After having our holiday with friends at Mana island resort, I wouldn't recommend it to others.
It wasn't really bad, just a bit of a disappointment. The beaches surrounding the island are breathtakingly beautiful, as are the Fijian people.
The service wasn't the best, as it seemed very understaffed compared to other Fijian resorts. For example at the buffet we were always chasing staff to clear tables and order drinks etc.
For $70FJD per head, we expected better.
One massive issue we had, was that the resort seemed to turn off their entire water supply to the rooms from about 1am until 5am. This REALLY bothered us. Can you imagine having a baby that needs a bottle, but having no running water? Hot or cold? Or not being able to flush the toilet? On that note, I would recommend being careful with the tap water as although it is apparently safe to drink, it is recommended to boil prior to drinking.
The room service was very poor, where we often would go back to our room at the end of the day (5ish) to find our rooms not cleaned and no clean towels for us.
Especially compared to other Fijian resorts, we felt that Mana lacked atmosphere.Just some music, or even pool side service for drinks would have made a huge difference.
On a positive note, the snorkeling was AMAZING!
