Recent reviews

Superb 9,0 From 38 reviews

Good 6,0
It was OK but was it worth the cost?
Our stay was OK but in our opinion it was not 4 star and definitely not worth $390 per night. The bed was comfortable but the sheets were pilled; the outdoor shower was excellent, the bathroom looked like it had been recently upgraded but the curtains were not black-out, the hems were diwn and there was lots of dust etc visible under the bed; tea and coffee making facilities were available as was a bar fridge and air con. The gardens were beautifully kept and there's a great restaurant on site. A basic breakfast is available as part of the room charge. A car/bike hire office is opposite and the once per hour bus runs oast the driveway. There is no free wifi and the swimming pool was surprisingly very cold. Reef shoes are available for walking in the lagoon.

We had a great laid back Island stay. The pool was a big plus for me. All of the staff were very accommodating.

Manuia Beach Resort - thumbs up!
This was a great location for sunsets and beachfront eating and relaxing by the pool. The accomodation was comfortable but not luxury, however the service was very friendly. A good location to be near shops, airport, port, markets and there is a car and scooter rental across the road which was very affordable. Overall good experience.
