|Mana island was STUNNING. We had a fabulous time and would definitely recommend it. Only let down was the food- pretty average but everything else was amazing, esp the ocean front suite we stayed in. GORGEOUS!! I WANNA GO BACK........|
We must have been there at the same time.
You wouldnt happen to be the honeymoon couple next door to us who loves fishing would you?

but ive heard such mixed reviews on it that the only conclusion i could come up with is that it depends on the person...
my FSIL and her SIL both went to fiji.. castaway, treasure..etc etc..
they absolutly HATED it with a passion.. dirty, smelly,
she described mana island as redfern station...
and looovvveedd the OUTRIGGER
(but we are talking about materialistic Bit%#es here...)
where as other ppl have said.. they dont like the mainland but love the
islands... and cant stop bragging about castaway... etc etc
i guess u wont know untill you try...
i personally think that it would be gorgeous.. and its your honeymoon so how bad can it be??? plus ive seen the photos too looks stunning
we suggested NY for our honeymoon and everyone was like.. "why spend all that money to be walking in a city.. etc etc no beach bla bla.. its ur honeymoon.."
personally we arnt the beach type.. well we are but we'd love to go to USA..
so go with your heart.... hun

| Hi Rose,|
Definately the islands! They are gorgeous! Ive also stayed on the Coral Coast but preferred the islands. Less to do though then the mainland so depends on how much relaxing you want to do. We are staying at Tokoriki but Ive heard Castaway is also great.
omg, our travel agent wanted to send us to Tokoriki but we couldn't afford it

We first stayed at The Warwick Fiji for 4 nights. Yes it was a long trip there, but it was worth it. If you decide to stay anywhere on the coral coast, try to time your flights so that you arrive in the morning.
And I do not recommend getting full meal packages. We did and we found that if you really wanted to get into the various activities (no matter where you stay in Fiji) that you may end up paying for lunches that you won't consume eg. we went on a village tour and they provided a lovo feast, so we didn't have lunch at the resort that day. And as for dinner, at The Warwick, if you had a meal package, you were limited to one restaurant for dinner, whereas we would have liked to of dined in the Seafood Restaurant at least once.
Our next 4 nights were spent at Treasure Island Resort. This is a tiny island that you can walk around in no time...........we loved it. Treasure Island is the Simple Things In Life (or it goes something like that) you are encouraged to participate participate participate in the nightly activities, there are no phones or televisions in the rooms and the staff/food etc are terrific. We got the full meal package there and didn't miss a single meal (but had we gone on day trips etc, some of it would have been a waste) The food there was outstanding, we ate like Kings. Lunch/Dinner could be three course meals if you wished and there were different dining options.
Like someone else said, the beaches on the islands are far better than the mainland. We found the beach at The Warwick to have alot of pebbles. You get whiter sand on the islands too.
If you are interested in shopping etc on the mainland, I would time things so that you can spend an entire day shopping if required. If you do day trips from islands to the mainland, it takes up too much time with all of the travel etc.
If you want to know anything else, feel free to email me.
edit................. and I nearly forgot, we had the BEST bure on Treasure Island. As my husband put it, we were ten man paces from the beach and we would leave our door slightly open at night (but with the louvre doors/sheer curtains pulled across and could hear the water) Other guests were envious of our Bure and even approached us at dinner one night to comment! hahahaha.

They have hired a car to drive around the island for 3 days. They said that you can use your australian licence because the cars drive on the left hand side.
