We loved the Funky Fish! The snorkelling was amazing and the staff incredible. My boys loved the kayaking, paddle boarding and beach volleyball. They also had lots of fun playing pool. We felt like we were part of the family- sharing in music and kava ceremonies. The rooms were simple but tranquil and the hammocks by the sea were ideal.... More

We stayed In a private dorm room for two nights and thought it was great. The food was good and is served as a buffet for the evenings. There is a meal plan option or you can order off the menu but we didn't quite figure out how it worked so just went with the buffet. Breakfast was basic but... More

Bula Ed, Thanks for the first review since we have reopened and thanks for such a great review as well. Indeed we have accommodation options to suit all needs and the menu is proving to be very popular. It has been fairly cool by Fiji standards lately and as a result, the pool is not at its usual temperature, but... More

Disappointed!!! I grew up visiting Fiji and thought this would be a great way to show off this tropical paradise to my partner! WRONG!!! We travelled on a scoupon voucher and I was appalled that they would charge people more than what we paid. We had 53% off the normal price. The menu is the same EVERY DAY and every... More

Location full of mosquitos!!! The sea isn't good at all, there is low tide during the day and you can't enjoy neither the beach nor the sea. If you walk to the pick the landscape is amazing... but the mosquitos will follow you! and there is also a very noisy electric generator working all the day, so you can't even... More
