We stayed two nights in this really beautiful and relaxing place. We enjoy the location and the calm there is here. All the staff is nice and friendly. Having the cooking facility it is better to buy all what you need in advance on the main island. You do not feel the need for hot shower, it is missing, but... More

Stayed here for three nights in September 2014, having originally stayed for three nights in July 2014. Absolutely love the place, we will definitely be back again. We stayed in a beachfront cottage which was brilliant but for three nights any of the accommodation would be fine. Each time we have been there has been someone staying for a month... More

Lovely setting, accommodation is simple and basic but clean and tidy. No rats no cockroaches.No hot water showers but you don't need them as the water is warmish anyway. Power only when the generator is running but that was at least 6 hours a day - a morning and evening period each day. Cell phone access if you want internet... More

Absolutely awesome place, not big on whistles and bells but full of friendly people, the owner maxine and Filo and the rest of the staff treat you more like old friends than guests. most of the other guests we met had been coming to macdonalds for up to 10 years and staying for long stays and were like family to...

After visiting Fiji for 30 years I finally made it to McDonalds Nananu Beach Cottages. I wonder why it took me so long. This is the best place to stay if you look for peace, great beach, good snorkelling and a tidy and clean self-contained cottage. If you don't want to cook there is always the restaurant or a pizza...

We loved our time at McDonalds - the perfect place to get away with the family if you're looking for something simple and aren't so much into the crowds of other islands. Nananu-i-Ra is very quiet, at least at this time of year. The people there were mainly expats. We have two kids, 5 and 7, and we spent most... More

We stayed 4 nights on Nananui I Ra island as a family group. It was our second visit, the first being a golden wedding celebration for parents 13 years earlier which had been a highlight of that trip. I am pleased to say Maxine MacDonald has kept the low key friendly character of the place that so appealed to us... More

We stayed at MacDonalds cottages for 4 nights at the end of our 2 week trip to Fiji - we intend to return next year - need I say more? The island is just lovely, with great snorkelling just off the jetty in front of MacDonalds, and an excellent coral reef off 'back beach' - just over the other side... More

If you know what to expect here you will love Nananu. Macdonalds cottages are basic but comfortable. The electricity goes off from about 10pm-8am and then again during the day and there's only cold water in the shower. Neither of these things is a big deal though, although keeping food cold enough in the fridge is a challenge. Other than... More

We took the three hour bus trip up from Nadi and purchased groceries along the way. A fifteen minute boat ride boat us to the jetty at MacDonalds. What a gorgeous spot! We stayed in one of the beach front cottages which had two bedrooms, small sitting area, kitchenette and bathroom. We made our own breakfast and lunch then had... More
