We moved rooms after two hours after finding bedbugs. I think the staff only let us move because I managed to catch one of them. The next room also had bedbugs, but not nearly as many - I found one a day afterwards. Staff there said it was just a way of life and that their rooms had bedbugs too.... More

Myself and my boyfriend booked a family bure and meals for 3 days 2 nights. We were greater by two members of staff singing a welcome song which I thought was really nice. On arrival we were offered complimentary orange juice. We were checked in fast. Food was really nice, we never disliked a meal, we rented kayaks and snorkelling... More

I stayed here on a good package deal from their website that the local traders couldn't beat. I had 4 nights here and had a great time and met loads of folk that became instant friends. The room was pretty good, a five bed dorm with air con and bathroom with shower. It is a cold shower but the place... More

We stayed at Mana Island Resort a couple of hundred metres down the beach last week and much more expensive. As a family of two adults and two children (9 and 12) we ate at Ratu Kini's several times and appreciated the huge price difference between them and the resort down the beach. The staff were friendly and welcoming every... More

My wife and I stayed 7 nights in the Dorm Room at Ratu Kini's. The dorm room is basic and there isn't hot water but for what you're paying it's good. The best thing about Ratu Kini are the people. We were able to meet so many travelers and share some awesome experiences. We went on a day trip to... More

Little bit late with the review here. Travelled to fiji with my partner back in Feb 2014. Spent the first week on the main island after flying into Nadi. This was spent at Danny's Village Homestay. If you are doing Fiji I would put this down as a must!! 2nd week was spent at Ratu Kini and we had a... More

Stayed at Ratu Kini for a week and loved every day of it! Yes, dorms have no hot water and the meal package doesn't include even water but these are just little annoyances compared to the great atmosphere the place has (free internet would be nice, though...)! Dave and Hope are amazing scuba instructors and I still cannot believe that... More

We recently stayed at Mana island resort. For four of our nights ( all of them ) we dinned at the backpackers. It was a great restaurant filled with a happy , cheerful vibe. The food was great and at a reasonable cost for the serving size. Every night there was entertainment from the Fijians beautiful singing. The first couple... More

I have been visiting Fiji for 10 days, staying 3 nights in Nadi, 2 in Beachcomber Island and I'm currently spending 5 nights in Mana Island. If you are considering coming to Ratu Kini, my suggestion is to change your mind and go somewhere else! I would have given 0 points but it's not possible. I have never written a... More
