Travelling to Mana with a special needs child

Hi, I was wondering if anyone had been to Mana with their special needs child. In particular if the kids club would be OK for him. My son is 4 and has Autism.

In all my 27 trips to Mana have seen a wide array of children/adults with special needs, disabilities, wheelchair bound etc.. The Fijian staff are wonderful with them all and they will be well taken care of.

But ... when you make your bookings suggest that you make the Management staff well aware & specifically of the needs of your child, in regards to joining the kids club. He will love the experience, - new challenging experience for him and am sure he will cope well.

The kids club staff is great and they are doing their best at entertaining the children. All the kids seem to have a lot of fun! That said it is very casual and I am not sure whether the staff members have appropriate training and experience to look after a child with autism. It is best to contact the resort directly or speak to them once you get there and your child gets a chance to meet the staff and get familiar with the new environment before making a decision. Joining is very easy, you pay FJ$25 for the whole stay and can use the kids club whenevber you like, no need to book or anything, you can just show up.
