We spent a week at the Matavai Resort staying in the Studio Apartments which are 1.5km from the main hotel. The studio is spacious, well equipped with the most spectacular view, right on the ocean front.

i have been there with my family for a week. The hotel is nice, the rooms are clean and spacious. However, there are 2 windows in the room without curtains; consequently, it is very difficult to sleep in the morning. At noon, the restaurant only offers a few dishes, in the evening, there is only buffet food.
