We spent 3 night on beachcomber after spending 5 nights in the blue Lagoon resort and it was a nightmare. First it is very very expensive, we paid for a ocean view villa and we could not see the ocean, than we had mouse in the room and we saw a lot more in the bar. the shower was from hell, to shower with hot water meant no pressure and when i asked them to fix it they told me to use cold water so i will have pressure. really? i paid $500 fijian dollars a night and i need to shower in cold water? also the entertainment they have is not so good, the employees go on stage and scream into the mic, and change the music every second. it was impossible to enjoy the music.
if you are single and going to sleep in the dorms and just want to get drunk every night, so this is the place. not reccommended for couples.
one good thing i can say is that there were not a lot of mosquitos.

Bula,
Thank you for your subjective review. Beachcomber is happy to announce that Mary Rose has taken over the role of Manager from Nemia Marama. Mary is enthusiastically restoring the Beachcomber product back to its world class status and has revived many of the special activities that Beachcomber is so well known for. The party atmosphere is back, the food is outstanding, there are activities aplenty and the current staff are energized under the new management and leadership of Mary. Along with being well known around other resorts from the positions she has previously held, Mary, as the new Manager, brings with her freshness, energy, passion and commitment to pleasing all visitors to Beachcomber.
There is a new Beach Wing under construction that will be ready by Christmas which will offer a new accommodation type to Beachcomber’s existing ability to cater for guests of all types. Also there is renovation and other works under way that will ensure that the expectations of all guests are exceeded.
Welcome back to the ‘new’ Beachcomber of old. Where it is so easy to get to and so very hard to leave and the party is on!

We spent four nights on Beachcomber Island and enjoyed every minute!

Stunning beach and scenery. Small island can be walked around in 10-15 mins.

Option to join in and do activities and party up or sit back, relax and do nothing.

Different types of accommodation from dormitory to beach front bures. Some families on the island.

Music does play until early morning so if you are sensitive to sound, ask for a bure on the other side of island.

Nice snorkelling and opportunities to do island hopping day trip and visit to local Village and school.

Tip: When in Fiji islands forget the time! Things happen Fiji time and there is no rush - so relax and enjoy.

Room Tip: Ask for bure over other side of island if sensitive to music being played late at night.

Just been 1 day in beachcomber and it was enough..Not much to do and not as good as some other islands..Lack of activities or welcome of the guests...Not much is offered and it is all about business. Island look great but if you are a family and backpacker you have some other choice...Nothing special there:(

Where do I begin, booking beachcomber our flight agent referred to it as the party island and me and my partner are in our mid 20's we thought to mix our 2 week trip up we will go to beachcomber.
ARRIVING:
We where greated by the beautiful Monica, who to say the least should manage the place and she pretty much does everything around the island and always doing things with a smile. To be honest our room was very disappointing no air con we had 2 single beds which we had to push together, BED BUGS which was very disturbing beachcombers method to this was once someone leaves air the beds on the balcony for a few hours. We where looking to upgrade to the beachfront rooms mostly to get the sea breeze and we where so hot in our room, as we where thinking of doing te upgrade we got talking to another couple who where in them rooms who showed all there bites all over there body and the empty wrappers left in there room from the mice that they are getting in their room.
FOOD:
Our food was included in our package to say the lease curry lunch and dinner for 4 days gets really boring and trying. Lucky we brought food with us to nibble on for lunch. We also brought our own water to cut cost at the island.
STRIKE/SACKING STAFF:
Day one of arriving we wake to no breakfast, bar closed, tried to do activities but that was all closed ask to get a massarge but no one to do that to hear people talking about staff on strike and staff getting fired. We sat there with no idea what was going on being on an Island with nothing not even the bar to get some water. The manager who will reunion the place stood there hands on hips with nothing to say. He is the worst person to be in a place like that his ego over rides the happy holiday feel.
NIGHTLIFE:
If it wasn't for Monica, Ace, Esy at the bar I wouldn't have a good thing to say about this place they where fun amazing and up to make us have as much fun as possible.
OVERALL:
Wouldn't go back in a hurry maybe once new management was to take over beachcomber will be able to live up to its name.

We had a day trip to Beachcomber the day that some of the staff were fired and other went on strike. We heard from guests of the resort that The managers were not letting people know what was going on.
We were so disappointed because it was our last day in Fiji and we had saved for such a long time to be able to make that dream trip out to an exotic island in Fiji.
The 3 positives are that we met some nice guests there, the Snorkelling guides were really nice and were very impressed with the one woman that seemed to be single handedly looking after everyone on the island. But she looked a bit stressed poor thing and had tears in her eyes at the end of the day as she farewelled her former work mates as the were 'kicked' off the island.
We did enjoy lying on the beach and having a swim at high tide. It hurt our feet too much at low tide with all the coral - so had to take turns swimming wearing the crocs.
If you want to go to Beachcomber - find out what is going on with the staff and management first.
Oh and the food was bland. We went hungry the whole day as were weren't offered morning and arvo tea even though we had paid.

Room Tip: Had a peek at a room and it looked nice.
