We have just returned from 6 nights at mana resort. It was our honeymoon but we also took our kids aged 14mths and 4yrs.
We stayed in an ocean front suite, which was a great room, very large and the newest of the rooms at mana. 2 big bathrooms were good as being right on the beach alot of sand gets trudged in, particularly when it was 30-35 degrees most days and you spend most of your time in the water swimming or at the pool.
We are camping Kiwis and spend alot of time outdoors and have a caravan at a beach in NZ we use most weekends, so we really love the outdoors and the outdoor style dining/bbq style food avaliable at Mana. There are lots of moans and groans about the food at mana, but we found it pretty good overall, not five star for sure but very good overall, we ate at the buffet for all our meals (easier with kids) and they have different themes most nights.
Overall a good selection of food with great fresh fruits (melons, pineapple etc) which is good.
If there are any gripes to be had it really is only small stuff, but didnt really worry us, having lived in the cooks islands for a year I know that Pacific people work in pacific time and at their own pace, yes at times the service was slow, and the same cocktale ordered 3 times was diffrent each time is all part of the fun.
There are some improvemetns they could make, but who wants a 5 star Dull holiday in the middle of the pacific?
The best part of mana is the people, if you have kids dont worry, use the Kids club its fantastic, use the babysitters ($5 FJD per hour) gave us plenty of time to ourselves and they are great with the kids, we had the same babysitter everytime (thanks Andy you made our trip even more special) and she even took the kids to a church service in the local villiage which our 4 yr old loved, we dont go to church ourselves but she loved the singing.
Overall MANA is magic, great beaches, wonderful views, good food and overall a magical relaxing place to holiday. We would recommend this place to our friends and we will return ourselves. Leaves the Mainland Fiji destinations for dead.
