Great first Fijian Island experience
Amazing first Fiji experience. Great island and location. Great first time snorkeling experience: saw many coral (though a good amount are dying), so many types of fish, giant clams, stingrays, eels, reef shark and mantarays! Had very cheap scuba certification as well. Dorm were good, communal showers great. Only downside need to have more Fijian experience like food. They only do Lovo once a week and don’t know if they had cava/grog. Missed a cultural experience.

Good Stay!
Good stay. Nice and relaxing. Staff is very friendly. Vegan food can have more options at dinner time. Love that we are able to hike and snorkel easily. And staying at the Jungle Bure is quite nice as we are further away from the main actions (music, games, etc). Shower water - unable to adjust between hot/cold. It can go from cold to very hot. We took quick showers instead.

Poor 2.0
Not staying a third time, almost ruined our trip
Unfortunately I don’t have a great deal to say for Mantaray anymore. The first time we came we absolutely loved it here, it’s why we came back. The reef is still absolutely amazing so if you want a good place to snorkel this is the place to be there is a abundance of life in that reef area. We stayed in a reef Bure and it has had a major renovation to it, it actually one of the good changes been made (although we did like the old ones just as much as it had a uniqueness to them in the jungle Bure). The welcome committee was 3 people which was sad to see as last time the whole of Mantaray staff came down to welcome us. The guest out number the staff as the resort has now added extra rooms, making it an impersonal. This was the only hotel we stayed that the staff didn’t learn our names or barely acknowledge us (last time they all managed to get to know us). The waiter staff did try to make a little effort but impossible due to the fact there isn’t enough staff and guests is over populated. One night they couldn’t even fit everyone in the dining area we had to share our table, we didn’t mind but others had to wait for seats. It’s also squished in together, chairs are touching back to back. Food is awful. Minestrone was watered down, I had no pasta in mine, my partner got 3 shells and neither of us got vegetables. It was more like tomato soup. The first night I ordered chicken... there’s was next to nothing (see my pic), more okra (no one ate it) and heaps of mashed potato

Great island resort
The island was perfect and had everything we needed. The diving was good and the sea great for swimming. Staff and food was also a plus.

You have to stay here :)
My husband and I stayed at Mantaray Island resort for 5 nights in a Reef Bure for our honeymoon. Words cannot describe how absolutely gorgeous the room was - beautiful outdoor shower, comfortable queen size bed and very spacious. Not to mention that the beach/ocean are steps from your door. The snorkeling was incredible and you didn’t need to swim far from the shore in order to see amazing types of fish. We also did all the activities the resort had to offer - we swam with the Manta rays twice which was awesome, went sunset tubing and visited Soso Village which were all worth it. The staff at this resort made you feel at home. We felt welcomed and appreciated from the time we arrived to the time we had to sadly leave. My husband and I also stayed at blue lagoon island resort and the staff do not compare. Lastly, the food was delicious! Would reccommend this hotel again and again!!!

Very Good 8.0
The beach is very nice and clear. Love the pizza. Managed to see a shark and some stingray when we snorkel. Went for the manta ray swim but due to the crowd only manage to see manta ray for a min. Everything is excellent except for the breakfast provided. Would prefer if there is more variety for the breakfast.

A lot of effort made in cleanliness
It is a really popular resort, difficult to get rooms unless you booked really early.I was there for 7 days. Every morning when someone leave the stuff would be there to clean up the place and place the mattress under the sun outside the dorm. Meal cost 99 FJD, wrongly written as 95FJD on There are multiple choices for lunch and dinner, unless you stay for a month I doubt you ll get sick of the meals. Did my Open Water diving licence there, diving insurance is included in the package. Provide equipment rental. And paid activities like hiking (which is done on another island) and village tours (didn t managed to go cause minimum group of 4 or willingness to pay for the price of four).
