We just came back from a fantastic holiday at this eco-friendly resort. Matava is off the beaten track and if you are looking for a place where you can relax completely without myriads of other tourists, this is the place to be. The staff is very friendly and welcoming, there are opportunities to experience the Fijian lifestyle (village visits, Kava ceremony etc; the waterfall shouldn't be missed) and some superb diving (beautiful corals, sharks, turtles, manta rays, sea snakes etc.).
The bures are clean and comfortable, but it seemd to depend which one you had. Ours (oceanview) had solar panels for electricity to provide light for reading at night and gas-heated hot water, but other bures had no electricity (oil lamps) and unreliable hot water. So don't expect too much luxury, it's an eco-resort after all.
Meals were a great experience, always a time to catch up with the other guests in a sort of family atmosphere. Food was good and plentiful. We were only a little disappointed because we expected a lot more seafood which we only got when the fishing was successful (which wasn't very often).
And as in the other review: Maggie definitely makes this place! ;-)
