We stayed here for one night before going to the islands. It's a fun place to stay, had a kava session with singing and fire dancing - which was awesome. The rooms aren't the best but it's excellent value for money

Stayed here on and off during a 3 week trip to Fiji. The staff are great - they are fun and friendly and will always talk to you. The bar is relatively cheap - F$ 5.50 for a beer. Food is quite cheap but the service is awful - they are so laid back that at times you can wait... More

Had a good stay here and enjoyed the kava and music at night. Listened to the staff recommendation and went up north to Tuvununu on Taveuni Island which was a fun place, and went to the Bouma Falls which is awesome and then onto Maqai Eco Resort on nearby Qamea Island which was just magic and a real gem to...

Plenty of free organised daily activities. Staff work hard to make you feel welcome and are enjoying yourself - especially Simon who's always around... More
