ARghhhhhh, I think I have over-researched (if there is such a thing!), me and my boyfriend are heading to Fiji one week today, and as usual its a last minute panic to get places booked. There is too much choice!!
I've been looking through all these forums and accommodation reviews and my brain is completely mashed, dont get me wrong, some of the info on these pages are priceless, but no sooner do I decide one place, I read a bad review and it puts me off so I start looking somewhere else and the whole story begins again. It doesnt help that we have chapagne taste but lemonade money, hehe (im a back-packer and I cant bleeding stand back-packers!)
A popular place that repeatedly gets brought up on these forums is the Octopus Resort, tried to book that last week and they have no availability, humpf! Book in advance for that one guys.
Anyway there is a point in my writing this, the one question that I keep coming back to - WHICH ISLANDS SHOULD WE GO TO? (Im not even going to look at accommodation reviews as I have learnt now that someones bad is someones great!), but I still cant decide, theres all the different ones in the Yasawas which seem to have a big back-packer following, Mamanucas which seem quite near to the main land and maybe not as nice, then theres all the smaller scattered ones which no-one really seems to mention. Its very confusing, how the heck do I go about picking one/two of them to visit?
I was hoping someone whos done them all could maybe advise which are the must go to's to help save me from exploding, hehe....
Libbi :) arrghhh
