Bad hygiene and poor service
the hygiene is actually shocking, there are lots of flies around especially at the dinner tables, the toilets are quite dirty, we had blood stains on the bed sheets which was really unpleasant. Not to forget only cold showers are possible. We had booked ten days in advance -- unfortunately -- during our stay there were two robberies during that time in the dorm rooms. The service is poor as you get the impression that the staff just doesn't care. All the rubbish lands in the backyard of the so-called 'resort' not very nice all together.

Best beaches -- 3 great ones to choose from, especially Sunset Beach.
I have stayed here 3 times, just love it and intend to go back for 3wks in 2011. The food is ok -- dorm is basic & clean. Staff helpful when needed but otherwise dont bother guests. I have also stayed at most of the other resorts in Yasawas & Ratu Kini compares best & cheapest from them.

Amazing -- paradise is here!
This place was incredible! I had the best of times there! People from other hostels on the island kept coming to ours to hang out and party (even the people from the expensive resort!). The food was good (and free), the dorms were clean and the staff were nice. There were loads of entertainment (every night something new!). They welcome all the newcomers with a bowl of kava and they introduce you to the rest of the people there. Snorkeling there is crazy (go to sunset beach). Great place! Best I have been in my life!

  I stayed at this backpackers in 1996, I plan to go back there very soon. I have travelled to many countries around the world and mana island in Fiji is one that I really remembered the most, I had such a fantastic time snorkling and have not experienced anything so amazing anywhere else in the world.

  The double room was filthy, matress on the floor for a bed, no proper lock on the door. Dont stay here if you value your property we were robbed whilst sleeping! the police informed us it happens frequently! the dorms have been burnt down there before by the villigers! facilities were dirty and shared with the villiage so always full. Manager was the most unhelpful rude person I have ever met in my entire life!!!!!

  Cool hostel, friendly staff who were very helpful. Great bar at the front where we spent loads of time. Rooms were clean, bathrooms clean but very basic. Cooked meals, again basic, but ok. All made up for by being in paradise, meeting loads of cool people and having a brilliant time!! Watch out for the boat transfer over as they will try and rip you off.

  Myself and my three mates spent four nights at Ratu Kini back in February of this year, and to say we had a fantastic time is an understatement!! We were sorry when we moved onto another island, as we didn't have half as much fun. The staff are wonderful people and I have recommended Mana Island to every person I have spoken to about it. I know I will visit there again. Alison, Tara, Mary and Karen.

  An absolute paradise, everybody is so friendly there. The kids are adorable, say a big hello to Elton and Tomas. I went and stayed on the island twice while on my trip to Fiji.
