I was a bit worried as after I had booked, I read some pretty bad reviews, in particular about the restaurant. Yes, it is a buffet, yes it isn’t cheap and yes, it would be nice to have the choice of choosing something besides the...More
Beautiful resort! traveled here and was given an inspection with a bunch of travel agents from Australia on an educational famil! Great location, beautiful pool area and stunning views! plenty of water sports and relaxing to do here!

Stayed in a beautiful beach front bungalow. The room was clean and spacious! Friendly and helpful staff (speak english well). Free boat transfer to and from the Island. Ear plugs were provided, because the waves crashing onto the shore can be quite noisy at times....More

Hi Lori, we just came back. The overwater bungalow is beautiful. Our breakfast was included. Lunch "snacks" is about $Aus 16 each. Lunch buffet cost us $Aus 110 each so don't have lunch buffet, do the snacks which is a stew with chips!! Dinner was $Aus 110 each but they gave us 50% off dinners. No food avail at the bar just cocktails & beer but only open on weekends. We were very disappointed in the buffet. The seafood was not fresh or of good quality. As the days went on the buffet turned into leftovers. Sausages and tuna from the day before was turned into a salad with mayo. Unfortunately there is nothing else to eat so you are a bit stuck. I'd go straight to the grill which is in the buffet and cooked for you on the spot, but even the meat is poor quality but at least you know it's not leftovers. Grab some food from the mainland before going over. The desserts are really good and cheese selection was great. No crackers though so chop up some baguettes. They had a large selection of wine. A very small list of cocktails and the staff were not trained in making cocktails or a good coffee. The rooms only have a small bar fridge & kettle so you can't prepare much. We joked about catching our own fish & cooking it on a fire on the beach! If you have a snake phobia don't go! I saw 25 snakes in 4 days. They crawl up the stairs from the water & sun themselves on your deck. Keep your door closed! They are not aggressive but they are venomous although they'd have to bite you in between your toes etc as their heads are small. You'll see heaps of turtles which are gorgeous. Practice your French as the staff have little English skills. We had fun and the over water bungalow was perfect. Loved the shower and marble bathroom. Bedroom was Devine and view amazing. What let us down was the food and customer service. Basically you are paying for the uniqueness of the room and location. Good luck... I hope you have a better holiday than us, maybe they'll lift their game in the food department, because you are paying a lot for an RSL /bowling club type meal. Ps Fiji is awesome plus they have overwater bungalows near Mana Island. Just a thought. xx
