budget accomodation great place to base yourself.

Pros: Staff were very friendly like most fijiians,Sosi was especially helpful.
Cons: A la cart lunch menu could use a freshen up,greasy fish and chips not the best.
Location: Location was very close to cloud nine and numerous other activities .Mangrove area around the resort attracted the mozzies.
Very basic place with friendly staff and likeminded travellers,the water in front may be disappointing but you are based where a 20 min boat ride will have you surfing ,snorkelling or diving pristine clear waters.Dinners are great with the buffet choices,breakfast included was basic but adequate,6.00 am start for those surfing cloudbreak,wilkes etc,was disappointed with lunch at times but the burgers were a safe choice.

Friendly, fun and relaxed

Pros: Friendliness of staff, always interested, remembering names, and up for a chat. Their priority always seemed to be ensuring their guests were happy.
As a solo traveller, Funky Fish was the perfect resort for me. The staff were so friendly and helpful, I felt very welcomed and looked after, especially with dietary requirements! There were many opportunities to join in water activities like snorkelling, paddle boarding, surfing trips, and my favourite - the Cloud 9 trip. It was so relaxing, I have lovely memories, thanks guys!
