Great little place to stay for the price. Hospitality was great. Included Meals were good and filling. Did have a leak in our burre and corner of the bed was wet. But that was the only thing. Fantastic budget accommodation

My friend and I enjoyed our stay at Funky Fish. The meals were a generous size & delicious and the resort is well situated right on the beach. You'll be happy staying here if you can get used to Fiji time and don't expect a fancy resort... the rooms are basic but what I would expect for a 2 star resort with a cheap price. A few things to note: 1. We came from Port Denarau. Be sure to book ahead and arrive to the port on time otherwise you may have to pay $50 extra fee per person. The boat dropped us at Beachcomber Resort and the boat to Funky Fish didn't arrive for a few hours - there was no warning this would happen. However Beachcomber has a beautiful beach so we enjoyed a swim while waiting. 2. The boats from Funky Fish are small and fully open with only a little shade. Be prepared to get saturated if a rain storm hits! (the guys wrapped our luggage in plastic). 3. On the way back to Denarau, the boat took us from Funky Fish to Musket Cove, and from there we got a ticket for the Malolo Cat, which is a big ferry and costs more than the initial transfer.

2/10 Poor

this place needs to be shut down. From the anti vaccer bus driver to the $200 ferry ticked that was a dinghy with food in it. The room we booked not available. After saying we booked a larger room were show a one room filthy apartment up 50 rickety old steps and told we were upgraded. Same thing happened to 3 others while we were there. Food disgacefull , old fruit sometimes juice that was powdered cordial and sliced toast with jam portions or peanut butter. On the last day no butter. For the surfers and thats why it was booked after an early morning surf never back before breakfast over as only open 7- 9, Nothing else available. Staff unhelpful and pretend everything okay.. This has been going on for years just check old reviews. Had I know I would have got the boat to Musgrove Island but did not have any idea it was possible. Its boring dangerous overpriced filthy. DO NOT GO THEIR YOU WILL BE DISSAPOINTED.

10/10 Exceptional

I LOVED Chef Max's dishes...every one was delicious. I was so grateful for Captain Bill taking us snorkeling, and getting us to Nadi for the day (we grabbed some bread for the breakfast bar next morning at the bakery while we were there!) and got a special dip in the ocean as a reward. :) Wati and Dave and Lumeli, the Manager, the whole place, in fact! are all wonderful. It honestly felt like family. Ana took care of housekeeping in our very simple but spacious and airy 2 bed beachfront bure. I loved the shower off the main house, with the private airy view of the trees above. Cat lovers will love the several kitties on property; dog lovers will love the neighbor's sweet rescues that walk the beach each day. Everyone comes for the legendary surf offshore. Stay for the warmth of Funky Fish. Seriously.

6/10 Good

Staff at Funky Fish were all extremely friendly and accommodating. Meals by Chef Max were delicious, and he was able to make adjustments for our gluten free friend. BEWARE OFF-SCHEDULE BOAT TRANSFERS We purchased and confirmed in person an off-schedule boat transfer back to Nadi airport in order to make an afternoon flight. We were told that this transfer would leave at 11am in order to make our 3pm flight. Granted there is always "Fiji Time" to take into account, but this transfer did not leave until 12:30pm. The boat was tiny and extremely overloaded (12 people + luggage when it should have been maybe 8 people max) leaving in very rough seas. One passenger was injured en route and we had to pull behind Malamala Beach Club island to wait for a larger boat. Why was this larger boat not sent in the first place??? Needless to say we did not make our flight, there was only 1 room available that we could find in the greater Nadi area ($1,000/night), we and our luggage were soaking wet from water splashing over the sides for 4 hours, and no one from Funky Fish seemed to care at all that the transfer we paid almost 3x more to take cascaded into the worst day of travel hell that anyone in our group had ever experienced. Organize your own transfer if you need to be somewhere by a specific time. Don't pay Funky Fish to almost drown you and your belongings.
