My husband and I went to Fiji for part of our backpacking honeymoon. Originally, we wanted to stay at Otto and Fanny's, which is just a short walk from David's place, but were told by our travel agent at the Airport that it was full. It wasn't, but that is another story.
Generally, the stay was good, even though we did not get the bure that we wanted as they were already taken full (we wanted one with a bathroom and there are only 2 available) so we ended up with a very simple bure with one double and one single bed, right off the beach, with a hammock directly outside our door. Really, there was not much to complain about, except that the private bathroom would have been nice, instead of having to walk to the main bath all the time. (watch out for falling coconuts, my husband got hit in the hand with one, if it was on the head, he could have died!).
All our food was included in our stay. it was generally pretty good and we did get to experinece a traditional Lovo, which was great. The only downfall to the meals, is that you have no choice as to what you get, but they do serve you more than you can possibly eat, so no worries about starving, unless you are a really picky eater.
The beach right off shore is not the best for swimming or snorkeling, but just a short 5 minute walk down the beach, past the dive centre and past Otto and Fanny's, is a beach out on a point, with some of the most fantastic snorkeling I have ever done. We brought our own equipment, but you can rent from the dive centre as well. We also got the option, for 10 dolllars each, to take a trip over the the famous "Blue lagoon" to snorkel there as well, it was good, but the beach on our island was better in my opinion.
One thing that you have to do, if you visit the island of Tavawa, is to climb up to the top of the island. (Do it early in the morning before it gets too hot) and bring lots of water and don't forget your camera. The view from the top of the island is amazing!
Oh, one more thing, don't forget your bug spray! Since David's Place is located on the lagoon side of the island there is not much of a breeze and the mosquitos can be deadly!
