Disappointing.Posted Jan 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
We booked this hotel because it was one of two available over New Years at the time. So we took a shot in the dark. At the time it had only a handful of poor reviews. I'm sure that has changed. The location is great. Awesome snorkeling right out front, crystal clear water and a nice sandy beach. Here are the negatives; the food was terrible. We gave them 3 chances at a descent meal. The first two were poor at best, but the third wasn't eddible. And I can eat just about anything. The grounds are in a serious need of a renovation. Which I'm told is coming this February. They were rescently purchased by some company and are getting a complete overhaul. It is much needed. The power and water kept going out sporadically through out the day, which we can look past due to the cyclone that came through a week or so prior to out arrival. Long story short. Stay away from this place until they remodel and change a few basic management ideals.

Old and tiredPosted Jan 4, 2013
Pros: The beach is beautiful
Cons: The service is inconsistent
Fiji time is taken to the extreme , the majority of staff lack professionalism and the property is old and tired. Nothing runs smoothly. Inconsistent. I think that the resort is managed by people with very little experience and training in hospitality and it shows with the frontline staff. Too many hours and too little pay makes for unhappy workers. Overall the people were friendly enough to me and the beach is gorgeous and we still made the most of it and had a wonderful holiday. This is my opinion however go there yourself and make up your own mind. When we were booking accommodation we read many bad reviews about Amunuca but we still went there and took note of some of the tips people gave. Bring snacks, water and any other drinks, torch, book, cards, fun and zen like patience. Go and visit the Villages and make donations. Option of eating at the restaurant at the other resort on the Island, they prefer if you booked for dinner at Tokoriki Island resort restaurant.

Recent stayPosted Dec 31, 2012
Pros: The view
Cons: Fiji time! Everything takes a little longer in Fiji.
The hotel itself is fine; clean and comfortable but relatively basic. The location, however, is magnificent as it right on the edge of the ocean and has stunning views. The pool is great and the food is also pretty good although quite expensive. I would definitely go back to this hotel.
Beautiful island, beautiful peoplePosted Dec 24, 2012 on Hotels.com
We had the most wonderful stay in Amunuca, even though we stayed there during the recent cyclone. The local staff are amazing. Even during the cyclone they stayed with us and looked after us. Incredible people. The resort is fabulous/ beautiful and the food is actually pretty good. We had a lot of the fish and seafood though not sure about the other reviewers. I believe the resort has been bought out however. I really hope it doesnt lose its charm.

Lies and Poor service compared to othersPosted Dec 10, 2012
This place would be a pleasant place to stay at if you are told upfront what to expect. If I walked up to this place and had no expectations (set so high by themselves) you would really enjoy it but not because of what they have on offer but because the island itself is gorgeous. the views amazing. They however like to deceive and lie, selling "deep sea fishing" and "Dolphin safaris" when after speaking to some local laughed at the notion that they could market such a thing. fishing here and there but the dolphin safaris is a flat out lie!!!! They do not have anything on site, no bikes, no horses, no water skiing, no para sailing, no sailing on site.

family with a 2 year old and a 5 month old babyPosted Dec 3, 2012
Pros: beautiful ocean, very friendly staff
Cons: playground was rusty
Beautiful quiet boutique resort, with very friendly and charming staff who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Food was great. Beach and reef is amazing. Second time back for us, and we were treated so well with a free upgrade, and complimentary massage and champagne and fruit platter. Beachfront rooms are great with easy access to beach, and amazing views. Kids loved it, and so did we!! This is one of the better resorts in the mamanucas!

Stunning locationPosted Nov 16, 2012
Pros: Stunning location
Amanuca is a pleasant resort with friendly staff in a stunning tropical location. Some of the hotel infrastructure may be a little worn, but the location more than compensates for any lack of flash. Go with an open mind and you'll be charmed by the warmth and constant music of the people who staff the hotel -- and blown away by the location.
So RelaxingPosted Nov 13, 2012 on Hotels.com
The island was so relaxing. From the welcome by the staff on the beach with a song and shell necklaces to having the beach and snorkling right out side your door, the resort was beautiful. We loved our own bure with a short stretch of garden and lawn leading on to the beach with our own little beach hut and lounge chairs and snorkling right off the beach. The staff were amazing and as it it a small resort the staff know your name and are a wonderful welcome at meal times and around the grounds. This is not a five star but if relaxing and a little bit of time together to do nothing is what you want, this is it. The food is good , the drinks are great, the snorkling is good, there are water sports and scuba on and around the island and there are activities and excursions to other islands everyday as well as an on site spa. We had one of the Loloma Bures with the spa bath which was so nice. There is an adults only pool which is essential when you've seen the other hotels with only one pool and many screeming kids. The Castaway Island tour had amazing snorkling. Highly recommend this resort. We also staied at a couple of others, one of the big ones at Denaru, which was lovely but very impersonal and covered with children on the weekend and the other a 3 star down the coral coast which again was smothered with children both had only one pool and the staff were not as personable.

A lovely 3 star resort. Great for families with daily children's activities. Quiet areas for couples. Book out of school holiday time if you don't want to be with lots of children. Food and wine prices good. Wine shop in resort and purchases allowed plus corkage fee for serving at dinner. Wifi available throughout at moderate charge. Very friendly, helpful staff. Spacious, clean, comfortable bures.

buy mePosted Sep 23, 2012
Unfortunately this resort is in the hands of receivers, and is in much need of a take over to bring the resort back to it's full potential, whilst we enjoyed the beach and pool area, the rest of the resort was sad & in need of major maitenence.. meals were fine & the option to eat at Tokoriki was a plus. This is in no way a criticism of the local Fijian staff who are doing their best to make every day a happy friendly experience..
