Weekend Away at Barefoot Manta
Upon arrival, I was a bit surprised to find that there was a resort package fee of FJ$119 that wasn't indicated on the website. This fee includes all of your meals, wifi, and access to the equipment at the dive shop. The very kind manager approached me after check in and apologized profusely, letting me know that they had been having troubles with in making sure the fee was made known prior to booking. While the hotel did immediately send an email after booking informing me of the fee, the manager assured me that they didn't want to be the kind of place that surprised people with hidden fees and would continue to work with on remedying this situation. I sincerely appreciated her candor. I booked a dorm room in a beach view bure and ended up with the entire bure to myself, which was a great as private rooms were about three times the cost! :) The room was clean and comfortable and the bathroom and showers were only steps away from the bure. The food was more authentic than what you would get at a large chain resort and you won't have the same amount of options as you would at a chain hotel restaurant, but it was all very tasty. The reef near the hotel makes for great snorkeling and the sunrise over Sunrise Beach can't be beat! If I'm ever in Fiji again, I'd definitely stay at Barefoot Manta!

This is an island paradise. The little huts on the beach are the ultimate in relaxation. There is great snorkelling right outside your door. Lots of places to relax in hammocks or daily choices of activities. The staff were amazing!!! They take interest in you, knowing your name and put off excellent entertainment on Saturday nights. The food is delicious and fresh made everyday. It is quiet and safe. If you ar looking for an island paradise getaway, come here.

Glamping! Our Bure was right on the beach and yet very private. The resort was quite, but there were always activities to participate in. We could see the ocean from our bed and hear the waves when drifting off to sleep and when we woke. So relaxing. The staff was terrific and always so warm and welcoming!
