We spent our summer holiday at Matamanoa Island for a total of 14 nights. Upon arriving I was worried there woudln't be enoguh to do for this period but we loved it. The beach is so divine, turquoise clean water and amazing snorkelling. Bure's are well sized though I would caution people opting for the hotel rooms as they really are very small. The food was great at dinner, however lunch was at times a bit hit and miss.
My husband went fishing 4 times and caught massive tuna which the chef then cooked up for us for lunches, which was sensational. We met many fabulous people, visisted nearby islands, snorkelled and partcipated in many of the activities provided by the island, all of which provided us with a happy and easy trip. The staff were warm and friendly but if you go there thinking they function at the same high-paced rate as we do in the city, forget it, it doesn't work that way and you might get frustrated. Food standards were ok, not great, so you do need to go with an open mind to manage this, however, we did have some very nice meals.
Overall we had a wonderful trip and I can't remember a happier, more relaxing holiday experience.
