This was exactly the high end, casual, accommodation I adore - ie. very high standard of lodging (comfortable bed, beautiful aesthetics, well appointed etc) but without the trappings of most generic hotel rooms (phone in bathroom and next to bed, room service etc. Instead it was glorious to stay in a place with only 7 other bungalows and consequently have the pool and beach almost exclusively for my partner and I. E-bikes, snokeling gear, ice, bbq, hire car and so much more always available. Just perfect given my preference for simple, elegant and beautiful. This is not a 'I had a wonderful holiday' rave - I am comparing it with many resorts around the world. I would recommend unless you are looking for a place with a lobby, bar and lots of other people.

The best part of our stay here was the owners and staff. They went above and beyond to ensure we had a pleasant stay, and accommodated our unique itinerary. Their commitment to sustainable tourism is quite evident, and little gestures, such as a sample of fresh muesli or a staff member coming in early to use your rental car to drop you off at the airport added the personal touch that’s so hard to find

Perfection in paradise. Beachfront with pool for afternoon swims. BBQ area and beachfront dining/seating. peaceful and private. Well looked after by our hosts. Comfortable and clean rooms. Bathe outside at night and look at the stars. Ev's and bikes for hire. A short walk to one of the best cafe's on the island. R and R easy at Magic Reef Bungalows.

Great location on the coast which doesn't get as much wind as some of the other parts of the island. Great place to stay and awesome hosts. Electric rental cars at a reasonable price if you want to go exploring.

Beautiful place to stay. Super clean and hosts are super friendly. Let us use room until 2pm on checkout day as the room was free. I would have been happy to stay there a lot longer and would not hesitate to return.

Simon, 7-night romance trip
Verified Wotif guest review

10/10 Exceptional

Magic Reef is an exceptionally well-managed property which is handy to both the airport and the town. The traditional-style property sits on a beautiful section of the lagoon. The bungalows are spacious and have all the modern conveniences - air conditioning, courtyard shower and bath, kitchenette. The grounds are immaculate, with a great pool and bbq. But what really sets the property apart is the service provided by the friendly family who own and operate the hotel. Lawrence is more than happy to help with any request and his provision of a small fleet of Electric Vehicles on-site is a great way to get around an island where taxis are super-expensive! There were also extra little gifts and touches like homemade bread and orange juice in the refrigerator. When we travel we are fortunate to almost always stay at 5-star resorts. Magic Reef in every respect provided the comfort and service we enjoy. We would have given 6 stars if we could.
