8/10 Very good

Beach was wonderful. Had this been first place we stayed we would have given higher marks, but stayed first at another island resort that had choices for meals instead of fish, fish, and more fish. Service at other resort better too as never had to ask for anything as someone always asking and attentive to our wishes.

Excellent Island Adventure
The staff were absolutely wonderful, they made had everything we needed and were very helpful. hey served 2 meals of fish per day, cooked in a different recipe for each meal. Sounds like a lot of fish but it was delicious. Very nice place for swimming and snorkelling. They have free use of paddle boards and kayaks which is a nice touch. Highly recommend it!

8/10 Very good

We came here for the last leg of our honeymoon and this was our first time in Fiji. The staff was wonderful - so sweet and accommodating and always willing to try to help us. The water temperature for the shower was very finicky, but the bathroom/shower outside was very cool. Our bure was very comfortable and we had a kitchen but it did not have any pots/pans plates/silverware. It was nice to have a refrigerator though. The water comes up pretty close to the bures which was really nice, and you're able to walk right out into the water for snorkeling. We used the facility next door for our scuba activities and diving. They accommodated me fairly well for being a vegetarian as they only offer one meal for lunch and dinner with fairly the same breakfast choices daily. Some more variety with their meals, and maybe some options for mid-day to eat would be a good idea as there are no other places nearby to eat and if the kitchen is closed you can't get any food besides chips at the bar. We did enjoy the community feel and our last night there was the Lovo dinner buffet and a Kava ceremony afterwards which was wonderful. Thank you Ben, Anna and Joe for all of your help during our stay - you guys were great. If you enjoy a small, community style, simple stay in Fiji, this place will fit you just fine.

6/10 Good

The situation of the property is second to none with the most beautiful scenery, staff are all very friendly and helpful with lots of activities to take part in. The only reason I havent given a higher score is purely based on the food which was all fish, I don't eat fish at all so I opted for the vegetarian option but I just felt that the $98 was expensive.

4/10 Fair

The staff and location are fabulous! The actual Bures are terrible. We stayed in Bure 4 for 3 nights. The size and amenities of the bure were fine. However, the screens were filthy with bugs, there were spider webs on the bench in our room, our sheets had sand, and we could not escape ants and mosquitos - in or out of the room. The only relief was in the ocean. Additionally, the outdoor shower worked fine if scalding water, lukewarm and ice cold water in random rotation with minimal pressure are your idea or working fine. The food was fabulous! I happen to love fish but if you don't, I have no idea what you will eat. Lunch and Dinner is limited to the single option which is fish. Breakfast is pastries, fruit, hard boiled eggs, cereal... It was all presented and cooked well. I really did enjoy it but won't be eating fish anytime again soon. Instant coffee and tea are available complimentary from early morning until after Dinner as is filtered water. We were also able to get ice on a couple occassions. Cocktails are available and during our stay typically two special drinks were offered at F$35 to F$40. Soda was also available for F$5.50 which I thought pretty reasonable. We took three tours - snorkeling at Honeymoon Beach, Blue Lagoon and Sawa-i-Lau Caves. These tours were actually some of the best we have ever taken. If I was just reviewing the tours, a 5 would not be high enough. Overall, the resort was super boring, dirty and buggy.

Such a peaceful place. Fresh local food served daily. Beach is lovely and the reef for snorkelling is just outside your door and is amazing.
