    I highly recommend Magic Reef Bungalows. The property is beautiful, right on the ocean and staffed by incredibly friendly people. We enjoyed getting to know Lawrence (the owner) and Gill (General Manager). They offered incredible suggestions for places to see and eat. We even were invited to happy hour with the team!

    We had the most marvelous vacation at Magic Reef. The views from our bungalow was great!! Gillian and Lawrence really went out of their way for us a number of times. They are some of the nicest host and are so friendly. I have never had resort owners get so involved to making sure your experience is going to be special. We were there 2 weeks and by the time we felt we all felt like close friends. On aspect of the resort that made it perfect for us is that it was an adult only resort. It was so peaceful and that was exactly what I wanted from this vacation. If we wanted action that are plenty of restaurants with live music and dancing. Many walking distance. This will not be the last time I vacation at Magic Reef.

    Our bungalow was exactly what we were hoping for! It was clean and very private. We loved the Polynesian architecture and touches throughout the bungalow. The owners and the manager, Gillian, were very welcoming and helpful. We rented the eBikes and road around the island. The beach is not for swimming but that is pretty hit or miss around the island. There were very good places to eat within walking distance (on the beach). We would definitely return to Magic Reef!

    This tranquil property is set right on the beach. The bungalows are homey, and the staff is really amazing. We enjoyed sitting on our front decks, reading or listening to the waves. Also, the outdoor shower and bathtub were an extra special addition.

    Bungalow was lovely. Comfortable and well maintained. Specially liked welcome fruit plate with brad, butter and jam. Freshly ground coffee, tea, milk and juice were also provided. Staff is friendly and helpful. Suggest to anyone booking to request a bungalow close to the beach.
