Best place I have been in Fiji. Only disappointing thing is I didn't get to see the Manta Rays but thats nature for you not the resort! EVERY SINGLE member of staff was kind funny and very very helpful. I wish England had these nice people. Amazing snorkelling and diving courses that are half the prices of Thailand prices. And...

This small resort has accommodation ranging from backpackers' dormitory to beachfront villas with full ensuite. My wife and I stayed in a beachfront villa, while our children had a tree house - basically a small room on stilts with two beds and shared toilet/shower facilities. The villa was excellent, spacious and cool. The compulsory meal plan at FJD87 per day...

My wife and I loved this place. We stayed in a Beachfront Villa. It was amazing. Fantastic diving (shark and cave dives completed), we saw seven sharks. The dining was the best we found in the islands (12 choices for lunch). Great bars, fun activities and an upbeat cool staff. We enjoyed everything from a Toga Party to Snorkeling to...

We spend an entiere week in the resort, was almost not enough. We stayed in one of the bures. The place is full of charm and we can really feel the Fijian atmosphere. The place is just beautiful with views of the beach and the absolutely turquoise water. The proposed activities are varied and really good (dive, snorkel with mantaray,...

Had a great time at Mantaray! The dorms are very basic and the showers are cold, but I had no issue with either. Wifi access is on the more expensive side, so avoid it unless you really need it. Overall, the resort is awesome, the food is good, and the staff is friendly. If you get the chance to swim...

Stayed there for one night(luckily) recently. The place is pretty bad. The beach is not nice, not pretty at all. The dorm and facilities are terrible. No hot water in showers. No flushing toilets. The food was horrible. Barely ate at all. They over charge for all the activities. I was really disappointed in the whole place.

This was my second trip to Mantaray, and it was as amazing as my first. The scenery is breathtaking and the snorkelling is the best I've seen. We spent most of our days in the water and saw new fish and coral everytime. You can snorkel straight off the beach and don't have to wait for organised trips. We stayed...

WARNING! Do not stay here in the dorm unless you want to be bitten by bed bugs! We had 2 nights booked here but checked out after one. We had only been on the island for a couple of hours when we heard from other people that there were bed bugs in the dorm. An hour or two later when...
