I would highly recommend this resort for everyone. The one thing that stood out is that they look after families really well while not allowing the families to encroach on couples. The main swimming pool adjacent to the dining area is for adults only but there is a family pool in the kid's club area. The dining areas are also...

First of all I want to say that I/We arrived at JMC a little worse for wear. I contracted conjunctivitis the previous day/night in Nadi so wasn't feeling the best for the first three days of our stay, and also couldn't swim/snorkel/dive or really even hang out with my kids as I didn't want to infect others. This put a...

This is a special place, it's not fancy 5 star but simple and classic in style. There is no a/c, no phones in the rooms and no TVs- yeh!! On arrival my kids met their nanny and buddy and were whisked out of my tired arms immediately- heaven! The bures are spacious with screened louvres all around, wide deck with...

We had high expectations but there were nothing compared to the outstanding family experience we have just enjoyed at JMC Resort. The true plus of this resort is the staff and the great atmosphere that we perceived from the 1st sec to the end of our stay. Welcome home!! Yes we felt at home during the 6 nights we spent...

We had a great family holiday at Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort in Fiji. Great base for diving and snorkelling and the Bula Bula Club must be one of the best (if not THE best) kids club around, catering well even up to young teens. Our 10 year old wanted to stay all day and was actually happy to get up early...

Our 9 night family holiday is sadly coming to a close. We’ve been to many resorts across Fiji and it’s islands but this experience is truly unique for so many reasons. Diving – I haven’t had a dive since before having my nearly 6 year old. A little nervous about getting back in the water the JMC dive team made...

My husband and I agreed that this was the first holiday since having children where there were large segments of time where we both got to relax and have a chance to have a holiday ourselves. Our children really enjoyed the Bula club and the nannies were wonderful. There were many times where we would go to spend time with...
