    Beautiful but not Comfortable

    We spent 7 nights at Barefoot Manta Island to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. The island is beautiful and the beaches around the resort are fantastic. Snorkeling was pretty good right off the beach. It was relaxing to hear the sounds of swaying coconut palms all night long. For the two of us, retired adults, we booked the only available option at the time, a traditional dorm bure (2 Twin Beds and 1 Twin Bunk Bed). We were assured in writing that we would be the only two people in the room, having paid extra for the other two beds. Unfortunately, a weeks before our stay while we were already in Fiji, there arose much confusion with the resort as they kept insisting that we would be sharing accommodations with other people. At that point we had already paid for our sea plane transfer from Nadi to the resort and found it very stressful trying to sort things our. Another glitch: Our reservation indicated "partially open bathroom and shower". We had previously stayed at another Yasawa resort and quite enjoyed our partially open shower. So it came as a big surprise when it turned out our bure had neither shower nor toilet. We had to walk 450 feet to use shared facilities. Highly inconvenient, especially in the dark. I got completely soaked in the rain needing to use the bathroom at night.

    The resort was wonderful, Expedia were not. Service is over the top, food is fine and the snorkeling is perfect. However, when booking a room, I expect a room. Traditional Dorm had no mention of booking beds only and having to share with 2 strangers. Overall a great holiday, but a little inconvenient

    Great Two Night Stay

    The Traditional Beach Bures on Sunrise Beach have a magnificent view of the beach and Ocean. The wooden Bures are of a very simple buid, but it actually feels really charming and authentic. Staff is great and friendly. Shared facilities are absolutely fine! I would not pay extra for the private bathroom. The reef was truly great for snorkeling. 90+% of corals are intact. Only the amount of fish was a bit disappointing. The food is above average, breakfast is a normal buffet, and lunch and dinners are usually a la carte with choices of 4 mains (chicken, red meat, fish, vegetarian) or sometimes a buffet with good variety. The Manta spot is right next to the island, no other resort is closer. When Mantas are spotted, they will beat the drums and yell "Mantaray". You'll have a few minutes to gather and be taken there by boat. During my stay, there were trips every day and I went on two. Both times were 4-6 Mantas with a wingspan of 3-4 meters. For those choosing between Barefoot and Mantaray: I stayed on both and Barefoot wins hands down. Beaches, the island itself (size, walkability, hangouts... Mantaray is annoyingly built against an incline), accessibility to the Manta spot, the Bures and their location-view, the bars, the facilities - all are better on Barefoot. There are two exceptions where Mantaray exceeds Barefoot: Magnificent choice and quality of food, and more schools of fish when snorkeling. I would choose Barefoot Resort any day!
