      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

      Hi i think there needs to be more educational talks with the people who come to stay about them standing on the reef when they are going for a snorkel. There was lots of gests standing all over the corals when stayed there and that was only for three days. May be there should only be one point of entry into the water from the beach so some of the reef can grow back. It was a shame to see alot of dead coral.

    • 8.0.Very good

      The property was beautiful and unique, set on the beach and extending up a lush tropical hillside. The staff was kind and friendly, the beachfront villas were amazing, and the scuba trips were great. Our only criticism would be in regards to the restaurant and the service provided. While we expected the pace of meals to be more relaxed in Fiji, we were disappointed with the sporadic delivery of food to our party, in every meal we had gaps of upwards of 45 minutes between the first and last person being served. It was very difficult to enjoy the great meals at Mantaray while the service to our party was so poor.

      Treehouse was beautiful and perfect walk right out onto the beach. The fan inside was a definite plus during the hottest hours. No bugs or mosquitos got through the protection on the windows and door. The only improvement would be to have a proper fitted sheet on the beds, as the sheets were regular not fitted and too small for the double bed, often coming off the mattress while sleeping.

    • 6.0.Good

      Negatives: Upon check-in, we were told the resort's meal plan fee was $20 more than that stated at the time of reservation via our Expedia booking. Staff said they raised the prices April 1. I argued We didn't make the reservation until after April 1, so the price stated should have been accurate. Staff would not accept the booking price quoted us by the Expedia booking for the required meal plan fee and said we needed to resolve the issue with Expedia. "Private toilet" in the bungalow room was a non-flushing porta-potty. Although the room was pretty, the Bathroom was not cleaned well. Bed was springy like a cot. Shower floor in room was made of round rocks and very uncomfortable to stand on. Meal plan fee too high for quality and amount of food received. Three choices for dinner. The meals took an hour to get and both were cold upon arrival. Lunch could order from a menu; chicken Caesar salad was unsatisfying. Breakfast was served buffet style. Positives: Snorkeling from right off the beach was Amazing! Could swim 20 ft from shore and find brilliant corals or all colors! Fresh flowers in the room were a nice touch. Bungalow proximity to beach is excellent.

      We loved our stay at Manta Ray Island Reaort! We booked it thinking it was more of a busget properly, a backpacker resort. It does have accommodations in a dorm if thats what you are looking for. We stayed in a Beach Villa for 4 nights, and we were very pleasantly surprised. Our stay rhere exceeded our expectations. Food was really good, staff very welcoming & friendly, activities (as much or as little as you wanted - don't miss snorkel trip to the "Garden" & "Wall"). In addition, snorkeling right out front of our Beach Villa was also amazing, as was our massages by Pauline ☺ Vinaka & Moce to our Manta Ray home & family.

      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.

      Lovely people (and manta rays)

      Wonderful resort! We stayed in a Reef bure with coastal views so the view in itself was worth every penny ;-). Lots of opportunities to snorkle right in front of the resort. Food was good too. Staff is extremely helpful and super friendly, without being overbearing (it's a thin line so great job!).
