This was our 2nd stay at Jean-Michel Resort and our experiences last time led me to think I might have exaggerated how fantastic this resort was in my mind... But it was just as fantastic, actually this time better than last time. The style of resort is not your typical 'luxury' resort - not a 'Westin' or a 'Sheraton' -...

We enjoyed a 9 night stay in a 2 bedroom with our 3 children aged 2, 6 and 8. First impressions were typical of a 5 star tropical resort. Initially I was disappointed to discover that the beach wasn't a white sandy beach often associated with other Fiji islands we have been to. However I soon got over this! We...

All the reviews have pretty much said what needs to be said. We have been to Cousteau twice with a 6 year gap in between. Once pre-kids, the second making full use of Bula Club. Go to Cousteau if you want to be well-looked after, your kids to have a ball, fully relax & recharge. The staff are fantastic, helpful...

I have been to a few resorts/ islands in Fiji - but nothing compares to JMC - I recently spent 8 nights there with my husband and 2 children during the NSW July school holidays - our children are 10 yrs & 7 yrs. Where do I start? * The 18 seater flight over from Nadi and back was on...

The place is stunning etc , as mentioned in other posts. We had heard a lot about the kids club and although we have 2 shy girls it seemed that they would be swept up in it all Er no Our girls were allotted 2 'buddies' who were just as shy. And only after I asked after a couple of...

Nothing compares to JMC. Great food. Tick. Kids club, double tick. Enough activities to make sure you don't bored. Double tick. Service and friendliness of staff. Tick. The only thing I can suggest it to be mindful of the mozzies. Ask for mosquitio nets to be put above your beds. Also we had a garden bure and there was no...

I have just returned from 6 nights at this amazing resort. I travelled with my husband and our 2 year old twins. Working in the travel industry has its perks and has allowed us to stay at some amazing properties around the world however none have been more memorable than our time at Jean Michel Cousteau. The kids loved their...

The minute you arrive you realise this is not your average family holiday. Comparing this resort with any other based on value for money or convenience of location is simply not relevant. Greeted with a welcome song by strangers from the staff and a welcome drink, you will be farewelled with a Fijian farewell song by your resort family. You...

I've never written a review before but felt this hotel definitely deserved it. We came back today after only 3 nights at this resort, and I must say I was very taken back. When we arrived, our 2 kids were whisked away to the awesome Bula club by their own nannies. I actually felt like I was on a mini...

We arrived back home last week from a fantastic holiday at JMCR. We travelled as a family with 2 children (3 year old and 7 year old). This is our 3rd time at JMCR.
