Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The view was great, right next to the beach, even though it was raining the day we visited. The staff were friendly and accomodating, especially Israel who was caring, attentive and helpful. He even replaced a cocktail for me when the one I ordered tasted...funny (mango daiquiri). The snickers one he recommended was delicious. We had the fish wraps and fish and chips (tuna) which both tasted good and came with nice salad. We would definitely eat there again.More

We were in-house guests at the Muri Beach Club Hotel and for some reason overlooked the Silver Sands Restaurant. It was only on our last night in Rarotonga that we decided to dine here and we were impressed! The ribeye steak was as impressive as...at Antipodes the night before and the lamb rack was better than at the Pacific Resort. We had (free) bruschetta with olive tapenade, artisan garlic bread, yellow fin tuna sashimi, chicken skewers, tuna tataki, ribeye steak and lamb rack. All of it was just delicious!More

Wasn’t staying at the resort but went for a dinner there. Food was amazing, had the steak and seafood pasta, very generous portions! Slightly pricey but great quality. Had the tuna tataki, was absolutely delicious! Only downfall was sitting outside at dusk time there was...hundreds of mosquitoes, as warned by the staff! They were very accomodating of us moving tables.More

We werent impressed with the fish wrap. $23 for a pretty average wrap on a plate with a slice of lime. No salad, no fries. And $4.50 for a small bottle of water in a resort that has a filtrtion system and could easily provide...you with a glass of clean water. My fish burger was good. But lunch for shouldn't cost 58 for 2 sandwiches, one bottle of wter and one draught beer.More

I was staying close to the Beach Club and frequented the bar nightly as I was travelling on my own and I enjoyed the company of other people in a similar situation. The staff were very friendly, efficient and enjoyable company. I dined on several...occasions and enjoyed all the meals. The final night, I dined with friends and the special was lamb skewers with paw paw and onions on a rice salad. This was superb and along with all our drinks while dining on the beach was great value for money all round. The final night was special. Thanks Joey, Raj and Maleta along with superb kitchen team. Hopefully will see you again in August.More

Lovely surroundings, the bar staff were friendly. Good Happy Hour specials, 4x beers in a bucket for $20, sat on the beach looking out to the lagoon, what more could you ask for. Good selection of cocktails too. The menu looked tasty but we never...got to eat there. The pool and accommodation/reception looked nice too. Would look at staying at this resort.More

The staff here are sooo friendly, and service is awesome! We attended the island night and weren't aware that it was all meat on the buffet style menu. The Chef cooked us up some fresh greens and did a fresh, island style stir-fry.... the best...stir fry I've had in a while! The bar snacks at happy hour were tasty and the cocktails certainly pack a punch!More

We stayed at this hotel and ate our breakfast here each morning. We ate here on our first and final night and on our final night wished we had eaten there every night as the 5-6 other restaurants we had tried for dinner and restaurant...did not match this one! A great menu choice, something for everyone and can work to needs and dietary requirements. The waiters and waitresses are very attentive, food is delivered well presented and in a timely manner and delicious on eating. We also ordered a burger and fish bites for lunch one day which was brought to us at our beds on the beach! The cocktails and mocktails here are also very well made and of a top bar quality standard. We would definitely eat and drink here if we returned. Sophie & Stu YoungMore

We have just spent the past 7 nights at Muri Beach Club. Leila and her team have gone above and beyond to provide top service with a smile and were really careful with my dietary requirements. Raj, Rowena, Shayla, Joey and all the staff here...have been amazing. The food and drinks are delicious, views incredible and loved how we had access included to the paddle boards, Kayaks and snorkeling gear. Thank you all from Annalise and David, room 205 right on the beach.More
