        I'm trying to find Papageno on Google Maps but it doesn't show up. Where does the boat take you from the airport? Is it over near Tiliva or Waisilima Resorts? Or is it closer to the airport? Thanks

        Maybe you can't find it because Papageno is the name of the resort, not the location. It's located on the island of Kadavu, about 1.5 hrs south by small place of the main island of Nandi. You're need Fiji-Link to get there... More

        This review of Papageno-Resort is very disconcerting. It is not a review of a resort, instead it is directed as a personal offence against a clear named person. In my eyes this kind of review - personal bullying - should be deleted from public access. In my eyes it is a personal fight againt one person - not a review for travellers. I have been serval times in Papageno, and it wasthe best time in my life, as it was also reported from other guests (see more reviews)
