Very simply the people there were incredibly understanding, welcoming, giving, and ready to improve anything at anytime. If you appreciate living in the life of a Fijian this place is for you. Spear fishing, snorkeling, rugby, and island visits only cover some of what we did. Also if your willing to create a fun evening culture everything is at your... More

After staying in Nadi for some time there were lots backpackers going back and forth from Mana with great stories so I figured I'd check it out and was not disappointed. The beach is second to none. perfect tropical water with heaps of snorkelling right out front of the hostel. The snorkelling on the other side of the island that... More

Fiji is becoming a lot more expensive and when you consider how much you pay for the very very basic rooms without power and water for long periods and basic food it is a shame as you know that the owner on the mainland is making a lot of money!!! However the island is amazing and all the staff make... More

I went to mana lagoon on a monday, only to stay for 2 days but I liked it so much that I stayed a whole week. As soon as I arrived, the other people that were already at the island joined us and quickly we became a big group. The place is absolutely incredible, and the people are even better.... More

We've never stayed anywhere so dirty. We have so many bites. The manager is on the mainland and once he has your money he is not interested about his guests. We lost out on £200 after leaving earlier because of how filthy it is. The meals are basic, we went hungry. Please do not stay here. I've been travelling around... More

Came out to mana island to get a little piece och Fiji paradise before the cyclone pam was about to hit. Booked the cheapest hostel because I was told that there was a huge difference in price compared to the other backpacker place. Came out and realised that the other backpacker place was just 10 dollars (Fiji) more a night... More
