It is a teeny weeny island with hardly anything to do. If you want activities most of them are off the island.
When we stayed workman set up not far from our room and we were woken up early every morning to the sound of hammers & power tools - no sleep ins on holiday, how cruel!
Totally infested by mosquitoes, they took measures to curb them but it was still really bad as the accommodation is surrounded by greenery.
The accommodation was set behind the kitchen and so everything always smelt like cooking fat.
The food was terrible, no menu they cook it up and hopefully it's something you want. It was quite fatty & they fry their food in fat which has a sweet tang to it so even that was yuck.
We were concerned with the lack of hygiene at the bar. The cups provided with the jugs of water on the bar aren't cleaned properly. Many times I watched the barman take dirty ones, slop some water over them and return them onto the tray as 'clean'.
Hepatitis and meningitis are very easily transferred through dirty glassware & the lack of hygiene at the bar could easily spread these diseases amongst the guests - it is even more likely due to the international mix of the guests. They had a steraliser just didn't bother to use it! I voiced my concerns but they fell on deaf ears.
The hotel style accommodation is small and shabby & every evening someone comes in turns down your bed, shuts all the windows & turns off the fan. In tropical heat how is that sensible?! We would return to our room all closed up and it was like entering an oven.
I've been to Fiji before & had a great holiday so I did have something to compare this to. Beachcomber resort was total crap & we couldn't wait to leave.
