This was our 5th trip to Fiji and we decided to leave Nanuya Island Resort early and try Navutu Stars. After reading the reviews and the resort website, we were expecting luxury ~ a wonderful beach, fantastic swimming/snorkelling and 5 star dining. We did find wonderful staff and large, ocean front bures but we were very disappointed in the beach, swimming/snorkelling and the dining. The beach has been reclaimed and is totally unswimable during mid to low tide, the water is murky and the dining lacking in consistancy. As supper must be ordered at lunch, there is no mystery surrounding dinner and you are in and out of the dining room in less than an hour. The prawns were cooked to perfection the first night; the next night they were overcooked and tough. The beef was perfectly done but the sauce lacked flavour. We have had much better meals at other resorts. Considering the cost of the accommodation, we did not expect to be charged for snorkelling trips when you could not snorkel/swim in front of the resort. $25US/person/hour!! The highlights of our visit were the staff, Watti's performance and the children's choir. Note: don't wear your good clothes/shoes to church as Dan will expect you to walk back through the mud and thistles. We went by boat but had to walk back?? Certainly not the service we expected at a 5 Star resort. Unfortunately, the manager was a "talker" not a "listener" and could not even offer us a simple sandwich when we did not want to participate in the buffet offering.
