Very good”
Went to Mana to dive. Emailed in advance to find out dive availability and pricing only to get there and find out the dive master/instructor (only 1) for this shop was running a course during these dates and therefore couldn't guarantee dives. Was disappointed he didn't advise us of another dive shop next door, thankfully we found it and were able to book through them.

Very Relaxing for those on a budget”
Great place to stay for backpackers and solotravellers who need a cheaper place to stay in a relatively expensive country in Fiji. Its even better that the hostel is located on a picturesque island, however with the filming of Survivor happening there, the entire island isn't always availble for exploration. That is truly the only complaint (if that is even one, it didn't bother me in the slightest) that I have, otherwise I'd wholeheartedly encourage more folks to go there

Really disappointing ”
We were not informed before arriving on Mana Island that 90% of the island is off limits because they are filming a tv series. We felt we should have been told this on advertising accommodation. The only bit you are allowed on was the beach in front of the hostel which was average. The majority of the island is shut every year for 6 months until July time (I think) so be aware! Staff seemed very uninterested to help you, customer service was really bad. Food was average but quite expensive. Would definitely recommend going to another island with so many others to choose from!

We stayed in the triple room. Only cold water in the shower. There was a rat running around in the room and it's bit too outdated. Location is nice, food is average and not great value for money. But I would definitely recommend the Dive Resort crew, scuba diving was fun with them and worth a try!😊

Great island. Shame most of it is owned by resort, so u can not even see it. Island hoping is a must”
Dormitory - to close to bar = noisy. Bed=military. Private room was much better (very basic but ok). You are stuck with one restaurant - pricy food.

Good Location, poor facilities”
Very good location, located at the front of the beach. But the whole hotel will have no power during the afternoon, I remember is around 2 to 5? around that time. That's too bad, Mana Island is really hot and if the air-conditioner is not working it will be very horrible. Also no one tell me that there will be no power at all at the afternoon. Also there have no hot water, and the breakfast is not very good.

Basic but you feel so included. ”
It's not luxury but when the staff are so friendly and wanting to involve you so much in kava and their traditions, you can't complain. Food is good enough. Gorgeous island and amazing snorkelling. This is a paradise island, sunset beach tour is great including the snorkelling trip. You get what you pay for but the island and staff make it so much more!

Nice backpacker place with good value for money”
We had a simple but clean and nice hut on the beach; loved the terrace with a hammock; breakfast is very simple with toast, some fruit, etc. Otherwise a la carte food good and good value for money. Coral reef in front of the beach, option to hike to a small mountain - overall beautiful island; a bit too much plastic and garbage on the beach in parts. Loved the dive shop they have - great instructors, especially Lexi was fantastic, and awesome dive spots around the islands.

Wedding at the main resort. ”
Basically I had a week of comparing costs to the main resort, laughing at the prices over there and the incompetence of the management there. Stay at Ratu Kini. Get a two person cabin on the beach. Get your transfers included with this. It was the best deal I saw on the island. (I was in a ten person dorm.)The ferrie transfer over costs $130 and the Ratu Kini one costs $75 back Fijian. The beer is cheaper here - $12 stubbies at the resort, $9.50 tallies at Ratu Kini. Tones of activities. Bring your own lock and you get a free locker. Gus is the man. Lena got me tallies every day. Laura makes mad burgers ($20 Fijian with loads of chips.) Stay here a week, it's the intelligent option. Get out and do everything you can. Biggest problem - I missed vegetables so much. Second - the reef is mostly dead out front. It's the same for the whole island though. Snorkeling was so much fun. Photos from the SCUBA diving looked incredible. The school out back is beautiful. The hill gives a nice view :)

Great value getaway for singles or couple”
We stayed (couple) for a long weekend over the end of July, 3 nights in total. We chose to stay in one of the Beachfront villa rooms, which was basic and clean, at about 100 AUD per night. We had villa number 6, which was perfectly placed, close to the restaurant and only metres from the beach (like in the photo). I would definitely recommend paying the little bit extra to stay in the villa rather than a dorm. The villa had one airconditioned room with a double bed, and another bunk bed in the living room. We ended up walking down to the Mana Lagoon backpackers most nights after dinner because it was more social, plenty of young 20-30 year olds staying there. They complained of loud shitty reggae remixes being played until 4 am each night, our Villa was just out of earshot luckily. I am a surfer, and was therefore keen to organize a boat from Mana island to get to Cloudbreak/tavarua area. Beware - this is not an easy or common thing from Mana island despite what the hotel staff will tell you over the phone (they told me it was something done daily, but when I arrived, they didn't even have it written as an option on the blackboard). Chartering a private boat costs $250-$300 FJD for the day, so copping that yourself is hefty. I ended up walking down to Mana island backpackers and finding a few other boys who were keen, we split it 3 ways (payed $80 each). If you are interested in getting a boat, ask around for Pirata the one legged surfing legend who is currently living on Mana island, he will tee it up for you. My gf went diving on two of the days to the Schoolyard, and to another spot, and said both of the dives were great. Food from the restaurant was average and a little pricey, but options are limited. Breakfast was basic but good enough. Load up and try make it to dinner. Overall, epic couple of days. Great staff at Ratu kini make it all the better!

place, fun, staff ... all good :)
This hotel is hotel is really good. It is clean and cheap. The location is good (you can see beautifull things in the sea while snorkeling around). You can go in the village, talk to people, watch the kids playing rugby. You can dive, go to cloud9, go to "castaway island", walk around the island, many things to do ! The staff is great and funny. The food is very good too. The feeling was good in this place, we can recommand it !

Nice place to stay on a budget trip”
Good food, located in a beautiful island, transfers included
Ratu Kini is a nice place to stay, if you're travelling in a budget. The word "Resort" does not feel adequate to the place's structure, though. My partner and I stayed at a deluxe double room, located at the back, close to the village, which was interesting, though a bit far from the beach. The room had air conditioning, which was really helpful to dry out the very humid air. Sleeping there was very good. The bathroom, though, was not properly cleaned for our arrival, since the floor had some slime in it. Shower is cold, they provided us two flasks of hair conditioner, but no shampoo or soap. Bedroom was in really good condition, though, and bed was clean and comfortable. The food at the restaurant is really good, and the menu is full of options, but you still have other places to eat, in case you want to change a little. Waiting for food, though, can be a pain, and we have waited an average of almost 2 hours for each meal apart from breakfest (that means you waste half of your day just waiting). Some times food arrived within 1 hour, which is fine, but at one occasion we waited for more than 3 hours. All this waiting made us look for other places to eat. Breakfest is very simple, basically fruits, bread and cereals with milk, coffee and juice. Pancakes are a treat, but just for the few first people to arrive at the table. Fresh water has to be purchased at the bar, since there are no water fountains. Also, bear in mind that THERE'S NO ATM IN THE ISLAND, so taking a good amount of cash is a great idea. Since Mana Island is a busy place, staff will be gentle, but probably won't engage with you so much. Worth staying as a transitional base, but we'd consider other places for a truly relaxing experience.
