck but didn't replace them until lunch, we couldn't shower before going out.

One of the best places to stay in Muri Beach, great to have a variety of outdoor equipment supplied free and to be in walking distance to good restaurants.

Kia Orana sea view vista

Pros: Friendly and helpful staff. Grounds are well maintained and lots of lovely fresh fruit to pick off the trees.
Cons: The room safe could be a bit more secure. Probably need another couple of paddle boards and a couple more kayaks.
Location: Very handy to night markets, local cafes, eating places, hire companies and tourist attractions.
Had a sea view villa - was lovely no tv, just plenty of time to wind down and relax. Roomy villa with good sized bedroom and bathroom. Lounge dining area good size too and comfortable quality furniture. Weber bbq outside for use (3) for our group of 6 villas and great outdoor seating. Covered patio to sit out with good quality table and chairs and a couple of deck chairs for lounging on. 4 Kayaks and a paddle board to have a play with, bikes, snorkel gear too.

Fantastic holiday

Pros: The free use of the kayaks, paddle boards, and bikes..also the gardens are lovely, free fruit from the office daily...
Cons: It would be good for a sun umbrella for more shade, maybe the hammocks could be relocated as well, by units1 - 10
Location: Fantastic location, close to a lot of activities and some good shops, cafes and the night markets..
We have just had the best holiday ever at Muri Beachcomber, the whole experience was fantastic, we were in a sea view villa and woke every morning to beautiful days and views.. the free use of the bikes, paddle boards, kayaks are an absolute bonus and well used...the grounds are beautiful as well, and Muri Beachcomber is walking distance to a few shops... The dairy close by sells everything you need including alcohol at reasonable prices...The night markets ( right next door) are excellent, you can get beautiful meals starting from $4.00 ( check out the chicken kebabs with fried rice) delicious....oh and the banana pie...Also the burger bar across the road, amazing, a really cute cafe called Deli-iscious, they serve great breakfasts, yummy milkshakes, cheesecakes and custard squares( owned by kiwis) there is also a souvineer shop, a pharmacy, a bakery, an art Place which also sells beautiful sarongs.. A must do is the markets on Saturday in town, Capt Tamas lagoon cruise, Te Ava nui cultural show..There is a fantastic bus service, but if I go again (planning another trip now) I would possibly hire a car for maybe a day or two, I think it would be a bonus to be able to maybe explore more of the island...
