10/10 Exceptional

Mantaray Island Resort is unlike any commercial resort we’ve ever been to, but was very special in that way. This is a resort for social adventurers, and the staff are the key. They are social, kind, compassionate, funny, and full of life! Everything is organized around meals which are carefully planned & rotated with fresh ingredients & flavors! There is not a wide selection because of the remoteness, but they do their best to accommodate everyone’s special needs. We thought every meal was fabulous, but we are not picky. The resort is fronted with a beach on a shallow marine reserve, best snorkeled at high tide, but they offer paddle boards & kayaks to explore the bay and easily get out to deeper water or other nearby beaches. The opposite beach in the rear of the resort is a softer quiet beach with bigger waves, but is also shallow water & is not great for a swim. We took advantage of all the snorkeling in front of the resort as well as on guided morning tours, to about 5 different locations. The reefs & marine life are absolutely in abundance! We would have tried a dive if able. There are lots of other activities offered, and the staff are great fun in leading all! However, again, this is a remote island. Not all rooms have AC or a bathroom. Be careful in choosing, as there are limited availabilities of rooms. There is a central bath w/ shower stalls & sinks, and no-flush toilets - all community. We saw a lot of grumpy guests who had not read those details. Very clean tho.

We loved the beach front Jungle Burre. The outlook was superb. Staff were so good and friendly. Activities were great. Manta Ray and reef snorkelling were out of this world.

Mantaray Island - Fiji
We stayed in a 2 person private bure about 30 steps from the beach, it was very nice. the food in this hotel was EXCELLENT! Drinks seem overpriced at times. Overall a good experience. One tip: If booking this hotel to swim with Mantarays call the week before and see if they had any activity. Highly recommend the snorkel trip they offer. Make sure you have an underwater camera.

2/10 Poor

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.
